Intending to turn the Divine Power against the Gods themselves, the
progenitor of humanity Adam Weishaupt was struck down by the Symphogear,
transmuted by the Lapis Philosophorum powered by Saint-Germain's ideals.
The secretive Bavarian Illuminati met its end,
and the remnants forced into a corner by the actions of various governments.
The Illuminati weren't the only ones driven into a corner.
The former superpower America had once again turned its nuclear weapons towards Japan.
Facing international criticism, they were forced into solitude on the world stage.
Although they wish for a political solution
in order to prevent the embargo from becoming the spark of a new global conflict,
conflicting expectations of national parties led only to discord, and progress is nearly non-existent.
Even Japan, one of the countries involved,
had sent an appeal to America for a cooperative partnership to mend the broken relationship between the two countries.
Despite this, the act began and ended in superficiality and no agreement was ever reached.
The fate of the world is one that no-one can yet see.
Furthermore, the tensions run high at home as well.
From a place where all the city's landmarks could be viewed at once,
riding in a gondola on the large Ferris wheel famed as a dating location,
were Lydian Private Music Academy students Tachibana Hibki and Kohinata Miku.
The taiyaki they hold in their hands, filled with rice dumplings, are splendid.
Without being too sweet, the epitome of red bean paste has no faults to speak of.
Yet even so, as tension runs between them,
Miku calmly poses a question to Hibiki.
Sure enough, a question that the answer to which lies only within Hibiki, who is at a loss for words.
The threads of legend weaved in the past converge on XV.
The battle around the holy corpse occurs in the dead of summer.
With the bursting lake's surface as their stage, the Girls' voices unleash their radiance.
From Beyond Human History
A casket, sealed away in ages past, surfaces in midsummer.
What lies within is sin, punishment— And the truth.
Its silence is stunning, as words themselves are stolen away.
The fiends of remnant gaze down from above, freed from their yokes.
Dreaming of a future denied, they seek vengeance for a disgrace suffered.
She has appeared many times throughout human history, and is the instigator of many of mankind's great paradigm shifts.
She is also the single most important individual to the story of the Adaptors thus far. Her name bears the meaning of "the end."
However, all of these technologies were mistakes, brought about by the Curse of Balal causing her to be unable to convey her emotions.
Although she was once immortal, in the end she was set free from delusion by the fist and the scythe, able move on with a smile.
Behind her sadness, however,was a truth not known to anyone, not even Finè herself.
However, we must not forget that there are some occasions where common sense can become the perfect blade to cut all the nonsense straight in two!"High speed maneuvers on ice call for skates, duh!"
Depending on the Adaptor's level of skill and personal battle style,
there is a systematic progression of phases that they go through to release the locks.
In the decisive battle against the Lodgemaster of the Bavarian Illuminati, Adam Weishaupt,
the current iteration of the Symphogears, rebuilt by the red gleam of the Lapis Philosophorum,
were contaminated by a foreign element outside of their original design specifications.
This is assumed to be the inclusion of the Faust Robea's special characteristics.
Examinations and trials showed no immediate problems,
and despite the continued caution regarding anomalies,
circumstances forced the Adaptors back into normal activity.
SG-r01 Ame-no-Habakiri (Adaptor: Tsubasa)
SG-r02 Ichaival (Adaptor: Chris)
SG-r03' Gungnir (Adaptor: Hibiki)
SG-x00 Airget-lahm (Adaptor: Maria)
SG-i01 Shul Shagana (Adaptor: Shirabe)
SG-i02 Igalima (Adaptor: Kirika)
"SG" stands for "Symphogear." The "r" and "i" stand for "regular" and "irregular," respectively. This is based upon various facts and circumstances surrounding their development.
The "x," which is unique to Airget-lamh, indicates it was created from an "unidentified relic," as it was unable to be classified after analysis.
