Healing, Offensive, and Manipulation



Zaiphon is the "magic" of 07-Ghosts's world; Zaiphon is the ability to convert a life source into various forms of energy. It is mainly controlled by writing words in the air with the hands, though people may use weapons to channel Zaiphon. Those who have the ability to use Zaiphon are rare and thought of as blessed by God. Every user's capabilities are different, and in many cases, reflect their nature. Zaiphon is generally categorized into three types:

Healing Zaiphon: People with this type of Zaiphon are able to heal wounds and share their Zaiphon with others or transfer their Zaiphon to others. A character who primarily uses this Zaiphon is Labrador, Capella, and Assistant Archbishop Bastien.

Offensive Zaiphon: Those with this kind of Zaiphon have the ability to attack their enemies and protect themselves from attacks directed to them. Teito, Mikage, Hakuren and Frau are examples of characters who primarily use the offensive branch.

Manipulation Zaiphon: This type is particularly special and rare. Those with Manipulation Zaiphon are able to move things at will. A Character who possesses this type of Zaiphon include Castor.

There is also a variety of weapons used to manipulate Zaiphon, the most commonly known being the bascule. There are different bascules, some for people who have some or no experience with a bascule leading up to the ones for experts. With the bascule, people may attack Kor. However, the healing branch cannot directly attack a Kor, but it can restrict and remove it from a person. The offensive branch is different and attacks a Kor outright. According to Castor, people may learn how to use the different branches of Zaiphon. Also mentioned briefly in 07 Ghost, there are weapons that can manipulate zaiphon. These weapons are used not for Kor but are used for fighting.
