- You may be looking for the other Sabbath.
When Sabbath became the Godfather in charge of the Faction's Military Wing, he and Godfather Morlock conducted an initiation rite — a hunt for Sabbath's ancestors. They went in reverse chronological order, killing each ancestor before they could produce the next. Sabbath killed his mother, then her father, and almost killed his great-grandmother Fiora Venn before discovering that she was already pregnant with his grandfather. The rules of the hunt stated that he couldn't kill the same ancestor twice, so he instead stabbed her niece, Emma James. (AUDIO: Movers, AUDIO: A Labyrinth of Histories)
Morlock described him as "a stickler for the Faction's traditions". (AUDIO: A Labyrinth of Histories) Christine Summerfield thought that he enjoyed "unnecessary military action". (AUDIO: The Eleven Day Empire)
Godfather Sabbath defended the Eleven-Day Empire when it was attacked by the Seventy-Ninth Sontaran Assault Corps. He mobilised an armada of flying machines to board the Sontaran Warship and went with the boarding party to massacre Sontarans; he also instructed Godmother Quelch to fit the Grandfather's shadow to one of his elite troops. (AUDIO: The Eleven Day Empire)
In Mujun: The Ghost Kingdom, he appears as Baron Nichiyobi, and he wagers a single gold coin that Baron Amatsumara will never be able to exploit Kodomo Kami's talent for necromancy. He was one of only three survivors of Lady Wakai's consumption of the Ghost Kingdom. (PROSE: The Book of the War)
Behind the Scenes Edit
As we've already established, Godfather Sabbath is not the same person as Sabbath (from Volumes Three and Four), so they really shouldn't be played by the same actor. Godfather Sabbath is one of Morlock's contemporaries in the Faction, but while Morlock can be flippant, eccentric and at times incomprehensible, Sabbath is blunt, hard-nosed and impatient, a man who clearly doesn't feel he has time to waste on frivolities of any kind. He's not evil, and he certainly doesn't sound like a pure villain, but he's certainly capable of aggression (he's actually the head of the Faction's military resources, so he sees everything in terms of tactics and gets irritated when things don't work the way they're supposed to). He's middle-aged, probably a little younger than Morlock.
