History

Beyond the Dark Portal

WoW-novel-logo-16x62.png This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft novels or short stories.

During the black dragonflight's alliance with Ner'zhul's Horde, Sabellian and his brethren transported the orc chieftans Fenris Wolfbrother, Tagar Spinebreaker, and a small party of orcs to Menethil Harbor, on their way to retrieve the Jeweled Scepter of Sargeras. Once the artifacts were secured he followed Deathwing to the orcs' homeworld of Draenor.

Once on Draenor, the black dragons settled into the Blade's Edge Mountains. They were not there long before they were attacked by Gruul, his offspring, and a small group of Alliance Expedition fighters. The eggs were destroyed and Deathwing was forced to flee from battle, followed immediately by Sabellian.

The Burning Crusade

TBC This section concerns content exclusive to The Burning Crusade.

Deathwing managed to return to Azeroth, but Sabellian remained behind on Draenor — now Outland. He is a fierce enemy of Gruul the Dragonkiller and Gruul's seven sons, and hates them deeply for killing Sabellian's own people and children.

Sabellian has admitted that he counts Rexxar as one of his friends, though he has not revealed to Rexxar that he is a black dragon.

He communicates regularly with Samia Inkling through Baron Sablemane's Blackwhelp.

Sabellian wears the guise of Baron Sablemane. He is a level 72 (elite) quest giver located outside the Circle of Blood in the contested territory of Blade's Edge Mountains. He assists adventurers in killing two of Gruul's sons: Gorgrom the Dragon-Eater and Goc, reverting to his true dragon form and personally fighting the latter.

Currently he and the black dragons under him remain in Outland; Wrathion is unaware of their continued existence.[3]

Baron Sablemane yells: Baron Sablemane. It will be on your lips as you gasp your final breath.
Baron Sablemane yells: Let us begin.
Battle begins.

Baron Sablemane begins emanating immense power.

Speculation

Questionmark-medium.png
This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

Old God's influence?

Sabellian is noticeably much less hostile than other black dragons towards non-black dragonkin, as seen how he treats the player and Rexxar (while somewhat rude, he isn't openly hostile and shows no intent to actually attack). It is possible that due to his extended period away from Azeroth (and the Old Gods) that he no longer hears the maddening whispers that plague the rest of his corrupted flight.

Relatives

While the lineage pictures from Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects and The Magazine #2 list him as the son of Deathwing and Sintharia, Ultimate Visual Guide refers to him as the half-brother of Onyxia and Nefarian. While it can be speculated that Sintharia is not Sabellian's mother, but it is said that only Sintharia could survive mating with Deathwing. Moreover, comparing the other lineages it does not seem to be true as in case of Malygos's child, Balacgos, the mother is clearly listed as unknown.
