Il'surrish the Wanderer is the itinerant, incorporeal, and gender-fluid protean lord of formlessness, loss of control, and potential.[1]


Il'surrish's realm is the Labyrinth of Light and Loss, which moves across the Cerulean Void. It is surrounded by the corpses of petrified qlippoth and broken remains of the primordial inevitable Argreth the Burning Monolith.[1][2]


Il'surrish rarely takes physical form and often drifts through the Maelstrom in the form of a cloud of partially coalescent light. When the Wanderer does take a physical form, it appears as a lesser protean made of cerulean light, or more often, it possesses a demon, devil, or archon, which, consumed by the experience, burns out like a metaphysical candle. Survivors only recall a horrific and beautiful experience, like that of a keketar when first communing with the Speakers of the Depths. Il'surrish bears a resemblance to the Abyssal entity known as the Risen, but lacks the Risen's malevolent, parasitic nature.[1][2]


Il'surrish's clergy, known as the Asomatous Clutch, consists mostly of insubstantial proteans, many of whom are incorporeal, including whole choruses of incorporeal keketars.[1][3]
