Oriana is Haycroft’s daughter. She was attracted to the Holy Land of the Sea Devils after consuming Paradise Pieces. She’s part of the Paradise story.

Background[]

Oriana is the daughter of Haycroft, a famous rich man in the Latham Archipelago. Her lover was Dean, a fisherman who was looking forward to ask Oriana in marriage. He was after money to buy his own fishing boat. Dean decided to search for the sea devils’ treasure, the same treasure rumored to be the original source of Haycroft’s fortune. Oriana found the map pointing to the treasure’s location at her father’s study and gave it to Dean. However, the location shown in the map is a cave filled with poison gas. Dean had a tragical death about two years before the main events of Paradise.

Half a month before the main events of Paradise, Oriana left her father’s house in search of a paradise where all the wishes are fulfilled and people live a happy life. She believed that the paradise created by the Book of Paradise and the Holy Land of the Sea Devils are the same place. She bought Paradise Pieces and a pipe for its consumption at the Driftwood Pavilion bar. The Paradise Pieces allowed her to experience once again the happy moments she had with Dean. As it happens with all those addicted to the Paradise Pieces, Oriana was attracted to the Holy Land of the Sea Devils. There, her body was petrified to serve as power for the Phantom Book. Those who searched for her never returned. Oriana has a locket with her photograph.[1]

Personality[]

According to Haycroft, his daughter is naive. She loves Dean and she blames herself for his death.[1]

Appearance[]

Oriana is sixteen years old. She’s a beautiful fragile girl with snow-white skin and flaxen hair. She has no resemblance to Haycroft. Oriana wears an expensive dress.[1]

Plot[]

Inside an illusion, Oriana appears barefoot, her skin white from the cold, walking through a cave, wearing only a wet, expensive dress. She walks forward with confidence, as if someone is calling her. She finds Dean at a white beach. Oriana runs and jumps on his chest. She cries tears of happiness. She closes her eyes and listens to the waves and a beautiful voice reading a foreign book. Oriana is enveloped in a rainbow glow. She falls into darkness.

Haycroft calls for a Book Burning Officer to find his missing daughter. Oriana supposedly left home to search for the Holy Land of the Sea Devils. The place is believed to be a paradise created by the Book of Paradise. Haycroft’s subordinates who searched for the girl never returned. Hal is only interested in destroying the Phantom Book, but with luck he may also find Oriana. Haycroft gives him a box with Oriana’s possessions. Flamberge looks at Oriana’s photograph inside a locket. Hal examines Oriana’s strange pipe.

Hal meets Lucrece. The woman seems to recognize the pipe in his hand. She tells Hal to check a bar called Driftwood Pavilion. There, Hal interrogates the owner, who recognizes Oriana from the photograph. Oriana had bought the pipe from the owner. It’s revealed that the pipe is used to consume Paradise Pieces, a substance which allows people to experience their happy moments once again. Those addicted to the Paradise Pieces are attracted to the Holy Land of the Sea Devils. Oriana used Paradise Pieces because she blames herself for her lover’s death. Dean was after money to buy a fishing ship and ask Oriana’s hand in marriage. He was looking for the sea devils’ treasure, the same treasure which made Haycroft rich, as rumors say. Inside her father’s study, Oriana found a map pointing to the location and gave it to Dean. However, the latter found only a cave filled with poison gas. Finally, the owner tells Hal the location of the Holy Land of the Sea Devils.

Bonnie sails to the Holy Land of the Sea Devils with Hal, Flamberge and Lucrece. There, inside a mysterious cave, it’s revealed that the Book of Paradise attracts innocent people with the Paradise Pieces. The victims’ bodies are preserved inside stalactites and used as power for the Phantom Book. Hal uses his staff to destroy the stalactites, the Phantom Book and its user. Oriana is among the survivors. She’s weak, but she didn’t suffer physically or emotionally. She forgot everything that happened inside the cave, as if she just had a long dream. She went aboard Bonnie’s ship and returned to the main island of the Latham Archipelago.[1]
