"Oh Saeta, where once its piercing song shattered the mirrors and trinkets in my tomb, let its wail now grant light. Saeta, awakener of the desolate, ignite these five lifeless eyes!"
The Amanecidas of the Miracle are both guardians and a set of bosses summoned by Jibrael. Every Amanecida bested will provide their weapon to the matching statue in Hall of the Dawning. The bosses are similar in appearance, although each has a different arena and different quirk about them.
|See Jibrael on how to summon them and start the quest to best them to begin with.|
To be able to challenge Laudes, the First of the Amanecidas, the other Amanecidas must be first beaten:
- Amanecida of the Golden Blades
- Amanecida of the Bejeweled Arrow
- Amanecida of the Chiselled Steel
- Amanecida of the Molten Thorn
Shortly after the High Wills mischievously fulfilled the wish for punishment of a youngster, turning him into the Twisted One and manifesting the Miraclein Cvstodia, Laudes became a devotee to him. Her immense passion exuded from her body in the form of liquid gold and, by the High Wills' working, became incarnated as four women: four replicas, four reflections of Laudes.
These Five Dawns took upon themselves to guard and parade the Twisted One in public, while he still "lived in a divine prison of pain and piety, supported on and rooted in a tree, between sobs and cracks". Consequently, the Saeta first arose as the procession march which resounded far and wide and announced the Twisted One's presence. It is implied that Jibrael himself played the Saeta during those processions.
After the Twisted One's final passing, the High Wills, jealous of Laudes's passionate devotion and ardour towards him instead of towards them through the Miracle, cursed, condemned, and bound the Five Dawns to their whim and sealed them five, asleep and undead, in five crystal sarcophagi as punishment. Consequently, the Saeta became a force in itself, to be blown from Jibrael's twisted bronze bugle, in order that the Saeta can resound again and awaken the Amanecidas and Laudes up from their slumber whenever the High Wills, which never forget them, needs them again.
|First Encounter||Oh, Saeta. Where once its piercing song shattered the mirrors and trinkets in my tomb, let its wail now grant light. Saeta, awakener of the desolate, ignite these five lifeless eyes!
But only The Miracle giveth. Only The Miracle taketh away.
The fatal bargain that governs my awakening has been struck - I must end the irreverent intention, Penitent One.
And so the long night is severed. Dawn cometh.
|Defeated||My passion, once made gold, now returns to my body.|
Laudes' Amanecida form has five faces, confirmed by her statement "... los ojos de mis cinco rostros muertos" (lit. "... the eyes of my five dead faces") in the original Spanish version. A mistranslation "... these five lifeless eyes" incorrectly implies that her Amanecida form has four faces.
