Although he is the second most senior of the Incubi Kings, he can't be more different that the Lustlord[2]. He projects a image of disinterest and quiet[3], but there is an aura of power around him that even the Empress respects and fears[4].

During the Gathering, it's revealed that their kingdoms are adjacent to each other, but the Anak doesn't contact her outside of the Gatherings and that rubs her the wrong way but as usual he doesn't allow this to affect him in any sense.

He seems mildly interested in the Empress' plans concerning Simon, but the real reasons of that interest are unknown so far. He seems like a capable leader that counts with at least a competent subordinate called Xestris. During the Gathering, we don't have the opportunity to interact with him. He doesn't seems to pay much attention to the things that happen around him, but he seems to be very well informed about many things that affect him or not.

The reasons behind this decision are a mystery, but it's pretty significant that his cohorts don't intervene in many of the events organized by the others.

We know from the prologue that he harvests Theoson, whatever it can be. Maybe the "Theo", greek for God, in Theoson is related to his interest in theology. It's probably a resource coming from the Tower.

As seen in the beginning stages of Chapter 4, Xestris's appreance in the alternate world means that Xerces is also interested in what the location has to offer.

Simon meets im for the first time during chapter 4, in the Tower. The Anak says that he's mainly interested in maintaining balance, mainly from a metaphysical standpoint, hence his distinterest with world affairs. He tells Simon about the Fucklord's incoming attack through the Tower, and about a hateful Entity wishing to destroy reality itself. He wishes for both to fail, but provide no reason as to why he doesn't stop them himself, despite Simon's insistance.

  1. This title could be a nod to the Anak, the forefather of the Anakites (source).
  2. He states that he is interested in theology, by which he probably meant the Tower or something similar.
  3. If that image is real or its a very well constructed facade, it's unknown at this point of the plot.
  4. It's interesting how Esthera maneveures to keep the attention of Yarra in other business: I'm sure he noticed, but the Anak is a puzzle that I wouldn't concern yourself with. You and your master have much more immediate problems..
