Noctus appears in Telepath RPG Chapter 1.
Noctus is the boss of Chapter 1. He appears once the Hero has found a way inside his tent.
Noctus's total health depends on the power of the player, but he's generally easier to defeat if the player is more powerful. As long as the player has not Contacted any allies, Noctus alternates between Mind Blast and Shadow Blast attacks each turn. If the player has an ally on the field, there is a 1 in 4 chance that Noctus will use Dark Vortex, removing them from the field. It is important that the player have a good supply of Vision Pills and Focus Pills for this battle.

"I was not certain at first that you had grown tired of living, little fleshling, but it seems clear to me now that you have. Your essence will be sweet to devour..."
- Unlike other elite Shadowling soldiers, his bone mask does not feature ridges on the inner edge.
- This might be explained by that his bone mask is just an early texture of bone mask worn by shadowling guardians, just like most other graphic style differences between the first and second generation of telepath games.
