Its foundations rested on the largest privately owned island in the city, which lay between arms of the River Tynnet and the River Tone. The high wall that girt it was topped with barbed spearheads and torches that threw their light on the swift water below. Its gate, however, was open, revealing the full sweep of the stairs that reached from the Tone's edge to the threshold of the Tower itself, and there too the doors gaped wide. Inside, firelight set monstrous shadows leaping over the ceiling and walls of the vaulted entrance way. Outside, obsidian sheathed walls soared up one hundred and fifty feet to the clawed toes of the four stone demons whose interlocking wings encircled the top of the edifice. Above their outthrust heads was a band of high, clear windows, brilliantly lit, then a balcony, then more windows, this time of richly hued glass, and finally the stone tracery of the dome under which Ozymardien's great collection was kept.

Edor Thulig, the Tower of Demons, is the residence of Prince Ozymardien of Metalondar within Tai-tastigon. The tower is built on the largest private island in the city; the River Tynnet branches here to join the River Tone on both sides of the Tower, which gives the name of the area, the Tynnet Branching District. The Prince keeps a demon, Thulig-Sa, within the tower to guard it.

The tower was raised 30 years before God Stalk, and is very open, almost in an arrogant challenge to the city.[1][2]

It is destroyed in the surge of energy that untemples the Tastigon gods near the end of God Stalk.[3]
