Shirou Kotomine - Fate/Apocrypha
Mantle of Purification: The bellicosa given to Adamas when he joined the Crux Fidelis, its form is that of a red cloak that Adamas wears all the time. When awakened it glows with luminescence which extends to Adamas' body and concentrates at his hands, allowing him to exorcise lesser demons or cause holy damage to greater ones searing their flesh making them flinch.
Adamas' powers and abilities derive from contracts made between his ancestors and the angelic orders. Each generation has forged one pact with each order. Adamas belongs to the ninth generation of the family without having formed a pact with the ninth order that of the Seraphim, yet.
*Limbs cannot be regenerated, only the wound will close.
*If the heart or brain of the wounded are irreversibly damaged the spell has no effect.
*The spell excludes direct harming abilities like offensive magic or physical attacks/objects.
*The spell lasts only while the trance state and the chants continue.
*The stronger the demon, the lesser is this spell's influence over them. The user might also be exhausted for some time proportional to the demon's resistance and power.
*Could potentially need OOC approval.
*Despite weakening the bound individual, they can be broken with enough effort or if the force outright overpowers them.
*The spell won't have an effect on demons, or someone that used demonic powers or performed evil deeds unless they sought earnest redemption before their death.
*Needs OOC approval.
*Adamas feels twice the normal pain.
*Immortality holds as long as the individual has the will to live.
All of the angelic pacts become void should the maker form a pact with a demon or perform an evil act while having full knowledge of the situation. Should this occur, reestablishment of the pacts is almost unattainable.
During the time demons terrorized Sium and the humans inhabiting the lands, a family with strong faith in the light tried to offer any help possible to those hunted by the dark beings. Having spent more than half their riches on providing shelter and food to people throughout the land, they became known for their benevolence. Then the time came when the family was hunted down by the malevolent beasts, one by one eight members of the family were murdered with only one staying alive. In the year 497 the man was ultimately cornered like a helpless creature, as the demons attacked a brilliant light shone above him burning the beasts to ashes. The man opened his eyes and saw angels hovering above him offering him a pact of power for being a benefactor to people in need. He and his descendants were to continue helping the people of Sium and in return they would have the favor of the angels, giving them abilities that people wouldn't normally be able to receive or handle. The man took the name Oblige as the family name, a reminder to the promise that was made, the order of the Angels gave the man a drop of their blood, informing him that if his family would uphold the pact they would gain the favor of even more powerful angels and with that they vanished. The man with angelic blood now in his veins created his family from the start.
In the next decades that came the family grew and as generations came and went, the firstborn member of each generation made a new pact with a higher angelic order and gained new powers, always reminiscent of their oath to provide help to those in need.
During the eighth generation the demons launched an all out attack on the family, even though they were able to protect themselves well they didn't have any means of attacking the demons directly. Their energy waned as they got weary of the constant assault, even if some were brought back from the dead their power reserves kept declining. It was then that they implored the angels for a miracle. The firstborn was taken away in secrecy while the others gave their lives as her shield. When she finally was safe the order of the Cherubim appeared reassuring her that now a new power arrived at Sium and with that power humans would also be able to help themselves, but her work or that of her family wasn't over yet. The angels established the eighth pact with her, rendering her immortal after her plea of handling the weight of helping others in need alone. Only after a couple eons did she finally settle in with a loved one and her immortality passed on to her son, Adamas.
Adamas grew in a safer world than his ancestors, his mother told him the story of their family as spoken by the angels each time a new pact was formed, she taught him to be virtuous and pious for he had a great role in the world as one of its protectors. Adamas grew to be an intelligent individual, being fascinated by books from a young age it wasn't often that he left the house. Even though he didn't spend much time with others due to that fact, he was always kind and loved by people, his abilities and ideals having saved many.
Ultimately, he decided to join the Crux Fidelis at the age of 20, as they too wanted to protect humanity from the demonic danger. He showed great promise in his early years in the faction and through his powers and dedication, he quickly rose through the ranks attaining that of the Commander, for his hard work and persistent efforts to protect the humans he was given the spot of Diligience at the age of 49. Despite being aware of the corruption within the Crux he still believed in their main cause of protecting Sium and accepted the position, after all in his mind it would become easier to reach even more people through a high-ranked position.
Six years later and he still seldom stays long at the headquarter as he mostly travels around Sium offering his aid to people in need or other faction members he meets during his travels. Due to his kind nature and beliefs he views all members of the faction more as colleagues than ranked members of lesser or greater power.
