Villain Overview
Yes, yes! I can do it! I'll fix my life's clock!
~ Noximilien just before he becomes Nox
Farewell, Yugo the Eliatrope.
~ Nox's last words.

Nox is the main antagonist from Season 1 of the French cartoon series Wakfu, which is based on the game of the same name.

He desires to take all of the Wakfu from the world, or at least enough of it, to power the Eliacube, a small cube of incredible power that appears to speak to him, and go back in time to save his family from death. Because he is trying to go back in time, he is ruthless in the pursuit of his goal and takes many lives in his quest to gather Wakfu (life force/energy), as he believes that when he goes back in time, all that he has done will be undone.

He is voiced by Benjamin Pascal in french dub. In the english version is dubbed for Arthur Bostrom on first season, later Kaiji Tang it is who replaces it from the season three.

Personality

Before the Eliacube affected him, Noximilien was a loving father and husband, and gifted and hard working inventor, although he always managed to spend quality time with his family. Once changed by the Eliacube, Nox is diabolical, manipulative, obsessive, insane, cunning, and ruthless in pursuit of his goal. He is willing to drain the Tree of Life of its Wakfu even though this will lead to the death of the entire Sadida race (a race closely linked to nature), and has likely committed similar acts in the past.

However, he is not cruel or without conscience- he is shown to regret the harm he causes, but continues anyway, as in his insanity truely believes that with enough Wakfu he can go back in time and actions will be undone. He is also very clever and strategically minded, and is often amiable when interacting with other characters (even if he is fighting them, which creates an interesting contrast), though has little patience if he feels his goal is seriously threatened.

Despite all of the evil that he has done, when Grougaloragran looks at Nox's soul, he sees that he is still good (if only just) and tells him to stop his quest, but Nox refuses, determined to undo the damage he has caused and reverse time so that his family will live. Nox also returns the Wakfu he stole from Alibert earlier in the season. He is not entirely sure why he returned it, but it seems to be a mixture of conscience and his belief that Alibert might understand him, as Nox noticed how Alibert was willing to risk his life for Yugo- something Nox can relate to.

Appearance

In his human form he used to have brown skin, straight blond hair with a long lock, slim body, round chin, small eyes of black irises and a narrow long nose. His clothing consists of a white t-shirt, black pants, white hat with ear flaps, a white band on his wrist and two others on his feet instead of shoes.

Nox marionette

Nox as a marionette with his sons.

When taking the capacities of those of a xelor, he uses as such bandages around the entire body, an armor that covers his chest with knees and shiny circles on them. At the beginning of the series he used to wear a straw hat with a circular screen that covers his face and pierced for one eye, a sleeveless dark gray garment with shoulder pads and a black arrow on the buttons of the neck, dark green pants, black leggings tied to sandals.

In the following chapters, after being destroyed her first outfit, the armor (a helmet with a gear drawn on the eye and an upward line on the other) and bandages they are more remarkable in view also occupying ribbons tied at the extremities, a worn tunic with a brown arrow. Sometimes he wears a blue sleeveless hood.

Powers and Abilities

Like all Xelors, Nox's main powers are time-themed. He can slow time down (to the point where it appears to be stopped), and (usually only with the power of the Eliacube), even stop it entirely. The weaker versions of this spell can be broken if the victim is particularly strong willed. The stronger versions need to be broken magically. He can teleport limited distances and also suspend himself in the air. Using the Eliacube, Nox can generate pure blasts of Wakfu as well.

Nox eliacube

Nox uses the Eliacube.

One of his greatest assets is his durability. The Eliacube seems to protect Nox, because even after he has taken blows that have destroyed his armour, Nox himself remains virtually unhurt. As the Eliacube is also likely the only thing that's holding Nox together too, he can become exhausted and too weak to use magic if he uses too much Wakfu.

Nox also has a sword and can generate a Wakfu powered shield, but always uses the least Wakfu-costly attacks as possible, in order not to use up too much of what he has collected. He will retreat rather than waste Wakfu on a fight he doesn't think will win him more Wakfu.

As he was once an inventor and watchmaker, Nox has an army of Eliacube-powered machines to aid him.

