Wrathia Bellarmina is a Vengess, former queen of an intergalactic empire and the wife of Pedri. After her death, her soul attached to Ava Ire. She is usually drawn with an orange or red color theme, similar to Ava. When she is not drawn as a ghost, she is often seen smoking a pipe of Florem Mortem. She speaks with orange text in a dark red speech bubble. Wrathia first appears on page 0002.
Her first name "Wrathia" is an obvious reference to her associated sin, wrath. Her last name is likely a connection to Bellona, the Roman goddess of war.
Before the pact, Wrathia appears as a demon in varying shades of orange and red. She glows and is surrounded with small embers, representative of her theme of fire. As a Vengess, she has two large horns protruding from her forehead and framing her face. Her hair is long and flowing, and she wears no clothes.
After the pact, Wrathia appears more humanoid in appearance. Her skin is a deeper red, and she has circular orange markings on her skin. She starts to wear lots of make up and nail polish, and changes her hairstyle and outfits regularly. She tends to wear at least one article of clothing that is purple, often a hair ribbon, but has also appeared in a whole outfit of purple.
Wrathia is a very harsh, commanding demon, fitting with her sin, wrath. She has a quick temper, but is equally quick to calm down. She is willing to do anything for the sake of what she wants, even if she destroys someone's life in the process. In addition, she will omit information if it is deemed necessary to achieve her goals. She is a violent person, and represents battle and warfare, although she is in no way a strategic person. At the same time, Wrathia loves her husband very much and values her relationship with him very highly.
Wrathia loves luxury and to pamper herself. She likes to wear makeup and intricate clothing, preferring to indulge herself and relax in her spare time.
Wrathia appears to have fire-based abilities; her skin appears to be able to reach very high temperatures, as seen when she grows angry after TITAN's invasion and her tiara melts on her forehead. She is capable of her own powerful magic like all the demons, however it hasn't been revealed what she is capable of yet.
In life, she was proficient with potion making, though she had no prolonged interest in it. She turned to it in her desperation however and was able to brew the cursed wine that bonded her and her warriors to other lifeforms once dead.
However, as Michelle Czajkowski says in her formspring, Wrathia is not great at making strategies or plans.
Fifteen years prior to the beginning of the story, Wrathia was the queen of a huge empire alongside her husband, Pedri Nanezgani. The two had an heir together, an egg that would take 20 human years to hatch. Her empire was demanded to subjugate to TITAN. Knowing that surrender did not guarantee survival, she concocted a plan in which she and her greatest warriors would be reborn as new lifeforms in order to enact their revenge on the conqueror. Drinking a poisoned share of cursed wine, her soul attached to the newborn Ava, who was a much weaker lifeform than she hoped for.Still hoping to take revenge, Wrathia attempted to convince Ava to make a pact. However, since Ava was only a child, she did not understand. Wrathia saw herself as trapped in a useless body, so she tried to get Ava to commit suicide. By this time, she could not, as she had little power over Ava. Wrathia constantly tormented and belittled her instead. She often took control of her body for brief periods of time, causing Ava's random and violent outbursts.
After Odin's ship crashes, Ava confesses to Wrathia that she is glad that her death was not caused "by one of Wrathia's crazy suicides". Enraged, Wrathia berates her. She is able to explain for the first time to Ava that she has unfinished business and reveals her name. She tells Ava of her previous life and intentions. For her, the last fifteen years had been like being in prison. Considering this and her own imminent demise, Ava is more open to hearing about Wrathia's pact. This is the second part of the curse, in which the soul and new lifeform put their powers together in order to fulfill each of their deepest desires. Ava agrees and the pair of souls combine.
After this, Wrathia no longer exists around Ava, as they are the same person. Instead, Wrathia lives inside Ava's mind, which she starts decorating. Ava meets her there, and Wrathia reveals to her that if they fail to complete their pact, they will combine forever, turning into a "monster of failure". She also claims that she brought Ava back from the dead, meaning Ava's desire of having a new life is fulfilled, and that their pact is halfway complete. When Ava explodes with anger and threatens to fail the pact if Wrathia doesn't give her a different life, Wrathia agrees to do so after they kill TITAN. Wrathia gives Ava her heart as collateral, and turns it into a key, which sits in Ava's chest. This, in turn, created a drawer in Ava's chest that the key unlocks, which allows objects to pass through the physical world into Ava's mind and vice versa.
Wrathia gives Ava a book of her plans, filled with hints of how to gather her warriors in order to kill TITAN. Inside the book, she gives Ava the Limbo Lenses, which make the wearer capable of seeing spirits and ghosts in the limbo realm, thus allowing Ava to be able to identify other demons. She also produces vials inside the book and tells Ava that just drinking one will make her powerful and that the effects of one will be enough for her lifetime. She also hints that her memory of her life prior to becoming a demon has gaps, although tells Ava that all of her warriors adored her. Before Ava severs their connection, Wrathia warns Ava that losing her heart key will have dire consequences.
When Wrathia next talks to Ava, she discovers that Ava has found one of her warriors, Tuls Tenebrose. She is disappointed and tells Ava that getting Tuls to join would be useless, and that to do so would be more of a back-up plan.
When on the TITAN HQ planet with Odin, Ava stands close to Pedri who is in demon form. Wrathia smells him from inside Ava's mind and gets ready to see him, wearing new clothes and applying makeup. She is then called by Ava from inside the Gate to Paradise, who is having an anxiety attack and asks for Wrathia's help. Wrathia gets angry, claiming that she has already provided Ava with help, and presents her one of her vials. Wrathia is pleased when Ava finally drinks it, and channels her anger through Ava, their souls merging into their pact form. In this form, she kills Prudith Loone and destroys the Gate. She attacks Strategos Six, takes control of the room, and closes all the doors. She summons a large battleaxe to fight.
- Michelle Czajkowski has said she would imagine Wrathia sounding like Tilda Swinton.
- Wrathia does not feel remorse for her actions against Ava.
- Wrathia is confirmed to have caused the scars on Ava's arms through failed attempts on her life.
- Her favorite animal is the dragonfly, which is likely why Pedri creates dragonfly illusions for her.
- Many people assume that the cursed wine kills upon consumption, as observed in Wrathia's case; this is untrue. Wrathia and Pedri poisoned their wine specifically. Un-poisoned, the wine would stay in the drinker's system until their eventual death, however long that took.
