Girsh Bethsaida

A creature of immensity mounts the upper eyeline. Leather trapezii swell with the pump of overfurcate capillaries, vapor attaches to their starless nares, and long hand-feet fork into a hundred digits each. Over the raw humps of their body, even the deadest of lifegrowth (hair, nails) is quickened to act and writhes like startled maggots. Finally, irisdual light churning under their tx-glass skin is filtered to a viscus hue and radiates out of body in lituus spirals.


Girsh Bethsaida is one of the Girsh Nephilim, who lives below Bethesda Susa. They are worshipped by the gyre wights of Bethsaida.

Bethsaida's cradle can be found at around strata 30 below Bethesda Susa, by following the pits starting in the Temple of the Rock.


  • Prior to the 7th Plague update (game version, Bethsaida's worshippers were known as the Glow-wight cultists of Bethsaida. Their description said that they "chant[ed] the hymn of the hoary demon Bethsaida".
