Glossary 22 by Trexalfa

Multiverse: Concept that references multiple universes existing at the same time. There are several definitions of it, however, the one this concept refers to here is that of "other worlds which might have been possible" which branch off due to the possiblities that emerge from choice. That is, what are usually called parallel universes (parallel worlds).

In order for this to appear, as a premise, it is necessary for everyone to possess a high degree of freedom and free will or, to say it in other words, the universe's way of being must be that of a liberal system. However, in the world of this story, there is a Principle which obstructs it, that is, the conflict in between Good and Evil, absolutely controlled by Avesta. Because this is a universe of puppets in which the majority of people don't even understand why they are fighting, pluralistic expanses have nothing to do with it. In short, because the degree of freedom of choice is extremely low, it perhaps could be said that this is a world in which "ifs" do not happen.

In a future era, a man who'd set out to try every single possible choice, wishing for the unknown, will give birth to the concept of the universe extending to a plurality, but that is also another story.

>> No.25125766

Transcendence (Gudou):
Belief to keep pushing forward, staking everything that makes up one's being, while being devoted to a single desire or ideal. In the story, what Sirius and Kaikhosru extol is Hegemony (Hadou): an attitude to life that sets about to subjugate other people, and to dye them to oneself's colour, that is, a completely antithetical concept to this. That is, the essence of Transcendence is simply "In what way do I want to live?", it is not something that tries to change others or the world.

If Hegemony is said to be the disposition of kings, Transcendence could be said to be the disposition of warriors and craftsmen. An attitude which cares nothing about the course of the world, but simply sets out to carry oneself's path to its ultimate end, earnestly. Its complete/perfect form is, according to Khvarenah's hypothesis, an individual universe condensed into a human form, however, such a thing can't come into existence, unless under the aforementioned Law of parallel universes. The reasoning goes that, once countless different worlds exist, moreover, they exist at the same time, then the apex of Transcendence can too be born, as a different world of extremely small scale.

Therefore, in terms of sequence, Transcendence comes after Hegemony, however, this doesn't speak of their inferiority or superiority, of their strengths and weaknesses. It is simply that laying out the stage is the role of Hegemons.

The above mentioned reasoning acts as a binding for Bahlavan, hindering his growth, however, there yet even more Laws in this story which restrict Transcendents. What the hell those are will, maybe, become clear eventually.

- we start with fight of Magsarion and Bhavana and we finally have info drop on Magsarion's armor, Melek Taus. Among Khavrenah's tools it's not so special and its true identity is Garyoku generator. If Dragvant will have it will boost their power, conversely Ashavan will gain ability they shouldn't have, Garyoku.
Since it's device originally to boost the weak masses it isn't that strong. That's why it has limits. Even though Garyoku can bend reality there's structural limit to what can be achieved.
First is fuel problem. I can't produce something from nothing and it functions by eating emotions. The reason why Ashavan can't use Garoyku is due to their collective nature to live for "everyone". Individuals eroding reality for their own convenience deny this harmony.
Meanwhile, it's impossible for Dragvant to share feelings with others, collect their thoughts and work together to exceed potential of the individual. So their feelings aren't weaker than those of Dragvant and it can be said that their characteristics are similiar. Because ultimately, both factions push through reality with the power of heart and generate supernatural phenomena. Miracles of Ashavan and order disruption of Dragvant are separated by a very thin boundary.
Melek Taus removes that barrier; burns down part of the brain that makes Garyoku inaccessible for Ashavan. But this occurs under equivalent exchange. Whether it's replacement of the front and back of the coin in the case of Ashavan or simple strengthening in the case of Dragvant it has to interfere with the root of the birth.
As a result, those who wear this armor can only obtain short-term power. The central part of the emotions is overheated, causing meaning and concept of the emotions to be lost. At most they can experience one or two large-scale battles, before burning out emotions and turning into empty puppet. With this limited fuel it's impossible to obtain boundless power.
There's only one exception:
- Magsarion. In his heart there is only killing intent, hatred and grudge. Whether his heart already burned out or it was non-existent from the beginning doesn't matter. The only fact is that his anger has not disappeared. Not only that, his powerful emotions surpass standard of the armor. Since Magsarion is already heretic among Ashavan, it's possible he can use Garyoku on his own, that case a booster, Melek Taus, would amplify this power beyond limits. His wrath cannot be absorbed, on the contrary, black abyss of his soul caused armor to change.
If Maou-class Dragvant would use this armor, it would be destroyed unable to withstand super-dense Garyoku. Since it was originally crated for a purpose to support thte weak it cannot be used by powerful being. This's its second limit.
So why does it continue to exist on Magsarion who completely surpasses limits of the armor and made it his slave? Even its creator, Khvarenah, probably doesn't know the truth. Melek Taus who was robbed of its death and changed into zombie. So what is taking from Magsarion? What it uses at its fuel? It's unknown.

