The Thrice-Cursed Traitors refers to warbands of the Sons of Horus which turned their back on Abaddon the Despoiler and instead chose to either remain true to the memory of Horus or forsake all masters.[1b]

When Abaddon's Black Legion was still weak, these Sons of Horus were among Abaddon's staunchest enemies and tried to hunt him down. As the Legion War progressed, however, the Black Legion became increasingly powerful and most of the remaining Sons of Horus either bent the knee or were destroyed by Abaddon.[2] The remaining Thrice-Cursed Traitors ultimately vanished into the Eye of Terror, and most were probably lost to the Warp. A few warbands eventually resurfaced, with most pursuing their own agendas; some even prospered.[1a] There were also instances when Thrice-Cursed Traitors attempted to challenge Abaddon's rule over the Black Legion or joined its ranks at long last.[1a][1b]

Known Warbands include:
