Divine Protections (加護 Kago) or Blessings are various boosts that may be given to someone at birth.

Contents

Information

Divine Protections are blessings given to people at birth by the world, bestowed by the Od Laguna. Some races have a Divine Protection that is always given to members of that race. Most people are born without any Divine Protection, and those who are born with it know of their own Divine Protection without being told. The ratio of Divine Protection holders is 1:100 for useless ones, 1:1,000 for useful ones, 1:10,000 for somewhat rare ones, 1:100,000 for really useful ones, 1:1,000,000 for unique ones, 1:10,000,000 for more than one, and the existence of those with more than one Divine Protection are considered to be strange. According to both Beatrice and the author himself, Witch Factors are incompatible with those who have Divine Protections, and Authorities are superior versions of Divine Protections. Though Divine Protections remain with the individual from birth to death, it is possible to temporarily strip one of their Protection by using a magic circle that isolates the area from the Od Laguna. It's also worth noting that two Divine Protections that work against each other (for example, if person A has Divine Protection of Arrow Evasion and person B has a made up Divine Protection of Always-Hitting-Your-Shots) will cancel each other out.

However, being born with powers that differed from person to person also meant said people cultivated different values from each other. Thus it was typical for people who had Divine Protections to keep what they did a secret so to not cause any unnecessary problems. Sometimes, people even went as far as murdering the Divine Protection owner, out of shreer jealousy. According to Roswaal J Mathers, asking about the specifics of an individiual's Divine Protection is considered very rude and generally an awful thing to ask about.[1]

Types

The Divine Protection of Wind Indication (風見の加護 Kazami no Kago) is used by Crusch Karsten. It enables her to read the wind and to see invisible things just like the wind. Crusch can also use it to read the situation of others' emotions, making her able to tell if someone has lied.

It enables the user to talk with all sorts of living creatures, however the user speaks in the language of the creature they're talking with, making the user look shady to others. As Otto can't use it properly, he normally keeps it plugged. Continuous use of this Divine Protection can cause the user to cough blood. It's also worth noting that the vast majority of people who're blessed with this Divine Protection ended up going mad and committing suicide, due to the non-stop barrage of noises which are impossible to cancel. Otto Suwen is only the second person in history who managed to tame and control it.

Divine Protection of the Death God

The Divine Protection of the Death God (死神の加護 Shinigami no Kago, "Divine Protection of the Death God") was formerly used by Theresia van Astrea.

It enables the users to bear themselves or each other's physical and emotional burdens and can also be used to split damage between all users such as to block death blows. However, if they were to use it on themselves, they would have to bear a heavy burden on their body. As Mimi is the strongest out of the three of her brothers, they are often stuck with bearing her burdens. In addition, Tivey can launch a destructive interference wave using the Divine Protection and his siblings, though Mimi is limited to five times and Hetaro and Tivey are limited to two times respectively, so the maximum usage per day is four times.

Furthermore, the previous Sword Saint will instinctively know who their successor is.
