"I, Crisanta in penance, excommunicate you, expel you, execrate you, with the blessing of Our Miracle of the Greatest Pain."
She is seen in front of the gates that lead to Escribar, where she confronts the Penitent One in an effort to stop his journey. When she is defeated, she escapes.
In the comic, she mentions that the goals of her and the Penitent One are "different, opposite, yet complementary," suggesting that she is in direct opposition to the Penitent One's goal. This may give insight into her post-credits scene of ending A when she removes the Mea Culpa from the body of the Penitent One.
Behaviour and Tactics
- Slash: uses the sword to deal damage in front of her, can be parried and dodged.
- follow up: this attack can be followed by a second slash or a parry
- Jump: Jumps backwards gaining space with the Penitent One.
- Plummet: the jump can be followed In mid air by a Plummet attack
- Explosion: The plummet can cause an explosion that enlarge its area of effect
- Parry: A defensive technique. If attacked during the parry, the attack will be blocked and followed by a slash.
- Charge: Disappears and reappears in a corner charging forward at high speed, can be jumped, can be parried
- Air Charge: sometimes the charge comes from the air to the ground, can be dodged, can be jumped, can be parried
Crisanta forces the Penitent One to master both the parry and the dodge. The Slash attack is her signature move and the one used the most. Both parrying and dodging are viable strategies, but the parry, although more difficult to execute, cuts the animation and prevents the follow up.
The parry is easy to spot because the animation lasts for a long time and is easy to see, but it is followed by the regular Slash attack.
Crisanta will enter her second stage after losing between 33-50% of her health, then the red bandages will be removed from her sword, which will glow purple.
The Charge attack is by far her most dangerous technique. It is really fast and deals a great amount of damage. It cannot be parried or dodged through so time jumps wisely, however it can be blocked.

|Defeated||Go on… Purge my soul, bitten by The Miracle.|
|In Mea Culpa Chapel, if defeated without the Apodictic Heart of Mea Culpa equipped||The severed crimson bindings now reveal my agony.
They are uneasy to see you, the architect of sacrilege, here at the end of this bitter, sombre, and desolate path…
His Holiness, our father, awaits you under the marble of his white deambulatory.
He will achieve that which my bandaged sword could not. He will leave you on your knees in the ashes of the holy tree that once burned.
He will lay his merciful hand on your forehead sanctifying the end of your blasphemy.
Leave me alone with these lies, with the chimera, with the delirium of my own pain.
- Her sword seems to be covered by a similar cloth as the one used by Perpetva and Esdras.
- Crisanta appears in the prequel comic Blasphemous: The Kneeling. It is revealed that she participated in the destruction of the Brotherhood of the Silent Sorrow and defeated The Penitent One when he took the Mea Culpa, leaving his body alongside his brothers in the brotherhood's chapel.
- It is revealed as well that she is also a penitent, her vow however forfeited her sight, just like the Penitent One forfeited his voice.
