Nyx is 3/4 Illyrian despite Feyre being High Fae as he was conceived when Feyre was in Illyrian form, due to her shapeshifting powers. Feyre's pregnancy was very high risk because she did not have the same wide pelvis as Illyrian women in order to give birth to a baby with wings. Nyx was born almost three months early because one of his wings had caused a tear in Feyre's stomach, all the healers had said that Feyre and the baby would die along with Rhysand due to the deal him and Feyre had made. In a last attempt to save Feyre and the baby, Madja and the other healers created an incision in Feyre's stomach to surgically remove the child. Feyre, Rhysand and Nyx were only saved from death by Nesta, who offered to give the powers she had taken from The Cauldron back if it would save Feyre, Rhysand, and Nyx, the Cauldron accepted and Nesta lost most of her powers.
Nyx is described to have midnight black hair similar to Rhysand’s and Violet-Blue eyes that glow with his father and mother’s starlight. He also has Illyrian wings inherited from his father a half Illyrian himself and from his mother as well, as he was conceived when Feyre was full Illyrian.