Quotes

My children called me dad. My wife call me Milien but from now on the world will come to know me as.... Nox
~ Noximilen becomes Nox
Look at me, for example... Despite my small size, i suffer from a terrible hunger that pushes me to devour the wakfu in all things... Then my crackers find a wakfu source of immeasurable power. Enough to satitate my hunger for all eternity. But enough talk! The time has come to tell me where you draw... that formidable power from, and... what you're hiding in that cradle...
~ Nox calling the attention of the mysterious subject who turns out to be a dragon.
Greetings, I am Nox! Do as i say and everything will go, hm... Maybe not too badly. You, the kid with the blue hat. We need to have a chat, the two of us. The inn's closed. Come back tomorrow! (Evangelyne: Stay behind me, princess.) You're swift, little Cra. But not as swift as me! (Ruel: It's a Xelor, a time mage!) Precisely, my time is precious. And for me, you're no more than little bugs!
~ Nox directing himself to Yugo and his team to interrogate him
The polters are devastating. The old oak really din't enjoy my noxines' visit. But... That Kid! He's emitting incredible energy. That's impossible, no human possesses so much wakfu! And this tofu! Since when do those stupid avians concentrate it in such amounts? Ruel destroying his noxine Oh, oh! I may quite possibly have picked up the dragon's trail again!
~ Nox impressed by the qualities that Yugo possesses and the energy it harbors inside.
(Grougal: Are you stupid, Xelor? You most know your pathetic time manipulation won't affect Grougaloragran.) I really wanted to see you break my spell with the bat of an eye... it's so very impressive. (Grougal: If you want to be impressed, Grougaloragran shall not dissapoint!.) Then let the show begin!
~ Grougaloragran confronting Nox before starting the fight.
Explosion of Wakfu. Ingenious, isn't it? I got the idea from using the cube. (Grougal: The Eliacube...) fight with the Noxines (Grougal: Grougaloragran was sure that you found it. Where is it?!) What do you know about it? Where does it come from? (Grougal: Return the Eliacube to Grougaloragran or it will cause you great misfortune!) "Eliacube?" What a strange name... (Grougal: That item is too dangereous from a human like you. It can cause massive destruction if used incorrectly!) I've had the Cube for 200 years now, and now all it needs is your wakfu! mocking laugh This will harder than i tought...
~ Grougaloragran arguing with Nox about the use of the Eliacube and the very serious consequences it would cause if they misuse its power.
Already here, eh? You don't give me enough time to recover... (Grougal: You've destroyed entire countries. So long as you have the Eliacube, the balance of all things will be upset!) Don't act so high and mighty, dragon! Grougal spits fire on Nox If i succeed, no one will remeber! I'm sorry for repeating myself, but i require your energy to make it work!
~ Nox crying out for Grougal's surrender
(Grougal: It's over, Xelor.) On the contrary, the show has just begun! the mummies atacking the dragon Well then, how's the hero of our catastrophe? Grougal smile Let's see how long you canb wear that silly smile! Grougal fight with the mummies I never believed this old beast was so powerful.
~ Nox testing the strength of Grougaloragran.
(Grougal: He who lives with hatred is consumed by it.) one of the mummies traped the dragon Don't assume I'm that easy to get rid of, Grougaloragran! So far I've restrained myself, but now you'll see the true power of the Eliacube! (Grougal: Poor madman...) Nox stops the time Just in time. Well, what's the matter? Are you tired of playing with me, Funny-ragran? No need to tire yourself, you can't break this spell. Thanks to the Eliacube, it's a thousand times more powerful than I could manage alone. You were right about the Cube. It's not made for humans like me!
~ Nox speaking with Grougal in the battle.
Seduced by its powers, i realized everything. Today, it will let me correct my mistakes. But i need the largest amount of wakfu possible! Once i feed the Cube your anbd the Tree of Life's wakfu, i'll be able to do what no other Xelor has before! I will go back in time, and reverse all the harm I´ve caused before! You don't have any regrets, right, dragon? (Grougal: The Tree of Life is directly linked to the Sadidas! To destroy it means to remove an entire race from tha face of the earth! Grougaloragran feels that you are not as evil as you wish to appear, Xelor. It's not too late to stop this madness. Reversing the flow of time is not possible! You will rip apart the fabric of the world itself!)
~ Nox submitting to Grougaloragran and immobilize it to absorb its wakfu

Trivia

  • In the final credits of Wakfu season 1, Nox's remains and armor are seen on what appears to be his family's grave. While some have speculated that he only left his armor behind, Ankama's timeline shows that he died that year.
  • Nox isn't really evil, because he just wanted welfare for his family and not necessarily be a famous person, he simply wanted to sell his inventions to earn some money and help, revolutionizing home appliances. All his moral and ethics overflowed when he maintained contact with the Eliacube, losing trial knowing that his wife and children died. Since its inception as a Nox, he undertook the idea of returning to the past, without any other goal to achieve, even if that cost him his life or that of the rest. In the last chapter, when his whole plan collapsed, he surrendered and had no choice but to commit suicide, dismissing himself from Yugo honorably.
