Nyktos is the King of the Gods.
He is represented as a father and has an affiliation with the night, moonlight, and the wolven. He often turns the day sky into dark in order to signal his sign of approval (which was seen at Poppy and Casteel's wedding). He is also related to Poppy, as she is one of two last living descendants.
- Empathy: Like his Granddaughter, Penellaphe Balfour, Nyktos is gifted with the power of empathy, allowing him to reach out and feel emotions in people. In A Shadow in the Ember, Nyktos told Seraphena this gift comes from his mother's side.
- Shifting: Nyktos is able to shift into the form of a white wolf.