>> No.25279133

- Bhavan continues to pummel Magsarion, each attack with power to shatter star, each one connecting with vital points of his body. He stomps on his spine and breaks the crust as easily as cracking an egg. Bhavan is bathed in magma but naturally this does nothing. With characteristic of Bhavan's Commandment, this stomp would wipe out entire star without trace, but Magsarion cannot be considered luckly when all of that power is concentrated on him.
- still, he's fine and launches counterattack at him. But Bhavan catches his sword with two fingers. He wonders how Magsarion could survive all six of his attacks and assumes it's Commandment.
- Bhavan clenches his fist with the power of supernova explosion. Magsarion has no way to avoid it, because Locust King is still holding his sword. The only logical course of action is to let go of his own sword and avoid it. But he doesn't let it go and at the same time he receives Bhavan's fist, he fell down utilizing its momentum to thrown Bhavan using his own sword as a fulcrum. He continues to attack Magsarion while holding his sword but he evades all attacks while still holding his sword which is assaulted by Bhavan's destructive energy. The way he avoids attacks is very similiar to fighting style of Sirius, but unlike him, Magsarion's technique is very distorted and crazy.
- Bhavan once again assumes it's the result of Commandment, power to seize specialized skills at any time. That's because Bhavan has unchanging belief in his power and is neither negligent nor overconfident.
- their tug of war continues and eventually Bhavan's attack work, he slams Magsarion into ground so hard that star rumbles, tsunami occurs and New Continent shatters into pieces. Magsarion is STILL holding his sword. And it really seems to be related to Commandment. His vow is probably to hold your weapon at all times and immediately maintain ready to kill condition.
- Bhavan continues to pummel Magsarion while wholeheartedly telling him to keep fighting, but is suddently cut off and finally let go Magsarion's sword. Even Bhavan is surprised by this, never intending to let go.
- Bhavan looks at his right hand and he's missing two fingers which were holding the sword, blood flowing without end. Bhavan thinks Magsarion used a loophole to cut him, but corrects himself saying he shoved loophole inside him instead. So he came to conclusion that Magsarion's power is to make smth that doesn't exist, see the unseen.

>> No.25279147

- it seems Magsarion's vow is not to keep holding his sword, but to devote all of his actions to killing. If he closes his eyes he will lose sight of the scum (evil), if he will go to sleep his thoughts will pause. He has no time to stop and rest. Not letting go of his sword is just a single element of his true vow - devoting his entire life to killing evil even if it means to abandon basic human activities. If he will continue to remove everything that doesn't help him in any way he will grow faster, stronger and sharper without end.
- Magsarion attacks him again and Bhavan is unable to detect it because his attention is once again diverted and screwed into world. Bhavan barely dodges it, but his cheek is slightly torn. Magsarion can see where to attack enemy which will cause its destruction. Power of his will created 6th sense to the utmost limits. It's a result of extraordinary Commandment that no one but him can imitate - don't eat, don't blink, he doesn't eat and thus, he has no need to excrete. They're all useless. He has no need for love and friends, since he already decided to fight and kill his entire life he burned out everything else. His heart always awakens in response to dark emotions swirling inside it. Eventually, Magsarion grasped infallible breath in the process of mutual killing. The higher his killing intent increases with Saoshyant Ushedar’s conjunction, the more desparate situation he finds himself into, he, as a sword himself, is sharpened as a blade which cuts and destroys creation. Open a gap necessary to slay - embody it through visualization. To kill without being killed, light and shade in the gap of the sky– feel it through bodily sensations and slide into.
- but Bhavan is not impressed, because this way of life is a common sense for Locusts such as him, Tarvi and Zarchie, their fight continues

