332 - Bennu

Bennu`s official artwork.

Bennu ( ベンヌ, Bennu ) is a demon in the series.


The Bennu bird serves as the Egyptian correspondence to the Phoenix, and is said to be the soul of the Sun-God Amon-Ra. Some of the titles of the Bennu bird were “He Who Came Into Being by Himself,” “Ascending One,” and “Lord of Jubilees.”

It was associated with the rising of the Nile, resurrection, and the sun. Because the Bennu represented creation and renewal, it was connected with the Egyptian calendar. Indeed, the Temple of the Bennu was well known for its time-keeping devices.
