Axiose is Wolf Dæmon whose life was deeply connected to Fliktor, the previous King of Highland. He has two large wings on his back which he rarely uses for flying unless absolutely essential due to his crippling fear of heights. Axiose continues Fliktor's work as an Abhorsen by slaying and binding the dead wherever possible using his blade, Nehima. He recently thought he found a cure for his blood curse, and "borrowed" money from Chiepoo to pay for his adventure. However, finding, at last, that any cure was impossible, he wished his friends well and set off for a new horizon.
