Girl from Domremy and Blanca's owner.
A sweetly-dispositioned and precocious child, Jeanne found Blanca at an early age; the two have been inseparable ever since. The entire village of Domremy enjoys her sunny presence.
It appears Jeanne calls Gepetto "Grandpa" merely as a form of endearment.
History & MythologyJoan of Arc
One of the most well-known saints and arguably one of the most beloved, Joan of Arc/Jeanne d'Arc (1412-1431) was the warrior-maiden who lead France to victory against the English. She first began to receive visions around the age of 12, hearing voices she attributed to St. Michael, St. Catherine and St. Margaret. These voices told her to drive the English forces out of France and crown the rightful king of France, Charles the Dauphin.
Her eloquence, conviction and remarkable fortitude in battle was unheard of for a peasant girl; she inspired devotion in her followers and fear and hatred in her enemies. Following her capture at the hands of the English, she stood trial and was declared a witch and heretic, and burned at the stake in Rouen, France (interestingly enough, also the first town that appears in Shadow Hearts). She was canonized on May 16, 1920.
For obvious reasons, Jeanne is not the historical figure; her character, however, is clearly a reference and tribute to the saint.
