Nether Rift, also known as Summoning, was an enemy ability seen in Legacy of Kain: Defiance used by Cenobite summoners.


Nether Rift is one of the primary abilties of the Cenobites summoners and consists of the summoner opening a glowing red rift to the Demon Realm, through which an enemy Fire demon is drawn to attack Raziel. Once summoned the demon will continue to attack even if the original summoner has been killed.[DEF][1]


  • Like other enemy abilities, Nether Rift is not given a title in game, the ability is however named as such and directly listed as a special attack of the Cenobite summoners in Prima's Official Strategy Guide - Legacy of Kain: Defiance. The ability is also briefly touched upon in the Defiance manual which lists it as "Summoning" in the section dealing with spellcaster abilities.[1][2]
