Anomander Rake is the premiere mage of his race, and master of two Warrens - Kurald Galain (the Elder Warren of Darkness) and Starvald Demelain (the Elder Draconic Warren).
Rake can shapeshift into the form of an enormous black dragon, whose mouth is the gate to Kurald Galain. In this form, his eyes and mane are silver.
Rake is a formidable armed combatant, even using conventional means. Rake successfully fought his way through the city of the master swordspeople, the Seguleh, attaining the rank of Seventh - the seventh greatest swordsman in the entire people. Rake was forced to withdraw due to exhaustion before meeting the First. Using Dragnipur, Rake slew two Hounds of Shadow. Within the sword Dragnipur are many ascendants, demons and dragons including the elder god Draconus, showing the prowess of Rake with the weapon. The warrior Karsa Orlong is humbled when seeing Rake and Dessembrae draw swords and he is only defeated by allowing himself to be killed.

Famous quotes containing the word abilities:
“We may not pay Satan reverence, for that would be indiscreet, but we can at least respect his talents. A person who has for untold centuries maintained the imposing position of spiritual head of four-fifths of the human race, and political head of the whole of it, must be granted the possession of executive abilities of the loftiest order.”
—Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (18351910)
“A child is born with the potential ability to learn Chinese or Swahili, play a kazoo, climb a tree, make a strudel or a birdhouse, take pleasure in finding the coordinates of a star. Genetic inheritance determines a childs abilities and weaknesses. But those who raise a child call forth from that matrix the traits and talents they consider important.”
—Emilie Buchwald (20th century)
“Our wishes are presentiments of the abilities that lie in us, harbingers of what we will be able to accomplish.”
—Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (17491832)
