Sword Magic



Ken no Mahō


Holder Magic



Sword Magic (剣の魔法 Ken no Mahō) is a Holder Type Magic used by various mages. Alongside Requip, this is one of the most common magics in existence.


The user starts by channeling Eternano directly into a specially constructed magic blade that causes a chain reaction to the sword, having the blade alter its entire structure until it reaches an unstable form of metal and magic, allowing the person to manipulate it into a solid shape that can also engage the spell that the user wants to use. In some cases, when the person condenses the unstable structure, they often add their own elemental affinity magic, allowing for the user of elemental sword spells to be created through the effective means of the user. During the time after the sword spell is used, the Eternano is immediately ejected from the blade, allowing the instability to cease and transform the blade back to its normal shape. 

There are certain risks to using this magic as it takes much mental focus and incredible magic control in order to allow the blade to be altered in its solid shape, and to be controlled in its unstable form. When the user attempts to make any spell, their hand mest remain on the hilt at all times due to the fact that unless the Eternano is controlled and is kept at a steady flow into the blade, the blade will simply revert back to its normal shape while the Eternano is simply ejected outward. 


Canon Spells

Kurosuke Amcient's Spells

  • Shishi no Unari: Lion's Claw (獅子のうなり:ライオンの爪 Shishi no Unari: Raion no Tsume): Kurosuke's magic sword transforms into a set of iron claws which he wears on his hands. He then delivers a series of slashes to his opponent, these claws can slice through solid rock.

Abaddon Godspell's Spells

  • Scene of a Temporal Moonlight (情景空蝉終景Joukei Utsusemi Tsukikage): He glides to the right, narrowly missing the discharge of lightning from the large reptilian creature. Torrential rain, howling winds, thunder booming in the sky above. Abaddon is at peace. The creature roars gathering more power from the storm, leveling its large horn in his direction. It fires. He charges. The bolt of lightning draws near, he dips low bringing his sword to bear. Lightning ricochet's off the blade, and sparks fly as he shifts the blade upward. The spell is deflected. Angry the creatures unleashes wave after wave of lightning. Anticipation. Exaltation. A smile creeps across his face, arms blurs into action. A cascade of explosions dart the landscape, but the swordsman is unharmed. Temporal and fleeting like the moonlight, this spells primary function is the temporary disruption of magic. This is accomplished by an intricate rune etched into the weapons of a Deathscythe, which as a circuit for magical energy. When magic is channeled into the weapon, it creates a magical dissonance, however the effect is small and temporary, but long enough for a skilled warrior to capitalize on. When used effectively the practitioner is capable of deflecting magic, by using the motion of their swing to redirect and divert the oncoming magical energies composing the offending spell elsewhere. It is highly demanding, as timing is crucial requiring an immense level of precision to execute.

Jason LaHote's Spells

  • Pluvia Laminis (プルビア ラミニス Purubia Raminisu; Latin for Rain of Blades):A sword magic spell where Jason summons a multitude of blades, grouped together as one large spear, and unleash them in an unholy fury. The "rain of blades" created by this technique is enough to kill most targets that are not heavily durable or under some sort of defence.
  • Tactus Pluvia (タクツス プルビア Takutusu Purubia; Latin for Touch Rain): A sword magic spell that is best used in close combat. Jason places Gehaburn to the point where it touches his target, or the weapon he is in stalemate with, and releases a straightforward flurry of blades with speed just under a jet engine. Due to it's speed and point-blank method of release, this spell is almost always lethal.

Zaqiel's Spells

Zaqiel's Spells
Name Description Appearance
Passion (パッション Passhon)

Zaqiel points his sword at his target and it then shoots out at a high speed, it's length extending to a dramatic length. The tip of the blade then swings around and forms a crucifix shape. Strips of the metal then become detached from the blade and bind the target to the cross - in a manner similar to the crucifixion.
