The original Aesir (known as The Overseer and the God of Chaos) is the supernatural being that is frequently mentioned in Bayonetta 2. This version of Aesir is referred to as Lord Aesir by Loki.[2]

Originally, he was the chosen ruler of the human world and watched over the realm from Fimbulventr. Pitying the humans, he granted them free will and even bestoyed his own powers, the Eyes of the World, to the Lumen Sages and Umbra Witches. In doing so however, he split his very soul into two personalities: Loki and Loptr, representing his good and evil side naturally. This also split his powers into the two.[3]

Although the original version of Aesir is not witnessed within the past and present events Bayonetta 2, his evil personality later becomes his complete being.[3]

The Legend of Aesir

"The Legend of Aesir... A legend from the dawn of time.

Nobody knows where the world came from. A struggle caused the Trinity of Realities to be split into three realms: light, darkness, and chaos. Obviously, our world was the one born from chaos. The three worlds all needed rulers. Most of all, ours. And the one that ruled the chaos became known as Aesir. Aesir spent the first eternity quietly looking upon the Earth from his holy mountain. Where we only see reality and make it match our rules of the world, Aesir saw through reality, and those visions became our world. These observations became Aesir's power. Aesir's eyes were truly the eyes that created the world.

However, Aesir pitied the humans for their naivety and lack of free will, so the power he wielded was split into two equal halves and entrusted each to humanity's instincts: the Right Eye of Light, and the Left Eye of Darkness. By dividing the power of the eyes of Aesir, humans gained free will... They could now choose. With control of the Eyes of the World, the eyes that determine destiny, humans could choose their own paths. They awoke to their own identities. Man is but a reed, the most feeble thing in nature, but now we were thinking reeds, and we took our big first step towards grand prosperity.

The inheritors of the eyes of Aesir had been granted the power of creation."

- Luka, telling Bayonetta of Aesir and The Eyes' origin.


Aesir is presented physically in a humanoid form. He has intricate glowing gold markings all over his body that appear in a mystical manner (diamond markings on his right half, and circular markings on his left half) along with his glowing blue skin. His hair is stylized into a pyramid shape, and a glowing Chaos marking is visible on his forehead. While using the power of the Eyes, his left eye glows red and his right eye glows blue.

Whilst lacking any formal attire to speak of, Aesir is adorned with golden frames that form various symbols relating to his power. He also wears large, golden cuffs on both his wrists and ankles and sports a large Chaos symbol that hovers near his back as his wings.


Originally, Aesir contained both the qualities of Loki and Loptr, each being his own personalities prior to his split. Aesir was benevolent and once pitied the humanity and gave them free will and entrusted the Lumen Sages and Umbra Witches his own powers so that they could make the world as they see fit. Consequently, it gave awakening to the evils in which the human world is known for such as hate, betrayal, jealous, etc. In doing so, the result not only gave birth to an evil personality within him. From his evil personality, in which represented some of his intents, he came to regret giving them his powers and to a degree wished to reclaim it.[3]


After the creation of the Trinity of Realities in the dawn of time, Aesir was chosen as the ruler of the World of Chaos, also known as the Human World. Watching over humanity, time, and space across infinite possibilities during his time, he came to later pity humanity for their naivety and lack of free will. He would then grant them free will and bestowed the his Overseer powers to them, in which became known as the Eyes of the World. Because of this however, humanity gave birth to the negative qualities and sins of the world. Not only did this give birth to his own evil, but even split himself into two personalities: Loki and Loptr. Within his evil personality, he came to regret giving away his power and his evil personality sought to reclaim his former power.[3]


The original Aesir held the combined powers and might displayed by Loptr both independently and when he managed to reborn himself into his complete being as well as Loki. Among his powers were the Remembrances of Time, a divine power that allowed him to use time-manipulative powers to capture the "memory" of the environment and return things to their original state among other capabilities.[3]

His true and most reverred of divine powers is that of the Eyes of the World, capable of allowing him to manipulate and control all of reality, see the past, present, and future, see the fate of anyone, and see through "everything".[4] He could also bestow the Eyes of the World to other individuals but at the cost of splitting his very being. He also possessed the power of Nothingness, the power to also erase anything and everything from the world.[5]


  • Aesir is referenced in the first Bayonetta though not by name, regarding explanations about the nature of the Eyes. Temperantia also exclaims that Bayonetta holds "the pride of an overseer" upon their first meeting.


  1. Bayonetta 2 - Hierarch of Laguna entry specifies that he is indeed a supernatural being.
  2. Bayonetta 2 - Loki: "The real power of Lord Aesir, the God of Chaos."
  3. 3.0 3.1 3.2 3.3 3.4 Bayonetta 2
  4. Bayonetta 2 - Journal's Echoes: "These are said to happen when people come into contact with the remnants of memory left behind in this world by God. The God of the human realm had special eyes that could see all existence and happenings across the Earth. They could see the fate of whomever they gazed upon--their present, past and future. Everything."
  5. Bayonetta 2 - Loki:" The real power of Lord Aesir, the God of Chaos, is "nothingness." The power to erase anything and everything from the world. Even the very eyes that created it."
