ABADDON, n. 1. A certain person who is much in society, but whom one does not meet. A bad one.
2. The Adversary of souls, considered under one of his many charming aspects.

2010 Update: The king of stinging locusts, according to St. John the Divine; or the chief of the Immigration and Naturalization Service to come, according to myth.

Abaddon: one of the characters in the Harry Potter series.

Hmm, I was thinking that perhaps Abaddon should inhabit Discworld. Perhaps take up with DEATH for company between souls.

A citation, thank you, Nessa.

Thank you, Thom. Janet Napolitano, really?

Quilly, but Abaddon's an angel.

Really, TLP? I didn't know that. Which one?

Actonbell, it's a little funny to imagine Rincewind serving DEATH and Abaddon tea.

Karen, I had a feeling you'd go to the source.

That sounds like a bad one, Tilden, you bet.

Jim, that whole whupping the beast thing is impressive.

Susan, don't let them get you down. I'm having a little trouble keeping up with your issues at the moment, but I expect all will be well.

Bear, I can't get that page to open, but I bet it's funny.
