Nocticula is the demon lord of the Night. Her realm, Darklight, is catalogued as the 72nd layer of the Abyss. In Darklight, the shadows of good beings glow with a brilliant light, while the shadows of evil beings are patches of uttermost darkness.


Nocticula is described in the apocryphal text Armies of the Abyss as often appearing as a voluptuous wild woman with dried mud between her toes and a feral look in her deep brown eyes. She prefers to travel naked or with minimal clothing, and paints simple circles and lines on her pale skin. Her form occasionally changes without warning, and a dim trail of light like that of the moon follows every movement she makes.


Nocticula's brother, Socothbenoth, is also her lover.
