Cthonia

From 1d4chan

Cthonia (meaning underworld or underground in Greek) was the homeworld of the Luna Wolves/Sons of Horus. A mining world reachable from Terra at sub-light speeds, it was mined out by the Age of Strife and stripped of the mining equipment by the Mechanicum of Mars. There was literally nothing left to do but organize into loose gangs and stab each other. Horus landed here, but didn't stay on the planet long enough to conquer or fix it. As a youth, he discovered what would be the Talon of Horus on the advice of an old crone, pretty much the only other interesting thing that happened on this world and thus naturally not explored in the fluff. The Emperor found him while looking for recruits of good gene-stock, and the planet was left in anarchy to help train future Legion aspirants.

After the Horus Heresy, it got Exterminatus-ed in case something there might have contributed to Horus's corruption.
