Developed by PlatinumGamnes, Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon released worldwide on the Nintendo Switch on March 17, 2023. Unlike other Bayonetta games, Cereza and the Lost Demon is a spin-off title that thrusts a much younger version of Bayonetta into the spotlight, before she grows up into the kick arse, sassy Umbra witch we all know her to be.
With numerous characters, some who are well-known and others who are new additions to the world of Bayonetta, we felt it was high-time to showcase a few of them and now is time to talk about a demon that only trusts power, Cheshire:
Cheshire: (A Demon Trusting Only Power)
A demon summoned by Cereza on the night of the full moon.
Traditionally, Umbra Witches use their hair as a medium to control their demons, but the ritual proved too difficult for Cereza, and the demon somehow found himself in Cereza’s stuffed toy.
The demon, humiliated by such a vessel, demanded to be returned to Inferno immediately, but the inexperienced Cereza had no idea how to help. And being bound to the magical energy of whoever summoned him, he realised he was unable to separate himself from her. Reluctantly, he agrees to accompany her just until they find a way to send him home.
Having been just newly born in Inferno when called, he had yet to be given name. Cereza decides to simply call him Cheshire, after the name of the stuffed toy he inhabits.