- we cut to Quinn and Frederica inside Khvarenah. Constituents of his interior are unknown, it resembles crystal, but softness of the rubber. Gravity is a little light and there are hundreds of different components in the atmosphere. Since Quinn and Satsujinki don’t need to breath it’s unknown if it’s poisonous. The temperature reaches 40*Celsius but heat source is unknown. Star effects don’t properly work here. It has marble pattern reminiscent of kaleidoscope, with colors that Quinn doesn’t even know about. They’re constantly swelling , rolling, joining and separating. Although Quinn visited many stars, it’s first time for her to see so many unknown things in a single one. She concludes they’re in the main star of Saurva, Forge of Destruction.
- it seems Magsarion decided to separate from themselves voluntarily.
- Quinn and others travel deeper into Khvarenah until they encounter bizarre structure. It resembles cephalopod upside down, as if countless arms rushing for thread of salvation many big pillars coil and entangle it, the way it grows toward heaven is chaotic, however it has orderliness resembling gears in the watch. Quinn instinctively accepted it’s like a “temple” which symbolizes fusion and reversal of dualism, unsure whether it collapses existing concept (dualism) or plays with it.
- Quinn asks Frederica what Khvarenah’s astral body is like. She doesn’t seem recall his figure because his presence seemed too vivid. This’s related to her Commandment. Because her vow is not evade attacks, there might be some danger in the appearance of Khvarenah itself. In other words, some kind of form or figure which embodies enough information to collapse processing capacity of the receiver. Furthermore, as a phenomenon of emanating without malice, if he can forcibly invade and dye the surroundings then it could be Hadou as well.

>> No.25279167

- Quinn then has talk with Munsarath about Varhram. She asks him why he’s subordinate to Frederica when he was so fascinated by Varhram. He tells her it’s obvious: because he’s Dragvant and seeks lord from the same darkness. But Quinn calls bullshit. Both, Sirius and Magsarion, who saw the end of hero took a part that’s outside of dualism. Current situation that can only be called chaos is derived from Varhram’s death. That’s why she comes to conclusion Munsarath should be affected by him as well.
- here we learn about Munsarath’s second Commandment…or lack thereof. Because it was take away by Varhram’s Saoshyant Desatir. Because of this Munsarath is living now in some kind of “divided state”. Quinn asks him what kind of Commandment it was and he drops the truth bomb, it’s the power to see future few seconds ahead. Quinn wonders what kind of form it would take under Varhram. If it fits new user it will undergo abnormal improvement and evolution depending on the vessel. So she concludes that he knew about his death and accepted it.
- their trip continues…until Khvarenah’s astral body appears. His presence filling everything with a single concept – color, sound, smell and time were all torn apart at the same time. Here we have more “censorship talk” so won’t bother with this for now. Their brains are on the verge of evaporation just from seeing him. He’s described as different savior, guide of foundation searching for lost prayers and forgetting about them. His dazzling appearance like a halo made of collected miracles. Quinn says he can only be described as a root of ■ they usually use. His crimson eyes confining light and darkness deeper than depths of the universe.
- he asks them who they are

Magsarion's 2nd Commandment. In exchange for the binding of "Maintaining a condition in which rapid response to battle is possible at all times", he gets "Sharpening of his 6th sense when it comes to battle" as a boon.

That is, being ready for combat at all times, conducting himself like he's always on the battlefield. This is an ability that, in exchange for not showing absolutely any gaps, allows to see through the enemy's gaps and, if they don't exist, it allows even to forcibly create and shove them in.

If we were to run through all things he's forbidden to do they'd be: sleeping, blinking, eating and drinking, excretion, being unnarmed, and having any thoughts not related to killing.

>> No.25451818

Indeed, through this Commandment, which works to change oneself into an individual lethal weapon, into an infallible fighting machine, one can't even be called "human" anymore. If a common living being would perform this, it is needless to say that they'd experience death from breakdown, however, Magsarion, through his armor's Power of the Ego, is able to preserve himself in a condition in which he's able to keep the above mentioned prohibitions, as well as making his stamina not to deteriorate. However, the pain itself that one ought to bear still exists with no change whatsoever, so this Commandment's wonderful compensation involves going through terrific hardship.

The concept of "shoving gaps into". From the offensive side, eyes which allow to see and materialize moments in which his opponent drops his caution, or perhaps things like points in which his opponent's physique becomes relaxed and flacid, so to speak, to see and materialize points in which killing becomes easier. From the defensive side, being able to detect openings in the enemy's offense, and avoiding direct hits via slipping into them. This too is akin to a natural function of a fighting machine as, for the sake of killing, it mustn't be broken.

