"If God and the Devil were playing football, Manon would be the stadium that they played on; He would be the Sun that shone down on them."
—Nancy Downs

Manon is the all-knowing and all-powerful creator of the Universe as well as a divine patron of Witchcraft. Manon is believed to be the embodiment of Nature who represents the primal nature and wildness of humankind. In addition to this, Manon also embodies the benevolence of God and malevolence of Satan, but is superior of them both. Nevertheless, whilst Manon appears to be aware of his Creations, He does not appear interested enough to interfere or intervene with their lives unless He is called upon directly. Even so, Manon will simply bestow power upon those who invoke him and allow for the individual(s) to solve their own problems. However, if the individual(s) abuse the power that is given to them, He might employ another witch to bind them from any further abuse towards others or themselves.


  • Manon is not a real deity, but he is based on numerous Pagan deities.
  • The reason the producers of the film created a fictional deity is because Pat Devin, the on-set technical pagan adviser, said it would be dangerous to use a real deity, because the cultural impact of the film would cause teens to run out to beaches and invoke an actual deity, which could be rather dangerous. In addition, it would be disrespectful to use the name of a real deity.
