Capella Emerada Lugunica (in Japanese: カペラ・エメラダ・ルグニカ, Kapera Emerada Rugunica) is a major antagonist in the 2014 Japanese dark fantasy light novel series Re:Zero - Starting Life in Another World. She first appeared as one of the main antagonists of the fifth story arc.
Capella Emerada Lugunica was a member of the Witch Cult, an organization dedicated to the reverence of the Witch of Envy. The Cult was led by the Sin Archbishops, a group of individuals who each represented one of the seven deadly sins. Capella was counted amongst the ranks of the Sin Archbishops, personally representing the sin of lust. Capella was said to have the worst personality of the Sin Archbishops, believing that everything in the world existed to love her. Her power, the Authority of Lust, allowed her to manipulate the physical form of herself and other organics, befitting for a woman who wanted everyone in the world to love her. She is also the leader of the Gusteko Assassin Organisation referred to as "Mama" by her subordinates.
Under the direction of the gospel (the religious text that gave orders to Witch Cultists), Capella led an assault on the water gate city Priestella alongside the Archbishop of Wrath Sirius, the Archbishop of Greed Regulus Corneas, and the dual Archbishops of Gluttony Lye Batenkaitos and Roy Alphard. Capella was tasked with retrieving the remains of the Witch of Pride, which had been stored in the city since the Witch's death four centuries prior. Unfortunately for her, a young man named Subaru Natsuki led a resistance against the Witch Cult, driving them out of the city. Of the Sin Archbishops, only Capella and the gluttony brothers made it out, as Greed was killed and Wrath was captured.
Note: Although not directly stated, it is incredibly likely that Princess Emerada Lugunica and the Sin Archbishop of Lust were the same person. As such, information pertaining to the princess will be included in this section of the article.

Emerada Lugunica was a princess of the Kingdom of Lugunica who purportedly died of an illness sometime before the Demi-Human War. Described as beautiful, Emerada had the red eyes and golden hair shared by all members of the royal family. She had a nonconformist viewpoint and was known for her cruelty and general distaste towards others.
Despite her cruelty, Emerada was very intelligent and had excellent intuition. As such, she was considered to have the qualities necessary to become a Lion King. A Lion King was the title of a ruler who had ruled over the Kingdom of Lugunica before the pact was made with the holy dragon Volcanica, meaning they had ruled through sheer competency as opposed to the modern rulers who were maintained due to their bloodline. Emerada was acquainted in some regard with Miklotov McMahon, a governmental official.
Decades after Emerada's apparent death, a new individual was born into the royal line who had the qualities of a Lion King. The boy, Fourier Lugunica, displayed the same intuition his relative Emerada had. One day, Miklotov McMahon, now an old man, talked with the young prince about the Lion Kings of old. When Fourier expressed disbelief that an individual capable of being a Lion King could be born, Miklotov began to reminisce about Emerada before silencing himself.

- Like all of the Sin Archbishops featured in the story, Capella is named after a celestial body. Emerada in particular is named after Capella, the brightest star of the Auriga constellation. In Latin, Capella means "female goat".