All in all, this power to forcibly create "tears" sees its effect increased the more killing intent exists in the area. If lethal weapons show their true worth while in a situation of fighting to the death, then we have no choice but to call it reasonable that it works linked to his first Commandment.

What are your thoughts on the 2nd ending of Rea's Route? I heard people saying it's nothing more than "fanservice" and that Reinhard vs Mercurius is the most fitting end.

Remember that both Rusulka and Wilheim taking Shirou's soul still had Shirou intact enough to eventually come out. For Spinne, that's impossible unless Spinne wanted it.

Just read normal Japanese novels or chuuni LNs, most novels are roughly on par with the difficulty of Masada's prose, his prose isn't that crazy difficult if you are used to reading literary prose.

It's all in keikaku. Zurvan was likely created in such a way so that Shinga would/must hit him with that specific punishment to keep the ball rolling into other eras.

Think of it as an exact loophole procedure they go through to get something past a bureaucratic system(Shinga's Law and the Throne) and have it work for them instead of against them.

Even if they're opposing each other they can still work towards similar goals that don't diverge until much later.

- we start with short and cryptic flashback of Munsarath where he did meet with...someone, a woman. Whoever she is Quinn synchronized with her and learned that she's very familiar to her and in fact might be her origin. It seems this woman has some form of Hadou. Munsarath threw them (I imagine Quinn and "Woman") into abyss, saying he will retire for a time being and speaks about rebuke. Also, keep in mind that this “woman” might be sword.
- we cut to another flashback. Here someone (another woman) apologizes to Sirius (at least 20 years younger) for not being able to stop "her" and thinks she will be killed, but Sirius says death of his companions is pointless in his pefect victory and tells her to think what she can do if she's seeking punishment. He then tells her she will marry him (what a swagger). Overall, he appears to be much nicer person than his current version (although he himself noted that this marriage is only for the sake of his ideals, that's, making everyone happy, and he can't love someone as an individual) and Quinn wonders if he was already holding darkness back then. Also, it seems this woman is disapproving of relationship between Varhram and Nahid, but we have no idea what happened between them. Sirius says that "all victory is for the sake of hero" and them (Sirius and his future wife) being swayed by Varhram was just destiny. He speaks her name, but Quinn (and thus, us) couldn't hear it.

>> No.25683148

- we cut back to current events and Quinn wakes up. Munsarath saved everyone from Khvarenah by putting them to sleep. Frederica wonders why Khvarenah's astral body is so devastating now when she was him at Gathas without any problems. It seems that's because there's some sort of deterrence at Gathas where Maou can't kill each other and the same force causes discrepancy of impressions. Second explanation is that Khvarenah himself changed since the battle with Bhavan. For the record, only Frederica, Munsarath and Quinn remain conscious. The rest of Satsujinki are in some kind of vegetative state. But yeah, Khvarenah’s astral body can turn characters such as Frederica and Quinn into cripples just by visual recognition.
- Quinn recalls appearance of Khvarenah and wonders if he's ONLY 1st rank Maou or something more and his astral form gave her strong discomfort.
- Quinn and Frederica wonder how Munsarath was able to move back then. He says that since he's almost blind he isn't distracted by Khvarenah and since his Commandment only partially remains he can see (previously he was totally blind). Based on that, she thinks the easiest way to resist it is to antagonize it with equal power. But since even Frederica was affected at that time, Munsarath shouldn’t be able to resist it. She thinks he’s perhaps still under influence of Varhram and that’s why he could resist it. She refuses to believe it because Varhram is dead…then questions why they can still feel his heartbeat.

