The Pyrippus symbolizes the "Dark Lord", the Lord of Darkness.
It is depicted as a giant horse in drawings, tapestry, and statues. One illustration depicts it with bat-like wings, hovering over a group of people and bearing down on them with what appear to be flames coming out of its mouth, but was actually drawing energy from all of them at once.
- ROSETTE: It was foretold that with the death of The Una Mens, the Pyrippus would rise. – (Origin)
- BO: What's with the horse?
SISTER EPONA: The horse. The great and all-powerful. With dominion over life and death. Only the mighty will denote the worthy from the fallen. But if you find it....
BO: Find what?
SISTER EPONA: Your blood will destroy him. He must be protected.
BO: Protected from who?
SISTER EPONA: Succubus. You.
BO: What about me?
SISTER EPONA: Daughter's intentions are unclear.
BO: Pyrippus, is he...?
SISTER EPONA: Your father. – (Origin)
- "I am your Queen, whether you swear it or not, fool, and my true army cometh. I was bound by blood. I will bathe in it. Humans, Fae...all will bow before me. All will break beneath the power of the Pyrippus." – Dark Bo (Dark Horse)
- "Something big is coming! The Pyrippus!" – Trick (Dark Horse)
- In Greek mythology, when Hades captured Persephone and took her to the underworld he was riding a golden chariot drawn by four black immortal horses. Although the name Pyrippus does not appear in Greek or Roman mythology, it may be a reference to one of the horses.
- A "Pyrippus" might be an alteration of the Pegasus, the mythological flying horse; or a variation of the Gryphon.
