Cleopatra is a demon in the series.

History[edit | edit source]

Celopatra VII Philopator was the last active ruler of Ptolemaic Egypt. As a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty, she was a descendant of its founder Ptolemy I Soter, a Macedonian Greek general and companion of Alexander the Great.

While still young, Cleopatra's two elder sisters, Cleopatra VI Tryphaena and Berenice IV, attempted to seize the throne from their father when he fled to Rome for support against his enemies. Both women were brutally killed for their efforts, leaving Cleopatra as the eldest of her father's remaining offspring.

Cleopatra heard of the arrival of the greatest hero of her time: Julius Caesar. Caesar came to Egypt in pursuit of his old rival and former son-in-law Pompey Magnus. She forged an alliance with Caesar to secure power and, following his death, joined the general Mark Antony in opposing Caesar's grandnephew and heir Octavian. After defeating Antony and Cleopatra's naval fleet, Octavian's forces invaded Egypt and defeated Antony.

In the confusion following the battle, the lovers were separated. Antony, fearing that Cleopatra was dead due to a false report, committed suicide, learning too late that his lover had survived. Not wanting to be captured by the Romans, Cleopatra then killed herself, presumably by letting an asp (a poisonous Egyptian snake) bite her.

After the death of Cleopatra, Egypt became a province of the Roman Empire, marking the end of the second to last Hellenistic state and the age that had lasted since the reign of Alexander.

Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse[edit | edit source]

"More specifically, "Cleopatra VII." Her name means "glory of the father" in Greek. She is known as one of the greatest beauties ever to live, having charmed many with her musical voice and conversation skills. It is said that all of history would have unfolded differently had she even just her nose been longer or shorter."
Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse compendium

Cleopatra only appears and is fought during the DLC quest "Coastal Inverted Pyramid." It is conducted without the assistance of any allies.

Nanashi receives a quest to investigate the sudden disappearance of several women. He has also noted the disappearance of Asahi. Upon arrival at a structure with a peculiar resemblance to an inverted pyramid, he notices that the area is almost completely covered in roses. Further investigation reveals that there are mummified bodies beneath them. He journeys deeper into the structure to find and release Asahi, only to get attacked by an army of Egyptian demons.

After their defeat, they lament the failure to fully revive Cleopatra, since Asahi was the last of the 1465 women they had abducted to complete the ritual. Nevertheless, Cleopatra revives in her slightly imperfect form, attacking Nanashi for his interference.

Defeating Cleopatra unlocks her for fusion. She is fused through a special fusion of Sphinx, Phoenix and Sarasvati. She can teach Nanashi the Deadly Wind, Ice Age and Mediarahan skills through her Demon Whisper. Cleopatra benefits from learning Light, Ice, Force, ailment and healing skills.
