Atlus has shared the latest daily demon video for Shin Megami Tensei V. The featured demon this time is Oberon, check out the video and more details below the break.

Here are some additional lore details from the Megami Tensei Wiki:

Oberon is the high king of the Fae and the husband of Titania (or Mab), the high queen of the Fae. He rules over the moonlight, dreams and all fairy rites. Some depictions say he is in charge of only the Seelie Court, but other depictions make him the leader of the entire fairyland. Although he has the face of a handsome young man, a curse has made him no taller than a young child that he received shortly after birth. However, the curse gives him eternal beauty.

Oberon is described as a benevolent being by the Fae, although others state that he is quite malicious when a certain incident affects the well being of his kingdom and people. He is polite and sometimes even friendly towards humans, however, he can be a selfish, short-tempered ruler, often falling in love and flirting with human women, only to be restrained by his consort Titania. It is said that when Oberon is angry, his rage affects the very weather and causes nature to fall into discord. The two are said to have once lived in India, and they would cross the sea to Europe at night to dance in the moonlight.

He first became widely known when he appeared as a character in Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” but appeared earlier in the 13th century French epic “Huon of Bordeaux.” In some stories, specifically in “Huon of Bordeaux,” it is said that he is the son of Morgan le Fey and Julius Caesar, believed to have been born some time after Caesar’s defeat of Pompey.

Shin Megami Tensei V is scheduled to arrive on Switch on November 12. Earlier coverage for the game, including past daily demon videos, can be found here.
