The Goddess Clan is one of the five major races in the world.


Three thousand years ago, the Goddess Clan constantly clashed with the Demon Clan. However, the two were largely evenly matched and thus a tentative balance was created.[1] At some point in time, they broke a treaty with the Demon Clan, and even slaughtered many women and children they were holding as prisoners of war.[2]

However, when Meliodas had betrayed his own people for Elizabeth and severely crippled their strength by killing two members of the Ten Commandments, the goddesses seized the opportunity to strike and instigated the Giant Clan, Fairy Clan and humans against them, starting the great war.

As a result, the Demon Clan was ultimately defeated by the Goddess Clan and their allied clans and sealed away in the Coffin of Eternal Darkness for many years until the present day with Hendrickson unleashing the Ten Commandments after incompletely breaking the seal.

Despite their victory they lost much of their power and the ability to maintain their physical forms in order to seal the Demon Clan. The souls of the Goddess Clan came to inhabit within objects, only being able to manifest themselves in the physical world taking the body of another being as a vessel.

Similar to the Demon Clan's Ten Commandments, the Goddess Clan has the "Four Archangels", and according to Monspeet, even the Ten Commandments must be wary of them.


They are angelic beings with prominent wings. As their name suggests, they are primarily female although males do exist among them, such as Ludociel, Tarmiel, Sariel, and Mael of the Four Archangels.

Physiology Edit

The Goddess Clan, as the name suggest, appears to be mostly of females. Only a few males have been seen so far. They appear human except with angelic wings and higher ranking Goddesses are distinguished by their multiple pairs of wings. The stronger the Goddess, the more pairs of wings they have and the larger is the size of those wings.

Whenever a Goddess inhabits a physical vessel or whenever they use their powers, their eyes manifest the symbol of a triskele, similar to the one appearing in Elizabeth's eyes.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

The Goddess Clan is an extremely powerful race able to stand on equal ground with the Demon Clan, although it required the cooperation of the fairies, giants, and humans to seal them away. Despite their power, they needed physical forms to actually affect the world by their actions. Members of the Goddess Clan share several common abilities:

  • Healing: The Druids who worship the goddesses, channel their power to heal. This healing power has the opposite effect on demons, hurting them and repelling their power although it didn't affect Meliodas for some reason.
  • Flight: Given the nature of their wings befitting them of angelic appearances, this allows the Goddesses to fly.
  • Resurrection: Ban sought out the Goddesses to resurrect Elaine, believing that something like that should be easy for them. They do say that resurrection is an easy task, but it has yet to be shown if they were actually being honest.
  • Possession: With the consent or forming a pact with another being, Goddesses are able to take their bodies as vessels and use them as their own, being able to use all his abilities through his vessel. However, the vessel, especially humans, may have difficulty hosting high-ranking Goddess, leading their bodies to undergo transformations.
  • Ark聖櫃 (アーク)  Seiki (Āku); literally meaning "Holy Chest"」: An archetypal magic technique of the Goddess clan that counteracts darkness by disintegrating it with light particles. The target is enveloped in a dazzling sphere of light that breaks apart their body.[3]
  • Purge浄化 (パージ)  Jōka (Pāji); literally meaning "Purify"」: A technique that erases "abominable" souls, such as vampires and demons. This technique was passed down to the Druids.
  • Time Regression Spell: A spell that allows one to send the soul of another being towards the past. This spell can be taught to members of other races.
  • Invigorate健やかなれ Sukoyakanare」: A technique able to counteract negative effects such as strong poisonous acid. It can also recover health and stamina or clear the mind of a drunken person.[4]
  • Breath of Bless祝福の息吹 (ブレス・オブ・ブレス)  Shukufuku no Ibuki (Buresu Obu Buresu)」: A spell that only a high ranking Goddess could use. The user gathers light in their palm to create some kind of symbol and after blowing it over their desired target, those affected get a magic power boost. The Demon Clan refers to this technique as Cheat Hopeペテンの光 (チートホープ)  Peten no Hikari (Chīto Hōpu); literally "Scam Light"」 because it is also a brainwashing spell that turns the targets into fanatical zealots loyal to the Goddesses with no regard of their injuries and keep on fighting until they're broken and dead.
