[[:Category:{{{FanArt}}}|Fan art of Orthax]]

Orthax is a shadow demon who makes vengeance pacts. As an NPC, it is played by Matthew Mercer.

Description Edit

Appearance Edit

When Orthax manifested before Vox Machina, its black smoke coalesced into a humanoid form that continued to grow until it reached the roof of the ten-foot-tall tunnel they were in.[2] Its bird-like beak is the inspiration behind Percival's mask.

Personality Edit

Biography Edit

Background Edit

Orthax appeared to Percy, in what he thought was a dream, and offered him vengeance against those who destroyed his family.[3]

"Whispers" (3x06) Edit

While on the hunt for the Briarwoods, Percy began to act increasingly more erratic and violent due to Orthax's influence. Dark smoke began to emerge from Percy's body and envelop him during these moments.[4]

"Denouement" (3x12) Edit

When Percy tried to sever his ties to Orthax, it appeared and fought Vox Machina. As a precaution, Scanlan threw Percy's pepperbox pistol into acid, in hopes that that would sever its tie to him.

"Cloak and Dagger" (5x12) Edit

Orthax reappeared when Vox Machina caught up to Anna Ripley, as she had made a similar pact with it, and assisted her in the fight against Vox Machina on the Isle of Glintshore, which led to Percy's death at the hands of Ripley. Vox Machina was able to fell the demon, however.[5]

"Passed Through Fire" (5x13) Edit

Even after being defeated, Orthax remained in the Material Plane through its attachment to Ripley's pepperbox, Animus. It used this attachment to grab hold of Percy's soul, preventing his resurrection until Keyleth managed to sever the thread connecting it to Animus through the use of Greater Restoration.[6]
