◇ Chapter 2: About Sorcery

  • Unique Sorcery

The term “unique sorcery” refers to the sorcery that can be used only by specific sorcerers, rather than general-purpose sorcery. It is classified into four types: wide-area interference, physical interference, conceptual interference, and mental interference.

Wide-area interference and physical interference unique sorcery can also be classified into two systems of seven types of sorcery, basically the same as ordinary sorcery.

→Two systems: internal code, and external code

Seven types: high-speed sorcery, remote sorcery, chain sorcery, delayed sorcery, material change, large-scale sorcery, large-scale chain sorcery

On the other hand, conceptual interference and mental interference are completely different kinds of sorcery, and since few sorcerers possess them, they are classified as unique sorcery.

  • Materia Field

The area covered with Prima Materia exists in humans. A thin membrane covers the human being. Although ordinary people also have this, the quality area tends to be dense (thick) for sorcerers. The higher the rank of the sorcerer, the thicker it becomes. Because of the presence of this Material Field, it is more difficult than usual to invoke sorcery on a human being.

→Examples of the Materia Field

It is theoretically possible for Ray also to use the anti-materia code to target humans and reduce their very existence (since humans are also composed of Prima Materia). However, it is practically impossible because of interference by the Materia Field.

Also, if Amelia’s Causality Butterfly is to be incorporated into the process by targeting sorcerers, the difficulty of code construction jumps even higher, since it requires intervention by the materia field. It is perhaps the highest and most complex code of sorcery that exists in this world.

Therefore, the pressure on the sorcery realm is extraordinary for a Causality Butterfly that incorporates a sorcerer as its target, and it quickly leads to a sorcery realm outburst.

  • Summary of Causality Butterflies

A unique sorcery of the concept interference system that manipulates the law of cause and effect mainly through the actions of the butterfly it creates. It intervenes in the law of causality, in other words, the very concept of causality that exists in this world. It is possible to intervene in the causal relationships that were originally supposed to exist in this world, to cause them to break down, and even to overwrite them by connecting them to other causal relationships. It is overwhelmingly strong against physical interference magic. Its effectiveness depends greatly on Amelia’s condition. Currently, it can only interfere with the law of cause and effect, which produces results from causes, but the causal reversal is theoretically possible. Originally, the causality butterfly is a unique sorcery that manipulates all causality laws. However, this is impossible for the current Amelia.

The activation process must follow the four processes of the Four Causes Theory.

Mass cause is the material of causality. This causal law produces butterflies, which are the main source of butterflies.

Form Cause is the blueprint. This is the process of incorporating the mental image of the causal law to be activated.

Action cause is the action (cause) to manipulate the causal law. It is the butterfly’s action (flapping its wings, moving, blowing up).

Objective cause is the causal law itself that is to be triggered. These three processes are followed, and finally, the “result” is established in the world.

To incorporate these four processes into the code, the sorcery domain is quite compressed. It is a unique sorcery that can only be realized with a sorcery capacity like Amelia’s.

  • Details of the Causality Butterfly

Butterfly of Causality is powerful because it is a concept interference type of unique sorcery that can manipulate the law of causality, but its fuel consumption is extremely bad. It lasts just barely five minutes. Including intervention in the realm of materia targeting sorcerers, the activation time becomes even shorter. If the causal butterfly is overused, the sorcery realm will run out of control and cause self-destruction. This is because the process of the Four Cause Theory is complicated.

Causality Butterfly is a sorcery that interferes with concepts, but since it is only a sorcery that uses the Prima Materia, it can be nullified if it is Ray’s anti-material code. If Amelia were to face Ray’s absolute Materia field, it would not be possible to specify to him the causal code to be activated.

As for attacks, the causality butterfly must always go through the butterfly, and the attack itself is limited to small-scale attacks such as explosions. Therefore, it is impossible to make powerful sorcery a must-hit. This is because there is not enough capacity for other sorcery. However, when it comes to defense, it is possible to make any attack result in “no hit”. It is almost invincible. In terms of combat, it is a unique sorcery that shows its true potential in defense.

  • The Anti Materia Field.

This is a unique sorcery used by Ray White. It is an area centered on oneself, within a radius of five meters, where unspecified substances or phenomena are stopped by deceleration and fixation, and then rendered ineffective by reduction.

It is a dual domain, divided into a perceptual domain and a nullification domain.

The perceptual realm can expand to a radius of up to 50 meters. There is no need for the person to perceive the opponent’s sorcery or physical attacks, and everything is handled automatically. Therefore, there are no blind spots. Even if a surprise attack is made from the darkness, everything is nullified. What is different from normal reduction is that reduction requires the specification of coordinates and the activation of the anti-materia code, which can be used for topical sorcery, but does not cover everything. Therefore, it is sorcery created to compensate for this in this area.

The processes of deceleration, fixation, and reduction are combined into a single code theory, which is held in the brain as a mental model, and the burden is reasonable for the constant activation of sorcery.

  • Demonification(Ogre)

This is a unique sorcery that concentrates the Prima Materia around the body and the material areas covering the limbs to significantly enhance physical abilities. Since it is completely specialized for physical use, its destructive power is outstanding. However, the defenses other than the limbs are weakened, so it is important to be on guard.

  • Ogre (Demonification): Shintira (Raiden)

Converts the Prima Materia covered all over the body into electricity. The internal code raises the body’s physical capabilities, and from there the external code envelopes the entire body like an aura. The aura can be given attributes. Currently, Ariane can only activate Raiden.

  • The Eighth Secret Sword: Lingering Darkness

One of the secret swords owned by the Absolute Sword Sorcerer. Details are unknown at this time.

  • Magic Eye

The magic eye is an unusual ability caused by a sorcery factor. It is something that is fixed in the eyes. It is said that it is almost impossible to acquire it after birth. There are many types of magic eyes, but not all of them are complete, and some are still considered a mystery. Rebecca’s eye for predicting the future is not only possessed by a few people, but it is also difficult to control, and in the past, some people wore eye patches for the rest of their lives. However, as people’s aptitude for sorcery increases with each passing generation, Rebecca gained complete control of her magic eye when she was in her teenage years.
