Practice of Sedition
In a world built upon a foundation of conflict, the past year has been notably violent. As Crux Fidelis, the Crusaders and ruling faction of Sium, suffer heavy losses from a particularly bloody Aphelion, other factions are emboldened to take action. Despite being allies, Weltschmerz's ambitious and duplicitous nature sees them taking bigger risks which threaten to break their alliance. All the while, Apocrypha continues to gain public sympathy and support while the Black Sun Cabal and Poena Damni continue to wreak havoc. As Sium races towards yet another conflict, it’s evident that a war lurks on the horizon.

weapons
---Bellicosa // Amore
Abel's Bellicosa has taken the form of a small combat knife. Simple in design, the blade has a blackened appearance that seems hard to look at directly.

When activated, Amore's blade turns translucent. Afterwards, Abel's being seems to vanish. He loses all scent and even the trained eye would have difficulty even spotting him there, because his sillage and spirit are being clouded by the ghost of his wife infused within his own soul. In effect, to any method of detection, he seems to become someone else.

It doesn't perfectly hide any form of killing intent or keep his attacks invisible; rather, it is an ability that just keeps the user from detection in an imperfect and unorthodox way.

---Weaponry
In addition to his blade, Abel also carries a slew of other weapons with him - a few hand crossbows, other knives, and a small variety of trap-making supplies such as wire.
abilities
---Second Life
Abel is hard to kill. He has, in essence, two living souls within his flesh body; killing him once isn't enough to end his existence. Any kind of death that doesn't destroy the body, such as being shot or stabbed, will eventually heal at a slow pace. He doesn't actively use this nor approve of it; it is an involuntary response he has no control of. This can be countered by simply destroying his body entirely, or waiting and killing him twice in a short period of time. The 'second life' takes a large amount of sillage, and it can take weeks for this ability to 'recharge'.

---Illusions
Abel's skills are best suited to stealth and espionage, and as a young man he had an affinity for tricking people into seeing what they want to see. For the most part he is simply able to affect small moments, such as changing what a person sees or ignoring something out of the corner of their eye.

With some serious effort, Abel is able to put someone in a more serious illusion, usually pulling forth a dream or fantasy situation to live out for a brief moment. This never lasts long, however, and it has notable flaws for the person seeing the illusion.

---Ice Magic
A leftover from the fusing of sillage and soul with his wife, he has extremely limited applications of her icy magics. Under normal circumstances he can simply summon small ice daggers or freeze door locks or other small tasks; under extreme duress he has been known for greater feats, such as an emergency ice wall. Abel avoids this power at all costs, as he feels close to death at every use.
personality/fun facts
dedicated // faithful // observant // perfectionist // stern // blunt // dogmatic // fatalistic // uncooperative

Abel hates the heat. He hates direct conversations, and tries to avoid the everyday populace of the world.

Abel can 'see' his dead wife. She is a specter in his mind, often talking to him in a one-sided conversation and guiding him as a manifestation of his instinct and cognition.
backstory
Abel met his life's love while living under Crux Fidelis; Salome was a woman of great faith and belief in their protectors, and he soon fell for her charms and kindness. They were fellow Hallowed, both having enlisted to escape the bonds of a horrible life and to find purpose.

The early years were simple, and soon it blossomed into a marriage while living and stationed in Caersewiella. It wouldn't change until the Deadly Sins came into existence. Sent into battle, it went awry when Salome would die within his arms in a blast most atrocious.

Desperate to save her, he made a deal in that dark moment with an entity yet unknown to him. Her sillage and remaining, bleeding life was poured into him, fused into his body, his bones, his soul. Salome is as much a part of him now as she was before, but in a serious sense.

He was out for months as his body tried to adapt to this painful change, this impromptu fusion, leaving him a changed man. His hair lost its color and his skin took on a sickly pallor, but he did eventually recover and immediately it became apparent that he was not only the same efficient hallowed, but stronger.

Abel set out for Seracier, to Salome's homeland, guided by her own hand in his mind. Somewhat broken as a person, he moves on today trying to find out what exactly happened to him, and what cost it will incur him in the future.
