The Embryon

Serph

File:Serph185 3694.jpg

The Silent Protagonist of the game, Serph is the leader of the Embryon. Even with his emotions awakened, he remains a calm and composed leader for his Tribe. Over the course of the game, he forms a bond with Sera and soon becomes determined to protect her.

His Atma is the Water Crown, and his demon form is Varna.

He is based on Sera's perception of who Serph Sheffield was. His lack of personality reflects how little she actually knew of the real Serph; however, he grows as a character and becomes distinct from both the original Serph Sheffield and Sera's false perception of him.


Heat

File:Heat185 2425.jpg

Serph's second-in-command in the Embryon, and their strongest physical fighter. Heat quickly grows to enjoy his newfound powers and has no qualms with devouring others to survive. Despite his abrasive behaviour, he has a strong, maddening affinity towards Sera which he struggles to cope with.

His Atma is Fireball, and his demon form is Agni.

He is based on Sera's perception of Heat O'Brien, a scientist who worked alongside Serph Sheffield on the God Project. Despite his hostile exterior, O'Brien genuinely cared for Sera and became horrified at how callously Sheffield treated her. When O'Brien attempted to stop him and save Sera's life, he was shot in the back by Argilla (under Sheffield's manipulations). O'Brien's data then became trapped in the E.G.G. and watched over Sera while his counterpart in the Junkyard developed to become his own person.


Argilla

File:Argilla185 8249.jpg

Argilla is the Embyron's main sniper, and is often paired with Serph on the most high-priority missions. She shows the most reluctance and horror towards her demonic transformation, even refusing to eat for a time. Over time she grows to accept the reality of her situation, becoming the most compassionate of the Embryon yet also doing what it takes to reach Nirvana and be rid of her powers.

Her Atma is Seismic Wave, which lets her transform into Prithivi.

Argilla was based upon a nurse who took care of Sera during her time in the God Project. Although caring and flirtatious, the real Argilla fell prey to Serph Sheffield's manipulations and killed Heat O'Brien when he threatened Serph with a gun.


Gale

File:Gale185 2173.jpg

Gale is the main tactical advisor for the Embryon, whose analytical and intelligent mind has led the Embryon to multiple victories. Gale values logic and rationality above all else, and finds himself increasingly isolated from his comrades as they develop their emotions.

His Atma is Twister, which transforms him into Vayu.

His past self was David Gale, a researcher in love with Jenna Angel. Unfortunately, he caught Curvier Syndrome and died when his isolation ward was attacked by terrorists. Although he spent his dying moments trying to put Jenna's mind at ease, his death acted as the catalyst for many of her machinations.


Cielo

File:Cielo185 5578.jpg

Cielo is a capable fighter in the Embryon, though he lacks any particular speciality. After he awakens his Atma, he gains a thick Jamaican accent and becomes the most playful and vibrant member of the group.

His Atma is Rainbow Arch, and his demon form is Dyaus.

He was based on one of the other children involved in the preliminary stages of the God Project, where he struck up a lasting friendship with Sera. Unfortunately, he would end up dying in the experiments along with every other child except for Sera.


Sera

File:Sera185 8445.jpg

A mysterious black-haired girl who appears in the Junkyard along with the Atma. Unlike the other inhabitants of the Junkyard, she bears no identifying Tag Ring. Sera has no memory of her past, but claims to have come to the Junkyard to help everyone. Her song can pacify the demonic inhabitants of the world, preventing them from going berserk.

Sera is actually the creator of the Junkyard, using a psychic power that allows her to manipulate data. In the real world, her power was used in a series of experiments designed to communicate with the superbeing known as "God". Because of the stress of these experiments, Sera created the Junkyard as a private paradise and haven for her own mind. When the existence of the Junkyard was discovered, the scientists forced her to re-purpose it into a military simulator for the development of combat A.Is.

When Jenna Angel attempted to use the Junkyard as a testing ground for her plan to unleash the Demon Virus on a worldwide scale, Sera forcibly inserted her consciousness into the program at the cost of her memories. Her real body rests in the real world, hooked into an incubator that sustains her frail life.

During the events of Digital Devil Saga 2 she inherits the Water Crown Atma from Serph, which lets her transform into Varuni.



Rival Tribes

Harley

He finally snaps after being cornered by the Embryon, who just wanted to exchange information on what happened at Ground Zero. He attacks them in a desperate rage and is killed.


Jinana

Bat

File:Bat185 5153.jpg

After switching sides to the Solids and then the Brutes, Bat ultimately dies after a final rematch with Serph when the ship he is on explodes as part of a plan to weaken the Brutes.


Mick The Slug

File:MickTheSlug185 7521.jpg

The leader of the Solids. After gaining the power of Atma, Mick becomes a cruel and sadistic leader who takes great pleasure in devouring others.

He captures Sera from the Embryon as per the Karma Temple's orders. However, he is betrayed by Bat and cornered by the Embryon, who kill him.

Lupa

The honourable and powerful leader of the Wolves. His tribe takes heavy casualities against the Brutes, and he approaches the Embryon for support.

His Atma is Lava Flow, and his demon form is Cerberus.

His belief in honour ultimately leads to his downfall when he refuses to eat the corpses of his fallen opponents. He succumbs to the madness of the Demon Virus and is put down by the Embryon.


Varin Omega

File:Varin185 3679.jpg

The ruthless leader of the Brutes. After gaining emotions, he refers to himself as "Colonel Beck" and seems to know more about the Junkyard than anyone else. He carries a powerful grudge against Serph.

His Atma is Turbulance, and his demon form is Ravana.

His past self was Colonel Beck, the military commander who ultimately approved the project that led to the current state of events in the world.

Other Characters

Angel

File:Angel185 2862.jpg

A mysterious being who grants the Junkyard the power of Atma, and commands them to bring Sera to Nirvana.

Her Atma is Maelstrom, and her demon form is Harihara.

Her true identity is Jenna Angel, the creator of the Demon Virus and Sera's mother/father. Her goal is to retrieve Sera's consciousness from the Junkyard so she can be used in her grand plan to spread the Demon Virus worldwide, reducing the world to a primal state of being.

Cquote2

Schrodinger

File:Schrodinger185 4242.jpg

Its true identity is Seraph. As an ascended being, Seraph exists beyond time and space and can therefore appear in the past to help guide its past selves towards enlightenment.



Introduced in DDS 2

Roland

File:Roland185 9250.jpg

The leader of the Lokapala resistance group that opposes the Karma Society. The stress of his position has driven him to drink, and he distrusts all demons. However, after meeting Serph he decides to sober up and join his cause, using the Demon Virus on himself so he can be an asset to the team.

Depending on the player's choices he will rejoin the team for the final dungeon instead of Heat.

His Atma is Lightning Bolt, and his demon form is Indra.


Fred

Serph Sheffield

File:Sheffield185 3494.jpg

A charismatic scientist working on a series of experiments called "The God Project". He has a strong bond with Sera.

His true self is a manipulative, power-hungry megalomaniac who seeks to use Sera's powers to become a god. He sees Sera and the people around him as mere tools to be used in his pursuit of this goal, and pushes the young girl to painful extremes while pretending to care about her.

His downfall comes after he indirectly murders Heat O'Brien for trying to stop him, and Sera witnesses his true nature. He is transformed into a demon, but instead of being reincarnated in the Junkyard his soul is trapped in the E.G.G..
