Everyone know's Fiend Mother Harlot, correct?

Who here knows the truth of the beast she sits upon? What is it?

If you can answer this, maybe you would also know which demon/character represents it's partner in crime?

The beast she sits on is the beast mentioned in Revelation.

Revelation 13:1

"And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy."

If you count them in-game, the beast has seven heads and ten horns.

The woman that sits on the beast is the Whore of Babylon. Don't remember exactly what she did in Revelation.

Close, but no. My other statement about a "partner in crime" shows that i'm not looking for the Babylonian reference, but it's interpretation...

Whoops missed the first line (hungry...) Yes, it's the beast from Revelations. :P

Now, could you take it to the next step and point out the False Prophet? :3

Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
Rev 13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
Rev 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
Rev 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

Cannot say that directly points to anyone in the game. Possibly Hikawa, but I'd love to hear your interpretation.

It's hard to say as there are a lot of prophet types in the game, and in the texts. My best guess was Futomimi. But, then again I think I don't really think that one is represented in the game as is...

Now that I think about it, if you go for TDE Hitoshura might be the False Prophet.

"Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."

He doesn't have horns obviously, but his appearance is nevertheless strikingly different.

Rev 13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

Hito controls multiple demons throughout the game, including the Beast.

Rev 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

While he doesn't strictly make fire rain from heavens, he can among other things learn to heal people, make lightning strike and shrug off grievous wounds.

The only thing that he doesn't do is leading other people like the biblical False Prophet did.
"For I shall be your companion... Your provider... And, your master!"

He does that in the TDE ending actually...