>> No.25683166

Frederica orders Munsarath to synchronize his senses with her and Quinn, that way they can potentially endure Khvarenah’s appearance.
- Quinn braces for impact because as an Ashavan, synchronizing with Daeva is dangerous. And she relieves his life. She sees scenery of the past, specifically the day he was defeated by Varhram…at least it should be him “someone” says Munsarath is unable to see their future. Because they don’t have one, whether it’s past, present or future they do the same thing again and again. Munsarath who arrogantly branded himself as shinigami who governs the fate of humans, meet with “absolute existence”. That person is most likely that woman who made contract with Varhram. She tells Munsarath that she’s tired of giving birth to heroes and that if he (Munsarath) wants to kill her he should help her. Munsarath kneels in awe and it was back then when he established Zamyad Yasht. She speaks about someone who goes along with her self-destruction and about “unrewarded dream” . Whoever she is, she’s another character with heterochromia, having eyes of gold and silver (same color as Nadare) that embody dual nature of the universe. For some reason, this scene feels very nostalgic to Quinn, but before she could see more she wakes up after she was stabbed by Elners, one of Satsujinki maids. Munsarath synchronization was interrupted, but it still had some effect, because Quinn can now see from his point of view. His eyesight is really bad like he said, but among shadows Quinn sees one figure that stand out clearly, concept that she couldn’t understand before (from her fight with Mashyana) because she has not reached that stage yet, Khvarenah called her once as if cursing – Divine Sword (神剣) .

we cut to Bhavan vs Magsarion. They continue to exchange mortal blows, grinding flesh, bones and internal organs. We see this fight from the point of view of…Melek Taus, Magsarion’s armor…who is a girl. She wants to disappear but Magsarion doesn’t allow her and forces to endure Bhavan’s attacks, even though she should be unable to withstand them. Magsarion’s killing intent literally tortures her without end and slowly makes her forget her own existence. For her, this oblivion is salvation and all of her pain will mix with Magsarion hatred. And she begs him to eat her. She knows his prayer is immutable ■ so she knows to become part of it is her purpose. Sexual innuendo aside, I wonder if it’s a hint at Muzan not having armor. Crisis in fighting against Bhavan causes her to evolve even futher. Bhavan no longer feels like he’s hitting something solid, or even liquid and gas, but something vague, like “concept”. Magsarion stabs him in the heart and Bhavan still hits him, but this strange response from armor continues – he instinctively understands that’s not smth he can break with physical force, but that doesn’t stop him from trying. Bhavan doesn’t even regenerate, but forcibly closes his wounds by muscle contraction (lmao).

>> No.25683205

- and then we have glimpse of Bhavan’s 2nd Commandment – on rare situations such as now, the only people who saw it beside Magsarion are locusts, Khvarenah and Nadare. In other words, it activates only when he fights against someone close him or his own nature. Even Bhavan himself doesn’t know about that. Magsarion is attacked with one attack, but he’s hit twice or trice and even Bhavan is harmed by this. It doesn’t always occur and it’s a form of “mutation” that activates only under special conditions. This’s unconscious Commandment that even he isn’t aware off. Normally, you must pledge to Shinga in order to establish Commandment, but in some cases deep belief causes self-imposing of restrictions/vows. In the case of Bhavan, he unconsciously established it ever since he was a baby – that the last one to fight him will be…him. So whenever he fights the enemy acknowledged by him, clones with polyphenic trait will appear and fight against his enemy and against himself, creating battle royale. Every single clone is genuine Bhavan, with the same kind of power and stats and by mutual killing they grow stronger. Even Khvarenah and Nadare were unable to grasp this Commandment – when he fought against them clones weren’t materialized enough to recognize bodies, but now they’ve obtained full physical forms. So Magsarion is surrounded by Bhavan x4. And they start to mercilessly pummel him (and themselves).

He answers that he couldn’t grasp his essence even for a moment and even though his martial arts and manpower were unmatched, his point of view was the most outstanding property. In a world where people fight for the sake of fighting, only he was looking beyond postwar future. Varhram’s Commandment helped him to find what this “true victory” looks like. Also, it seems Roshan has some plans with Alma.
- we cut to Feldows and Samrukh. She no longer even remembers his name or her own name for that matter. Meanwhile Feldows doesn’t even bother to teach her his own name, because he feels unworthy. Anyway, it’s sad to see what happened to these two.
- they’re interrupted by Tarvid and Zarchiede…or maybe I should call them Tarchiede because it appears Nadare somehow (probably effect of Houkai) fused their bodies in misshapen way, embodying collapse. They should be unable to fight like that, but they’re brimming with power and they attack with spiral and straight line at the same time.

>> No.25684429

Few more things to note:

Munsarath meet with Divine Sword before his fight with Varhram.

Divine Sword also has the same heterochromia as Nadare and she's the one who spoke about self-destruction, not Nadare. That's mistake on my part.

Also, the reason why Elners is able to move and knows Quinn's structure is because she's controlled by Khvarenah.

