Bondrewd "The Novel", also known as "The Lord of Dawn", is a legendary white whistle delver who has made many great discoveries about the secrets of the Abyss. A researcher fascinated by the Abyss, he has made morally questionable experiments and resorted to illegal means in order to get funds for his research, selling artifacts illicitly, developing dangerous drugs and even experimenting on living humans.
His methods go against all the ethical principles of delvers, but he's allowed to continue due to his outstanding results. Ten years ago, he did the unthinkable by establishing a large base named Idofront in the deepest area within the 5th Layer of the Abyss, as well as securing a route to the inviolable 6th Layer.
Bondrewd is a tall man sporting mostly black clothing, with a longcoat and a suit. He always covers his face with a black helmet. His main body also has what appears to be a lizard tail, which is presumed to originate from an artifact. His white whistle is sculpted into the shape of two hands clasped together in prayer.
At some point in the past, Bondrewd was responsible for some unclear criminal offense in a foreign country and a bounty was placed for his head. Regardless of this, he became a delver and did anything he could to obtain funds for his research of the Abyss, selling drugs made through human experiments on the black market, selling artifacts and relics illegally, and many other questionable acts. Some bounty hunters would show up to claim his head, but they would all dissappear and eventually anyone would not approach him out of fear.
15 years ago, he managed to steal the Special-Grade Artifact, the Zoaholic, and used it to spread his conciousness on multiple bodies, creating the "Praying Hands". Five years later, the achievement that earned him the rank of a White Whistle was made. Probably after years of work, he established a large operating base in the 5th Layer and secured a passage to the 6th Layer using an ancient altar of the past. When he became a white whistle, he used his original body as the material for the Life-Reverberating Stone necessary to make the whistle, becoming his own whistle himself. Since then, "Bondrewd" became nothing but a soul moving between bodies with the use of the Zoaholic. Despite this, his pursuit for knowledge of the Abyss remained just as strong.
