Auxiliary Bishop Ernyst Abernethy was an upper-priest of the Church of God Awaiting and a member of the Order of Schueler.

He served as Bishop Militant Bahrnabai Wyrshym's assigned intendant. Abernethy was very young for his position, having risen rapidly in his order as Grand Inquisitor Zhaspahr Clyntahn and Archbishop Wyllym Rayno expanded their pool of inquisitors. Merlin Athrawes suspected that he regretted all the violence and ugliness that went with his position, and that he didn't try to be as vicious as he compatriots. (MTAT)
