Duke Picus was the commander of the Seventh Legion in the army of Zaros, and one of the twelve Chthonian dukes given to Zaros by Hostilius.[1] He is mentioned by Duke Nemesis in his account of the battle with Loarnab, where he is described as superstitious.[2]


  • His name means 'woodpecker' in Latin, the real-world language from which the infernal language is derived.
