Demid Sunlash is a gnome archivist of the Cobalt Soul. As an NPC, Demid Sunlash is played by Matthew Mercer.



Demid Sunlash is a male gnome, with a curly mop of red hair and blue eyes, wearing Cobalt Soul attire and a pair of large wide spectacles.[1] He is tiny, even for a gnome, and slightly hunched in the shoulders.[2]




"Manifold Morals" (2x74)

The Mighty Nein encountered Demid working in the Vellum Steeple Archive in Uthodurn, working with the Woodset Auditors to see if there is some information that may have been recovered from the ruins of Molaesmyr regarding the moons of Exandria, particularly the smaller, dimmer moon, Ruidis.

"Refjorged" (2x76)

Beau and Caleb met Demid at The Broken Stool and listened to him talk about his studies of Ruidis and Catha in an effort to ingratiate themselves with him.

"Family Shatters" (2x96)

Jester used Sending to message Demid in the belief that he was still in Uthodurn, and was told that his studies had shifted and he was no longer there. When they arrived at the Vellum Steeple, Scribewarden Ressia Uvesic confirmed he had been gone for weeks.
