Nyx came from the shores of the Missisippi. He was blind. He died in the sinking of Atlantis and was killed by Abbadon.
Nyx is described as "regal", being slender and dark-skinned with high cheekbones and black hair in dozens of long braids.
His talisman is a ruby ring, which was hidden in the swamps of Missisippi, guarded by water spirits called the Okwa Naholo.
