Ignifex also known as The Gentle Lord was the malicious half of prince Marcus, created by the Kindly Ones after he had struck a foolish bargain with them. After the sundering he had ruled Arcadia for nine hundred years not remembering his name, until Nyx caused his reunion with Shade, his personality's other aspect. 


Ignifex had resembled Shade's outer appearance, although the two of them looked slightly different. The Gentle Lord was described to be tall and lean with black hair and red eyes with cat-like slits instead of usual pupils.
