Two flamethrowers containing the soul of Undine, who threw herself into the Cocytus river after a failed relationship.

Undine's extreme feelings of jealousy burst into searing flame, reducing her enemies to ash. Her breath of lament freezes all who are hit by it dead in their tracks.


Considered a creature of the sea due to its fish-like body and multiple tentacle-like arms, Fidelity departed from the ocean to impart humanity with their primeval memories.

Those who forget their past and begin to disrupt the serenity of life are often dragged by this angel to the darkest depths of the ocean.

The ocean is a sacred place, the area of Earth that is closest to Paradiso, as the intense water pressure of the depths means it has remained untouched by human hands since the beginning of time. A large celestial veil covers the sea's expanse, and until this day there has never been a human who has witnessed the seas in their entirety.

Masked Lumen

According to the Vigrid Chronicles of Avellaneda, the 500-year struggle between the Umbra and the Lumen ended with the defeat of the last remaining sage at the hands of two Umbra Witches. Yet, as if to mock these records, a masked man appeared before Bayonetta with the power of the heavens and the swiftness of light.

The Lumen had not perished.

Good to know I'm not the only one who likes having someone to back me up and give me a shove in the right direction when I need it.

Perhaps this is a perennial bad habit that, despite our progress, mankind just can't seem to shake.

The folly known as "fortune-telling" is just one of the ways we, as a species, have come up with to imitate the true Sovereign power of God.

Speaking of which, it just so happens I found an intriguing card, with a very mysterious aura about it.

It must have belonged to that little boy I just bumped into; though I can't imagine why he'd be carrying something with these bizarre tarot-like markings.

When I look at it, I feel like the card is trying to tell me where to go. Well, I won't get far with a single card: how else would they sell you the whole set?
