Abaddon is the Lord of Winterhaven as was his father before him. He is admired by the people and his soldiers would lay theirs live down to protect him. A natural leader and born to be a fighter, he is a larger than life figure. His name and exploits are well known in the Vale. Some would argue that the gods themselves have a purpose for him.
As a young man, Abaddon slayed a red dragon that was threatening the town. As it swept down from its perch on Cairngorm Peaks, Abaddon met it head on, saving the town from a certain death. The battle lasted for hours and almost cost him his life. In the end Abaddon was the victor. Thus was born his name “Abaddon The Slayer”. The carcass was buried a short distance to the south. The dragons lair has never been found.
