- "If God and the Devil were playing football--Manon would be the stadium that they played on; he would be the sun that shone down on them."
- —Nancy Downs
Manon is the all-knowing, all-powerful Supreme Deity of the universe. According to Bonnie Daniels, Manon is the true Creator and Sustainer of the universe and also a Divine patron of witchcraft. Manon is the embodiment of Nature, thus He is both a benevolent and malevolent Deity.
Manon gifts Nancy Downs with extraordinary power after she invokes his power; however, according to Sarah Bailey, who also invoked Manon, he is displeased with Nancy for abusing her gifts and intends to punish her.
- Manon is not a real deity, but he based on numerous Pagan deities.
- The reason the producers of the film created a fake deity is because Pat Devin, the on-set technical advisor, said it would be dangerous to use a real deity because the cultural impact of the film would cause teens to run out to beaches and invoke an actual deity, which could be rather dangerous.
