|Messiah True Form|
Personality & CharacterEdit
Messiah is the originator of all Horrors from the True Makai Realm (真魔界Shin Makai) and existed since the beginning of the conflict between Makai Order and Horrors. Messiah is the most unusual Horror, even among legendary ones because she's the only Horror that appears almost perfectly human in form, resembling a giant white-skinned half-naked woman with long-clawed fingers and unique jewelry and tattoos around her head and shoulders. Her back contains a Taoist halo.
Due to limited exposure, more of Messiah's character and origin weren't completely defined. What is known about her is that she's highly intelligent and a patient planner. An immortal being, Messiah can never die so long as there's darkness in human hearts. However, her spirit requires immense levels of darkness to resurrect herself, approximately 1,000 horrors to give herself a physical form. She also indirectly responsible for creation of dark arts within a Madō Book from which her shadow manifest to guide the Dark Knight Barago in acquiring power of darkness.
Skills & AbilitiesEdit
Being a legendary Horror, Messiah is an immensely powerful adversary that Makai Order and Golden Knight Garo ever faced. Her powers include ultra-human strength, high combat capabilities (while possessing Kaoru and through physical avatar), magical shielding, energy attacks, able to summon Horrors by merely touching the ground she walks upon, and flight. The full range of her powers were never revealed as Golden Knight Garo Kouga defeated her before she reaches her full strength, suggesting she has a larger range of combat capabilities.
HistoryEditBarago's desperation for power, Messiah reveals herself in a Madō Book that contains forbidden techniques. Though only a shade, Messiah offers to give Barago knowledge and power of the forbidden Makai methods in return to bring about the legend of Kiba. Barago wholeheartedly agrees to give up his soul for power and Messiah proceeds to start him on his path of destroying lives to set up the conditions to summon her in her full glory through Kaoru, who is a suitable vessel due to the conditions of her age and birth.
But once he fulfills his part in her summoning, removing any trace of humanity in him, Messiah absorbs Barago using Kaoru's body as a medium upon being awakened to use his power to complete the process. Her plans to reach the human world are foiled by Kouga, who enters her realm and defeats her with spiritual help from Kaoru. She is ultimately defeated when, overconfident with her powers, she runs his sword into her head and releasing Kiba in the process as she is forced back into her dormant state.
Notes & TriviaEdit
- Messiah is one of the few Horrors whose natural form is human-like in appearance. The other two human-like Horrors are Karma and Gyanon.
