Digimon ReArise

The Deva (デーヴァ Dēva?)[1] are a group of twelve Ultimate-level Holy Beast Digimon that are derived from the Buddhist myth of the Twelve Heavenly Generals, deities who protected the Bhaiṣajyaguru. The Twelve Heavenly Generals were eventually conflated with the animals of the Chinese zodiac in Japanese Buddhism, and so the Deva are also representative of those figures. The Deva are followers of the Digimon Sovereigns, and each Sovereign has three Deva subordinates.[2]

The Deva share many similarities beyond their basis. Nearly all of the Deva have three horns and red eyes, and each wears Chinese-styled armor with a red or purple scarf. Each of the Deva wields a signature weapon which is named in Chinese, with the form "Bǎo X" (宝X? lit. "Treasure X"), where "X" is a generic type of weapon. Although the Twelve Heavenly Generals of Buddhist mythology were each armed with a specific weapon, some of these are switched around for the Deva Digimon. For example, the generals Śaṇḍilya and Indra wield a shell and a lance, respectively, while Sandiramon and Indramon wield a lance and a shell, respectively. Finally, each Deva's Special Move is named after one of the Naraka mentioned in the Vishnu Purana, which usually has some relation either to the Deva's zodiac animal or weapon.

Fiction

Digimon Tamers

Using the data of deleted Digimon, the Sovereign created the Deva to be their servants. Lionheart Some time after the "Catalyst" was disguised as Calumon and hidden in the Real World by Azulongmon, Zhuqiaomon sent the Deva to search for the lost entity, as well as to conquer the world of humans he so loathed. They were at first unable to enter the human world, but when Yamaki activated the Juggernaut against the various Digimon invading the town, it unintentionally damaged the boundary between the worlds, creating a warp which allowed nine of the Devas, Mihiramon, Sandiramon, Sinduramon, Pajiramon, Vajramon, Indramon, Makuramon, Kumbhiramon and Vikaralamon, to make their way into the region surrounding Tokyo, causing untold devastation to the city. Eight of the nine Deva were destroyed, but Makuramon manages to discover and abduct Calumon after going undercover disguised as a human child and, with the intervention of his master, he survives and successfully escapes the Real World, returning to the Digital World as the worlds once again stabilize.

To rescue their friend, the Tamers are forced to pursue him to the Digital World, which also brings them into contact with the four surviving Deva. While three of these four, Makuramon, Majiramon and Caturamon, maneuver to bring Calumon to Zhuqiaomon while also eliminating the human threat, Antylamon befriends the human child Suzie Wong and is stripped of her powers as punishment, leading her to become Suzie's partner. Ironically, the conflict between the Tamers and Beelzemon, who had been elevated from Impmon to destroy the humans, claims the lives of the other remaining Deva, leaving the disgraced Lopmon as their only survivor.

The Tamers bring Lopmon with them as a go-between when they enter Zhuqiaomon's palace to retrieve Calumon, but the Sovereign has no intention of releasing their friend. He offers to forgive Lopmon if she comes back to his side, but when she refuses, he attempts to slay her and the battle begins in earnest. No Mon is an Island

Though at first reluctant, Impmon finally agrees, and Caturamon brings him to the Digital World. Zhuqiaomon gives him the power to digivolve to Beelzemon. Motorcycle Madness After Beelzemon defeats Infermon, Caturamon requests him to fulfill his end of the bargain. When Beelzemon is forced to leave the battlefield, he then makes himself known to the Tamers, destroying Taomon's barrier and kidnapping Calumon. The Imperfect Storm

After returning Calumon, Caturamon is then ordered by Zhuqiaomon to deal with the traitorous Antylamon. Lionheart While Gallantmon and Beelzemon clash, he attempts to take out Lopmon, but Terriermon takes the blow and sustains a lasting injury. Before Caturamon can do anymore harm, Gallantmon appears and effortlessly destroys him as the Deva gives its last acclamations to the Sovereign, but lacking any sentiment for his benefactor, Beelzemon loads Caturamon's data while gloating over his execution.

Because the attacks of the Tamers' Digimon at their Champion level have no effect on Vikaralamon, they digivolve to their Ultimate level and thus Rapidmon, Taomon and WarGrowlmon engage again in battle against him. However, being one of the strongest Devas, Vikaralamon's attacks bring great problems upon the three Digimon, especially WarGrowlmon, who is trapped under an energy ball for most of the fight.

