Character Description: Lord of Nightmares

The Lord of Nightmares is the supreme being of the Slayers' universe. She is the Sea of Chaos. She created the demons and the gods of the Slayers' universe. She is the source of all magic, but the most powerful spells (Giga Slave and Ragna Blade) are Chaos Magic, and draw energy directly from the Lord of Nightmares.

The Lord of Nightmares lives in another dimension, called the Sea of Chaos. Also, there are four staffs extending out from the Sea of Chaos. At the end of each staff is another universe. One staff has the universe for Slayers, another has the universe for the anime Lost Universe, and the other two are still unknown as to what universe they hold. The Lord of Nightmares watches over all four universes.

She doesn't interfere with the progress of the universes, unless the situation requires it. There is only one known instance where she directly interferes in the Slayers universe. The Lord of Nightmares decided to kill Hellmaster Phibrizo, the leader of the 5 demon lords.

Hellmaster Phibrizo has a bag of marbles, and each marble was connected to someone's life. When the marble was broken, that person dies. Hellmaster Phibrizo actually killed off the entire Slayers Next cast using these marbles, while trying to get Lina to cast the Giga Slave, and send the universe into utter chaos for eternity.

But the Lord of Nightmares used her powers, and killed Hellmaster Phibrizo very slowly and painfully.

There is only one confirmed sighting of the Lord of Nightmares, and that is in the opening of Slayers Next. Even then, all you see is her long blonde hair, and a shadowed face, with her carrying a scythe and a shovel. Oh, and then in Slayers TRY during one of the bumpers for commercial breaks, but I don't know if that really counts.

The Lord of Nightmares also goes by many other names, such as Lord/King of Dreams that Terrify, She Who Shines Like Gold upon the Sea of Chaos, the Golden Lord of Nightmares, One Who Has Dominion Over All Terrible Dreams, Golden Dark Lord, and Mother of All. It has also been suggested that the Lord of Nightmares wants to return all of the Universes to the Sea of Chaos because she is 'lonely'.
