The Ashbringer[]

Comics title This section concerns content related to the Warcraft manga or comics.

Brigitte Abbendis[3] is perhaps the most fervent of all the leaders of the Crusade. She hates the undead with a fanatical loathing and thinks nothing of sacrificing her troops in an effort to eradicate the walking dead. Brigitte is the daughter of the previous High General Abbendis, an older man who sought to destroy all undead. He passed that mission onto his daughter before he died at the hands of the undead.[4]

Brigitte was one of the members of the Silver Hand present when then-Commander Alexandros Mograine revealed his plan to forge the weapon that would become known as Ashbringer, and participated in the act of cleansing the sword's crystal. She seemed to accompany Tirion Fordring and Isillien at that meeting in Old Hillsbrad. She, her father High General Abbendis, Grand Inquisitor Isillien, Saidan Dathrohan, Taelan Fordring, and Renault Mograine formed the Crusade.[5][3] She then accompanied Alexandros and Maxwell Tyrosus to the Scarlet Monastery and claimed it for the Crusade. She then participated in the battle for Hearthglen, in which her father sacrificed himself to protect her. She was promoted to High General after his death.[4]

New Avalon[]

Abbendis appears at several locations in New Avalon: either just in front of the Scarlet Hold while on the quest N Death Knight [8-30] Death Comes From On High or at King's Harbor while on the quest N Death Knight [8-30] A Meeting With Fate.

New Hearthglen[]

With the introduction of the Scarlet Onslaught, she has been stationed as the leader of the organization in the cathedral of New Hearthglen (level 72).

Inv misc book 05 [The Diary of High General Abbendis] details her campaign in Lordaeron up until the events unfolding in Northrend.

Both the Alliance and the Horde want Abbendis' head. When the deed was done, Barean Westwind remarks that she served her purpose among the Scarlet Onslaught.
