Estaban III is a Forge World and the third planet in the Estaban System. It is home to the Legio Tempestor.[1]

History

Though it is stated as a homeworld of the Legio Tempestor, during the Horus Heresy, the world was home to a machine cult known as the "Teleologicalica" which rejected the Emperor as the Omnissiah. Estaban III forged close ties with the treacherous Legio Tempestus Princeps Maximus Karania and sided with the traitors. Thereafter, the Forge World became the base for treacherous Legio Tempestus elements.[4b] At some point during the Horus Heresy or the Great Scouring, Estaban III was ultimately retaken by the Imperium; loyalist Blackshields who had once been Night Lords played a major role in this campaign.[4a]

In 751.M41, Estaban was invaded by the forces of Chaos but saved by the Iron Hands and Legio Tempestor.[2][3]
