Purportedly killed at the siege of Y'ghatan.


In Dust of Dreams, it is confirmed that Dessembrae is Traveller (the man who purportedly killed Anomander Rake in Toll the Hounds) in this exchange between the Elder Gods Kilmandaros and Mael:


'Who killed Anomander Rake?'

'Dessembrae, wielding a sword forged by Rake's own hand.'

She was rocked by that. Her mind raced. 'Vengeance?'

'None other.' - (DoD, MMPB, p.937)





Dessembrae, Lord of Tragedy


GotM, Glossary

'Dessembrae. The Cult of Dassem.'


DG, UK MMPB, p.452

Dessembrae knows the sorrows

in our souls.

He walks at the side of each mortal

a vessel of regret on the fires

of vengeance.

Dessembrae knows the sorrows

and would now share them with us all.
