Fragment - Alvin AtwaterDear readers, tonight with us is the mysterious Abaddon, the antagonist of Fragment. While Jonas Ariel (the protagonist) is out there, trying to impress the gods, Abaddon has stopped by on our interview couch for a little chat.



Part I: Let’s Start at the Beginning…

What’s your name?

I am Abaddon.

Give me your full name…

You humans ask for sensitive information. If I see any pathetic guards come after me, I will find you. *sigh* Abaddon Terres.

Do you have a nickname? If yes, what is it and how did you come to have it?

The Grim Reaper. A courtesy name of you humans.

What species are you?

Reaper. My original being is a secret.

Where/when were you born?

Olympians called my birth realm The Unknown. I am bound by that book carried by the creator of the universe and it doesn’t allow me to speak or write the true name.

Okay, now…do you believe that you are good or bad or are those terms not definable?

I am neither good nor evil. I am me and I do what I want. I followed laws until those pathetic cowards framed me.

Part II: Tell Us More About Yourself…

How would you describe your personality?

I’ve lived for a long time. I’m calm. Some of my minions may feel that I’m a little dark, I can tell but always calm. Calculating. Sometime my patience can be tested.

Would you say you’re someone who can handle pressure? What’s a good example?

Well, for one running an entire army of demons isn’t as easy as you think. Sure, their fear of me make it easier, but they’re not just an army. My minions are loyal to the bone.

Do you get along with others?

…. Maybe. I’m the blasted Grim Reaper. A lone wolf. A leader. Of course I don’t! Well there is one but she doesn’t respect any boundaries I set. Annoying woman, she is.

Who are your main enemies, people you would like to see stopped from whatever they are doing?

The Twelve. I want to kill them all ESPECIALLY that blasted White Witch.

How about allies?

My armies of course. That’s all I need…and that annoying angel woman…

What is one thing that you would like to see happen in the immediate future?

The Twelve dead, Zeus dead, his head rolling across the realms with a shocked expression. That Jonas boy, who wields the holy sword, and is bounded to me, dead. But not easily dead. I’ve got something special prepared for him.

Part III: Hypothetically…

Suppose that you could become any creature you know of. What would you pick, and why?

I would be the first reaper-god, unstoppable. Everyone will fear the name Abaddon, more than ever, to their cores.

One of your enemies just complimented you. What is your response?

Kill them and then drag their souls to the depths of Hell.

One of your friends just insulted you. What is your response?

Kill them and then drag their souls to the depths of Hell.

If you could change anything about yourself…

I would make myself impossible to seal.

Tell me about where you grew up…

*tsk* *tsk* Human. That book will not let me speak of that place.

Part IV: Now We Get Personal

What’re your parents like?

Strict and pleasant to the eye. I always hated that.

Do you have any siblings?


What’s your occupation? Do you like it?

Even though my power was sealed and title stolen, I am still the Grim Reaper. And I had no hate about my job. Just got it done.

Are you seeing/dating anyone?

…That woman is quite persistent. Her angelic allure is nearly impossible to resist.

If not, did you ever think about getting engaged or married and to whom?


Tell us your biggest secret.

If you tell anyone, expect nightmares. My biggest secret is…that I love that woman. I may not show it, I may be dark, but I’d erase the souls of anyone who’d harm her. She’ll never know this of course. Showing love is a weakness. Hell, love is a weakness. I guess even the Grim Reaper has one.

Your worst fear? You don’t have to answer this one if you don’t want to.

My worst fear… HA! I am the fear! I am the one who haunts every nightmare. I am the dark to the light, the snatcher of your soul.

Tell us one thing you’re the most proud of and why?

How easily it is to advance into Zeus’ territory and no one can stop me. I really am quite powerful and they have every right to fear me.
