The Unnamed was Mevolent's master before Mevolent started The War. Not much is known about the Unnamed, except that he did not have a True Name, but was still able to perform Magic. It is unknown whether the Unnamed is still alive. In a painting at the Great Chamber, he is shown as a man burning with black fire.
In Skulduggery Pleasant: Midnight, it was revealed that he was the father of Abyssinia and therefore the previous King of the Darklands.
Magic and Abilities
He has the ability to burn in black fire. It is unknown what else he can do, and where his magic comes from, since he has no True Name, which is the source of the magic used by sorcerers. It is known that he is a direct descendant of the last Faceless One who had human form, and is implied that his, and his family’s strain of magic is unique and quite possibly Neoteric.
