Hecatia Lapislazuli (ヘカーティア・ラピスラズリ Hekātia Rapisurazuri) is a Goddess of Hell.

General Information[edit]

Hecatia appeared as the Extra Stage Boss in Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom.

Personality[edit]

Abilities and Possessions[edit]

Ability to have three bodies

Hecatia's ability allows her to exist on Earth, the Moon, and the Otherworlds all at once with different bodies, while her "core" self resides in Hell. As places like Gensokyo and the Dream World are Otherworlds, Hecatia can access these, as well.

Background Information[edit]

Her full name is Hecatia Lapislazuli (ヘカーティア・ラピスラズリ). Her given name, Hecatia, is derived from Hecate (Ἑκάτη, Hekátē), the Greek goddess, whom Hecatia is believed to be based on. Her last name, Lapislazuli, is the name of a stone prized since antiquity for its rich, deep blue color.

Origin[edit]

Hecatia was associated with the underworld in myth through forms of magic, like witchcraft, necromancy, and sorcery, ghosts, thresholds and crossroads, and the border between worlds. She was also associated with dogs, light, the Moon, and knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants. Her Roman depiction, Trivia, was similar, along with being associated with graveyards. Hecate is also commonly depicted with three heads or bodies, representing crossroads.

Design[edit]

Hecatia appears within the Dream World with red eyes and hair. She is fairly modern looking, wearing a short, three-colored, plaid skirt, and a black t-shirt with "Welcome ❤ Hell" written on the front, worn off her shoulders. She also wears a collar, with chains attached, each one leading to an orb of the Moon, the Earth, and an orb representing the Otherworlds, the last of which sits in her hat atop her head. During the course of her fight, her hair and eyes turn blue or blonde as she switches the Otherworld orb with the Earth or Moon orbs respectively. As it mentioned in the liner notes to her theme, her outfit is inspired by Death Metal. ZUN thought of the process "Hell -> Shinigami (death gods) -> Death -> Death Metal".[1]

Hecatia's Appearances[edit]

Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom

Relationships[edit]

Junko

Hecatia, like her would-be friend Junko, has a grudge with Chang'e. It was Chang'e's husband who shot down the sun, and without the sun, Hell can't exist because shadows become weak. However, it mostly seems to be through Junko's influence that her grudge exists. Because she sympathized with Junko, she decides to side with her in Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom.

Clownpiece

Clownpiece is a subordinate of Hecatia, who allows Junko to use Clownpiece in her scheme against the Lunar Capital.

Spell Cards[edit]

Additional Information[edit]

  • Due to Junko sometimes jumping in during the fight, Hecatia has the lowest number of spell cards as an extra stage boss. Most extra bosses will have ten, but Hecatia has eight.
