Abridged Guide to Evil Wikia

"You idiot,” the Intercessor screamed. “You fucking idiots."
―The Intercessor[1]

The Intercessor, also known as the Wandering Bard is an Immortal entity of possibly human origin. Her original name is unknown and it is not clear if Intercessor or wandering Bard are Names. She seems to work for the Gods Above but her current goals are unknown. She is known to die and return in another body under a different name. She was first known as Almorava of Smyrna but died after the callowan rebellion failed. Her next form was known as Aoede of Nicae. At the end of the Epilogue of Book IV, she appeared in front of Amadeus in a new form, claiming she was now called Marguerite of Baillons.

She seems impervious to attacks but has to flee them at some point, most likely after the third attack on her, as she fled from Amadeus at that point. When she flees she enters Nowhere and may need to stay there for some time.

Neshamah was able to physically hurt her and dissected her body. He found her body completely normal but speculated it to be a perfect construct.

She already existed when Neshamah started his plan to become the Dead King.




This aspect allows the Bard to disappear and reappear somewhere else instantaneously. She can use this to appear when she needs to talk to someone, or to escape an attack that would kill her. According to Kairos, she flees from three things: True love, her own death, and her heart's desire.


This aspect allows the Bard to see the stories of heroes and villains, allowing her to predict their actions. She also uses this ability to halt the stories of Below, allowing villains to freely take actions that would normally lead to their inevitable defeat.


This aspect allows the Bard to manipulate angels, and possibly other divine beings. She is seen using this ability to prevent Mercy from smiting a hero in a flashback, and she later uses it to allow Judgement to bring the Hierarch back to life. It's also suggested that she could use this ability on the ealamal, expanding its area of effect to wipe out most of Calernia.
