Imp N°1 is an imp in The Lost Colony. He is a warlock, an imp with magic. He is unable to warp into adulthood, unlike other demons.


N°1 first appears in the book The Lost Colony in which he plays a major role in the rescue of the ancient demon island of Hybras. After being kidnapped twice, once by the child genius Minerva Paradizo and again by Billy Kong, an insane murderer, and rescued both times by Artemis Fowl II and Holly Short, Nº1 revives the last surviving demon warlock Qwan. Together Artemis, Nº1, Holly and Qwan bring the island of Hybras back to earth but realize in their return that they have missed three years of life. Nº1's second and last appereance was in The Time Paradox; Nº1 uses his powers to send Holly Short and Artemis Fowl back in time to save the extinct silky sifaka lemur (Jayjay) from the insane megalomaniac Opal Koboi.

Physical Appearance

N°1 is described as looking like a small rhino, with a gargoyle-like head.


N°1 is a benevolent person, and he feels immense remorse upon killing something, even for survival, such as rabbits (going so far as to feel that their spirits haunt him).

He also enjoys pointing out the other meanings to phrases and words.
