Who is he?

AbelMandor is a nord voiced follower who uses custom handpicked male nord voice.(Don’t worry, he won’t conflict with any vanilla follower voices.)

He is an alchemist by profession,turned warrior who can use dovah thu’um and call forth the aid of nordic beings
and transforms into one when need arises.

Transformation from a thaumaturgist to a man of wonder:

Abel was once an alchemist/dungeon dweller who lived in Skyrim helping people and curing their diseases. He sometimes traveled to dungeons to collect specific herbs for his medical recipes.Suddenly, due to severe drought and lack of rainfall,cultivating and finding herbs became more difficult for him.

He then came to know of a farthest dungeon which was said to be the only source of medical herbs available during that severe drought. It was also rumored that the dungeon was a dwelling place of a powerful Dragon Priest and his Draugr hordes. Despite several warnings from the villagers, he traveled to the dungeon, on the hope of gathering herbs for his village.

Though he was successful in acquiring the herbs, he was ambushed on the exit of the dungeon by the dragon priest and his hordes. Heavily wounded and gasping for breath, Abel barely made out of the dungeon. He was spotted by some pilgrims who were passing by that way to Ivarstead heading for High Hrothgar.

He was then taken to High Hrothgar, and got treated for several days. Knowing that his soul was pure and his only intention was to help the people of Skyrim, the greybeards welcomed him into their council and taught him the way of the voice under the guidance of Paarthurnax.

Abel got a scar when fighting the dragon priest which got healed over time but it contained a powerful curse, which made him turn to a draugr or dragon priest unexpectedly. He soon realized its aftermath and decided to leave High Hrothgar. With a heavy heart, the Greybeards parted with him but created a spectral clone of him, which stayed as a guardian and assisted them and anyone who came for help.

Abel traveled for some time and through his mastery in alchemy, learned to control the curse. It even made him immortal. He also mastered archery and became a Bow Master.

Abel now stays in SleepingGiant Inn, Riverwood temporarily after a long trek all across Skyrim.