Furthermore, the extra apostrophe after Gungnir’s ID number is to separate it from another unit developed from a fragment of the same relic. It also signifies that this unit was developed after the original "03." On the whole, whenever the Symphogears are discussed, their model number is usually abbreviated or omitted entirely in favor of simply referring to them by the base relic.
As an addendum, the below list includes the model numbers for the Symphogear units that have been lost:
SG-r03 Gungnir (Adaptor: Kanade -> Hibiki)SG-i03 Shenshoujing (Adaptor: Miku)
These are phenomenon that completely contradict and transcend our current understanding of reason, technology, and divine providence.In other words, we have no idea. At all.
It is thought to be the source of the "Curse of Balal," which distrupts mankind's mutual understanding.
Once, a prehistoric priestess known as Finè set out to destroy the moon, and the ruins along with it.
Furthermore, the Bavarian Illuminati, under the leadership of Saint-Germain, attempted to gain control of the ruins and release the curse on humanity.However, neither attempt was successful, and humanity still shoulders the yoke of disharmony brought forth by the lunar ruins.
Recently, the Autoscorer known as "Tiki" was discovered to be equipped with a relic known as the "Antikythera Mechanism," giving her the ability to observe, map, and record the movements of planets and stars.
The collected data covered a wide number of topics, including mapping the veins of the Earth and heavens, known as Leylines,as well as the location of a "coffin" containing an Annunaki's holy corpse.
His true form was that of a puppet, created before even prehistoric civilization. He was cast aside, a discarded prototype for mankind.
The reason for his abandonment was being "too perfect."
Although he possessed every ability and function his creators, the Annunaki, wished, it was reasoned that he had no potential beyond that and was dismissed from being officially designated as "human."
Aiming once again to become the ruler of the planet and foreseeing the imminent revival of the Annunaki, he sought the "power" that would allow him to stand on their level and mount his resistance. In this, he found himself at odds with the Symphogear Adaptors and the rest of the Illuminati's leadership.With his dying breath, he spat a curse upon tomorrow and sneered at the God Slayer's fist.
Bavarian Illuminati that lie in hiding.
The majority of such individuals were apprehended by officials of various governments, and are now awaiting judgment.
However, three specimens held in contempt within the society as being "filthy rustlings," Vanessa, Millaarc, and Elsa, grab hold of their dreams, hoist their ideals, and begin their dark and lonely voyage towards accomplishing their goals.
Thou must not look upon us with scorn.
an abbreviation for "Glittering Gear Gathering Finest Arts."
It is a more refined and efficient form of a tactic seen before in fights against powerful foes, "purging and blasting," and serves as one of the many special functions of the Symphogear.
It functions by converting the outer protective shell of the Symphogear back into energy, focusing it at the fist, and firing the energy at a target at precise timing.
The six Adaptors implementing the technique to focus the energy into a spiral point is known as "hexa-revolver."
By including support into the Symphogear's internal operating system, combined with data from numerous training sessions and live implementations, the technique was optimized to allow precise control over the conversion of defensive power into offensive power.
Currently, further exploration of other possible uses for this technique is underway.
Its greatest weakness is the decrease in effectiveness of the Symphogear's various defense fields. In such a state, there is even a limit to how much interference from the Alca-Noise the Symphogear can tolerate. Depending on the situation, even an Adaptor who stands victorious could be at risk of taking a fatal blow.
It is a "decisive play" not only in the sense that it immediately determines the victor.The user must also have the conviction to accept the consequences.
The Day the Heavens Fell
As seasons change from summer to winter, schemes once again begin to unfold.
Seeking a sacred husk, the swarm crawls forth from an ominous twilight.
There is no room for doubt, they are monsters with a lust for power.
You implore yourself to "do what must be done," and you answer in kind: "it shall be so."
Voices turn to screams as the curtain falls on the garden closest to you and heaven.
The dread sealed away within your heart will soon turn to scorn.
You're used to being looked down upon, yet you do not lose your pride.
