The Deathslayer, (or Death Slayer) was a card within High House War in the Deck of Dragons.[1]

In The BonehuntersEdit

After the Last Siege of Y'Ghatan, Fiddler received a new set of the Deck from an unknown source and found amongst several cards hitherto unknown to him. Amongst those which he associated with High House War, was that of Death Slayer. Fiddler explained it formed a kind of counterpoint to Icarium's card, the Life Slayer. He and those with him identified the depiction as the Crippled God and Gesler expressed incongruity that the God should be two things at once to which Fiddler answered 'why not'.[2]

Stormy: "What's the last card?"
Fiddler: "Icarium's counterpoint, of sorts. Death Slayer."
Stormy: "Who in the Abyss is that supposed to be? That's impossible."
Fiddler: "Who? Well, let's see. Squalid hut of skins and sticks, brazier coughing out smoke, a hooded thing inside the hut, broken limbed, shackles sunk into the earth. Now, who might that be?"
―Fiddler and Stormy[src]

When Fiddler subsequently performed a reading with the new Deck, Bottle received Deathslayer. After dealing the card, Fiddler said, "She plays and she takes, and so— (...) Deathslayer."[3]

In Return of the Crimson GuardEdit

The card was mentioned by Heuk together with some other cards. According to him it meaned that something was happening.[4]

"Obelisk high, Deathslayer close, Crown inverted, the Apokalyptic!"
