This page is about the Sin Archbishop. For the Princess of Lugnica, see Emerada Lugnica
Capella Emerada Lugnica (カペラ・エメラダ・ルグニカ) is a Sin Archbishop of the Witch Cult, representing Lust. Debuting in Arc 5, she acted as one of the main antagonists of that arc, alongside her fellow Sin Archbishops, turning innocent civilians into flies, chunks of meat and Dragons, forcing Subaru and others to travel to the Pleiades Watchtower in order to revert the damage done by Capella. She later fled away after the Cult's defeat during Arc 5.
She is also known as Mother (母 Haha) who leads the Assassin Organization that operates in all four countries. Due to her leadership of the aforementioned Assassin Organization, she can be noted as a minor overarching antagonist of Arc 1, Arc 2 and Arc 4, despite not making an appearance.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Because of her authority, Capella's actual form is unknown, though she has transformed into a giant black dragon with golden horns, a small girl, a well endowed woman, an honest looking village girl, a multitude of field mice, and an innocent looking young girl with a lewd smile.
In her most common form, Capella has short golden hair with a rose attached at the end of her ponytail. She wears revealing clothes, hot pants, leggings, a bikini and nothing more. She also has a yaeba that becomes prominent when she laughs. This form also has a great resemblance to Felt and Fourier Lugnica.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Capella is considered to be the worst personality-wise among the Sin Archbishops. She speaks in a way that sounds like she spits and tramples upon courtesy while having a cruel personality. She claims that all the love and respect in the world exists to be monopolized by her. Even among the Sin Archbishops famed for their vulgar personalities and irredeemable actions, Capella is considered a special brand of evil. Lust views people other than herself as mere bags of meat meant to operate as she deems fit. As she sees those around her as little more than animals, Capella cares not for the opinions and feelings of others nor whether or not her actions caused pain and suffering. She also revels in the pain of others, often cackling while bringing torment to other people.
Changing her and others' appearances so that everyone would come to love her, making her a monster that plays with the dignity and values of people, all the while spitting her brand of ridicule. As other Witch Cult, she is shown to not think highly of her fellow Sin Archbishops, referring to them with degrading nicknames when not using their names.
Befitting her title as the bearer of the Lust Witch Factor, Capella is obsessed with the concept of love, feeling a great urge for every single person in the world to love her. Although, like everything about the Archbishop, Capella's idea of love is severely warped. She presents excessive pride in regards to herself, often citing herself as a kind woman whose beauty compared to none.
As Mother of the Assassin Organization, Capella spends her days gathering brilliant and extraordinarily eccentric individuals who she refers to as her children–her underlings who she uses for her own benefits and goals. According to both Elsa and Meili, Mother is extremely cruel and unforgivable as even the slightest mistake might result in harsh punishments, such as being temporarily morphed into countless frogs, be slaughtered or simply turned into a shapeless pile of meat for all eternity. According to Capella, her children are individuals who will devote their bodies and souls to her and make her wishes come true and bring her gifts beyond her wildest dreams, no matter the cost. By doing so, they will express their unbounded love for Capella–something she cherishes more than anything else in the world.
History[edit | edit source]
Nine years before Natsuki Subaru's summoning, Capella, as the leader of the Assassin Organization, tasked a former slave named Reisel with retrieving an object relating to the legacy of the Witches. The object in question was a fox-like artificial spirit created by the Witch of Greed roughly four centuries prior. In order to help him complete his mission, Capella loaned him a magical artifact that would allow him to manipulate shadows in certain ways. However, Reisel's mission was ultimately thwarted and he was forced to destroy the artifact that Capella had given to him. Mother, in her usual ruthless fashion, decided to punish her failure of a subordinate, prunning him and turning him into a pile of meat without any shape or form.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Authority of Lust (色欲の権能 Shikiyoku no Ken'nō): Capella is able to use the Authority of Lust.
- Variation and Change (変異と変貌 Hen'i to Henbō) Capella is shown to able to transform herself or others into various beings. Her self-transformations include modifying her body parts by adding wings or claws, or a strong black dragon. She hws repeatedly shown to have transformed others into various animals such as flies, frogs, birds, beasts or straight up turn them into unrecognizable lumps of flesh without any of the five senses or self awareness, by simply touching them with her hand. It's worth noting that when she transforms a single person into a group of animals, their consciousness splits and every animal shares the same mind. This ability can also be used as a way of healing herself by transforming damaged parts into uninjured parts, with Al mentioning that Capella was able to heal "after I cut her head off and crushed her heart", and any spare parts generated through healing dissolve on their own.
- Black Flames: In her dragon transformation, Capella is capable of producing powerful jet black flames that consume everything and cannot be put out by water.
- Black Dragon Blood: Capella is able to infect people with her dragon blood, covering her target with black veins and making them sick, as shown when she infected Crusch Karsten.
- Witch Cult Gospel: As a member of the Witch Cult, Capella is the owner of a copy of the Witch Cult Gospel. Each Witch Cult Gospel was a replica of the Book of Wisdom, a book that had been in the possession of the Witch of Greed Echidna. The Book of Wisdom would provide exact details of future events concerning the Witch of Greed, essentially bestowing Echidna with a form of precognition. Unlike the original Book of Wisdom, the Gospels of the Witch Cult were imperfect replicas, meaning that, although they detailed the future of its owner, the events conveyed were subject to change and the information provided was often up for interpretation. The Gospels took the form of small black books that could only be read by their owners.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Like the other Sin Archbishops (with the exception of Stride Vollachia), Lugnica received her namesake from a celestial body. Capella is the name of the brightest star in the Auriga constellation. In Latin and various other languages/cultures, the star Capella was known as the "little goat" or the "female goat".
- When she assumes a different form her "gate" changes.
- If Carmilla and Capella were to fight, Capella would lose; though the author stated it would be a really close fight.
