Nidhogg - Aeon of Death
Lo! Death has reared himself a throne
In a strange city lying alone
Far down within the dim West,
Where the good and the bad
and the worst and the best
Have gone to their eternal rest.
- Edgar Allan Poe, The City in the Sea

Nature: Astral Being
Type: Aeon
Mate: Echidna, Aeon of Matter
First Encountered: 5.5 "A Pair of Star-Cross'd Lovers"



Request: Give her the ability to kill Midgarðsormen.
Boon: She was invested with the Auctoritas Arcanum of Death, so that if she should ever come close enough to the Midgard-serpent to succeed she can incorporate the capacity for dying into its pattern, making it possible to kill it.
Price: After her mentor, Ahura Mazda, has finally died, she has sworn to kill him no more than 24 hours after his time of death.

Request: Help with dispelling the magic that petrified Mnemosyne.
Price: That he would make sure the Final Name of Low-Key was never used in any way, and to destroy the record of said name completely in such a way that it cannot be repaired again later.
Condition: By choosing to be informed of the price for Nidhogg's help, he would not be told the cost of selecting the aid of Echidna until after accepting her deal.

Request: To return his maximum possible lifespan to its prior duration, before so many years of life were taken from him.
Response: He had to figure out from where his replacement-years would come from, who he would get as 'donor'.

Request: Answer to the question ''why is there death?''
Response: A freely given, though heavily biased, answer. With no demand for service or payment.
