Temperantia, the Cardinal Virtue of Temperance and Manipulator of Wind, is an enemy boss in Bayonetta, one of the Auditio seeking to recover the left eye of the world and revive Jubileus, The Creator. He is the second Auditio to be encountered and fought in a Boss chapter. His clone, Temperance, appears later to hinder Bayonetta and is fought as a mini-boss on three occasions.

Hierarchy of LagunaEdit

Temperantia, the true embodiment of the Cardinal Virtue of Temperance, is often illustrated as a colossal giant. Its body rising like a castle, Temperantia possesses two tree-like arms; a composed figure said to illustrate the total reverence in which the Laguna are held by the faithful.

When the true power of the virtue of Temperance is laid upon our world, it is said to come as a tornado, capable of swallowing an entire country. Humans are helpless to guess at the impetus behind Divine Will, whether it be anger or happiness, and are left only with prayers and promises of personal temperance if only the heavens should make the storm subside.


The Cardinal Virtue of Temperance and Manipulator of Wind. He is the second Auditio fought in the first game. He is an legless crowned knight with his head on his chest. His arms are attached to his body via an orange light and rotating golden rings. On the end of these arms are four tube-like appendages which act as hands. He confronted Bayonetta at an airbase, surrounded by a colossal tornado. Temperantia proceeded to tell Bayonetta that he was sent to acquire her as a "sacrifice." Bored, Bayonetta merely flung a Fearless angel at the colossal titan, starting the fight. He employed a combination of brute force, high winds, and powerful energies against her, but she proved too agile to be attacked. After weakening his arms connection to his body, she summons Hekatoncheir, a set of demonic hands. The hands then pulls his arms until it was torn from his body. She later summons it again to pummel his face until it compressed to his body. Crippled, the maimed Auditio crashed to the ground, and the demons drag him to the Inferno.
