Those who wander into Felicitas' territory by accident would be wise to return from whence they came. She and her subjects have yet to encounter a foe mightier than they. The ruined city they inhabit represents how mankind is but a temporary blight upon nature, which gives them confidence unmatched. Neither words nor tribute will earn their mercy.
Felicitas is an English, Italian, and German feminine name of Latin origin; the meaning is "lucky, happy, successful". It is derived from the word felix which is of the meaning "lucky, fortunate, fruitful, blessed, happy"; in its religious sense, felix means "blessed, under the protection or favour of the gods; happy." A variant of Dutch, English, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Romanian, Scandinavian, and Spanish Felicia and English Felicity, derived from felicity; felicitas which means "fertility, fortune" with the same root; masculine form is Felix "lucky, happy, successful".
In Roman mythology the goddess Felicitas was the personification of good luck. In ancient Roman culture, felicitas is a condition of divinely inspired productivity, blessedness, or happiness. Felicitas could encompass both a woman's fertility, and a general's luck or good fortune. Felicitas may be translated as "good luck, fortune" and always had a positive significance.
