N'astirh was a demon who helped Madelyne Pryor get her baby back from Mr. Sinister, and then fought the X-Men.[2]

During Inferno, he decided to send a demon to possess the body of Hobgoblin, thus creating Demogoblin.[3]

He was supposedly killed by a lightning bolt from Storm.[4]

However a demon called N'astirh later appeared in New X-Men alongside Magik and it is assumed that it is the same demon.[5]

During the Second Coming event, N'astirh and S'ym cut a deal with Bastion's forces and provided them with a "weaponized ritual" that sent Magik back to Limbo. When the X-Men sent a team to rescue her, S'ym and N'astirh approached Pixie to make another deal: if Pixie would kill Magik, and take her Soulsword to N'astirh, he would return the missing piece of Pixie's soul and free her from Limbo's darkness forever.[6]




N'astirh is a sorcerer, self-taught in the arts of black magic. His sorcery is said to nearly be as powerful as Belasco and have the potential to rival Illyana Rasputin (Magik) in Limbo.


Computer created by Wiz Kid that allowed him to "spell check" his spells, Belasco's Ancient Book of Spells, and power-sensing goggles.

  • A demon of similar appearance named "N'astirh" has shown up with the soulless Magik. This new N'astirh seems to have limited intelligence, and it's unclear whether or not it's the same demon.[citation needed]
