|Voiced by:||Lauren Landa|
Venus is the Trinity's restless goddess of space, wielder of the otherworldly Parasite, Abaddon. She grows tired of waiting for Mother's plan and calls upon her unwilling foothold on the outside in a small act of rebellion. Her physical form is deceptive, as the true nature and size of Venus and Abaddon exist beyond the threshold of human comprehension.
She is mentioned in Eliza's Story Mode, when Double accuses the diva of having killed her and Aeon during her reign of terror as Neferu.
The lady is only the central part of a much larger creature. If the rest of her is visible, the observer has already been engulfed. There is no safe place when fighting her as the very fabric of the universe unravels into mouths, claws, and locusts devouring her prey’s flesh from every angle.
Venus’s own body tantalizingly distorts to reveal monstrous elements. Body parts bloom from seemingly nowhere, sometimes releasing swarms of locusts to assault opponents from every angle. She can open holes in space, move and teleport in unexpected ways, or even distort the playfield itself. Even her own attacks may be displaced and modified.
- It is hinted that she is one of the Divine Trinity as she is seen as one of the women pictured in the stained glass of the Divine Trinity's Grand Cathedral.
- The Ab-baddon parasites are named after Abaddon, a demon of destruction from the Book of Revelation in the Holy Bible. This is fitting, as Venus appears to be one of the main villains of the game.
- An angel called Abaddon is shown as the king of an army of locusts, which probably explains that part of Venus.
- It is possible she is named Venus due to her body operating similarly to a Venus Fly Trap.
- Another possibility is that she is named after Venus, the Roman goddess of love.
- Venus was the 30th possible DLC character to be revealed in the Indiegogo campaign, at $600,000.
- It is implied in Eliza's Story Mode that Venus, along with Aeon and Lamia, could once be living people. Or it was just that Eliza's story contains an alternative history where Aeon and Venus were somehow killed, instead of in other versions where they appear to be fine and controlling the world, as they never appeared in the cutscenes of Eliza's story anyways.
