Is he one and the same as Abaddon the Despoiler? namesake? no relation at all? I started Horus Rising today and that is nagging at me bad. Thanks

o..k..., what's with the fluff in the CSM codex saying that Abaddon is thought to possibly be a clone of Horus? Perhaps I 'm remembering it wrong.....if so slap the shit out me now! Thanks

he is one of the " sons of horus" luna wolves, as some of the luna wolves bore a striking resemblance to their primarch.

Don't think it does. Aximand is the one who bears the most resemblance to Horus after all, even being nicknamed Little Horus, but even then i don't think its ever implied any of them are cloned.

If it's not implied in Horus rising it's most certainly mentioned in false Gods or Galaxy in Flames. I'm almost positive it's mentioned in one of them, but I could be wrong.

I'm almost certain none of the Horus Heresy books make any implication to any of them having been cloned from Horus. Obviously i can't really thoroughly confirm that without reading all of the first 3, but im still pretty sure they don't

All the Luna Wolves and later the Sons of Horus are lesser clones of their genefather, or Primogenitor - Horus Lupercal; whether or not they were chosen from the populance of Cythion (Spelling?) or were created from Terra and were the original Luna Wolves (Of whom Iacton Qruze was the last?) However, Horus Aximand, or Little Horus, resembled his genefather even more so than his brothers within the Mournival - Hence the nickname.

I should probably read Horus Rising once more to fully digress what is written there, but... the above is a summarative, albeit slightly crude, account.

Spelling. His name is Ezekyle, not Ezekiel. (EZ-uh-KYLE) :)

I don`t recall any mention of cloning in the HH novels, but it was mentioned as a rumour in the previous Chaos Codex (the awesome one that included real daemons).

Maybe that`s where you saw it?

It could be Little Horus actually now that you mention it, but like pb100 I thought it was hinted that Abaddon was a clone in one of the three first hh novels or some vague reference to it. But yeah I have no intention of re reading them either.

It is even mentioned in the current C:CSM that Abaddon may be a clone of Horus.

He isn't a clone of Horus any more than Lokin was.

may be a clone? sorry... no. none of the Luna Wolves were 'clones' of Horus. There is nothing in Horus Heresy series so far to say that any of them are. A rumor in a CSM codex does not eclipse the HH series, which is to be considered cannon.

The codices are just as 'canon' as the heresy series, and in fact just as much as anything else with a GW or BL logo printed on it. Just because it hasn't thus far been mentioned in the heresy series (if memory serves) doesn't mean the rumour (which has been around for many years now, passing through several chaos codicies) doesn't mean it should be discredited.

Well, if he is a Horus clone (and I'm not saying he is), it would make some sense as to why he was so desperate to stop anyone else from cloning Horus after the heresy. Maybe he didn't want the competition of another clone muscling in on what he thought was his rightful inheritance as ruler of the Black Legion. But again, this is pure speculation on my part. Hopefully the Horus Heresy series will shed some light on this at some stage.

even if it turns out he isnt, its a damn good bet that he planted the rumour in the Imperium.
Think about it, thats damn good psychological warfare right there, Horus being the proverbal anti-christ to the Imperial High Command and all, the lords of terra probably brick it just thinking about it.
