Described as small and shabby, Absolom was within the Gorgonopsii Maestrale region of space. During the Horus Heresy it became a battleground when it was assaulted by forces by the Dark Mechanicum. Loyalist Adeptus Mechanicus stood in its defense, and during the battle the Legio Castigatra and accompanying Skitarii and Taghmata forces battled their traitor Legio Audax and Ordo Reductor counterpart. At the height of the battle the loyalist Warmonger Titan Tantorus Magnificat led a rampage through a traitor-occupied Hive city, but was harpooned and brought down by the wolf pack tactics of Legio Audax Warhound Titans under the command of Princeps Balthus Voltemand. After the Warmonger was brought down, traitor Thallax warriors boarded the Titan with the intent to capture it. However the loyalist crew instead overloaded their plasma reactor, causing a catastrophic meltdown that wiped out the Legio Audax forces in the area.
