Nox Owen is one of the candidates in the King's Champion Tournament for the title of the Royal Assassin. He comes from Perranth, located in Terrasen


Nox is described as a handsome man with black hair and grey eyes. 


Nox Owen is friendly and respectful to Celaena during their time in the King's Champion Tournament, befriending her.


Nox made a name for himself at an early age, rising up from one of the countless city orphans to become one of the most talented thieves in Terrasen. After Adarlan’s conquest, Nox turned his talents toward tormenting Perranth’s new rulers (viceroys and generals sent in from Adarlan), and has been rumored to occasionally see to it that those stolen goods make their way into the hands of Terrasen’s rebels. He was sponsored in the king’s competition by the new Minister of Terrasen (a native himself), and was granted immunity if he lost. His motives for accepting the Minister’s offer, however, remain unknown.

Throne of Glass

In the first novel, Nox was one of the few candidates who are actually friendly towards Celaena. The two in fact became friends and had helped each other numerously throughout the course of the tournament. After the amount of unsolved murders in the castle increased, Sardothien adviced Nox to flee Rifthold before he becomes the next victim. Nox heeded her advice and fled the Rifthold, and his fate thereafter remains unknown.
