—From Codex entry: Despair Demon
- Despair demons are common around the Fade rifts.
- Treasure – a despair demon encountered when solving the treasure hunt in Parson's Battered Notebook in the Emerald Graves.
- The cursed treasure found in a small cave at the northern coast of the island of The Lady's Rest spawns five elite-ranked level 30 despair demons if any of the treasure is looted. This makes them the highest-ranked enemies in the whole game, and since they outrank even a party at the level cap by three levels, defeating them can be a challenge no matter the circumstances.
The despair demon is dressed in tattered black hood and robes. Its skin is grey and very loose, making it appear like a shaved mouse or a rat. To add credence to this, its face has small, mouse-like eyes, a wide mouth, and large rodent-like incisors which are all covered by its hand while not in combat. It also has unusually large feet and hands, which appear deformed in various manners.
They prefer to attack from a distance with an ice spike that can be annoying to debilitating in a battle already going poorly if you are attempting to disrupt the rift. They will also frequently dash away when engaged by melee attackers which can prove quite annoying. Their levels range from 12 to 30.
