Touch of the End: This combo is often launched from ambush or while a foe is trying to finish some threat or speach. Suddenly the Abyssal is before him and has driven his sword deep through his body so he can watch the life flicker from his eyes. No one sees his sudden charge but for a moment there are fading black footprints of dark essence as his blade glows with soft dark tendrils. Any return attack sees those tendrils form a block for him until finally at the end of his action he pulls his blade free and out. It uses Ebon Lightning Prana, Savage Shade Style, Second Melee Excellency and Death Deflecting Technique. Cost is 4m and 1wp plus more depending on how much more chance to hit he wants. Cost is 13xp.

Cares for the people of Tima(In an abyssal way)
Dirge That Sings of Ends is a man of pale skin and white hair. His eyes are the eyes of a man who takes no joy in well...anything. Though fit and strong its an unnatural strength to it. Yet for all that he doesn't really attract much note for his personal appearance. Its there but he pulls it off wrong and so diffuses its effectiveness. His gear is more impressive indeed though. A terrible double edged grand daiklaive that flares wider at the end and formed of pained moaning souls. His armor a suit of dark soulsteel lamellar armor he hides and quiets under his heavy cloak.
The land of Tima is a very unique place. Their language is one of music not words. Their works of literature looking more like musical songs or plays then writing. Yet still they do talk and write and all those things normal people do. They also value education highly having a semi-public schooling system. Not everyone gets in but many can earn the chance for education thus opening up chances in higher levels of society. Dirge That Sings of Ends was smart and good with a blade and talented with music. Many fields were likely to open up to him. Yet with all that promise the drunken antics of a travelling Brotherhood of Terrestials caused an accident that left him with a butcher's knife in his gut dying on the streets. The Prince of Ash and Dust came to him then and gave him the choice. The chance to take some meaning to his existance. To spit in the eye of Fate and not die there a fluke of circumstance when he should have been so much more. He took it.
He has long served the Prince well. A successful string of accomplishments over the last 5 years have made him rise high as a champion of his master and a skilled and useful spy. He keeps an eye on the lands past the junge in Creation using one of the minor manses that have been built and claimed near to the Prince's shadowland so that he can regain his power even under Creation's hated light. Yet he has not truely faced much completition beyond the occasional Outcaste or ghost and so he has not had to truely test his skills in true battle.
