Ulyaoth
(voiced by Richard Doyle) is one of the three Ancients whose artifacts dwell in the Forbidden City during Pious' chapter. Ulyaoth's powers focus on magick and the dimensional planes, and even his artifact, the Veil of Ulyaoth, fades from dimension to dimension, "never really existing but never really not."

'The Veil of Ulyaoth'
His servants are tinged blue and they specialize in magickal damage. Ulyaoth's form is reminiscent of a jellyfish, and his minions also have some relation to water and his form: his zombies are drowned, his Horrors and Bonethieves have gel-like segments and whole bodies respectively, his Guardians resemble krill, and so on. With the exception of his zombies, all of Ulyaoth's servants may be living, fully intact alien creatures, making his forces unique among the servants of the Ancients.

Ulyaoth has two circles of planet-like orbs surrounding him, with the smaller circle (both in diameter and orb size) floating above the larger one. These constantly circle Ulyaoth and may be a nod to how movement generates/restores magick for player characters. They also could be seen as crowns of sorts.

Ulyaoth readily admits that his knowledge is inferior to Mantorok. However, casting a Mantorok [Recover] spell regenerates only sanity and health, not magick that Ulyaoth has dominion over. While this can be considered a game balancing issue, it could also hint that Ulyaoth has at least a modicum of resistance against Mantorok, unlike his peers. Parts of Ulyaoth's Black Guardian also turn purple, the color of Mantorok, when it is recovering power in its fight against Peter Jacob, and enchanting Michael Edwards' flashlight with Ulyaoth's alignment creates a somewhat purple light as well. This might suggest that, among the three Forbidden City Ancients, Ulyaoth may be the closest to Mantorok's level.

Ulyaoth is depicted as a sorcerer in Michael's chapter in the room with bas-reliefs of human representations of the Ancients.

With the magick of the planes, Ulyaoth prevails over the sheer strength of Chattur'gha. Yet he ends up at the mercy of the maniacal Xel'lotath.
