Bayonetta is the protagonist of the Bayonetta series. She is an Umbra Witch and one of the last of her kind.
In the first Bayonetta game, she was basically known as "A Witch with No Memories". She appeared in her standard Umbra Witch Outfit with her long hair and wielded her four guns with her hands and feet. These red guns were known as "Scarborough Fair".
In Bayonetta 2, she had a short hair and wore a different and a hair-like Umbra Witch outfit. Her "Scarborough Fair" guns were replaced by her new guns that are colored blue and it was known as "Love is Blue".
500 years ago, Bayonetta was born, and according to the Elder Umbra Witch, she was of impure blood and was kept from the path to the dark arts permanently. A couple of years passed, and the great war between the Lumen Sages and the Umbra Witches took place in Vigrid, a fictional place in Europe. During the war, Bayonetta, along with another Umbra Witch named Jeanne, fought against the angels from Paradiso in the falling Umbra Clock Tower. Soon after, Bayonetta witnessed that her mother, Rosa, was killed. Suddenly, Jeanne stabbed Bayonetta, under her real name "Cereza", in the heart and sealed her in the gem before the war ended.
500 years later, Bayonetta was released from her imprisonment in the gem with no memories at all. During the events of the game, she kept hearing a familiar voice where she was told to awaken the "Eyes of the World". She was fighting and killing the angels, and then she met Jeanne, where they both fought each other in order for Bayonetta to regain her memories in the past.
