Ethriam makes his home in Nirvana as supreme ruler of the Polyhedroids. He and Primus are in constant heat over who is the true master of the infinite discs of the plane. Primus is believed to have divided the discs into equal sectors, but Ethriam purports that any infinite space has a remaining infinity once it is thus divided. Hence, there are two gods in Nirvana who believe themselves "Masters of the Infinite," with two infinite "halves" of the plane irrevocably divided and Ethriam always at work at constructing his own form of energy to spin the discs of his half.

Ethriam appears as a gleaming, platinum dodecahedron floating above the ground, with each facial plane of his person showing a different emotion. As he speaks or acts, the representative plane of the emotion being acted on rotates to face his subject.

When Ethriam wished to do harm, he will direct a near-infinite line of energy from his Anger face to deliver 80 points of damage, or 2/5 of the total hit points the god retains at the time of attack. For example, if Ethriam is reduced to 200 hit points, his attack will be thus weakened to 80 points. This attack never misses, but saves vs. Death Magic are allowed at -5 for half damage.

Ethriam can use any spell to attack or defend, and can only be affacted by spells of a physically damaging sort. Weapons will do no harm to him unless a blunt one of extraordinary magical power is used (+5 or an ARTIFACT).
