Developed by PlatinumGames, 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 the turn of the mysterious White Wolf:
The White Wolf: (The Majestic White Protector)
A wolf dwelling in Avalon with a mane white like winter snow.
“The white wolf…guide you…”
Just like the boy in Cereza’s dream said, the wolf appears before Cereza and Cheshire, as if to lead them through the forest.
Effortlessly evading each of Cheshire’s initial attempts to slash at him, it seems that this nimble movement is the reason he is able to survive the dangerous Avalon Forest in the first place.
Somehow aware of the location of the Elemental Cores, he appeared before Cereza to show her where they rest.
Inside the white wolf there is revealed to be the spirit of Lukaon, the true successor to the faerie kingdom, who was forced to escape there following a dispute for the throne.
As noble as the prince he is, he has struggled to protect and help all of the innocent who have somehow wandered into Avalon. While doing this, he has come across a fair number of young Umbra Witches, which he finds somewhat puzzling, but he works with the girls to try and help them escape Avalon.
The only way he can think of for them to accomplish this is for the girls to sacrifice their demon to restore his true power. Alas, every girl yet has met a tragic end before they can finalise their plan, which pains him greatly.
After Lukaon’s spirit left the wolf’s body to return to its own, the wolf simply reverted to its natural self, and disappeared into the forest.
