Kresnik-concept

Kresnik's most current design, originating from Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner

Kresnik (クルースニク?) is a demon in the series.

HistoryEdit

Slovenia. A shaman who transformed into a white-coated animal to fight the Kudlak. In Croatian and Slovenian lore, a person born with a caul was destined to become either a Kudlak or a Kresnik. A person so destined to become a Kudlak would already begin a career of evil while still alive - his soul would leave his body at night in animal form and fly through the air to attack people or to magically do other harm to the community he lived in. When he died, he became an undead vampire who was then an even greater threat to the community. But if a person born with a caul became a Kresnik, he became a champion of the community. While he lived, his soul left his body in animal form at night to fight against both living and undead Kudlaks.

Where the kresnik was the representative of goodness and light, the kudlak symbolized evil and darkness.

Kresnik is also the name of the Slovenian storm god, believed to be cognate with the Russian Perun. The precise connection between this figure and the vampire hunter is unknown.

AppearancesEdit

ProfileEdit

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

Kresnik acts as one of the five demons that controls the Pentalpha system. Players can align with him to fight against mobs representing the other demons within the system. Those fighting against him will face waves of demons belonging to the Fairy, Dragon King, and Beast races.

By acquiring enough power for him, players can obtain the ability to fuse him in a special fusion of Cu Chulainn and Unicorn.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange JourneyEdit

Alongside Kudlak he appears in Sector Delphinus as a NPC. He has a role in EX Missions given by him and his archenemy. He requests the Hawthorn spear for the final fight against Kudlak. After receiving their weapons the two will go to the far north of the 1st Floor to battle. If his mission is done then he will inflict great harm to Kudlak, who will retreat. If Kudlak has the Pest Crop he will poison Kresnik, who retreats. If they both have the weapons it will end in a draw.

Devil Summoner: Soul HackersEdit

TriviaEdit

  • His appearances and dialogue often revolve around his eternal enemy, Kudlak. To contrast his rival, he usually has a benevolent and noble personality acting as something of a white knight. He also has opposing resistances, being weak to ice yet often strong against fire attacks.
