Aleda (アリーダ Arīda?) is a minor demoness that first appeared in the original Devilman manga series. She worked together with Jinmen and an unnamed tunnel-like demon to capture and eat defenceless people.

Appearance[]

Similar to Illuge, Aleda could easily pass as human when clothed, her attire of choice being a large fur coat that covered her body.

Removing her coat reveals that her entire midsection is a grotesque face, with eyes on her breasts, a large nose, a mouth with sharp teeth extending to her crotch area, and gigantic ears forming her shoulders and upper arms. Her hands are long, sharp claws.

Abilities[]

Aleda had long thin claws on her hands to attack with, and the stomach on her mouth could bite and tear into flesh.

History[]

Devilman[]

Aleda was in a plot alongside the sadistic turtle demon Jinmen and a gigantic tunnel demon, in which they would kidnap people on subway trains. As the entire train was devoured by the tunnel demon, Aleda and Jinmen would then set upon the people inside, killing or eating them.

One of these trains was the 16:10 Shinkansen which was carrying the young girl Sachiko, a friend of Akira Fudo. Sachiko notices that they had travelled into the tunnel demon when the tunnels walls start to change. Jinmen comes through disguised as a train conductor and reveals his demon visage. The frightened passengers run to the back of the train, where they run into Aleda dressed in her coat. The people try to get past, but Aleda throws off her coat, revealing her true demonic form.

Devilman Lady[]

Aleda briefly appears in the manga Devilman Lady. After having met with Jun Fudo in the depths of Hell, Akira had a flashback to all the various demons that he had fought over the years during his time as Devilman, before his death. Among the demons was Aleda, standing in a crowd alongside Sirene, Ghelmer, Vervalka, Agwel, Trijask, Wagreb and many more.

Trivia[]

  • Despite her appearance in Akira's flashback in the Devilman Lady manga series, Aleda was never shown meeting or battling against him in the original Devilman manga series. This may be an oversight on the part of Go Nagai, or it may mean a battle occurred between the two off panel.
  • Aleda partially appears on the cover of the seventh volume to Devilman Lady amongst a large crowd of demons.
  • Many of Aleda's appearances have some connection to the turtle demon Jinmen, being his partner in the original Devilman, enemies in Devilman Grimoire and appearing just after one another in Devilman Crybaby.
