Zabediel was a scribe in the service of King Eliam. He lived since the dawn of time, and it was he who wrote on the scroll taken from Sil Arnoth the location of the Wyrm Lord, the prophecies of Paragor's rise, and that of the Three Witnesses. Zabediel is known to have lived in Balesparr until he was captured by Paragor, and imprisoned. Aidan and Antoinette, friends, freed him, and he revealed to them the prophecy. He was later killed while trying to escape Paragory.

The suffix of his name means 'Of God'.
