The Secretaries serve as enemies in Devil May Cry 2. They are private bodyguards for Arius, the CEO of Uroboros Corporation, but their true identity is that they are in fact his "mannequins", artificial devils created in secret experiments based on his arcane knowledge.
A Secretary wears a plum leather outfit with leather gloves and high-heeled boots, and wears a bird-like feathered mask at all times to conceal her face. They have the body of a beautiful young woman, but can also assume a Devil Trigger form. These demonic forms look much the same as Lucia's own Devil Trigger, but have dark feathers, making them appear as the raven to Lucia's dove.
Devil May Cry 2Edit
Long before Dante is called to Dumary Island, "Χ" was one of the Secretaries, but due to a defect, Arius ordered for her to be disposed of. However, Matier found the demon and raised her as a daughter, naming her "Lucia". Like her foster mother, Lucia became one of the Vie de Marli who protect the island. Years later, when Lucia confronts Arius at the oil rig's helicopter pad, he reveals her true nature as a defective Secretary, and has one of his attendant Secretaries remove her mask to reveal a face that matches Lucia's. In disbelief, she attacks, but her daggers are deflected back at her, ripping her clothes and revealing the "Χ" marked on her shoulder.
In order to prevent Arius from summoning Argosax the Chaos, Dante ascends the Uroboros Corporation's Skyscraper Sanctum. When he reaches the top, he reveals that he switched the Arcana Medaglia with his own two-sided coin, which causes the ritual to fail. Furious, Arius and his Secretaries attack Dante, but they are defeated.
Lucia obtains the "Secretary" costume after clearing Lucia Must Die mode.
The Secretarybird is a long-legged, raptor-like bird of prey native to Africa. While the exact history behind the bird's name is unclear, the demon's name can be interpreted as a homograph; referring either to the bird, with which it shares several aesthetic similarities, or to its role as an office assistant.
