Real Name: Sean Dolan
Search for 'Bloodwraith (Marvel)' on Amazon
Sean Dolan was an amateur swordsman with no special abilities. When Sean drew the ebony blade, he found himself overwhelmed and controlled by all the souls of those the sword had slain, and became the Bloodwraith. The Bloodwraith was dark black in color and appeared in costume. The sword constantly craved new blood to add, and those it slew found their souls locked in an eternal battle of good vs. evil in a dimension inside the sword. Bloodwraith rides his winged horse, Valinor, and is an expert swordsman. He can control the ebony blade rather like a telekinetic. When separated from the blade, he can sense its presence and instantaneously teleport to its location. The ebony blade could slice through anything and, previously, would curse its wielder with petrification if its wielder used the blade to draw blood. When he wielded Proctor's sword, the Bloodwraith and Valinor appeared much more skeletal and could channel powerful blasts through the sword. When powered by the Slorenian souls, Bloodwraith became composed of an energy unknown to man and grew to giant size.
Former Squire to the Black Knight (Dane Whitman). Sean was possed by the Ebony Blade and given magical armor. Absorbed massive amounts of energy and power from the restless souls of Slorenia, bound to the souls by the Scarlet Witch and trapped in Slorenia.
First appeared as Sean Dolan in Black Knight #2, and became Bloodwraith in Avengers Annual #22.
