A «Divine Object» (ディヴァイン・オブジェクト or 神器, Divain Obujekuto or Jinki?) is an item in Underworld that was created by converting an animal, plant or object which had gathered a large amount of resources (memories) into a high «Priority» item, usually via a high-ranking Sacred Arts ritual. The «Priority» Class of Divine Objects outrank even items made out of dragon bones, which are supposedly the highest grade material for weapons in Underworld. Weapons of this class can be enhanced with the high-ranking «Armament Full Control Art» Sacred Art ritual that unlocks the true potential of the weapon.
Most Divine Objects are created by the Axiom Church and are used as weapons by the Integrity Knights. Divine Object weapons can only be used by people whose souls resonate with the weapon's memories.
Non-weapon Divine Objects also exist and usually have a certain "magical" attribute that allows them to do tasks which would normally require high-ranking Sacred Art rituals, like telling the current time in Underworld.
As creating objects of a certain priority requires sacrificing an existence equal to the desired item, all Divine Objects are created from objects, animals or plants that have existed for long periods of time and have thus absorbed a large amount of resources and, because of that, have a large level of Priority. The created weapons inherit the parameters (memories) of the base material that they are made from, allowing the use of «Armament Full Control Arts» on such weapons to awaken their true parameters, greatly boosting the offensive power of the weapon.
Known Divine ObjectsEdit
|Image||English Name||Japanese Name||User(s)||Description||Ref|
|«Bells of Time Telling»||Settlements||One of the most widespread Divine Objects in Underworld, which replaced the «Divine Object of Engraved Time». The bells only chime once every half hour, with a different melody each hour in a twelve hour period. Every settlement has at least one bell, while large settlements like Centoria have plenty of these bells throughout the city. The bells were actually created by the Axiom Church as a method to keep town and village residents from moving too far away from their hometown, as the bells can only be heard within a fixed radius of the settlement, creating a psychological thought for most people to stay within the radius.|||
