Shin Megami Tensei V daily demon vol. 126 – Titania
Atlus has issued the latest demon trailer for Shin Megami Tensei V, which offers up a look at Titania. This demon first appeared in Shin Megami Tensei II.
Here’s some background information Titania, courtesy of the Megami Tensei Wiki:
itania is the high queen of the fae and the wife of the high fae king Oberon. With her faithful flower pixies by her side, she gathers magic from moonlight. Titania resides in the Kingdom of Fairyland, where she rules over the moonlit Fairy Forest. While considered stunningly beautiful and delicate, she is also portrayed as a very proud fairy, with powers that easily match those of her husband.
She is derived from the fairy queen character in William Shakespeare’s play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which in traditional folklore had no name. In the play, Titania and Oberon are engaged in a marital quarrel over which of them should have the keeping of an Indian changeling boy. This quarrel is the engine that drives the mix-ups and confusion of the other characters in the play. Due to an enchantment cast by Oberon’s servant Puck, Titania magically falls in love with a “rude mechanical” (a laborer), Nick Bottom the weaver, who has been given the head of a donkey by Puck, who feels it is better suited to his character.
The name Titania is thought to be derived from the Roman goddess Diana. It may also mean “daughter of the earth” or “daughter of the Titans.” Due to the massive success of the play and its status as a classic, Titania is used to name the fairy queen in many other works of fiction.
