Alphabet Chart

The concept art "Demonic Alphabet Chart" in Bayonetta.

The Demonic Alphabet is a font of the Latin alphabet and Arabic numerals used throughout Bayonetta games for writing decorative text in contexts relating to Umbra Witches and Infernal Demons and on Thule. These letters also appear as decoration without forming anything meaningful on various places.
