** Plus, did you really think they'd stand a chance against [[OneManArmy The Legendary]] [[RedBaron Dark Knight]] [[BigGood Sparda]]? Dealing with one powerful demon God is bad enough, but two, the angels would have been lambs to the slaughter. Though it does raise a fair point. How come the angels never bothered going after Dante and Vergil when their parents died? You would think they would get a jump on that when the twins were kids or teenagers . Probably the same as the first reason.

Dealing with one a powerful demon God is bad enough, enough (one who is the equivalent of {{Satan}}), but two, the angels would have been lambs to the slaughter. Though it does raise a fair similar point. How come the angels never bothered going after Dante and Vergil Vergil when their parents died?

'''WHERE IN THE EVERLOVING FUCK WERE THE ANGELS WHEN MUNDUS WAS ATTACKING EARTH AND SPARDA TURNED TRAITOR?!''' Or did the Umbra Witches and Lumen Sages only come later?

*Presumably not giving a crap and just focusing on ways to resurrect their god. They do seem kind of leaderless and single minded about it.

[[So, this game is a continuation of Devil May Cry? Well that raises some questions!]]

Okay, according to hints dropped in the game, such as how Eva created the Bangle of Time and was an Umbra Witch pledged to Sparda as well as how Enzo is apparently one of Dante's contacts plus the fact that Bayonetta's spider summon is the same species as Phantom, this game is unofficially set in the same world as Devil May Cry. So, just for a moment, let's assume that's true. Okay? Okay...

** You're right. The witches and the Sages can't procreate together, HOWEVER there isn't anything in their rules that say that a Witch/Sage can't intermingle with regular humans....

[[WMG: How did the clans survive in the first place?]]
* While it is mentioned that an Umbra Witch and a Lumen sage must never have a child together, how did the clans procreate? Not a single male Umbra Witch or a female Lumen Sage is ever mentioned. It's like both clans are a OneGenderRace.

** That's the idea! [[FridgeBrilliance The angel names are ironic!]] The Joys aren't very joyful either, for example.

** Two things. First Bayonetta and Jeanne are terrible examples to go by. One is a super powerful half breed and the other is implied to be a natural genius. They are in a class all their own. Judging from what we see from Cheshire and the fact that in nearly every fantasy setting ever humanity just goes down hill power wise after the Middle Ages my suspicion is you'd still be out of your league going one on one a group of heroes or an angry mob was probably a legit threat to a witch. It's also possible that all you had to do was find a witch and pray. Nothing seems to imply that Angels and Umbra have ever been anything but enemies and I can easily see even Joy being too much for an average witch.

***One thing to note: Bayonetta is not a "half breed" as the powers of witches and sages are not passed on genetically.

** Bayonetta 2 indicates that Paradiso launched a full scale invasion of Vigrid with all four Virtues in attendance. Presumably the angry mobs just finished off the weakened survivors.