Fractured World:

Nadare's special ability, however, through what kind of logic it works isn't neither known nor understood. Just that this power's nature is that of creating "agitation" or, to say it with another word, "chaos".

It is capable of detaching things which are fused, as well as mixing together things which were originally separate, that is, to destroy the target's form as it should be and to change it into a different thing altogether. If this is used at large scale, Nadare is capable of forcibly modifying the arrangement of celestial bodies, if used at small scale, she's able to reconstruct individual life forms in a chimera-like fashion.

At first glance, the scale of the former and the later are truly worlds apart, however, for Nadare, neither of them present a great difference in terms of the effort she must exert. From this fact, Fractured World is not something accomplished by scrapping off mind and body, much like what Power of the Ego or Commandments require, but the mere execution of "the right/privilege of being able to perform that". So to speak, it is connected to her position/standpoint, and seems to be a type of Authority.

However, when taking into account that a Star Spirit's Authority only works inside their own body, Nadare's privilege, capable of affecting the entire universe, is certainly exceptional, and there's no choice but to call it an abnormal thing.

Maurya Aeshma:​
The one true Commandment of Bahlavan. In exchange for the binding of "Continuing to fight without the dread of loneliness", he gets "Being able to create alter egos not one tiny bit different from oneself" as a boon.

Once he becomes alone, as the strongest existence in the universe, wouldn't he only find infinite boredom? If that's the case, isn't the "strongest" an extremely nihilistic concept, devoid of all meaning? To this issue, which is always following around those aiming for the top, Bahlavan produced a certain answer: "To continue fighting oneself, to continue exceeding oneself".

Because this is a Commandment established within his deep psyche/unconscious mind, Bahlavan himself has absolutely no self awareness about it. However, because he certainly possesses resolution, even at the present stage, if certain conditions are fullfilled, this Commadment will be invoked. And that is once Bahlavan meets the same kind of existence that he is.

In the situation in which he fights an enemy that he considers to be "close to oneself" in the physical and spiritual planes, his self-propagation will begin, precisely because the situation would have become a simulation of the state of affairs of there being no one but Bahlavan in the universe.

His multiple existences, appearing in this ocassion as a swarm, are all the real deal. Thinking, power, as well as growth speed, there's absolutely no difference in all of these aspects, and all of them, as genuine Bahlavan's, aim to be the strongest, and will start a battle royale, trying to swallow the enemies standing against them, in a display that can't be called anything but absurd. However, the Bahlavan's aren't capable of recognizing their alter egos, and because of that, they will seek only a 1 versus 1 confrontation, the reason for why will be presented below.

Because it is maximum excitement and exaltation which has given birth to this swarm, Bahlavan enters some kind of trance while this Commandment is active. Because there are absolutely no differences in between the alter egos and the main body, he can't understand the fact of having multiplied through sensible input. It is a system which Bahlavan, still in a half dreaming state, won't be able to truly become aware of until he has accomplished his universal extermination.

Ultimately, at the stage of dry run, what this Commandment means is something hard to understand. The "strongest", the "top", the nothingness he will arrive to at the end, how does one fight and achieve victory? He has already arrived at the answer for this questions, as mentioned above. Thus, with basis on instinctual understanding, battle royale is established, but currently, he's not able to understand this with his own intellect. According to the Bahlavan's own subjectivity, the number of attacks would increase for some reason, and they will receive mysterious, inexplicable damage. However, it is fun. Because Bahlavan is right now surely pushing forward through the path towards his dream, he'll think later. No, there's no need for things such as thinking. To harbour questions regarding one's path is but the hesitation of weaklings, therefore, that's irrelevant to me.

In the past, Bahlavan's activated swarm reached the point where he could multiply his limbs to those of two or three people, however, in his fight against Magsarion, he's been able to create 4 full bodies of himself in complete form. That is, just from getting excited, there's absolutely no numerical limit to these alter egos, from a theoretical standpoint.

