Avanius is a Knight-Questor of the Hallowed Knights. [1]

History

Age of Sigmar

Knight-Questor Avanius was tasked by the God-King himself to enter a Silver Tower of a Gaunt Summoner, and defeat its master. Therein he encountered Vargi Sornsson, a Fyreslayer Doomseeker of the Volturung Lodge, Masudro Yaleh, a Excelsior Warpriest of Sigmar, a Mistweaver Saih named Eithweil, and Hathrek a Darkoath Chieftain of the Gadalhor. Necessity drove the unlikely band of champions to become allies, despite the disparate nature of their quests.[1a][1b]

Avanius came to hope he could save Hathrek from the dark path that the warrior of Chaos had found himself, even daring to believe that saving his soul from the Gaunt Summoner was the true nature of his god-given quest.[1c][2a] However, despite the Stormcast's best efforts, the Gaunt Summoner manipulated Hathrek at a decisive moment, causing the warrior to turn on Avanius and slay him.[1c]

Sometime after being Reforged Avanius chose to track down his former companion, slaying the monstrous daemonic creature he had become. Once the deed was done Avanius did not celebrate his victory, but rather mourned the death of the warrior who had for a time been his brother-in-arms.[2a]

Quotes

All servants of Chaos are my foes. Sigmar commanded that I defeat the master of the Silver Tower, and you bar my path. You are my enemy in the war eternal.

~ Avanius to Hathrek.[1a]

‘I found poor Hathrek, in the end, that Darkoath wanderer who through necessity had fought as my brother in the silvered tower of the Summoner. Through a hundred trials we passed, and I dared to hope I had turned him from his dire fate. Yet when I tracked him down he had been wholly claimed by the Dark Gods, more daemon than man. I cleaned my blade in sorrow that day,

~ Avanius recounting his final encounter with Hathrek.[2a]
