That rift is what happens when Great Dragons divide by zero.   :P

What happened to him, in universe, the world may never know.  Out of game, he's playing bridgekeeper, asking questions three.

He wasn't assassinated he "Sacrificed" himself to power an incredibly powerful focus. He then somehow became a free spirit named Lethe and ended up possessing a cyberzombie named Billy aka Burnout. He is as of last mention guarding a metaplaner gap that divides our world from that of the Horrors.

Are you saying that he did it to himself? Right before he was inaugurated as pres? Seems like bad timing to me

Right after he was inaugurated, legally, he was President of the UCAS.  And the timing sucks, yes.

Yeah he did, and yeah it was, but he thought it had to be done. The whole thing is explained in the Dragonheart Trilogy. Think that's the title anyway afb for now.

I asked because the SR4 had very little to explain this major event.

Yeah it kinda got swept under the rug and only really detailed in those novels. It made things interesting for a while.

Here's more info about him: http://ancientfiles.dumpshock.com/Immortals.htm#9

And here's a copy of his will if you are interested: http://ancientfiles.dumpshock.com/Dunk_Will.htm

That's because, as I said, no one in the universe knows what happened.  They don't even know how he was killed.  And all the books, except for rules, is written from the point of view of a character.  In the SR4 and SR4A's BBB instance, it's FastJack (Who laments that it should be Captain Chaos that should be doing this.).

So what are The Horrors the Dunkelzahn is trying to keep back. Also was it ever clear about why Chostwalker hates the Azzies so much? Aside from them being Azzies.
Look past the lies, and all the scary stuff that remains is the truth.

That's because when a Great Dragon decides that something needs to be a secret.... wow, is it kept secret!

Note: There are also some hints to this during the 'Survival of the Fittest' adventure module. As part of the metaplanar quest option, the Runners find themselves in the limo with Big D on inauguration night, while he's having second thoughts about going through with the explosion.

The Horrors are things that make even Great Dragons go, "Frag this for a game of soldiers, I'm outta here!".  They come when the Mana is at it's highest point, kill (Or make those they don't kill envy the dead) everything, and this time, they're coming early!

This has all the Immortal Elves (Who built the Tir countries and taught Elves their "Ancient Culture and Language" with a lot of Celtic theft from the corruption that happened during the Fifth World) and Great Dragons (Who slept through the time of low mana, but were hunted down and are far lesser in number.  One almost woke up from Tunguska, but "The Laughing Man" apologized for that.) from the Fourth World (The last time magic was around) looking at all their plans they made and go, "Aw...  DREK!!!"

Ghostwalker hates the Azzies because some of their work is decreasing the time it'll take for The Horrors to come over even further.  He smells their magic upon them, and is not a happy dragon.  There's also the fact that he woke up late and the rest of the Great Dragons went, "Uh, yeah, dude, sorry about your Brother, man."
