Traigo is a Death World in the Quintillus System which is located just outside Segmentum Solar. During the Horus Heresy, it became one of the many worlds fought over by the armies of the Imperium and Horus.[1]

Traigo is tidally locked to its sun and as a result one side of the world is a scorched, uninhabitable wasteland and the other half is a frozen unforgiving environment. In this grim and unholy place, the remnants of a Human population, descended from colonies that were created before disaster struck Traigo, survive in the Death World's frozen half; most rarely live past their teens. Due to this harsh environment, Traigo became a recruitment world for the Space Marine Legions during the Great Crusade. However, when the Horus Heresy began, this also made it a target for the Warmaster's forces. Though many of the Traitor Primarchs refused to recruit from anywhere save their own homeworlds, they sought to deny such a resource to the Imperium, when they arrived en masse in the Qunitillus System. Like all the worlds in its system, Traigo's final fate is unknown.[1]