In the past, when a large amount of Digital Points opened up in the Digital World, bringing a large amount of Spiral, the Deva and Four Holy Beasts used the power of the Four Holy Beasts' DigiCores to open a distortion to attract all the Spiral into the same place so that they could deal with them all at the same time. Once all the Spiral arrived in the same place, they used the distortion to send them all to the Dark Area which was enough to get rid of all the Sprial for a long period of time.

Keito's Decisive Fighting Spirit!

When the Tamers were suddenly summoned to the Digital World the Deva were surprised at their power and asked them for help, though weren't very happy about needing the assistance of such "pitiful creatures". They decided they would use the Tamers for their own goals and would put up with it as long as they were useful, although Kumbhiramon had decided to believe in them after its encounter with Keito Tamada and Elecmon. Keito's Decisive Fighting Spirit! Vajramon and Pajiramon also end up trusting the humans enough to use one of the DigiCores to help Chirinmon digivolve to Mitamamon though Vajramon insists it was just "returning the favor" for saving them from Machinedramon.

Vikaralamon is one of the Deva that do not trust the Humans, which leads Kumbhiramon, Vajramon, and Pajiramon to ask the group to fight the other Deva to try and gain their trust. The Protagonist, Herissmon, Michi Shinjo, and Salamon find it fighting a group of Spiral in a Digital Point as according to Kumbhiramon, Vikaralamon thought that if it defeated as many Spiral as it could, the World would be saved - despite this obviously not being the case. After it clears out all the Spiral in the Digital Point Vikaralamon suddenly attacks the group without warning though is defeated by Rasenmon and Angewomon. Having been defeated, it agrees to trust the Humans and leaves to join the other Human supporting Deva.

Having saved the Digital World from the Spiral in the past alongside the Four Holy Beasts, Vajramon is confused as to why they had started spawning again. It argues with Vajramon over why it had happened, though Xuanwumon stops their argument and informs them that the Four Holy Beasts had decided to slumber to restore stability to the Digital World as the Spiral's arrival had tampered with it. Kumbhiramon is against this idea though is forced to go along with it and is given some of Xuanwumon's DigiCores to help deal with the situation. Keito's Decisive Fighting Spirit!

After learning that Keito and Elecmon had been defeating Spiral in the Real World it decided to test them and see if they had been "guided" to the Digital World, splits itself into three, and fights the duo to see what they could bring to the Digital World. Stranded in the Digital World?!

Kumbhiramon then secretly watches as Keito and GrapLeomon fight a group of Spiral that attacked a Gotsumon village. Kumbhiramon is surprised by their power though eventually notices that they will not be able to defeat them all on their own. Out of the sight of Keito and GrapLeomon - Kumbhiramon defeats some of the Spiral, the duo unaware as Kumbhiramon and the Spiral were blocked from sight by the village's buildings. Although he didn't notice Kumbhiramon - Keito finds the situation unusual as he was certain he had seen a group of Spiral about to attack them from behind the building. As Keito's friends arrive Kumbhiramon is surprised to see them with Mon and Hackmon, confused as to why they would get the help of humans.

After the group leave the village it is suddenly attacked again by another group of Spiral. Kumbhiramon fights them on its own, but its Krimisa attack has no effect on a Spiral-4036Y due to it being too powerful. The Spiral destroys all the Kumbhiramon clones but just as it is about to destroy Kumbhiramon's real body Keito and GrapLeomon arrive. Stefilmon had sensed that more Spiral had spawned there, causing the group to split up, and the duo had decided to return to the village. GrapLeomon teams up with Kumbhiramon and helps it fight the Spiral, though they aren't able to damage it. As they fight the Spiral, Kumbhiramon struggles to understand why they would help it, and Keito states that they will fight to protect Digimon even if they are scared. Kumbhiramon is touched by Keito and GrapLeomon's resolve and decides to believe in them. It gives them one of the DigiCores it had been entrusted with, which causes GrapLeomon to digivolve to HeavyLeomon. HeavyLeomon defeats the Spiral and reverts back to Elecmon, however there were still more Spiral remaining. Angewomon and Michi suddenly arrive and defeat the remaining Spiral, as she had chased after them not wanting them to fight on their own. Kumbhiramon thanks them for their help and asks them to help them defend the Digital World when the time comes and then leaves, no longer distrustful of humans. Keito's Decisive Fighting Spirit!

