Zabeth Corvid is a ghost involved in the 2010 Hallowe'en event, and the lead singer of the Adamantite Damsel band. He sang the Black Zabeth song at the Grim Reaper's party during the Hallowe'en event.

While talking to him, if you choose the wrong thing to say you have to start all over again, making him one of the most frustrating errand to do in the event if one does not know the secret. He sees into the future, and his statements are the responses he would make to the question/answer that the player makes. For example, he'll appear to randomly say "That's rude!", responding in advance to the correct chat option of "You're an idiot." Many players do not read the actual dialogue with other characters hinting at this ability of his, leading to the frustration of trying to find a seemingly random chat option.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Zabeth's microphone
  • His examine text is a pun. Zabeth is a drunk ghost and spirits can refer to both liquor and ghosts.
  • The name of his band, Adamantite Damsel, is a pun on Iron Maiden, a British heavy metal band. Adamantite and Iron are both metals, and Damsel and Maiden are both ways of referring to a woman.
  • When asked about the line "Every rose has its thorn," the Grim Reaper will tell you "It was a long time ago in a dimension far, far away. It certainly wasn't an excellent adventure". These lines are references to several different things. One reference is to the Star Wars movie franchise ("A long time ago...") and another is to the movie Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure ("certainly wasn't an excellent adventure"). It also implies a reference to Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, the sequel, in which the Grim Reaper utters the line to St. Peter when prompted by Bill. Incidentally, it is also a reference to a song of the same name by the glam metal band Poison, which would be a correlation to the heavy metal theme implied in Zabeth Corvid's character.
  • Sometimes when asked if he is drunk he will respond "Zzzzzzzzzz eat the bat Zzzzzzzzzz." This is a reference to Ozzy Osbourne, the frontman for the band Black Sabbath, who bit the head off of a bat during a concert.
  • A corvid is a bird of the family Corvidae, which includes the ravens; so, in a sense, Zabeth could be considered the third raven in the house, along with Edgar and Allan.
  • Zabeth was the subject of the Halloween Comic Competition in October 2010.
