Re Zero Light Novel Volume 16 1

Priestella (プリステラ, Purisutera), also known as the Water Gate City (水門都市, Suimon Toshi) is one of the five regional capitals of the Kingdom of Lugnica. The city of Priestella was formerly being lead by the Priestellan Council of Ten, until the Witch Cult allegedly slaughtered nine of them, leaving only Kiritaka Muse alive.


Priestella is the closest city to Kararagi, with the Tigracy River separating the two. Priestella is a beautiful city and a famous tourist location that is built in the middle of a large lake, with waterways running through the city. The waterways divide the city into four blocks called districts which are numbered clockwise from the main gate.

The city's construction is said to have been responsible by Hoshin of the Wilderness and has been long associated with merchants because of its proximity to Kararagi.


Priestella was built as a trap mechanism for extremely dangerous individuals and creatures, specifically the Witches and strong Demon Beasts. The control towers were designed so that they could flood the entire city when the flood gates are all released. This mechanism was successfully used in the past to kill Typhon.

A year after the arrival of Subaru in Lugnica, Anastasia Hoshin decided to organize a party in Priestella for the Camps participating in the Royal Election. As they arrived, several Witch Cult Sin Archbishops took control over the city, with Regulus Corneas preparing a forced marriage with Emilia. Because of this, all five Royal Election Camps have to work together in order to stop this tragedy.

As the fighting came to its conclusion, Regulus Corneas was killed by Reinhard van Astrea and Natsuki Subaru, and Sirius was captured with the help of Liliana Masquerade and Priscilla Barielle. Despite their triumph, multiple people were transformed and various people including Crusch Karsten got poisoned by Capella Emerada Lugnica's Dragon Veins. In addition to the former, the Sin Archbishops of Gluttony also erased multiple people, including Julius Juukulius and Joshua Juukulius. To look for answers, Anastasia Hoshin suggested to visit the Pleiades Watchtower, resulting in Subaru leading a group.