Kumbhiramon later helps HeavyLeomon, Rasenmon, SaviorHuckmon, PrinceMamemon, ShogunGekomon, and TigerVespamon fight the Spiral that had attacked Primary Village, though lets the group know it does not trust Rasenmon's powers as they involve the Spiral. A One-Track Mind! Kazuma Joins the Party

Kumbhiramon officially asks the group to help deal with the Spiral and the Digital Points, which the group accept, though Vajramon refuses to accept help from the humans and instead demands a rematch with Chirinmon. Kudamon accepts the battle, digivolves to Chirinmon, defeats Vajramon, and finally gains its trust. Pajijramon then states that they gained its trust as well as it trusts Vajramon's judgement. The three Deva then ask the Tamers to fight the other members of the group to gain their trust as well.

With some of them once again distrusting humans due to this, the group promise they would find Takumi and Gaiomon and deal with them. Deva Training! A Battle to Remeber!

When a large amount of Digital Points open in the Real World, Keito finds it weird and tries to find out why it was happening though has no luck.

As the two Deva continue to fight Chirinmon they tell it to prove that it is strong and to gain their trust by fighting them. As the fight continues they acknowledge that Chirinmon is strong however as the fight halts the two Deva are suddenly attacked and defeated by Machinedramon.

The three Deva then ask the Tamers to fight the other members of the group to gain their trust as well. After the group manage to gain the trust of Vikaralamon, Mihiramon, Majiramon, and Sinduramon – Pajiramon is delighted the group were able to expand their group of human supporting allies, though is worried at the fact that Takumi Hiiragi and Gaiomon had beaten up Sinduramon and stolen its DigiCore by force. With some of them once again distrusting humans due to this, the group promise they would find Takumi and Gaiomon and deal with them. Deva Training! A Battle to Remeber!

Majiramon

Majiramon ra.png

Majiramon is one of the Deva that do not trust the Humans, which leads Kumbhiramon, Vajramon, and Pajiramon to ask the group to fight the other Deva to try and gain their trust. Keito Tamada and Elecmon eventually manage to track it down Majiramon, and having learned from Pajiramon that Majiramon doesn't like to lose they try to gain Majiramon's trust another way and use Keito's device to find a Digital Point. HeavyLeomon teams up with Majiramon to defeat all the Spiral and Majiramon agrees to trust the humans, impressed that their power lies in more than just their strength but in their intelligence as well. Deva Training! A Battle to Remember!

When Keito and HeavyLeomon are fighting a VenomMyotismon summoned by GranDracmon, its goal to side-track them so they couldn't look for Michi Shinjo and Angewomon, they are attacked by even more of its minions. As all hope looks lost, Majiramon, Sinduramon, and Kumbhiramon arrive and help fend off the minions, having heard what happened from Mon and Hackmon. Illuminating Light: A Guide to the Rainbow

Mihiramon

Mihiramon is one of the Deva that do not trust the Humans, which leads Kumbhiramon, Vajramon, and Pajiramon to ask the group to fight the other Deva to try and gain their trust. They send Mayu Kohinata and Kudamon to fight Mihiramon as Mihiramon was specifically interested in them having learned that Vajramon gave them a DigiCore and so had wanted to see if they had put said DigiCore to good use. When Mayu and Chirinmon arrive to where Mihiramon was it suddenly attacks them without warning and is impressed they were able to withstand the attack. Chirinmon digivolves to Mitamamon and with Mihiramon finding that is unable to defeat the Mega level Digimon it instead changes it plan and tries to kill Mayu – though Mitamamon defeats it before it can harm her. Mitamamon heals Mihiramon, who is surprised that they would heal with after what it tried to do, and decides to trust in the Humans – deciding that Mitamamon and Mayu's strength were enough to protect the Digital World. Deva Training! A Battle to Remember!

Sinduramon

Sinduramon ra.png

Sinduramon is one of the Deva that do not trust the Humans, which leads Kumbhiramon, Vajramon, and Pajiramon to ask the group to fight the other Deva to try and gain their trust. When Kazuma Natsuyagi and Bearmon are helping Mon and Hackmon fight a group of Spiral whilst the rest of the group are busy convincing the other Deva Bearmon and Kazuma suddenly spot Takumi Hiiragi, who had been missing for a while, and chase after him. Once they catch up they find Gaiomon attacking Sinduramon and Kazuma assumes that Sinduramon must've been evil since Kazuma and Gaiomon were beating it up, but Bearmon points out that that is not the case and that Takumi and Gaiomon were acting scary. Takumi demands that Sinduramon give it the DigiCore it had been entrusted by its master from the Four Holy Beasts, which Sinduramon refuses to do. Just as Gaiomon was about to murder Sinduramoon and take the DigiCore by force Bearmon runs into the fight and attacks Gaiomon, its attacks doing nothing due to the fact that Gaiomon was a Mega. As Kazuma and Bearmon refuse to give up and allow Gaiomon to kill Sinduramon, Bearmon digivolves to Grizzlymon though it still isn't able to do anything to the Mega level Digimon. SaviorHuckmon arrives and saves Grizzlymon from Gaiomon though it tells the entire group to retreat when Gaiomon charges up an attack intended to blow up the area as Takumi no longer cared what happened to anyone as he had managed to retrieve the DigiCore from the defeated Sinduramon, with the group escaping death just in time. Sinudramon then joins the other Human supporting Deva. Deva Training! A Battle to Remember!