- this chapter starts with flashback where Locusts encountered Nadare for the first time
- while there are many mysteries surrounding Nadare's Houkai, the biggest question is the source of this power. Here we learn that Nadare is pathetically weak: her Garyoku is no different from regular Daeva and her swordsmanship is mediocre. Considering she's said to be source of Dragvant her position and power are disproportionate. Yet, every time Locusts cross swords with her they can't shake of this feeling of discomfort, as if the world collapsed.
- Locusts don't care that much, in fact, they're happy they can fight against someone that even Bahlavan couldn't beat
- Nadare genuinely praises these two and calls herself "sham"
- despite her shitty combat skills, Nadare keeps parrying both Tarvid and Zarchiede. This's not the result of her martial arts, but something related to her position. All attacks are parried by her, as if 1 in 10000 chance was repeated. She's ashamed of this, but also harbors sense of superiority. Strong despite being weak, inferior despite being strong. Every time they exchange attacks or words they're trapped in premonition that common sense collapsed.
- Nadare says that unless someone can understand what "everyone" means no one can surpass her. Also, it seems that it's her fault that Gudouers are inhibited.
- her Houkai has no concept of range and even if someone is hundreds of millions of light years away they cannot escape (her range truly seems to be universal). It's a power that everyone who has become Nadare in the past possessed
- and she proceeds to fuse them. Once again we have mention that Houkai is some kind of authority, not Commandment which mainly focus on self-reinforcement, not changing others. Unlike star spirits who rule star, Nadare's Houkai extends to the entire universe. She has no talent, yet she has privilege of Gods.
- Nadare has some kind of role in the world (apparently to prevent everything from becoming stale) as a "Minna no Maou (Everyone's Archdemon)". It's her wish that their lives will not fall into farce and will become true twill pattern that will remain over time.
- fused Tarvid and Zarchiede were by expelled by her from Angra Mainyu through forced teleporation, repeating it as if they were pinballs in space
- their fusion doesn't inhibits them, but in fact made them stronger. By competing with each other they created impossible technique that's fusion of their two Commandments - a spiral that goes straight. It might be because of them, but also Nadare's Houkai collapsing that framework. It's a technique similiar to drill, but it's unavoidable and indefensible. Even if someone will escape to past or future it will still reach them by ignoring causality. They're now comparable to Bahlavan.
- yet Samrukh and Feldows were still able to intercept them. It's thanks to that white world again and now we have more details about it. It's a miracle, power once given to hero and his friends. Prayer of everyone which has been collected over a long period of time. Sirius described them as Kenzoku (now we can be sure of Divine Sword) and knows true nature of this power. The problem is Sirius doesn't even try to honor them and it seems he's even trying to crush them. Truth about that is still unknown.
- naturally, Quinn is the source of this phenomenon. By encountering Khvarenah she has begun to return to her state before she was remodelled by him.
- that change was triggered by her fight against Frederica on Zahhak. In addition, Frederica's lineage is closely related to Quinn's previous life.
- as a result of this ever-increasing power of miracles Samrukh and Feldows are constantly raising in power and it's equal to some kind of countdown.
- Nadare is observing everything from Angra Mainyu. She doesn't have clairvoyance, but she can imitate it only when she uses Houkai or when Tentsui occurs. It's more like intuition than stict seeing. It's a fairly limited and modest power, but in fact it's one Nadare is most proud of because it's not related to Authority or Commandment - power not given by world, but cultivated through her own efforts. This "6th sense" is acquired, not related to existing laws and not a product of Garyoku. Nadare called it "immutable", concept that doesn't fit into doctrine of the world.
- Nadare then speaks some vague words. Something about unforgettable memories of disgrace and flow of shame. In a world where everything changes she wants to remember "everyone" Those who change, those with the same brilliance - she wants to keep everyone in her heart. She wants to be the "last Nadare". Battle of Deva and Asura that "previous Nadare" (also, described as "he") forced was even more fierce so she cannot stop now. Nadare doesn't want something to repeat, but she can't resist desire to "return", it's a contradiction.
- also, she senses someone wants to join the war, she didn't plan to add that person, but is fine with it

>> No.26066726

- we have more details about Samrukh's Melek Taus - if Magsarion's version is a gluttonous big sister, then her is picky younger brother. That's because memories, unlike emotions are limited and there's always certain amount one can feed them to the armor.
- however, her armor suddenly stops activity and is exposed to Locusts attack. It's most likely related to her memories about Magsarion.
- before she's killed, she's saved by...Acchan! She appears in her loli form and we learn that she became star spirit of Druj Nasu after all

After all, no normal person would do that, that's what his scene during Marie's route means, it's him realizing that his entire existence is nothing more than being the "protagonist" of some over the top opera, that his entire personality is created by Mercurius to fulfill that certain role and fight against the LDO.
