—Nevan to Dante, Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening
Nevan the Sorceress of the Abyss was one of the demon gatekeepers sealed away in the Temen-ni-gru by Sparda. She appears as a boss in Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening in Mission 09 and after Dante defeats her, she becomes a guitar-like devil arm of the same name.
Nevan appears as a gray skinned woman with long red hair that covers her breasts. Completely naked, she wears a dress like cloak that's made entirely out of bats, and covers the lower portion of her body.
A natural seductress, Nevan often flirts with people and even uses her body in a seductive manner to lure them down the dark path of hell or to kill them. In addition to being seductive and dangerous, she also appears to have some level of humor and is at least capable of being attracted to others, having referred to Sparda as a "handsome devil" and further stated Dante was "no slouch" himself.
Devil May Cry 3Edit
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Nevan is a powerful demon in which can control and call upon lightning and is composed entire of magical bats. While being powerful in her own right and possessing the same resilience and stamina as most higher demons, she is in neither in Dante nor Sparda's league as both have bested her in battle.
- Life-draining Kiss: She possesses a life-draining kissing ability to replenish her own health.
- Electrokinesis: Nevan can call upon purple lightning from the heavens as well as from within her own body to attack her opponents.
- Bat Summoning: She can manipulate these bats as sharp whirlwinds.
- Teleportation: She can disappear in an instant in smoke.
Nevan is a natural seductress who uses her feminine allure and sexuality to exploit and control other individuals, particularly men.
Before Devil May Cry 3Edit
Devil May Cry 3Edit
Dante meets her on his path down to the Lair of Judgement. When he enters the Sunken Opera House, she greets the young demon and begins flirting with him. After their flirtful banter, both demons then engage in battle and results in Dante defeating Nevan. She relinquishes her soul to Dante as a Devil Arm shortly after.
- Nevan's name is a Japanese transliteration of the Irish Nemain, who in Irish Mythology is the personification of the frenzied havoc of war.
- In the Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition Concept Art gallery, Nevan had brown hair instead of the red hair.
