* SilentHill: Dahlia Gillespie, evil, demonic witch extraordinaire. Dahlia is probably only just becoming one of Ravel's avatars, and the first hint is her looking ancient while really being only 40.
* Dishonored: Granny Rags, the blind old witch who lives in her apartment, with magic powers and [[spoiler:control over the plague rats]].

The incarnation that discovered a means by which the Nameless One's memory could be preserved between deaths was DangerouslyGenreSavvy, and hit on the critical importance of the player in determining the outcome of tabletop and video games. He arranged it so that Planescape: Torment would be created in our world, but by the time it was released he had died a few more times, leaving us with the playable incarnation. The reason the memory endures is because the player is there to share the memory. However, the incarnation wasn't the only DangerouslyGenreSavvy character wandering around; anyone capable of outright killing the Nameless One has, through madness or transcendancy, mastered the blackest art: that of the Game Over.

* Debunked: Gith was a female, this is why the Githyanki society is a matriarchy, it's mentioned often in the Gith tribes lore. Githzerai aren't because while they respected her as the hero who freed both tribes (which were one at the time) they chose to follow Zerthimon's (Gith's right hand man in the uprising) path of neutrality over Gith's plan of "Let's be a dick to everyone now because we were slaves".

*Why is everyone saying that the planes are slowly dying because of his original crime? I understood that his original crime simply damned him to fighting in the blood wars for eternity regardless of his actions afterwards. The planes are not dying because of his original crime, they're being slowly, very slowly, drained of lives by his immortality forcing death to take other people instead of him.

** Also, mind-bendingly enough, the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordian_Knot Gordian Knot]] is an item you can find in Curst, described as being from "a distant Prime Material world." This means our world (or at least, a mythic version) is definitely somewhere in the universe of Torment.

*Chris Avellone has stated that Yemeth is not the Nameless One's original name, though he did acknowledge that Yemeth could have been a past incarnation of him.

* Alternatively, going by 4e ''TabletopGame/PointsOfLight'' story, The Nameless One is the person who originally made contact with the Obryith lords; he was a follower of Tharizdun and established a link between his god and the original demons, which lead to the shard of evil being forced into the universe, lead to Tharizdun going mad, lead to the creation of the Abyss itself, the primeval war between law and chaos, and eventually the Blood War and now the Abyssal Plague.
