Card Trivia

 This card is based on a lesser-known character present in Dante Aligheri's Divine Comedy known as the 'Black Cherub'. In Canto XXVII of the Inferno, the Francisian monk Guido I da Montefeltro recounts how he reluctantly gave advice to Boniface VII, only after Boniface had agreed to absolve him for the sin of his fraudulent counsel. As Guido recounts his story, after his death, St. Francis arrived to claim his soul for the saved, but a black Cherub appeared to assert Hell's superior claim over Guido.
This is the first Burning Abyss Link Monster to be released.
The heads in this monster (ox, lion, eagle and human) may be a reference to the tetramorph.
This card's art borrows from traditional depictions of Cherubs or Cherubim, which typically include four heads: that of a Lion, an Ox, a Bird and a Man. The weapon in Cherubini's left hand has a biblical source as well. The Cherubs sent to guard the Garden of Eden were armed with fiery swords which turned every way This passage also suggests the wildly curving appearance of the sword seen in the card.
