Black Maria is a Demon in the series.

HistoryEdit

Black Maria refers to the Black Madonna, or Black Virgin, which is a depiction of the Virgin Mary which has dark or black skin. Black Madonnas may have grown out of pre-Christian earth goddess traditions and that their dark skin may be associated with ancient images of these goddesses and the color of the fertile earth. Further assertions say that some of their Christian shrines were built on sites dedicated to Cybele and Diana, or Artemis of Ephesus.

Some say that Black Madonnas sprouted from the goddess Isis, which implies that the dark skin may have echoed an African archetypal mother figure. It is also claimed that they express a feminine power that is not fully conveyed by the paler Virgin Mary, which symbolizes gentler qualities, such as obedience and purity. This feminine power may be linked to female sexuality, which was suppressed by the early or medieval Christian Church.

Black Maria's design is based on Jean Delville's The Idol of Perversity.

ProfileEdit

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

Black Maria was implemented in October 2015 as part of the The Die is Cast questline. She can be fused in a double-fusion of Anat and Jeanne D'Arc.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange JourneyEdit

"A holy mother of the dark, of Christian descent.
The statues in regular churches are usually of the Virgin Mary, but there exist some suspicious black statues. They say that these statues have their origins in the Middle East, such as Egypt's Isis and the Phrygian Cybele."

Shin Megami Tensei IVEdit

"A holy mother of the dark, of Christian descent.
The statues in regular churches are usually of the Virgin Mary, but there exist some suspicious black statues. They say that these statues have their origins in the Middle East, such as Egypt's Isis and the Phrygian Cybele."
Shin Megami Tensei IV compendium

Black Maria was formerly the Lady Danu who ruled over the fairies. Due to religious persecution and the threat of the Fairy race being destroyed completely, the Lady Danu had no choice but to merge with an interpretation of the Virgin Mary to become Black Maria as a way to save her beloved children.

When Nozomi summons her, at the request of the fairies, Black Maria reveals that she cannot return to being the Lady Danu. However, as a compromise, she names Nozomi as her successor and passes down the powers Nozomi will need to fulfill her role as the next Lady Danu. With this completed, Black Maria bids Nozomi and Flynn farewell as she returns to her duties as Black Maria.
