— Ghostly Justiciar Hablion

Ghostly Justiciar Hablion is a White Mantle enemy found in the Colosseum of the Faithful after exorcising the angered spirits of Zealot's Overlook.

Biography[edit]

Justiciar Hablion was one of Saul D'Alessio's closest friends, and both a founding member and a high-ranking officer of the White Mantle. In 1072 AE, Hablion recruited some Ascalonian refugees into the White Mantle and sent them into performing the Test of the Chosen to locate Chosen under the guise of sending them to the Temple of the Unseen for recruitment and training.

However, the Chosen were instead sent deep into the Maguuma Jungle and captured by the Shining Blade, and the Ascalonian recruits were sent to track them down. During this, they were told the truth: the White Mantle sacrificed the Chosen atop of the Maguuma Bloodstone to fuel the soul batteries. The recruits discovered Hablion being the one who sacrificed those chosen.

Hablion was in turn slain atop of the Bloodstone by the recruits, inadvertently trapping his own soul within. It is unclear if Hablion's soul was transferred to a soul battery and it returned to the Maguuma Bloodstone after the Door of Komalie's closing, but like the Chosen's souls his own remained within the Bloodstone for the past 250 years.

The death of the Elder Dragon Mordremoth in 1328 AE released a strong pulse of magic that released trapped souls from the Maguuma Bloodstone, and the subsequent explosion of the Bloodstone in 17 Zephyr, 1329 AE released all remaining souls, including that of Hablion's, which now haunts the Colosseum of the Faithful, a floating isle above the Bloodstone Fen, with souls of confused Chosen that he commands.

  • Spirit Fury - Hablion sends a wave of ghostly energy out in a line indicated by circular orange AoE markers that damages and causes knockback.
  • Justiciar's Will - If the defiance bar isn't broken in time, Hablion uses this attack to pull several players into melee range. Deals light damage.
    • Redirect Arrow.png Cyclone Axe - After using Justiciar's Will, Hablion uses an attack similar to Whirling Axe. Reflects Projectiles.
