Although Depore is a demon stone able to transform into weapons, she portrays herself as a young woman. She has the ability to float which gives her a ghostlike appearance. She wears a white dress that is split down her chest and goes down to her thighs. She has two armbands with cloth that hangs off her upper arms. She has bandages covering her feet which is unknown why since she usually spends most of her time floating. Her hair color is shown as a light blue hue, and her eyes are red. She often is displayed wearing a snarky grin or throwing a tantrum. She has red markings, similar to claw marks, across various parts of her body (most noticeably her arms and legs).
When she powers up, armor appears that make her look like a warrior goddess.
Depore first appears as a young, emotionless child when Jae-hyuk (Nex) first meets her. After choosing him as her wielder, she becomes extremely attached to the point of possessiveness towards Nex and is shown jealous whenever he pays attention to another female. She is at times a comic relief with her childish mannerisms and tendencies to throw jealous-fueled rage fits. Depore likes to antagonize her opponents and hates to assist anyone but Nex. Often grumbling about how she is wasting her time or sulking whenever Nex gives her a task with someone else. Depore is often concerned whenever Nex appears conflicted and tries to offer him words of advice. Although bitter towards anyone close to Nex, she still tries to do the right thing in helping to save them since she knows he values his friends' safety. She is highly protective of Nex and hates anyone that threatens his safety becoming very aggressive to those who do him harm.There are two sides to Depore: she can appear a rambunctious teenager, or a wise battle-driven warrior.
Depore is a powerful demon stone able to bring mass destruction. She is very ancient and known throughout demon history for her strength.
At some point in the past, she belonged to the human undead, Noche, who wished to use his abilities to free her. However, Caladbolg chose to possess him and drove the undead mad.
Depore originally belonged to Demon Serin's sister, Demon Astarote, who died from complications after wielding Depore. Depore was sealed in a chamber where she waited until her next wielder would appear. When Jae-Hyuk stumbles into her chamber, she appears to him and chooses him after he opens her seal. Others have noticed she has developed human emotions since bonding with Jae-Hyuk.
During the Magnanix she suffered injuries which left her vulnerable to a trap laid but Iffrita who had been disguised as Serin. She fell into her trap which reopened her wounds causing her to be broken and her powers greatly weakened with Mimir being the only one who can repair her, causing Nex to task Muhan with the job of finding Mimir so that Depore can be repaired.
Depore is first revealed being summoned by Regis Nex in his battle against Xix. With Depore's strength, Nex's victory was insured. She goes back to sleep until the welcoming/engagement ceremony for Yuan and Ninoorut. Depore awakens after detecting dark energy from Xix (possessed by the demon Skoll) and Just (secretly demon Ouroboros).
When Nex connects the demons with Osky, he travels to confront the demon tamer. Depore helps Nex find a secret entrance to Osky's hideout (much to his annoyance) and the two interrogate his connection with Skoll and Ouroboros. Depore is weary of Osky and finds something fishy about him (Osky was currently using a body double).
Depore isn't seen again until Xix and company are taken into the past by Osky using the Relic of Caladbolg. Depore and Nex (using his human name Jae-Hyuk) are searching for Jae-Hoon two years after events of Immortal Regis. Depore is troubled with Jae-Hyuk's lack of leads, she attempts to comfort him which he tells her not to worry about him. Shortly after destroying one of the last members of the betraying tribe who awakened Caladbolg to possess Jae-Hoon; the two return to the main city of Abyss where they meet Iffrita. Depore instantly takes a disliking to her, which Jae-Hyuk scolds her for being rude.
Serin's father, Navarus, discusses with the other tribe council members on trying to convince Depore to relent her power to stabilize the Abyss after learning the lack of demon stone support is causing the world to collapse. Jae-Hyuk appears and angrily tells him the two will not lend any support since Navarus has caused enough grief in their past thanks to Navarus's daughter, Serin.
However, thanks to Caladbolg's reappearance, Serin and Jae-Hyuk are reunited and make amends, much to Depore's irritation. Depore helps the group in trying to defeat Caladbolg.
Back to Current times
Depore appears before Xix to give him the job of traveling to Yuan's homeland by Nex. Depore proceeds to antagonize Xix on how weak he is compared to Nex.

Regis Nex and Depore have been allies for many years, she was the one who chose him as her wielder due to Nex's once gentle heart. Nex uses Depore's abilities to aid him in battle and interrogations. The Demon Stone is shown as highly protective and possessive of Regis Nex. Depore is infuriated whenever Nex shows interest in other women, but still helps him save Serin after realizing how much Nex cherishes her. A definite sign of maturity on Depore's half since she attempted to impale Serin on a past occasion sensing her wielder preferred the Demon Clan princess over herself. Depore is one of the few allies Nex has left from the magnanix, and shows concern in his personality change from a silly, light-hearted teenager to a brooding, merciless tyrant. However, she works with him through it all out of love and respect. Depore is one of the few people that knows that Nex suffers from nightmares due his actions. Nex considers her as one of his most valuable, if not most trusted confidantes and shows a few glimpses of a softer side towards her as she reflects how she has grown weaker overtime. Despite how much Nex has changed, Depore and Nex share an immensely strong bond with each other showing nothing but absolute trust for each other.
Depore is weary of Serin who she views as a rival for Nex's affection. Serin and Depore do not frequently address one another, but it is obvious from Depore's mannerisms she is jealous of Serin. During one of their initial interactions Depore quickly impales Serin after realizing Nex's affections towards the princess. However, in the flashback jump, Depore has shown subtle changes in maturity in that she does not harm Serin whenever Nex (as Jae-Hyuk) tried spending quality time with her. Depore even looks relieved when Serin gets revived after the battle with Caladbolg. The only reason Depore shows tolerance towards Serin is because of Nex. Although her jealously has not died down over the years as she tries to divert Nex's attention away from a slowly reawakening Serin.
The object of many of Depore's teasing and pranks. Despite Xix's hostile view of Regis Nex Depore does not consider him a worthy enough opponent to worry about. The stone even offers the rebel advice in how to defeat Nex then quickly reminds the teenager how its futile since Nex is infinitely more powerful.

- "Nex, it's faint but... "The Night" is approaching. You know already, Nex. That Merrkaba is like a shield. This land is special. As long as this place is protected, "The Night" cannot infiltrate Chaos. But now that the barrier has been broken, this'll be a once-in-a-lifetime chance for "The Night". A chance to bring about "The Second Magnanix"." - Depore to Nex, in Chapter 48.