Later, when a Digital Point opens up in the Digital World, Caturamon use one of the DigiCores to open a distortion and have all the Spiral go into it to get them out of the Digital World, as it had done so in the past, but the other Deva disagreed with this as they did not have the Four Holy Beasts any more to supress the power of the distortion, making the plan too dangerous. Caturamon still goes ahead with the plan however, with the help of Ophanimon of the Three Archangels, and unable to reach the center of the Digital Point, Sinudramon asks the Tamers to go inside it and stop Caturamon. After they do so, Sinduramon thanks them and Caturamon and Ophanimon apologise for trying to do the plan, realising that the other Deva were right and that it was too dangerous.The duo apologise for what had happened, realising the other Deva were right all along and that the plan was too dangerous to use.

Caturamon

Caturamon ra.png

Caturamon is one of the Deva.

In the past, when a large amount of Digital Points opened up in the Digital World, bringing a large amount of Spiral, the Deva and Four Holy Beasts used the power of the Four Holy Beasts DigiCores to open a distortion to attract all the Spiral into the same place so that they could deal with them all at the same time. Once all the Spiral arrived in the same place, they used the distortion to send them all to the Dark Area which was enough to get rid of all the Sprial for a long period of time.

When Spirals once again flood the Digital World Caturamon tries this plan again, though Sinduramon was against the idea as the distortion causes harm to the Digital World and Real World, and the only reason it had worked last time was due to the Holy Beasts lessening the damage it caused, but this was not an option this time as the Holy Beasts were no longer around to mitigate the effect the distortion would have on the World. Caturamon still went along with the plan however, leading Sinduramon to ask the Tamers to deal with Caturamon due to how dangerous the plan was. Caturamon, realising it still needed help to put its plan into motion enlists the help of Ophanimon of the Three Archangels. With Ophanimon having agreed to Caturamon's plan, it gives another DigiCore to Ophanimon to gain more power, and it travels around clearing out the Digital Points, with Humans noticing its shadow as it clears them out. This causes an urban legend that if you see "the Angel's shadow", you will get good luck, causing many people to try and find the shadow – including Michi Shinjo and Sara Shinkai. The duo are eventually able to find the source of the shadow, learning that it belonged to Ophanimon, though as they see it clearing out the Digital Points Salamon points out that Ophanimon's power was causing the Digital Points to become unstable as they were not used to so much power being used to quell them. As Ophanimon clears them out it gets more and more angry, not understanding why so many kept popping up, whilst losing sense of itself in its aim to protect everyone. As Michi and Sara try to find Ophanimon to stop its angry rampage they come across Caturamon, unaware that Caturamon was currently acting against the other Deva. Having learned that Michi and Sara wanted to stop Ophanimon it attacks them to stop them though eventually realises it is not strong enough to defeat Angewomon and Megadramon so decides instead to stall them long enough until Ophanimon had finished the plan.

Ophanimon suddenly arrives in the Digital Point however, with its rage now at maximum. Having decided that defeating the Spirals wasn't enough, Ophanimon decides that destroying the Human World would solve all their problems, as that is where the source of the Digital Points supposedly came from and Mode Changes to Fallen Mode. It proves too powerful for Angewomon and Megadramon to deal with though they are aided by the sudden arrival of Mon and SaviorHuckmon who had managed to track them due to Keito Tamada's tracking device picking up Michi's signal. The three Ultimate Digimon fight Fallen Mode but still find themselves no match for it and Caturamon reveals in the middle of the fight that Ophanimon had been supressing the distortion using the power of the DigiCore but that it was too much for it to handle, which is why it had suddenly become Fallen Mode, as usually fighting a few enemies wouldn't be enough for it to become Fallen. Realising the error of its ways, Caturamon teams up with the Tamers and is able to take back the DigiCore after using the others as a distraction which is enough to restore Ophanimon to its senses. The duo apologise for what had happened, realising the other Deva were right all along and that the plan was too dangerous to use and agrees to accept help from the Humans.
