Seven Mortal Sins – 7 Todsünden
Lucifer, one of God’s archangels, is denounced for rebelling against the Almighty’s will and cast out of Heaven. She is forced into a brief stopover by crashing into a highschool’s church, where a young girl, Maria Totsuka, witnesses her arrival. After Lucifer has infused the girl with a part of her angel’s blood, she continues her fall into the depths of Hell, where she is met by Leviathan, the aspiring minor Demon Lord of Envy.
Soon after, Lucifer is challenged by the Seven Sins, the ruling Demon Lords of Hell, led by Belial. Bundling their powers, the Seven Sins overcome Lucifer and seal away her angelic powers by fitting her with a cursed Garb of Punishment, thereby turning her into a Demon Lord. Swearing revenge on her defeaters, Lucifer returns with Leviathan to Earth, where she turns Maria into her immortal slave. With her two sidekicks in tow, Lucifer sets out to defeat the Seven Sins one at a time in order to sunder their powers imbuing her Garb.

The aspiring Demon Lord of Envy, she becomes instantly infatuated with Lucifer upon the latter’s arrival in Hell and makes herself into the fallen angel’s sidekick. She is therefore continuously jealous of Maria because she receives the better part of Lucifer’s attention, though the two are quite capable of working together if it serves Lucifer’s interests. Has the ability to control water and water creatures.
Despite her slight figure, she is the most voracious of the Seven Sins, as well as perhaps the friendliest of them. She is physically distinguished by one single horn, similar to an alicorn, growing from the center of her forehead. Her motive for becoming a glutton was not out of pure self-indulgence, but to find a way of achieving happiness through eating and sharing that discovery with others. Her base of operations is in Paris.
Formerly the first of the Archangels of Heaven and the former leader of the Seven Lively Virtues, she was denounced and cast out of Heaven for her rebellion against the will of God, who seeks the destruction of both mankind and Hell for their inherent (but inevitable) corruption. After battling the Seven Mortal Sins for the first time, she is cursed by Belial with the Garb of Punishment, a barbed tattoo-like body-chain empowered by the Seven Sins which inhibits her angelic powers and torments her with constant pain and blood-letting. But while Lucifer’s immense pride was the cause for her fall from Heaven, it also proves to be her strongest weapon against both the predations of the Seven Sins and the power God.
As the representation of Sloth, Belphegor is the laziest and most easy-going of the Mortal Sins, sporting cat-like features like white hair and a claw-equipped tail, as well as two tiger-striped antelope-type horns. Her favorite hobbies are surfing, engaging in games inside the Internet and exchanging messages with Astaroth, with whom she is good friends because of their very similar moods. She gains followers by running a popular MMORPG, which is bankrolled by Mammon.
The Demon Lord of Greed who attempts to employ every opportunity to make a winning, specializing in real estates and the sale of home-brewed magical potions. Her greed is partially founded by the actions of her unnamed husband, who saddled her with 500,000 children and a load of debts on her shoulders. Mammon’s weapons of choice are bottles of dangerous chemicals. Her base of operations is in London.
As the representative of Lust, she is the most lecherous of the Seven Sins. She takes up residence in Miami and works around the clock to attract followers, including displaying her physique at the beach during the day and performing erotic pole dances in her nightclub at night. Owing to her lascivious nature, she is equally attracted to both women and men.
Representing Wrath, Satan is a fiery, red-headed Demon Lord whose main task is to judge the souls of the dead at the threshold of the Gates to Hell, and sentence the deserving to eternal damnation. While she has a hair-trigger temper, she also has a sense of honor and a love for cute and innocent things; for this reason she is especially fond of Beelzebub. She uses an ax in combat and has armies from all over the world serving as her followers.
