Abel Nightroad (アベル・ナイトロード), also known as Krusnik 02, is the main protagonist in the series. He is a member of the AX division of the Vatican's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and is referred to by his codename, "Krusnik". Originally he hated humans because of their roles in their creation and experimentation, but changed his mind after the death of Lilith Sahl.
Abel has long silvery hair, tied up by a black ribbon. He also has blue-gray eyes, and wears small, gray, round glasses with a double bridge. He wears a black priest robe with embroidered crosses and white gloves. He also has two black belts around his hips under the coat. While in Krusnik form, Abel's eyes turn red and a pair of fangs poke between his lips which turn black. He also has a pair of black wings and a red scythe created from his blood: which is stronger than steel and harder than diamond. The wings allow him to fly in the sky and have the ability to generate bio-electric fields.
In The Throne of Roses arc of the manga, he is depicted as a black-eared "The White Rabbit", as opposed to his white-eared brother. His arcana in Thores' tarot cards is The Fool, a reference to his personality and status as the main character.
Abel appears as a clumsy, silly man, completely unfit for his job. He is capable of becoming very serious, especially when confronted with treacherous situations. He also frequently fakes a smile or brushes off comments that he does not want to answer.
The more that Abel activates his Krusnik nanomachines, the more he seems to drift away from himself, evident in the Krusnik nanomachines talking through him (using first person plural). In the anime he generally appears to have more control than the manga, although he is very detached from his surroundings at 80% capacity. His Krusnik form also portrays an alarming thirst for Methuselah blood and destruction. It is also mentioned that when in Krusnik form at 80% Abel has enough power to completely destroy Rome. Despite the implications of his powers, Abel goes to great lengths to hide this ability from other people, referring to it as "a mark of [his] sins."
He has many quirks throughout the series, such as putting thirteen sugars lumps in his tea, and never has more than a few dinars in his wallet at a time.
Abel was a short-tempered person in his youth, angry with humans for using himself and other genetically-enhanced humans as tools for colonizing Mars. He served as the Lieutenant-Colonel and in charge of the management of the security division in The Red Mars Project, a project created in response to an overpopulation crisis on Earth. His rank was below Cain's and above Seth.
During this The Mars Colonization project, several colonizers who disliked Abel lured him into the Martian wilderness. Just as Abel was about to die from oxygen deprivation, Lilith rescues him, however, Lilith’s vehicle broke down on the way back. It was during this time that the two found a highly technologically advanced space ship, later known as "The Ark." Inside the Ark, they found the Kudlak Bacillus and Krusnik Bacillus (nanomachines). The Krusnik Bacillus was found to be only compatible with the genetically-enhanced humans after it was used to save Cain's life but killed a normal colonizer, and so the Kudlak Bacillus was given to the 100,000 colonizers of the Red Mars Project. Eventually, nuclear war broke out on Earth as they fought for the Kudlak Bacillus and the Ark, and the same occurred on Mars as they they had representatives from every country.
Eighty years later, the colonizers were finally able to rebuild a spaceship to travel back to Earth. Not long after however, due to the Earth's closer proximity to the sun, the colonizers started showing symptoms of vampirism. A rift started between the "returners" and the humans on Earth. The time period of this war that followed was known as "The Dark Ages."
During The Dark Ages, Abel, Cain and Seth sided with the colonizers. Using the power of the Krusnik nanomachines, Abel, Cain and Seth were responsible for the death of millions. As one of the Contra Mundi ("enemy of the world"), he had been called "a God of slaughter", "God of Carnage", and even a "God of Destruction," a name which Dietrich uses to provoke him.
Lilith Sahl, Abel's former love, sided with the humans, but was killed by Cain under the guise of a truce. Enraged, Abel and Seth forced Cain into an airlock and dropped him all the way from outer space into the Earth's atmosphere. Abel spent the next nine hundred years mourning Lilith's death, until Caterina Sforza ran into the the catacombs, fleeing from a vampire attack. Abel saves her and promises to continue Lilith's legacy.
During the main events of Trinity Blood, Abel is a very different person. He is a priest under the AX Division of the Vatican's Department of Foreign Affairs both to protect and foster peace between the two races.
Although Abel usually maintains a childish, goofy demeanour, he is unable to forgive himself for his past atrocities. He refers to himself many times as a 'sinner' and a 'monster'. He does not argue with other character's accusations of himself as such, rather he is more likely to agree with them. Because he considers himself a sinner, he has made his life's goal to protect the humans, although his goal for destroying Cain is not completely for selfless reasons.
Abel does not really have a religion, however, he believes in fate.
