Even when weakened Nocturn is a very tall ghost, clearly over 7 ft, although he can grow and shrink at will , his body looks like the night sky, bright black with shining dots in it like stars, his head is an oval shape with a point at the bottom, he has two curved purple goat like horns on the side of his head, his eyes are red and he has a slightly curved hair line scar along the side of his face, going through his right eye.
His fangs are pointed like Vlad's, he also has a small goatee; and for legs, he has tentacles, similar to an octopus.
Nocturn desires to be the most powerful ghost in the world similar to other ghosts in Danny Phantom , using dream energy to get power. Possessing a somewhat mysterious yet debonair air in many respects. Nocturn's power level depends on his access to dream energy.
With a large amount of it, he is all-powerful, but without it, his power is reduced to nothing. Click here to view the gallery. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki. It was during the second period, probably in the fourth century, that to break the monotony of this long night prayer the custom of dividing it into three parts was introduced.
We have here, we think, the origin of the Nocturns; or at least it is the earliest mention of them we possess. In the "Peregrinatio ad loca sancta", the Office of the Vigils, either for week-days or for Sundays , is an uninterrupted one, and shows no evidence of any division cf.
A little later St. Benedict speaks with greater detail of this division of the Vigils into two Nocturns for ordinary days, and three for Sundays and feast-days with six psalms and lessons for the first two Nocturns, three canticles and lessons for the third; this is exactly the structure of the Nocturns in the Benedictine Office today, and practically in the Roman Office Regula, ix, x, xi.
The very expression "Nocturn", to signify the night Office, is used by him twice xv, xvi. He also uses the term Nocturna laus in speaking of the Office of the Vigils.
The proof which E. Warren tries to draw from the "Antiphonary of Bangor" to show that in the Celtic Church, according to a custom older than the Benedictino-Roman practice, there were three separate Nocturns of Vigils, is based on a confusion of the three Offices, "Initium noctis", "Nocturna", and "Matutina", which are not the three Nocturns, but the Office of Eventide, of the Vigil, and of Lauds cf. The Tablet, 16 Dec.

On Sundays, the monks rose earlier.
The division of the Vigils into two or three Nocturns in the Roman Church dates back at least to the fifth century. We may conjecture that St. Benedict, who, in the composition of the monastic cursus, follows the arrangement of the Roman Office so closely, must have been inspired equally by the Roman customs in the composition of his Office.
Whatever doubt there may be as to priority, it is certain that the Roman system bears a strong analogy to that of the Nocturns in the Benedictine Office even at the present time , and the differences subsisting are almost entirely the result of transformations or additions, which the Roman Office has been subjected to in the course of time. On Sundays and feast-days there are three Nocturns, as in the Benedictine Office.
Each Nocturn comprises three psalms , and the first Nocturn of Sunday has three groups of four psalms each. The ferial days have only one Nocturn consisting of twelve psalms ; each Nocturn has, as usual, three lessons.
