The coupling of angel and demon in Inarius's world led to the birth of the nephalem, among which was Philios. Lycander was drawn to him and the two fell in love. When the demoness Lilith massacred Sanctuary's renegade demons and angels however, Lycander fled to Heaven. While there, she maintained contact with Philios through the Sightless Eye. In time however, Lycander's fellow angels discovered she was communicating with someone outside Heaven, though did not know who it was. Lycander ended the romance and insisted that Philios hide the Eye so that Heaven would not learn of Sanctuary's existence.
