A massive, tentacled demon dwelled on the other side of a portal that opened from the Hellmouth, appearing when the Master ascended[1] and two years later the Sisterhood of Jhe opened the Hellmouth.[2]


The demon emerged during the fight between Buffy Summers and the Master over Sunnydale High School. It attacked Giles, Cordelia, Jenny, and Willow in the school library. When Buffy staked the Master, the demon retreated into the closing portal.[1] Willow had recurring nightmares of the creature ever since that day.[2]

Two years later, the demon re-emerged in the library when the Sisterhood of Jhe performed a similar ritual to bring forth the end of the world. The Scooby Gang noted that it had grown since their previous encounter. While Buffy, Faith, Angel, and Willow fought it, Giles cast a binding spell to contain the demon.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

  • The demon was created at Optic Nerve. The budget didn't allow for a computer-generated effect, so tentacle "costumes" were created. Each tentacle has a human being inside manipulating it from within.[3]
