Default Horus's corpse. (question)

Just curious where this fluff came from. Was it a book, in hammer and bolter, what?

Ab grabs Horus's body after he is utterly destroyed by the Emp. By utterly destroyed I assume that means his soul, but his physical body is still there. The Son's of Horus run off to the Eye of Terror.

Here is where things get a little fuzzy for me. I am not sure where I had read this (as in a forum, or looking it up on the internet - not a book), but some other chaos legion steals Horus's body and creates a clone with it.

Ab is pissed, finds the ones who stole Horus's body. Kills them and the clone body.

Ok, where does this fluff come from? Or was I roofied with acid in college and this is all in my head?

Fabious Bile of the Emperor's Children clones Horus.

Abaddon kills him somehow.

It's mentioned in the 6th Chaos codex or Index Astartes I believe.

Its mentioned in loads of sources: codices and the IA article amongst them.

The Emperor destroys Horus's soul. Abaddon leads a raid to recover the corpse, and then leads the retreat into the Eye of Terror. The Sons of Horus are preyed upon by several other Legions during the inter-legionary wars and Horus's corpse is stolen by the Emperor's Children who produce several clones. Abaddon becomes the new Warmaster and leads a raid against the Emperor's Children, destroying the clones of Horus in the process. That's pretty much it.

I assume that the clone-Horus must be less powerful than the real thing or how did Abaddon beat them?

Clone Horus sees Abaddon walk into the room.

"Ouh hi my son! How incredibly nice to see you again it is! Wait, what are you doing with that twin linked plasma-las-multimelta kill thin-"

BOOM!

"Wait, wa-"

BOOM!

"C`mon now, what are you doing my so-"

BOOM!

Hopefully ADB explains how exactly Abaddon destroys supposedly perfect clones of Horus. Multiple copies.

And more importantly whether or not those clones were content with their existence and about being created by a lesser being.

In an ironic reversal of the emperor and horus final hour?

Sort of.

The Horusians are a subfaction of the Thorians, who believe that there are great individuals, such as Sebastien Thor through whom the Emperor has manifested some of his power. They're trying to find an avatar strong enough for the Emperor to fully manifest.

The Horusians believe the same thing but want to achieve it using the warp and chaos. They see Horus as an example of how powerful one can be supped up on warp energy. They'd like to do the same but make a 'good' avatar for the Emperor to manifest into. They're at the extreme end of the radical spectrum; using chaos to fight chaos.

As an aside is anyone else hankering for a book exploring all these subfactions of the inquisition and its internal turmoil. I thought all the subfaction stuff and infighting was one of the best parts of the Inquisitor game system's fluff.

Never heard of the Horusians. I thought Gothik was mistaken and was referring to the Sensei/Illuminati.
