The Immortal Ones, the Void (虚無(「イモータル」)) are invisible creatures who wander around the Hollow Night. They cannot be killed by normal means.



Voids are dark shadows that are incapable of thinking and only move on their instincts to consume Existence. One can become a Void by overusing EXS abilities or gathering huge amounts of EXS within their body. The transformation into a Void is incredibly painful, as seen with Waldstein and Roger.

Voids can take many different forms, their most common form is that of a small blob of EXS, the stronger ones take the form of snake-like beings and the strongest forms are tall, human-like creatures shrouded in darkness. When a person first transforms into a Void, they remain mostly humanoid save for their eyes turning completely red and seemingly bleeding and their body slowly being enveloped in a black mass as they degenerate further and further.

The starting form of a Void.

Normal people aren't able to perceive or interfere with them. Only the most powerful Voids can materialize themselves. Voids also become visible when they get close to high concentrations of EXS, such as the Abyss.

When a person is bitten by a Void, they become able to perceive Voids for the first time. This is also what triggers a person's awakening as an In-Birth. But if the person isn't able to keep their sanity when they witness a Void for the first time, they'll turn into a Void.

Voids cannot interfere with the real world. They only attack those within the realm of Hollow Night. Once the Night ends, the Voids remain in the alternative realm and wait for the next Night. Only the strongest Voids, such as Merkava, are able to access the real world, but only if there is a high enough concentration of EXS.
