Shin Megami Tensei V daily demon vol. 147 – Leanan Sidhe
Atlus has released the latest daily demon video for Shin Megami Tensei V. The latest featured demon is the Femme Race demon Leanan Sidhe, check out the video and more details below the break.
Here is some additional lore information behind Lanan Sidhe, courtesy of the Megami Tensei wiki:
In Celtic folklore, the Irish leanan sídhe is a beautiful woman of the Aos Sí (or fairy folk) who takes a human lover. Lovers of the Leanan Sídhe are said to live brief, though highly inspired, lives. The Leanan Sídhe is generally depicted as a beautiful muse, who offers inspiration to an artist in exchange for fame and glory; however, this exchange frequently results in madness for the artist, and often premature death.
They seek the love of mortals. If the object of their affection refuses, she must be their slave; if they consent, they are hers and can only escape by finding another to take their place. The fairy lives on with their life, leaving the object of a leanan sidhe’s affection to waste away.
The name comes from the Gaelic word “leannan,” a sweetheart, concubine or favorite. Also, Sídhe, “of the fairy mounds.”
Shin Megami Tensei V arrives on Switch on November 12. Earlier coverage for the game, including previous daily demon videos, can be found here.
