Attunements and Crystal Marks[edit]

Name Base Attunement Location Primary Mana Secondary Mana Tertiary Mana Function
Invoker[2] Summoner Lung TBA TBA TBA

Allows a mage to draw power directly from their summoned monsters, rather than just casting their spells with their own mana supply.[2]

Density Crystal Mark[3] NA Hand Density[3] - -

Allows Sera to draw on Density mana through her bond with the Transcendence Crystal.[3]

Invoker Attunement[edit]

Sera has an ascended attunement, Invoker. It is an ascended Summoner attunement and they are very similar with Invoker allowing Sera to draw on the mana and abilities from her summoned creatures. She can form contracts and bind monsters. Sera has a shroud, a magical aura that slows down or stops attacks, from her attunement. She is a lung marked attuned so she typically uses incantations with her spells. She can cast a binding spell that allows her to make weak copies of monsters with the word "bind" and if the monster is intelligent she can form a contract in which they exchange mana. Each bound and contracted creature costs Sera some of her mana pool but as an Invoker her pool grows faster than most other attunements. The Invoker attunement gives access to air and transference mana which can be combined to form travel mana.

Invoker Function[edit]

Air Mana[edit]

Sera gets access to air mana from her attunement.

Move Object

Sera has an air spell that allows her to move objects towards her. She used the chant "Wyvern, I call upon our pact. Deliver this key unto me." The spell does not actually require a contract with a wyvern because Sera has air mana from her attunement naturally.

Wind Barrier

Sera has a spell that holds wind back. She uses the chant "Wyvern, I call upon our pact! Protect us from the wind." Again the spell does not actually require a contract with a wyvern because Sera has air mana from her attunement naturally.


Sera can levitate upwards with wind mana. She uses the word "float" or "levitate."

Wind Blast

Sera can launch blasts of wind that push things away. She can also use blasts of wind to push herself. She can also produce an omni-directional wind.


Sera can use air mana to fly.

Transference Mana[edit]

Transference mana helps build up speed.


Sera has made a number of contracts with different monsters, some of them enabling her use of their mana types. Sera frequently summons copies of her contracted monsters to aid her in battle. If she 'invokes' her contracts she can draw on their mana pool and spells.


Sera negotiated a contract with Seiryu the God Serpent during her Judgment, allowing her to use ice magic[1] and grants her limited control over ice magic. Seiryu copies can only be summoned within the Spires and Sera uses the chant "Serpent of the deepest depths, / Mother of a thousand spawn, / Power beyond mortal grasp, / I call upon our bond. / My strength to yours is nothing, / But my soul to yours demands, / Fulfill the oath we made as one, / And come to my command! / Seiryu, I summon you." Sera does not have the power to true summon Seiryu but even a fraction of Seiryu is devastatingly powerful.

Ice Mana[edit]

Sera uses ice mana frequently. She can use ice mana because of her contract with Seiryu.

Permafrost Cascade

'Permafrost Cascade' is a spell that rains down sharp ice at Sera's enemies. She uses the chant "Child of the goddess, I call upon your aid. / Rain frost from the skies in a Permafrost Cascade."

Sera can create spheres of ice that rotate around her.

Ice Wall

Sera can form a wall of ice and she uses the chant "Ice, answer my command and form a wall." She also managed to form an ice barrier with the chant "Frost, I invoke you to block his path."

He is somewhat magic resistant and has intelligence to match a person. Vanniv can use ice, fire, lightning and earth mana. Sera's updated contract with Vanniv gives Sera access to earth mana.

She has three elemental shrouds. She has a great physical strength and speed and can produce a burning breath attack by consuming a bit of her fire shroud. She can also cause chest pain with a gesture and form spikes, spears, knives and blasts of red energy. She can also create a scream based breath attack.

Density Crystal Mark[edit]

Sera has a crystal mark from the Transcendence Gateway Crystal. A crystal mark is in between Dominion Sorcery and Attunements. This mark gives her density mana. It started with a small pool of 10 mana and has an efficiency ratio of 3 to 1.

Magic Items[edit]

Ceris, the Song of Harmony

Sera received Ceris from Katashi. According to him it will "sing for [her] - so long as her mortal heart continues to beat", after which it will return to him[4]. Ceris can absorb any type of spell it comes into contact with and release the spell at the will of the wielder. The absorption range is around 10 feet and requires mental commanding to activate. Only one spell can be stored at a time and the sword has been confirmed to be capable of storing Sapphire level spells.
