DMC3 Jester My name is Jester, and I know a thing or two about this place.

This article is about the Boss. You may be looking for the Devil Arm named after her.

I'll treat you so nicely, you'll never want to leave.

—Nevan to Dante, Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening

Nevan, also called Lightning Witch[2], is one of the demon gatekeepers of Temen-ni-gru sealed away by Sparda. She is a boss in Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening, and is fought during Mission 09, and then again in Mission 18.

In the Devil May Cry HD Collection, the player will achieve the award "Lightning In A Bottle" after defeating her.


Nevan is a Dearg-dul who seduces humans down the dark path to Hell. She fights with a combination of lightning and bats, which defend and attack for her.[3] She has some level of humor, and flirts with Dante, comparing him favorably to Sparda.

In the Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition Concept Art gallery, Nevan had brown hair instead of red hair.


Before Devil May Cry 3Edit

When Sparda sealed away the Temen-ni-gru, he placed Nevan as one of the gatekeepers whose life kept it sealed.

Devil May Cry 3Edit

Dante meets Nevan on his path down to the Lair of Judgement. When he enters the Sunken Opera House, she greets Dante and flirts with him, but after a bit of banter they begin the fight. Dante defeats her, and she relinquishes her soul to Dante as a Devil Arm, the "Nevan".


Devil May Cry 3Edit

Arrow Main article: Mission 9


Nevan is named for Nemain (ネヴァン Nevan?), an Irish goddess who personifies the frenzied havoc of war. Her nature and abode are based on the Leanan sídhe or Dearg-Dul, a type of Irish, vampiric fairy which seduced men with her beauty, and offered them artistic inspiration in exchange for their love, sanity, and lifeforce.
