Agathion was a very short lived cenobite pet, servant to the cold-hearted Cenobite Clown.



While Clown and his Cenobite pet, Agathion, were torturing a man named Thorndike, who had over the years brought many souls into the Labyrinth, though finally he was being "rewarded", though it was not the reward he was looking forward to.

Thorndike decided to attempt bartering with Clown, promising that he would deliver Hell "one more horrible soul" in exchange for his own life. Agathion spoke out and suggested that Clown should consider Thorndike's offer. In return, Clown calmly sent a field of electricity through Agathion, making him explode and thus ending his life for having shown sympathy towards a victim.


Agathion appears as a dog shaped creature, with purple skin, a hulking posture and spines in his back. Agathion was roughly knee height and had small yellow eyes.


  • Agathion is the only known cenobite pet who has displayed the ability to speak clear English.
