Lord of Shadows

Sabnock, also known as Sabnock of Thule, is a demon from the Void.


In 2012, Sabnock was unintentionally summoned during Malcolm Fade's ritual to resurrect Annabel Blackthorn. Pulled through a dimensional tear by Malcolm and Arthur Blackthorn's blood and the power of the Black Volume of the Dead, Sabnock hid in Porthallow Church until Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn arrived at the church days later. He emerged from his hiding place and attacked them, apparently never having encountered a Shadowhunter before, and was killed after Julian broke open part of the church roof, weakening him with sunlight, allowing Emma to stab him with a seraph blade.[1]

Physical description

Sabnock is a scarlet-black, rippling form composed of clotted, sludgy blood, with two burning white eyes. Its hands end in flat points like the tip of a shovel, each with a single black, curved talon dripping with lucent slime protruding from it. Its mouth is a black slash filled with teeth like shards of red glass, and blood drips from its mouth when it speaks. Sabnock is hard to kill, as any holes opened in its body quickly reform, like water.


  • Sabnock is also the name of one of the demons of the Ars Goetia, who has 50 legions of demons under his command and is depicted as a soldier with armor and weapons, the head of a lion, and riding a pale horse.
