As the gang rule states, he would have to murder his best friend to advance in the organization’s ranks. Abaddon refused to complete the task, killing his father in the process.
However, Abaddon was not able to escape. He was soon discovered and taken in by two Luna Wolves legionaries, Hastur Sejanus and Syrakul. He pledged service to his primarch Horus. He was declared guilty but he pleaded for service instead of death.
Horus agreed and he was sent to Luna to be converted into a Space Marine in the glorious 16th Legion As tartes. The legendary Abaddon was a natural soldier, a peerless warrior, and a redoubtable commander. His reputation was boosted by being one of several legionaries known as the sons of Horus.
