A bust originally intended to depict Korphyygis.

Korphyygis was one of the Bryyo Gods mentioned in notes created by Matt Manchester for Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Ultimately, the gods did not appear in the retail version of Corruption, but the story behind them was the basis for the numerous busts in the Imperial Hall room. In Manchester's notes, Korphyygis is named as the Instiller of Venom, and in notes it is written that Korphyygis bites each newborn Bryyonian, injecting them with venom that will protect them from their enemies. The bust created to represent Korphyygis was later repurposed as a sculpture of the empress Owanl I.


"Instiller of Venom - Korphyygis: At the beginning of each life, and before birth itself it is Korphyygis who bites each youngling, pouring into their body the physical essence that is as a poison to their enemies. This blessing is carried within each mortal for life."
