Micolash, Host of the Nightmare is a boss in Bloodborne fought in the Nightmare of Mensis. Micolash was most likely a former student of Byrgenwerth, until he went insane after contacting the Great Ones by using the Mensis Cage. He implies that he is aware of the Dream World.
A popular theory about the Nightmare of Mensis, and Micolash, in particular, is that all beings found in the Nightmare are people that attempted to make contact with the Great Ones. The Mensis Cage placed on one's head traps the thoughts of its bearer, and upon their death, are immersed into the dream as themselves or other freakish incarnations. This might explain Micolash's death quote "now, I'm waking up, I'll forget everything." as his consciousness exists only in the Nightmare, and that upon being freed (Killed) he will awake to find only his own corpse.

- A Call Beyond: Originally intended to be a breach into the Cosmos and let the Choir commune with the Great Ones on their "Star-World", the rite failed and led to the accidental small explosion of a star when used instead. The rite allows one to breach the Cosmos, cause the destruction of a star, and use the energy from its destruction in a weaponized Arcane (Magic) projectile form.
