Bayonetta (birth name Cereza) is the eponymous main character and protagonist of the Bayonetta series. She is a coquettish and mysterious Umbra Witch. Considered the black sheep of the Umbra Witches due to her Umbran and Lumen descent in which breaks the respective clan's sacred tenants, she possesses a remarkable talent for Bullet Arts and also possesses the Left Eye of Darkness. In the first game, she was sealed away for five hundred years until she was later found and awaken. Spending twenty years with amnesia, she battles against the angelic hordes of Paradiso and fights to end the malicious plans of the last of the Lumen Sages, Balder. Months after, Bayonetta in the second game finds her friend and fellow clans member Jeanne taken down to the realm of Inferno after a summon gone wrong. With the help of Rodin, she not only is hounded by angels but even demons and uncovers a deeper plot of a former half of a god conspiring to reclaim his lost power and the truth behind the Witch Hunts. As the main protagonist, she is playable in both Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 as well as Tag Climax. She is set to appear as a playable character in Bayonetta 3.
She can be seen during the final battle.
