- For her father, see High General Abbendis.
High General Brigitte Abbendis was one of the founders of the original Scarlet Crusade.
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 was promoted to High General after the death of her father.
In the comic, her father is present at this meeting, but she is not. Tirion is also not present in the comic.
She has a little known daughter, , who she left behind in the Eastern Plaguelands when she went to Northrend to found New Hearthglen. Unfortunately, Lynnia appears to have become a victim of the Plague of Undeath and likely does not remember her mother.
