|“||Hideous beyond belief, yet regal. Like a long dead king of old left to rot in some barrow, who had emerged to make himself master of this land.||”|
–Chapter 29, House of Sky and Breath
The Under-King is described as being ten feet tall, adorning rich, black velvet robes that drape to the ground, and shadows following him wherever he goes. His face is noted to be similar to a desiccated corpse, half-rotted and crowned with gold and jewels. He also has a lipless mouth with brown teeth, and milky lidless eyes.
