Lohesh was... it decimated the village. Within hours. Maybe three people got out.
Anya Emerson[src]

Lohesh was a pure demon which was known as a "four-winged soul killer". In the late 12th century a sorcerer in the Koskov Valley, above the Urals, became the embodiment of Lohesh when he achieved Ascension, annihilating a nearby village afterwards. Anya, as Anyanka, was present there at the time, cursing a local shepherd on behalf of his friend.
