The Black Shepherd
Obviously the Stats for a God or Goddess will be Unknown until the time of their encounter. so until then, you will not know the extent of their power!
The mere utterance strikes fear into the hearts of most mortals, yet he is essential to the life cycle of all. Abaddon is said to be the manifestation of rot, death, and oblivion made incarnate into the form of a hellish god. Abaddon was not birthed by divine means, but rather manifested as a pale rider from the Font of Avernus, a passage between the mires of his hellish plane, and the material plane. He is known as the Black Shepherd for his role of herding the souls of the dead to his plane of hell for dispersion among the gods. Most of the souls fall under his jurisdiction, however even he gives the faithful to the rightful goddess when they perish.
Abaddon is the patron god of Death, Rot, Illness, and Blood, and is praised by undertakers, grave-diggers, and everyone else who works the deeds of death. On special occasion Abaddon works with his cohort Sicarius in ensuring assassinations in an orderly fashion.
Abaddon can take many forms, a feat the other gods rarely use. However, he uses this form to inform the dying of their dwindling time, or to issue forewarning to those blessed by his cold touch.
He is currently in possession of Holy Mother Cypria’s visage, which has been a point of contention for the past two years of occupation.
