Nyx is explained as the personification of death itself in ''Persona 3''. She is also the final boss in the story, although gameplay-wise the final boss is her avatar. In ancient times Nyx bestowed Death and Night to the world, where she is destined to bring [[The Fall]]. Nyx, however, lies in hibernation and can only be called by the appraiser of The Fall, which happens to be the incarnation of the Arcana that was never meant to be: [[Death Arcana|Death]]. When the [[Kirijo Group]] was experimenting on the Shadows, Mitsuru's grandfather, along with several scientists, knew about the Fall and willingly embraced it. They eventually succeeded in amassing a large amount of [[Shadows]] within the experimental facility and rejuvenated Death. However, [[Eiichiro Takeba]] declined and destroyed the facilities, causing Death to be forcibly split into thirteen separate Shadows. Defeating the individual parts would cause them to reunite with the 'main' thirteenth Shadow, which was sealed within the [[Protagonist (Persona 3)|protagonist]]. Death, while within the protagonist's mind, assumed the amnesiac identity of [[Pharos]]. Therefore, it is not until the protagonist defeats the remaining twelve Shadows that Death is rejuvenated and reawakened.

Assuming the form of [[Ryoji Mochizuki]], Death was responsible for summoning Nyx, and became the harbinger of the Fall. After the protagonist manages to fend off the Avatar of Nyx, the Avatar shrugs the damage away, and proceeds to connect to Nyx's true physical body, the moon. As she descends to earth, [[Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad|SEES]] was rendered immobile, leaving only the protagonist immune to her effect. Through the cheering of SEES and his friends' will to live, the protagonist ascended to the Moon and battled Nyx, where he used his own soul as the Great Seal, sealing Nyx away.

In the ''Persona 3 Club Book'', in a Q&A section it is stated that Nyx is in fact a living being outside reality the size of a celestial body known as "the Planet Eater," that drifted space in a dormant state. Eventually, this being collided with the Earth, and ended up entering Earth's orbit becoming its moon, but leaving its psyche on the surface. This "wave-like psyche" stood a contradiction to the already existing life on earth, which was still at a very primitive state. In order to resist this contradiction, the lifeforms on Earth had a period of evolution and developed a collective subconsciousness in which the lifeforms locked away the psyche of Nyx by suppressing its psyche with their own thoughts. Nyx's physical body entered a healing process after colliding with the Earth from within Earth's moon. By the time ''Persona 3'' takes place, that process was just about done. The Fall is the process in which Nyx's psyche re-enters its physical body, giving Nyx its original form back, meaning a paradox for life on Earth, and thus the end of the world.
