Abaddon is an Entity.

DescriptionEdit

Abaddon was smaller than the Thinker or the Warrior, and had a different form.[1] It still held a vast amount of information.[2]

Abilities Edit

Abaddon travelled using a different means to the Thinker and the Warrior,[1] mainly through propulsion rather than the spatial warping that the others did.[3]

Its divergent evolution was such that communication was initially difficult between itself and the Thinker entity.[4] The creatures have almost incalculable processing power.

Thanks to Abaddon's contribution Eden was able to understand concepts more intricate than simple conflict.[5]

History Edit

Deep BackgroundEdit

The Entities first arose on a grey, silty world, which they destroyed and rode the explosion out to new worlds.[6]

Abaddon's line had remained a singular traveler of space and it had visited fewer worlds than the Warrior Entity or the Thinker Entity[7]

BackgroundEdit

It sensed Eden and Zion on their way to earth, Abaddon asked to exchange information with them.[4] Eden accepted engaging in an exchange of shards.[8] Because of this Eden became distracted and crashed into several earths.

Abaddon then continued on to its destination on, presumably, the opposite end of the universe.[9]

ImpactEdit

Contessa's shard is, presumably, still actively linked to Abaddon.[10][11]

Doctor Mother mentions that the shards Eden obtained during the exchange, a "foreign element", tended to yield powers without standard restrictions when administered to Cauldron subjects.[12] These may have been unincorperated shards from Abaddon.

Trivia Edit

  • The name "Abaddon" is not used in the text or chapter tags, but has been used by Wildbow.[13]
  • Abaddon would have made an appearance in another quest after PRT Quest had concluded.[14]

  1. 1.0 1.1 A member of their own species, approaching. It was smaller, took a different form. It used different means to travel. - Excerpt from Interlude 26
  2. They meet violently. As their ancestors did, they share with one another in a violent fashion, crashing together, breaking shard from shard.

    This entity knows right away that there is a wealth of information here. But there must be cooperation, information given for information. - Excerpt from Interlude 29
  3. The third entity travels more through momentum than by insinuation. It expends vast quantities of power to change course. - Excerpt from Interlude 29
  4. 4.0 4.1 Agreement, this entity is distracted in responding. It is receiving another broadcast.

    A third.

    The communication is almost alien, a member of their species, but long distant, from countless cycles ago.

    It hesitates, then signals its own location.

    Exchange. Meet.

    The response is garbled. Takes time to analyze. - Excerpt from Interlude 29
  5. This entity sees new possibilities, now. Not simply conflict, but philosophy and psychology. Imagination. It is in these new patterns of thought that it can see a possibility for the future. - Excerpt from Interlude 29
  6. Interlude 26
  7. Its ancestors had traveled a different path, easily hundreds of cycles ago, before the entities had begun traveling in pairs. This new arrival had encountered different worlds, less worlds, and it had developed differently. - Excerpt from Interlude 26
  8. The lesser one crossed paths with the entity’s counterpart. For a duration, they intertwined, meeting through multiple realities, their bodies rubbing and crushing against one another.

    A sharing of details, a wealth of knowledge, from hundreds of cycles. A sacrifice of the same.

    The lesser one moves on, bloated with new shards and knowledge, but the counterpart flounders. - Excerpt from Interlude 26
  9. They break apart. The third entity continues its path, moving to a distant star, its path perpendicular to the pair’s. - Excerpt from Interlude 29
  10. It looked at the female, and it saw a shard that wasn’t its own, but wasn’t dead. - Excerpt from Interlude 26
  11. They can alter the shards they put out there, before the shards hae[sic] mature, because a connection is maintained. No connection = 'dead' shard. - Wildbow on Spacebattles
  12. “There is a foreign agent in them.  The entity altered each power he granted to give them certain restrictions.  No power would be able to truly affect him, no power would cross the boundaries he set in dimension, or in affecting other powers.  There are no alterations to the elements in these, only to the accompanying abilities, or complimentary powers.  The powers granted from these vials don’t cause the recipients to forget the visions they see.  Eidolon was one such case.  The extreme deviant cases on the special containment floor make up much of the remainder.” - Excerpt from Venom 29.7

  14. 7. or the last continent, Antartica, well, imagine staring out at the Aurora Borealis, a shadow passes over a star. Abbadon, heading to a non-Earth planet. - Comment by Wildbow on Reddit
