Depends on the Deathlord and the Abyssal. It's possible for them to have a very personal and positive "mentor and apprentice" relationship.
Just how present are the Neverborn in a Abyssal's life?
It's difficult to be present in someone's life in any meaningful capacity when you're incapable of lucid or coherent thoughts and intentions.
