Nox Makar Delphis is the third child and youngest son between Antonius Delphis and his beloved wife Ammyana Aynokion, and is the younger brother to Nikolas and Nicaise and is the older brother to Nadiya.


Early Life[]


Nox is a man with a sadistic nature, finding enjoyment in insulting people he believes to be beneath him. This is not limited to people of lower status, but to his own blood relatives as well. He does not even hesitate on humiliating his little sister in public until Mars nearly killed him.

His sadistic nature also extends to his actions where he does not hesitate on attacking people who dare to oppose him. Moreover, Nox is not a person that could easily forgive someone. This is noted when he still wants to seriously injure Mars even though another member, (*&*-*&*), is already restraining him for proper punishment later.

It is also noted by (*&*-*&*) that Nox prefers to fight or perform a mission on his own rather than working together within a group. Furthermore, Nox does not seem to be very fond of taking orders from just anyone, which can be seen when he shows a sign of displeasure after Marcus Corvinus gives him and his siblings an order. In contrast to his nature, Nox also knows fear towards people he believes to be superior than him, such as Nikolas Delphis, his older brother and later his "cousin" Mars Aysara.


Like his siblings, Nox has silvery blonde hair with dark grey eyes and a pointed face. He sports his hair in a Dutch braid hairstyle but leaves his fringe and the hair at the top section of his head in a loose, messy hairstyle. Additionally, he keeps his hair, on the left-hand side of his head, neat by wearing a couple of blue hairpins in a shape of a cross flory fitchy.

Nox according to his brother Nikolas, resembles their father the most being practically identical to Antonius did at that age with a better personality. He has a scar on his throat curiosity of Mars Aysara.
