Bryaxis is a creature of nightmares which resides in the cavernous pit in the library of the Night Court.

He made his first appearance when the King of Hybern sent his ravens to capture Nesta. Feyre made a bargain with him, in return for killing the ravens he stated that he wanted company "to tell (him) of life". Feyre agrees and he attacks them brutally. As a marker for Feyre's new bargain, a tattoo appears around Feyre's left arm. Later Feyre makes another bargain. Claiming that If he fights in the war she will install a window in the library so he can look at the sun and stars.


  • Bryaxis was the name of one of the most famous Greek sculptors of the 3rd century B.C.E. He is best known for having been one of four commissioned sculptors to carve the tomb of the deceased king, Mausolus of Caria (from whose name we get the word 'mausoleum').
