The Hunger is a servant of Abaddon and refuses to take orders from anyone but Abaddon and Varesh Ossa. At the end of the Consulate Docks mission, it attacks Kormir after Varesh exclaims "Abaddon will feast on your eyes!", implying that it is likely responsible for Kormir's blindness. Later, it appears to show some aggression towards those it refuses to take orders from, as seen in the cutscenes after Pogahn Passage and Rilohn Refuge. It was charged to hunt down the fleeing Sunspears and it finally confronts the players in Moddok Crevice.
