Ichor Runs Red
Absalon is a powerful Scion, but not an overly combative one by the looks of things.
Absalon is the child of Baron Samedi and he must have done something wrong, because he was adopted by Charon afterward. Seeming to not carry any allegiances to anyone but himself, he most recently seemed to screw over his adopted father, steal his staff, and ally himself with a motley gang of giants. Although not invincible, as the giants were able to incapacitate him, he was imprisoned in the ship and released with the taking of the key.
