Beatrice is a Dream Demon in the Wild Arms franchise and the main antagonist of Wild Arms 3. Hailing from the Collective Unconscious in the 25th dimension, her desire is to create a Filgaia in which she can live freely, even if it means destroying the existing Filgaia in order to do so. Beatrice is a being of immense power and represents the ultimate threat to Filgaia at the end of Wild Arms 3, eventually becoming the "Mother" of Nega Filgaia and merging with it to ultimately become the negative side to all there is in existence.
To this end, Beatrice orchestrated the majority of the events in the history for over a hundred years, manipulating others' actions through their dreams, minds and memories even without direct physical intervention with the world.
All made in order to make her dream a reality, Beatrice's machinations were complex enough to involve not only the world restoration project of the past but also the main characters of the story a century later, along with the Prophets and even their leader - a fellow Demon, Siegfried - as well as their supporting factions such as the Ark of Destiny. She promptly disposes of those who serve no further need in her plans - either by setting them up to destroy each other (such as Janus and the Prophets or Siegfried and Virginia's companions) or by twisting their minds as she did with Malik.
Beatrice goes as far as manipulating Shane and Lamium for years by giving them prophetic dreams and turning them into unwitting pawns of her designs, before eventually possessing the former and murdering the latter prior to her final confrontation with Virginia Maxwell and her comrades.
As she gives birth to and becomes Nega Filgaia, merging with it as an extension of her will, Beatrice ultimately ends as the negative counterpart to reality.

Can summon tentacles to aid her as Nega Filgaia), Vibration Manipulation (Via Sediment of the Stix), Power Bestowal and Statistics Amplification (Can grant herself resistances and increase her statistics at the same time), Elemental Manipulation (Of the Earth, Fire, Wind, Water, Ice, Light, Lightning and Darkness variations through the disasters, Arcana Disaster), Limited Resurrection (Nega Filgaia can revive its spawns), Gravity Manipulation, Petrification with the Petrify spell, Attack Reflection (Nega Filgaia can reflect Magic back to its sender), Pocket Reality Manipulation (via the Ars Magna and the Seyfert Microcosm skills), Holy Manipulation (with the Fatima's Miracle spell), Minor Probability Manipulation (via the Luck disaster), Time Rewind (via Reset, which returns the battle to its beginning, also negating statistics amplification), Limited Duplication, Transformation (Transformed herself several times) and Accelerated Development (As Nega Filgaia she rapidly matured and evolved from her embryo state to her ultimate form during the course of the decisive battle), Limited Reactive Evolution (Can become resistant to elemental attacks she suffers), Information Manipulation (Can manipulate the Hyades Information Lybrary which exists in the Horizon), Healing (Critical Heal recovers her for all damage she has taken), Energy Manipulation, Absorption (Can absorb energy and memories from other lifeforms) Immunity to Soul Manipulation (lacks a soul), unconventional resistance to Memory and Mind manipulation (her mind exists on the same level of the Dream World itself and "rules over it", whereas for others she can make it be as a world of eternal darkness deep within their minds)
Attack Potency: Large Planet level (Appropriated the energy of the Yggdrasil System. Far superior to Jet, a human clone of Filgaia with comparable energy to all of the Planet. Far superior to each individual guardian, with just one of them being capable of causing an Eclipse in seconds. Superior to Siegfried who had access to all of the Planet's power with the Teardrop. Created Nega-Filgaia and even prior to merging with it, could grow large enough to hold the Planet in her hands)
Speed: Immeasurable (Can exist, interact with and move in the 25th Dimension. Is also superior to Asgard, who was previously banished beyond the outer limits of space and time but still came back to the conventional continuum without teleportation)
Lifting Strength: Unknown
Striking Strength: Large Planet Class
Durability: Large Planet level (Took attacks from Virginia and her party at the endgame. Gave birth to and merged with Nega Filgaia which was the counterpart to the planet of Filgaia itself. Immortality and the nature of her being make her remarkably hard to kill)
Stamina: Limitless. Before merging with the Life Force of Nega Filgaia as a whole to become the negative side of existence and appropriating the power from several energy generators, Beatrice already outclassed Jet and Siegfried, the former having the same life-force as the planet itself and the latter being capable of channeling a comparable ammount of energy to keep fighting at his best condition for as long as he held the Teardrop.
Range: Hyperversal - after circumventing her limitations, her powers as Nega Filgaia can fully reach and interact with all of reality and the dream world, up to the 25th Dimension. As she became the negative aspect to all of existence, her destruction caused the collapse of all of existence into nothingness along with her and the Dream World itself, leaving only the Horizon - an emulator zone where the concept of memories was all that was left of existence. Can also reach others within dreams, minds, memories or a world of information.
Standard Equipment: None notable
Intelligence: Extraordinary Genius. Manipulated nearly every character in the series, including the Prophets who were capable of producing advanced life-forms and technology with Nanomachines. Is more knowledgeable of the worlds than the Baskars and the Guardians who are the force and manifestations of the planet itself. Controls the disasters who are the counterparts to the guardians. Created Nega Filgaia from memories and her own knowledge. Orchestrated a plan spanning over a century of machinations and manipulations. Fully understands the Information Library of Hyades, which even the Prophets and the Council of Seven couldn't use to full capacity and had memories of all. Knows the method to restore and recreate memories with a thought, an effort that took the Council of Seven (which was composed of the best researchers of science and magical fields in the world) nearly a century to theorize, much less put into practice. Has a better understanding of Ancient Artifacts and energy sources than Siegfried himself, manipulating her felow demon like a puppet as well.
Weaknesses: None notable
