- "I don't mind if you betray me. It's natural for men and women to betray each other. ...However. A betrayal of our Order is the one thing I will not forgive. That is our code."

Seshat (セシャト Seshato) is a character appearing in Ciconia no Naku Koro ni.
Area of Origin Unknown
Her true identity is completely unknown. However, she seems to be the leader-or at least a high-ranking member-of some secret chivalric order. It's unsure whether her unique appearance and outfit are real, or just part of her avatar.
Seshat has brown skin and black hair in a hime cut. She wears an Egyptian-styled bikini top and jewelry, and a pair of blue jeans. She seems to own a white coat, but never wears it and instead slings it over her shoulder. Her Gauntlet is also Egyptian-styled, mostly gold with red, dark blue, and cyan coloring.

Direct 8MS Manipulation (SSS)
By using a tablet, she can give direct orders to the 8MS. With humanity's current technology, interference with 8MS supposedly requires massive facilities and preparation, making this ability inexplicable and incomprehensible.
It's possible for her to hide her existence from all records. In the highly-monitored A3W world, erasing all traces of a person from all recording mediums is thought to be nearly impossible, but this inexplicable, incomprehensible technique makes it possible.
Role in the Story
Seshat is first introduced in Chapter 1 talking to Toujirou.
In Chapter 12, Seshat heads to an airport to investigate her subordinate Mr. Gray, who attempts to warn a high-ranking LATO officer of the Three Kings' plans. Seshat "passes judgment" onto Gray and then erases the memories of everyone in the room, including Valentina and Maricarmen. Seshat also erases every trace of her existence in the airport's security system.
Chapter 14 shows that Seshat is working with Toujirou's Order of the Wisteria and using their information collection for her own means. During another conversation with Toujirou in Chapter 18, Seshat learns of Miyao's Order of the Public Bath and thinks they may be troublesome later.
In the epilogue, Seshat heads to an underground facility to wake someone up, needing them to call back "those two."
- In ancient Egyptian mythology, Seshat is the goddess of wisdom, knowledge, and writing.
