"Fifth Floor Guardian Cocytus, at your command."
- Cocytus' Introduction

Cocytus (コキュートス) is the floor guardian of the fifth floor in the Great Tomb of Nazarick. He is a hybrid between a mantis and an ant. He is the creation of Warrior Takemikazuchi.

Appearance

Having an enormous body size of 2.5m, Cocytus has the appearance of an insect walking on two feet - a fusion between a mantis and an ant.

With a tail twice as long as his height, Cocytus is covered with sharp spikes like icicles and has a strong jaw that can easily snap people's hands. Two of his hands hold a silver halberd, while the remaining two hands hold a mace emitting black light and a crooked shape sheath which seems to be for a broadsword. With a breathtaking cold air, the pale blue, hardened bone armor oozes out diamond dust like bright light. His shoulders and back look like uplifted icebergs.

Personality

Cocytus has a warrior personality and respects anyone with a fighting spirit and the heart of a warrior. As a Floor Guardian, he's in charge of Nazarick's martial defense. Cocytus is loyal to a fault. As shown when he prevented Demiurge, under Ainz's order, from interfering in Ainz's fight against Shalltear even though he too also feared the possibly of losing his master.

A warrior by heart, he likes a good battle and has a sense of honor. Unlike his isolationist and xenophobic colleagues, he is more accepting in allowing outsiders join Nazarick. Though he takes pride in his position as Nazarick's defender, he is somewhat envious of his fellow Guardians. He likens himself as the 'sword' of Ainz Ooal Gown, that executes his master's wishes and thinks the only way he could prove his worth to Ainz is by actually defeating the invading forces that would be a threat to Nazarick. Cocytus isn't fond of asking for assistance in order to save face, but when the need arises, he will put his pride aside to accomplish his task.

Background

Cocytus was created by Warrior Takemikazuchi as the Floor Guardian of the 5th floor of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. He was programmed to possess knowledge about all the Supreme Beings' Divine Weapons.
