Nox is the main antagonist of Season 1 of the French anime, Wakfu, based on the game of the same name. He desires to steal Wakfu from any and all sources to power the Eliacube, a mystical cube of incredible power that appears to speak to him, so he can go back in time to save his family from death. Because he is trying to go back in time, he is ruthless in the pursuit of his goal and will sacrifice as many lives as he needs to gather Wakfu (life force/energy), as he believes that when he goes back in time, all of his crimes will disappear, as if they never happened.
Abilities and Equipment
Like all Xelors, Nox's main powers are time themed. He can cast magic that slow time down, and even stop it entirely. His own time spells can be broken if the victim is particularly strong willed. He can teleport limited distances and also suspend himself in the air.
One of his greatest assets is his durability. He seemed to be affected by the Eliacube, because even after he has taken blows that have destroyed his armor, Nox himself remains virtually unhurt. Nox also wields a sword and can generate a Wakfu powered shield, but always uses the least Wakfu-costly attacks as possible, in order not to use up too much of what he has collected. He will retreat rather than waste Wakfu on a fight he doesn't think he can win.
Nox has had the Eliacube for 200 years, which seemed to be keeping him alive all that time. It is housed in the center of his clock fortress. He uses the cube to amplify his senses, physical, and magical abilities to powerful levels, allowing him to manipulate time in ways even god Xelor couldn't imagine, like casting a time spell that is virtually unbreakable to use on the most powerful opponents, and project blasts of pure Wakfu while using it. Nox also uses the cube to find larger sources of Wakfu anywhere in the world.
As Nox was once an inventor and watch maker, Nox has built a vast array of Eliacube powered machines to aid him throughout his extended life.Giant Clock Fortress: This is Nox's base, mode of transportation, and container of the Eliacube that he can use to sense bigger sources of Wakfu. It is a massive, moving structure shaped like a gigantic clock that is stories tall and moves with insect-like legs and arms. Each of the clock's numerals are actually windows for his swarm of Noxins to fly in and out, while also deploying other kinds of weaponry and minions at his command. The clock also has a pair of arms with large needles to drain Wakfu from bigger sources such as the Soft Oak, Grougaloragran, or the Tree of Life. Inside the clock base is where Nox's minions work and his equipment is stored, including a surveillance system connected to his Noxins, composed of overlaying lenses that project the images like television screens to Nox, allowing him to monitor people or places of interest. It is also very durable, as it withstood a huge explosion from Grougaloragran, but still barely functional. After the Eliacube was drained out of energy, it fell apart entirely.
Noxins: Insect-like machines that are one of his most important tools. Nox commands swarms of these creatures which drain the Wakfu out of living things, and also act as scouts by providing surveillance through camera-like eyes and act as signal beacons to find sources of Wakfu. A swarm of these machines can reduce a forest to a barren husk. Nox can also make use of their Wakfu to recover during a battle, power his puppet minions, and act as bombs by detonating the stored energy inside. Noxins can also form portals to transport people and minion armies to places instantly.
Portal Generators: To bring his clock fortress to places that are too distant to walk, Nox sends Grambos ahead using smaller portals made by his Noxins for the purpose of building larger portal generators. They are made of several towers constructed in a circle that create portals large enough to transport his giant clock fortress to the desired location in a matter of seconds. These towers seem to work merely by their shape and components, as one could even be built with trees using Sadida plant magic.
Razetime: A large, heavy robot powered by Stasis energy. This clockwork machine is immensely strong and durable, and can project destructive waves of energy. Nox has sent it to decimate a path in the forest of the Sadida Kingdom to the Tree of Life for his clock base to reach unhindered. The Razetime is strong enough to fight against Percedal in demon form. Its design and color scheme resembles a Foggernaut.
Grambos: Nox controls an entire army of these small, hooded creatures who obey his commands. It is unknown how he has recruited them into his service, but he is shown to lead them with an iron fist, while they display absolute deference. Nox uses them for operating equipment, building portal generators, and fighting opponents and armies. In battle, Grambos are equipped with standard weapons (swords, shields, axes, crossbows, spears, etc.), and ride mechanical wheels and walkers, most likely mass produced by Nox himself.Marama, Frisco, and Tartufo: Three of Nox's puppet minions, which he refers to as his "favorites." They are powerful minions, and were first seen during his fight with Grougaloragran. Although their exact nature is unknown, they appear to be a mummified Cra, Feca, and Sacrier, and possess most of those classes' respective powers. They are destroyed by Amalia using the Tree of Life's power.
Deserboss: A corrupted Sadida that is an important minion at Nox's disposal. In addition to the plant-related magic that all Sadidas have, Deserboss can hide within trees and has the ability to corrupt and control others by taking a piece of an individual's hair and putting it in his doll. Nox had him brainwash other Sadidas to help build a portal behind enemy lines for his clock fortress to enter the Sadida Kingdom undetected, while the Grambos keep their army occupied on the border.
Igol: His pet Bow Wow. He was clearly affected by the Eliacube, gifted with amazing speed. Nox put a mechanical collar on him to make him feral and obedient. He sent him after Yugo and Adamai in the desert to capture the latter, but Lottie has tamed him and now stays with her.
- In Roman mythology, Nox is the primordial goddess of the night and darkness, her greek counterpart being Nyx. Nox's full name, Noximilien, seems to be a mixture of Nox and Maximillian/Maximilien.
