|Relationships:||Zerstörer, child bride-to-be|
According to prophecies, the Shaphat (shuh-FAHT; Heb. שָׁפָט "judge" or "He has judged") is a child that a devil-like figure is to one day take to be his bride. Numerous prophecies speak of the Coming of a devil, and when Renard spoke to Dasha Karpushin, he was told that Zerstörer very well could be this devil and that Diana may be the Shaphat. ("Where the Wild Things Were") Dasha was the first person to speak of the prophies regarding the Shaphat. Dasha continued on to say that prophecies foretell that the devil is to have a hundred children with his Shaphat.
Renard said that the term "Shaphat," in the context of the Zerstörer and the prophecies Dasha spoke of, means "child bride." Rosalee mentioned that Shaphat also means something similar to "deliverer" and is from the Bible, in reference to one of the few female prophets, Deborah.
It was confirmed that Diana was the Shaphat when she could sense when Zestörer entered Earth from the Mirror Dimension and immediately became terrified, saying repeatedly that he was coming for her. Diana even later had a nightmare where she envisioned Zerstörer finding her in the hidden bedroom of the Postman's Cabin, and upon waking up, she told Adalind and Renard that he was coming for Kelly too. Diana's fears came true when Zerstörer tracked the stick back to the Postman's Cabin, and she immediately fell under his influence when she was in close proximity to him, suddenly becoming more than willing to accompany Zerstörer and losing all of her feelings of attachment, care, and love for her parents. Only when Zerstörer was defeated did she snap out of this trance, and she could also sense that Zerstörer was dead. ("Zerstörer Shrugged") ("The End")
- The name Shaphat originates from the similar Hebrew verb שפט (shapat), which means "to judge or govern."
- Shaphat has been used in reference to numerous individuals in the Bible, not just the female prophet Deborah, including five male Israelites. In reference to Deborah, however, she is viewed as a prophetess and a judge appointed by God, as well as a deliverer of her people through God, hence why Rosalee states that Shaphat refers to "deliverer" and the female prophet Deborah.
