Jeanne d'Arc, also known as Joan of Arc or The Maid of Orléans, is a medieval heroine of the Kingdom of France and a Catholic saint. A peasant girl born in eastern France to Jacques d'Arc and Isabelle Romée, a peasant family, at Domrémy. Her mother taught her domestic skills and religion, and she was known throughout the region for her kindness to others.
She led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years' War, claiming divine guidance, and was indirectly responsible for the coronation of Charles VII. Joan asserted that she had visions from God that told her to recover her homeland from English domination late in the Hundred Years' War. The uncrowned King Charles VII sent her to the siege at Orléans as part of a relief mission. She gained prominence when she overcame the dismissive attitude of veteran commanders and lifted the siege in only nine days. Several more swift victories led to Charles VII's coronation at Reims and settled the disputed succession to the throne.
She was captured by the Burgundians, a group of French nobles allied with the English, who sold her to the English. She was later handed over to the English and put on trial by an ecclesiastical court lead by the pro-English bishop Pierre Cauchon on a variety of charges, and burned at the stake when she was nineteen years old. After she died, the English raked back the coals to expose her charred body so that no one could claim she had escaped alive. The executioner, Geoffroy Thérage, later stated that he "greatly feared to be damned for he had burned a holy woman."
Twenty-four years later, on the initiative of Charles VII, Pope Callixtus III reviewed the decision of the ecclesiastical court, found her innocent, and declared her a martyr. She was beatified in 1909 and canonized in 1920. She is, along with St. Denis, St. Martin of Tours, St. Louis IX, St. Radegund, St. Remigius, St. Petronilla, St. Michael the Archangel, St. Theresa of Lisieux and the Virgin Mary, one of the patron saints of France.
Joan of Arc has remained a popular figure in literature, painting, sculpture, and other cultural works since the time of her death, and many famous writers, playwrights, filmmakers, artists, and composers have created, and continue to create, cultural depictions of her.
Jeanne d'Arc appeared as an event boss alongside Demi-fiend, Michael and Beelzebub's fly form for the fifth anniversary Judgement Day event. She was later added as a plug-in obtainable through Denshi Kairo or the Secret Room and can be acquired through the special triple fusion of Hell Biker, Alice and Valkyrie. At level 91, she learns a special resurrection skill called Maiden's Prayer that can revive a player or demon at full health.
Shin Megami Tensei IV
Jeanne d'Arc, like most of the Famed Race demons, can only be obtained as the result of a fusion accident. A combination of a KO'd Foul demon, such as Mad Gasser, and a KO'd Vidofnir will yield a high chance of a fusion accident that can summon Jeanne d'Arc. Jeanne d'Arc can teach Flynn the Mediarama, Samarecarm and Luster Candy skills through her Demon Whisper, along with any inherited from the initial demons.
Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse
As in the previous game, the majority of the Famed Race demons can only be obtained as the result of a fusion accident, though a few can also be purchased through the "A Godslayer Needs Demons" DLC or obtained if certain requirements are met using the Fusion-type DDS.
