Was the Bar named because of Decim or something? They are spelled same and pronounced in the same way! Is there a relation mentioned?

1 Answer 1


The former owner of Quindecim was 'Quin'

She was then replaced by 'Decim'

Hence, it's definitely not a coincidence that the name of the bar is Quindecim.

As the Wikia article on Quindecim states:

It is likely the arbiters Quin and Decim were named so for working on the fifteenth floor.

There is no evidence of this. One thing is for sure though, Quindecim wasn't named after the arbiters since Quindecim means 15 in Latin and that's the name of the floor the bar is on.

Hence, it's very likely that Quin and Decim were both named after the bar. However, nothing was ever stated in the anime or the movie 'Death Billiards', so we can never truly know.

    Quin- usually means 5 as in quintent, deci- often means ten as in decimal. So it's not that far fetched Dec 22, 2015 at 18:46
