赫 is the same Kanji used for “Branded in Red” and “Masquerade the Blazing Dragon”

聖女 is the same Kanji (Holy Maiden/Female Saint) as both “Dogmatika Ecclesia, the Virtuous” and “Incredible Ecclesia, the Virtuous”, as well as “Condemend Maiden” and “St. Joan”

カルテシア looks to be playing on Renatus Cartesius, the Latinized Name of Rene Descartes, the famous philosopher best known for “Cogito, Ergo Sum” (I think, therefore I am) and is one of the founders of modern philosophy. He was also the creator of Analytical Geometry, a field of mathematics that bridged Algebra to Geometry proper. Also, his name came from “The outskirts of town” (Des Quartes) but it can also be taken in Latin as “That which is discarded”

Also, to note, considering her synergy with Despia, she’s likely referencing “Cartesian Theater“.
