As the title suggests, there are seven key sins. Those who have caused enough evil in their lives and their soul's are condemned to Hell, that soul will suffer for their biggest Sin. Each Sin is connected with a color and an animal. It is this same color that appears on the string that emerges from the fingertips of our souls within the Spirit Realm that signifies our Soulless. This is to say that every Soulless has a specific Sin. curiously enough, like everything in this world, there is a yin to every yang. In this case, there are Seven Heavenly Virtues. To whom these apply, I can not be certain, but if Axel's Theory is correct, then the Seven Heavenly Virtues would apply to the Nobodies as a mirror to the Soulless.
- "Wrath - Inappropriate feelings of hatred and anger. (...)Impatience with the law, or seeking revenge outside of justice, such as with unnecessary vigilantism. Wishing to do evil or harm to others."
Wrath is connected to the color red, as well as orange and black on the off occasion because they are like the colors of fire, which can be seen as wrathful and destructive. The bear is a symbol of wrath, because of their massive appearance and quick temper. Lightening is also seen as a symbol because it is something rapid, unpredictable, and uncontrolable, and sadistic. Other signs include the whip and shattered Earth - the influence Wrath has upon the world. The crime in Hell for Wrath is to be dismembered alive.
The Soulless in correspondence to this Sin is/are: Neo
- "Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body."
Lust is truthfully linked with the color blue, although is more often than not represented by scarlet, or blood red. The cow is a symbol of Lust, very possibly because of the Egyptian goddess Hathor, who is reknowned for being very sexual and is a symbol of fertility and a protecter of women. The waterfall is also seen as a symbol because it is something rapid, unpredictable, and uncontrolable. Lust is actually meant to be seen as being concentrated on yourself, being "drowned in your own world" kind of way, rather than seducting and being "flirty". The crime in Hell for Lust is to be smoothered in fire and burned with brimstone.
The Soulless in correspondence to this Sin is/are: Ayame
- "Gluttony is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires."
Gluttony is linked with the color orange and the pig. Gluttens are not only consumers in the culinary level, as in eating and drinking, but consuming in it's wider meaning, such as buying and gathering useless things. The crime in Hell for Gluttony is to be force-fed rats, toads, and snakes.
The Soulless in correspondence to this Sin is/are:
Also referred to as Greed or Covetousness.
- "Avarice is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual"
Sloth is linked with the color yellow, to represent gold and wealth. The animal closest linked to the Sin is the toad. Those who are greedy are often envious as well, desiring for what others have and tiring of it soon after aquiring said position or item. They can also have tendencies to be megalomaniacs and power-mongers, or greedy in demanding attention, no matter whether it's negative or not. The crime in Hell for Avarice is to be boiled alive in oil. Bear in mind that it's the finest, most luxurious boiling oil that money can buy, but it's still boiling.
The Soulless in correspondence to this Sin is/are: Aseru
-"Envy is the desire for others' traits, status, abilities, or situation"
Envy is linked with the color green, and the dog. Another commonly linked creature is the snake, often seen as one who is cunning and devious, apt to do something behind one's back. Poison ivy is another symbol of envy, not only because if it's horrible itch, but because it represents revenge and destruction. Envious people not only feel jealousy towards others, but spite as well and a drive to act against that person. This means "revenging" in a way, trying to take the "object of our desire" away from them, or backstabbing them in some way. The crime in Hell for Envy is to be put in freezing water.
The Soulless in correspondence to this Sin is/are: Dey
Also referred to as Laziness.
-"Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work"
Sloth is linked with the color light blue, and the goat. Lazy people waste time and procrastinate important issues, often wasting their time on insignificant things. The crime in Hell for Sloth is to be thrown into a pit of snakes.
The Soulless in correspondence to this Sin is/are: Possibly Sao
Also referred to as Pride.
- "Vanity is an excessive belief in one's own abilities, that interferes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise."
Vanity is linked with the color violet. While the animal associated with it is the horse, another linked creature is the peacock, which while beautiful, is often seen as arrogant, preening birds. Vain people usually never see any beauty in the world, but only in themselves, which is why everything around them, sooner or later, dies. The crime in Hell for Vanity is to be broken upon the wheel.
The Soulless in correspondence to this Sin is/are: As of yet, I am unsure of her name, but she is Lynx's Soulless
