Virtue is a demon in the series.

History[edit | edit source]

Virtues, or Strongholds, are part of the second sphere of the Christian hierarchy of angels and watch over the movement of the heavenly bodies so that order is maintained. They are also part of the ministries through which signs and miracles are made in the world. Known as the shining ones, they at times are portrayed as having a physical form, however, these forms appear as if they are melded with the cosmos themselves, a description that fits and reflects off of their duties assigned to them by God.

They are also said to be the fifth rank of angel (possibly referring to Maimonides' hierarchy, where they would be equivalent to the Jewish definition of Seraphim), and apparently are responsible for the distribution of miracles. Just as they govern the movements of celestial bodies, they are also said to be in control of the seasons, stars, moon and even the sun, therefore, what is witnessed throughout the vast reaches of space concerning the orbiting of planets, arrangement of stars, as well as specific suns set for a system are all manipulated by the Virtues.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Shin Megami Tensei[edit | edit source]

SMT-VirtueSprite.gif
"Origin: Israel. They are the second of the middle angels. Their name means 'God's virtue' and 'purity.' They are spirits with no physical body who are sometimes called 'The Shining Ones.' Virtues are the angels of grace and grant the power of God through the form of miracles."
Shin Megami Tensei A-Mode DDS dictionary

Virtues are simply recolored Dominions. Despite the in-game descriptions for Divine race demons saying they are weak to sword, in actuality they take normal damage from sword attacks and resist everything else except for Dex and Needle, so they are only weak to it by comparison.

Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne[edit | edit source]

Virtues appear as normal enemies in the Amala Temple and the ruins of Mifunashiro, as well as the Third Kalpa of the Labyrinth of Amala. Additionally, the White Rider will summon Virtues to its side (up to two) whenever possible.

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINE[edit | edit source]

"The fifth class of angels, ranked second among the Second Sphere. Their name signifies the virtue of God.
Virtues lack physical bodies and cannot directly affect reality. They are known as "the shining ones" and "the luminous ones." Virtues manifest themselves in the form of miracles. They create miracles before all who strive toward noble goals or fight in the name of good, bestowing favor and courage upon them.
It is said that two of these angels of might were summoned to accompany Christ during his Ascension. They also acted as midwives for the birth of Cain, Adam and Eve's first child."

Virtue can be caught on Shinagawa field and appear as one of the boss mobs in Diaspora Shinagawa.
