High General Brigitte Abbendis was one of the founders of the original Scarlet Crusade. She was the daughter of the former High General Abbendis. Brigitte later became Commander of the Scarlet Onslaught.
Brigitte Abbendis 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.
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. 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.
