Deathbringer decided immediately to kill Slaughter, because killing Vengeance was too risky as he was surrounded by witnesses. While Slaughter was sleeping, Deathbringer crept up on him and prepared to kill him. However, Morrowseer woke him up and immediately warned Slaughter of the incoming assassination attempt. Deathbringer still managed to sneak up and kill Slaughter when Morrowseer wasn't looking.
Slaughter's murder most likely caused the rivalry between Deathbringer and Vengeance shown in The Dark Secret. Morrowseer once suggested Quickstrike to train Slaughter or Vengence instead of Deathbringer.
- Slaughter is one of the 11 known NightWings having one-word names, the others being Greatness, Obsidian, Fearless, Vengeance, Wisdom, Eclipse, Listener, Thoughtful, Vision, and Queen Vigilance.
- Slaughter's name is ironic, as he is killed by Deathbringer in order for him to leave the island.
