EtymologyEdit

The goddess is unnamed by the characters in the manga and anime. See Rabona.

VIZ Media translates Father Vincent's androgynous 神 (kami Speaker) as referring to a male deity ("Lord").[2] A male god is 雄神 okami, a female 女神 megami Speaker. Neither is mentioned in the original Japanese text.

DescriptionEdit

MarianneEdit

The goddess resembles a winged version of Marianne, as depicted in Liberty Leading the People, by French Romantic painter, Eugène Delacroix.

"Marianne" holds a sword and a streamer bearing crosses.[3] The streamer and staff resembles the Rod of Asclepius. The streamer also resembles the dollar sign, the symbol of pesos and dollars, which may allude to the wealth of the church.

Other goddessesEdit

As an alternative to the "Marianne" hypothesis, the goddess could one of the twin goddesses, Teresa and Clare. The Goddess of Rabona also resembles the ancient Greek Nike.

HistoryEdit

Covert missionEdit

Clare is sent to the Holy City of Rabona, on request from Vincent.[4] She investigates murders in Rabona Cathedral.
