Colyphyr was a demon lord who was killed by Nocticula. The demon lord's corpse formed one of the Midnight Isles following this demise.[1]


Colyphyr was first propelled to his status as a demon lord when a qlippoth runestone—a fragment of Abyssal essence thrust into the multiverse when the Abyss first came into being—fell back into the Abyss from the Astral Plane and became lodged into her flesh when she was still a nascent demon lord.[2]

Colyphyr was slain by Nocticula in -6150 AR, when she was distracted by the assassination of Xirie, the runelord of sloth and one of her most powerful followers, at the hands of Nocticula's follower Angothane. Her animus subsequently formed the Midnight Isle of the same name. The runestone that originally caused her ascension remained embedded in this island, forming a kind of grave marker for the deceased demon lord.[1][2]


Having been killed by Nocticula, this demon lord's quasi-soul is trapped within the Midnight Isles instead of the Rift of Repose.[1]
