Abyss is an ancient enigmatic entity that existed prior to the Creation of the Universe. It came into existence after the settling of the powers of Yesh and Ayin, creating the Ein Sof. There it exists in perpetual slumber, only waking up for certain events. It is revealed to be the personification of the Ein Sof itself, making it stronger than Eternity and Infinity.
Long ago, before Creation began, Abyss was born from the settling of Existence and Nonexistence. Soon after, Reality and Time came into existence. Abyss revealed that prior to the release of the Dunsanyans from Purgatory, it remained in perpetual slumber since the dawn of Creation, not even waking up for the Apocalypse.
Abyss is mostly characterized as a mass expanse of shadows that seem to be endless and expand in all directions. While in Heaven. Abyss manifested as a viscous black liquid. Abyss can also take the form of a shadow person when manifesting to Cassiel, Anael, and Adrian in The Empty as well as the form of a wolf that seems to be composed purely of shadows.
In his corporeal human form, Abyss takes on the form of a young man with dark skin, jet black hair, and golden eyes. He possesses glyphs tattooed all over his body. Abyss wears a red bandana, a red, tattered waistcloth, black arm guards, and black pants. Alternatively, Abyss has a female form that he rarely uses. When manifesting a human form in Heaven, Abyss manifested to Cassiel as a beautiful woman with white hair and crimson eyes as well as a black dress.
Abyss is wholly impersonal to the rest of Creation viewing it in a similar fashion as Life and Death, completely unimportant. He is extremely detached expressing very few emotions aside from sarcasm, anger, and annoyance. This is evidently seen when Gabriel visits him in the Empty and begs her to return to Creation. The only beings who can fully describe him in full are The Primordials, Eternity, and Infinity. Infinity describes him as a nigh-emotionless emo whose only purpose is "to take millennia-long naps.” Eternity sees him as a very close friend often engaging in amicable conversations during the Gathering. Despite this Abyss is capable of showing compassion and attachment as seen with his daughter.
Unlike Infinity or even Eternity, Abyss never leaves his domain of The Empty. He always seems to be there only ever leaving for official business and even then he only goes to A"K. The only recorded instance of Abyss ever leaving The Empty to visit the Physical and Spiritual Realms was when Abyss went to Heaven to retrieve the soul of a Nephilim long ago shortly after the end of the reign of King Solomon and Queen Sheba.
Abyss is shown to be a very staunch upholder of the Natural Order often going to great lengths to put it back together as seen when Abyss invaded Heaven to retrieve the Nephilim, Sheba after she had died.
