Character Description and History

Once, in the village of Secomber, I was a farmer named Took BriarThorne. It was here that I met and lost my love beneath a great willow. Adroline was of such beauty that I believe even elven men would have fallen to their knees at the sight of her.

One night as we walked past that same great willow a shadow stretched forth from the branches. As it stepped into the moonlight we could see that it was a vampire. Its fangs were sharp and its eyes full of more bloodlust than even my grandmother's stories told of.

I picked up a stick and made to strike at it, but I was batted aside like I was no more than a gnat. As I lay whimpering in the shadows I heard my love scream in agony. I heard the sound of blood and innocence being devoured.

As the beast turned toward me I heard the sound of a sword being drawn. The creature leapt away from me and after a long battle finally retreated. I was lifted and carried to an inn where my wounds were cared for. When my fear subsided and my eyes could open again I saw sitting beside me Treskar Selarn, the ranger who protects Secomber.

Treskar told me that though he had been able to save me, Adroline had become one of those dark souls of the night, a vampire. He spoke as if it were his failure, but I knew it had been mine. My fear and weakness had failed Adroline when this ranger's strength and courage would have saved her. That night I swore to avenge Adroline and to free her from the darkness by whatever means necessary.

Once, in Secomber, I was a coward named Took BriarThorne. Now I am a ranger called Abbadon. I am bound by blood and love to search for the end of all vampires and the freedom of my love from her curse.
