Cuvier Syndrome | Digital Devil Saga 2 »

A term, named after its "creator", used to refer to the circumstance that led to the sun being blacked out; it is similar in appearance to an eclipse.

Normal humans are dried out into stone in this environment thanks to the data that flows from this "eclipse", but those with the power to transform into demons are immune. As such, normal humans have been driven underground or live within domes that block the data coming from the "eclipse"

Madame Cuvier refers to the situation as an "unfortunate accident" that the Karma Society are responsible for. Their work was initially meant as a warning to those who polluted and otherwise sent the earth closer towards its death.

Cuvier, Margot | Digital Devil Saga 2 »

Margot Cuvier is the head of the Karma Society and a former member of the United Nations. She is also referred to as "Madame".

It is safe to call her the main antagonist of the story. Under the Karma Society, she is responsible for the Cuvier Syndrome and the subsequent division of humans between acceptable and unacceptable.

Acceptable humans are given the power to transform into demons and thus the (hopefully) eventual return to populate the surface of the planet. Unnacceptable humans are kept largely for food purposes.

Additional Information: It is possible this name is based upon the French Naturalist, Georges Cuvier. Cuvier was a notable natural scientist who studied fossils and other forms of natural life.

Fredric Paul’s article touched off a discussion with some colleagues of mine, who agreed that Google abuses has become careless thanks to its “monopoly” with AdSense by (among other things) callously dropping AdSense participants for alleged click fraud without a reasonable appeals policy. A request for an explanation fell on deaf ears, and my colleague was left with the impression that Google “would have been more likely to work with me,” if it weren’t in such a strong position.
