Manga E86 God Hand Complete

Griffith's rebirth as the God Hand angel Femto was foretold by the prophecy.

The revelations say that when the sun dies five times, a red lake will appear to the west of the city with a name both new and old. [...] It is proof that the fifth angel will alight. The angel is the Falcon of Darkness. The master of the sinful black sheep, the king of the blind white sheep. The one who shall call upon the world an age of darkness.
– The prophecy of the Falcon, as recounted by Azan and Farnese[1]

The prophecy of the Falcon is a verse from the scriptures of the Holy See, which foretells Griffith's ascendance and role as the fifth God Hand angel Femto.

The first sentence pertains to the location where the fifth Eclipse takes place: a field west of Wyndham, where a small lake becomes tainted red with the ravaged sacrificial remains of the Band of the Falcon.[2][1] The next three sentences detail the events to come following Griffith's rebirth as Femto of the God Hand,[3] along with his eventual return to the Physical World as master of the apostles and champion of humanity.[4] The final part alludes to the culmination of Femto's preeminence, which, thus far, has brought about the Great Wave of the Astral World and subsequent influx of astral beings, both benign and malign, into the world of man.[5]
