Default How can there be Possessed Marines in a Thousand Sons army?

Fluff-wise, how could possessed be tolerated in a "pure" Thousand Sons force? I mean, the purpose of Ahriman's Rubric was to stop the rampant mutation and whatnot in the Legion, so it seems odd that Possessed Marines/sorcerors would be OK now... What, just because Ahriman's been banished, let's just devolve/mutate into Spawn? :P

The sorcerers can still be targeted, I imagine. Truthfully enough, Possessed don't belong in a Thousand Sons army list; I just never really thought of it before.

Fluff wise? They don't. But if the rules allow it, then some fluff ignoring gamers will do it.

But hey, these things happen.

Chaos Marines always have their fingers dabbling in The Warp right? Well Sorceror Marines basically have their whole arm in. It's inevitable that the less-skilled and overconfident ones get themselves posessed.

I've always thought of it myself like this: The Mighty Sorcerers of Magnus' Thousand Sons simply turn the inferior marines of other legions into possessed to do their bidding. After all why wield the power of the warp if your not gonna have any fun with it?

True and completely relevant to 40K
It could be that they are thousand sons who "failed" some task or another, so mutation was punishment, and they are kept as an example.

Or they skived off when Ahriman was casting his doohicky of dust.

Or they are sorcerers, and as such weren't affected by the spell. Only the marines with no powers were dustified.

And then of course they would be tolerated because Tzeentch said so. End of.

Yes but technicly none of the Thousand sons are Wizards they are sorcerors and so Xena was refering to Empire battle wizards... or something like that
