Forneus as he appears in Shin Megami Tensei

Forneus (フォルネウス, Foruneusu)? is a demon in the series.

HistoryEdit

According to the writings in The Lesser Key of Solomon, Forneus is the thirtieth spirit listed in the Goetia. He is a Great Marquis of Hell with twenty-nine legions under his command, partly comprised of the order of Angels and Thrones, and appears as a sea monster. When summoned, he can make men well-versed in rhetoric, give him a good name, teach him foreign tongues, and make him trusted by friend and foe alike.

AppearancesEdit

ProfileEdit

Shin Megami TenseiEdit

SMT-Forneus
"Origin: Israel. One of the 72 demons of the Goetia. He was one of the Thrones who fell from grace. He appears as a silver sea monster, but can take the form of a human as well. He grants knowledge of various arts and sciences to hims summoner. He can also change the hatred of one's enemies to something like friendship."
Shin Megami Tensei A-Mode DDS Dictionary

Shin Megami Tensei III: NocturneEdit

Forneus is the first boss, fought in the Hospital when the Demi-fiend reaches the exit. Forneus is suggested to be a friend of Decarabia, although there is no given explanation for their friendship. Some suggest that it is because both appear as creatures of the sea, others that it is simply because they are both Marquis of Hell, although this is still only conjecture.

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

Forneus appears regularly in the early story missions as a boss and as support for demons such as Eligor in his boss instance.

Devil Summoner: Soul HackersEdit

Forneus appears in the 3DS remake as a demon unlocked in Nemechi's cat form and can be purchased for 100 D-Souls. He is the earliest demon available with access to Makakaja.

Persona 3Edit

"One of the Goetia's 72 Demons, he appears as a great sea monster. He is linguistically skilled, and a master of rhetoric."
—- Persona 3 Compendium

Forneus can be obtained via fusion, or through Shuffle Time in the second block of Tartarus, Arqa. The special non-mythological relationship with Decarabia is rendered again in this game, in which these two personas are able to perform a combo skill called Best Friends.

Digital Devil Saga: Avatar TunerEdit

Forneus will appear after defeating lone Isoras in the northern tunnels of the Samsara Tunnels.

TriviaEdit

  • Kazuma Kaneko made his design look like a manta ray because the manta ray are sometimes known as "devil fish"; Forneus appears as a sea monster. It also appears to have a human body merged into its back.
