An EldritchAbomination, known to pass civilizations as the goddess of night. Responsible for shaping humanity's mind during the dawn of time, she is periodically called upon by the Collective Unconscious to extinguish all life, a process known as The Fall, if humanity become self-destructive enough. The rest of the time, she lies dormant. In the first ''Persona'', Nyx lies at the end of the [[StoryBranching B-path]], masquerading as a Snow Queen in the titular quest. As per her idiom, her ultimate goal is to create an "eternal night", and uses St. Hermerlin's Snow Queen mask as a means to get an avatar, if one uses it, they are possessed by Nyx. After being driven out of Tomomi by the magic mirror, Nyx shows herself, if partially so. Nyx returns as the final boss of ''Persona 3'', fully awakened by the Death-worshiping Kirijo Group as it is researching the Shadows. Just as she did with Saiko, Nyx selects Ryoji Mochizuki as her avatar. * AdaptationalWimp: In the game: the FinalBoss of the Snow Queen Quest. In the manga: killed in one hit by Yukino. * ArcVillain: For the Snow Queen quest of the first ''Persona''.

As per her idiom, her ultimate goal is to create an "eternal night", and uses St. Hermerlin's Snow Queen "curse" as a means to escape her imprisonment. After being driven out of Tomomi by the magic mirror, Nyx shows herself and becomes the embodiment of despair. Nyx returns as the final boss of ''Persona 3'', freed by the Death-worshiping Kirijo Group as it is researching the Shadows. Just as she did with Saiko, Nyx selects Ryoji Mochizuki as her avatar. * ArcVillain: For the Snow Queen quest of ''Persona''. * AsLongAsThereIsEvil: And you know what? '''''She was right!''''' * AntiVillain: She's a neutral entry who doesn't really hold humanity in contempt. In fact, the main reason she's causing the Fall is because of humanity's desires in the form of Erebus.

* ManOfWealthAndTaste: A non-evil version. The Velvet Room changes form every game, depending on the guest he looks after. It has changed from a classical nightclub, to an elevator, to a limousine, and now a prison. Say what you will about Igor's taste in assistants, the man has awesome personal taste when it comes to making the room look classy, elegant, and mysterious. Everyone is also dressed in an impeccable uniform, except Marie. One almost wonders where he fits in among Kei Nanjou and Mitsuru Kirijo. Makes one wonder who his tailor is...or even what his tailor is.
