Prince of Nothing

Ankaryotis is a Ciphrang, a divine agency (demon) of the Outside and one of the more manageable Potents controlled by the Scarlet Spires.[1]


Ankaryotis takes material form as a writhing abomination with “scales like knives and limbs like iron pillars.”[2] The demon’s large head is described as “elephantine” and it has “a great maw ringed by eyes.”


The Warrior-Prophet[]

When Drusas Achamian escapes his imprisonment by the Scarlet Spires, Heramari Iyokus summons Ankaryotis to kill him. The two fight, and Achamian eventually defeats Ankaryotis, sending the demon back to the Outside.
