A Court of Thorns and Roses Wiki

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

History[]

A Court of Wings and Ruin[]

It made its first appearance when the King of Hybern sent two of his Ravens to capture to Nesta Archeron. Feyre Archeron made a bargain with it; in return for killing the Ravens, it stated that it wanted company "to tell (it) of life." Feyre agrees and it attacks them brutally but it was Rhysand who finally killed them. As a marker for Feyre's new bargain, a tattoo appears around Feyre's left arm; it is a band about as thick around as her finger. Later Feyre makes another bargain. Claiming that "if it fights in the war, on their side she will install a window in the library so it can look at the sun and stars." Anyone who looked directly at it was horrified as Cassian did when Rhysand as a young man challenged him to see what was in the pit.

In the final battle, along with Stryga, better known as the Weaver, and the Bone Carver, they were the first to attack Hybern's forces.

After the battle Bryaxis disappeared so Rhysand told Feyre that she should look for it to return it to the library.

A Court of Frost and Starlight[]

After the end of the war against Hybern Bryaxis did not return to its home in the library and Rhysand said that they had to look for it. When Azriel asked him if he wanted him to do it, Rhys told him to do it after Winter Solstice.

Trivia[]

  • 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').
