WATCHER FACTIONS -
Unlike other Watcher Factions the Abenak were not named after a group of Deities, but were instead named after the indigenous Abenaki people of Eastern Canada and North America. This was in part due to their 'hearts' resemblance to the Wabenaki Confederacy Sign, which is a symbol of unity between "The people of the First Light", consisting of the Mi'kmaq, Passamaquoddy, Penobscot, Wolastoqiyik and Western Abenaki nations.
Their 'hearts' composition heavily relies on a Vanadium compound which causes their energy to lose its glow and remain a semi transparent dark grey/black colour.
Despite the Abenak not being named after a Pantheon of Gods, their Faction command have been named after Deities revered by the Albenaki people.
One of the Abenaks' most impressive Balors is Azeban, named after a lower-level trickster Spirit or God.
The Abenaks' most honourable Arawn is Gluskab, named after a God who ironically features as a kind 'protector of humanity'.
The Aymid for the Abenaks' most strategic planet is Malsumis, named after the highly malevolent God of chaos and thorns.
The elected Abenak Scahach is Tabaldak, named after the Abenaki creator God who was thought to have tried creating man from stone [unsatisfactorily], before trying wood, out of which the Albenaki were born.