Before taking a life, you must first sacrifice your own.
Engraved on the light's shadow, the meaning of words is still "words."
Even were you to be reborn seven times, you retain the conviction to push forward.
And That Flower Is an Amalgam
Here in heaven and earth the time is ripe, as is the sweet forbidden fruit.
The starlight crosswind blows as vows are called upon here and now.
The mysterious melody carries with it the essence of fear, yet it feels familiar to you alone.
Blooming in the maze, the crimson stone shines with a will to continue the fight.
In the brief moment before you are trampled underfoot, the feelings you strike upon carry deep meaning.
What Was Hidden in the Bag
The words sealed away are finally and suddenly blurted out.
I couldn't reveal my feelings, nor myself.
I vent my frustration onto you, the one that will never understand.
How many mountains of bodies and rivers of blood must be created in order to protect the flame?
As clouds combine to plunge the road into shadow, death approaches even as you desperately attempt to escape.
While walking along this road, at some point you lost the reason you began.
You cry out for help but receive no answer,
the sharp words that wound your pride seek to command you and leave you exposed.
Even when faced with the loss of their future, the resistance does not stop marching forward.
The forbidden song floats in the sky as it puts the stars to sleep with a kiss.
Sever the Tangled Threads
If that which was sworn to be slain is put to words,
erase them by plucking the strings from beyond zeros and ones.
Discarded as unnecessary and unworthy, echoes of memories once lost linger here.
Reflect upon those words that should never have been exchanged.
Everything is entrusted to you, to your fist, more gentle than any other.
Those four protected their master, Carol, and were made to record songs, similar to sheet music.
The process of their creation was full of trial-and-error, resulting in an area of the Château de Tiffauges being dedicated to rejected bodies to be used as spare parts should the need arise.
A large amount of energy was required for the divine power to fully materialize, and Noble Red attempted to use "Carol's body" to bypass the security and reactivate the rejected bodies.
They were successful in linking into the autoscorer's energy source, their "memories."
Noble Red's mistake was that one small existence, recognized to be their former master, did not want to die, did not want to give up on living.
The numerous incomplete Michas, Leiurs, Pharas, and Garies were able to travel against the current and recombine into relatively undamaged basic forms.
Despite their instability, they were able to once again reclaim their former figures.
It was not some sort of miracle, they were simply knights rushing to answer their master's call.
One could say they had more heart than even a human.Their power was not what it once was, but they fulfilled their master's orders without hesitation or dissatisfaction.
This was merely a front to construct a large-scale secret hideout in the heart of the city.
Under the disaster prevention law, management of the facility was entrusted to the Kazanari Organization.
This resulted in a temporary purge of the energy outside of the Château, where it gathered.
Plans were amended to allow the divine power time to materialize and fill the girl serving as its vessel.
The giant mass of energy "located" at the highest point of Château de Tiffauges does not move with any clear will of its own.
Instead, it merely defends itself from approaching helicopters and Adaptors while attempting to invade its chosen "vessel" like a hermit crab searching for a shell.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the divine power has not yet completely filled her.
A small hope that she may yet be able to be saved.But...
For Maria and Serena, it's a song of irreplaceable memories, which, in the Frontier Incident, became a miracle when it was used to focus phonic gain.
When the dissonance heard when the Vambrace of Shem-Ha activated and the divine power materialized is morphed via a linguistic evolution model taking into account time and propagation distance, a melody resembling that of Apple is able to be discerned.The true meaning of that information is not yet clear.
Due to high-frequency emitters in both of her arms, her hands are able to vibrate at intense speeds, capable of severing even the intermolecular bonds of her target.
Despite the fact that it may be considered excessive to dispose of Elfnein, Venessa flung it at her with the intent of testing the functionality of her new right arm.Swinging one's arm down in such a manner certainly is simply using it as a sword.
As perfection nears completion, the imperfect are close in pursuit.
Public and private. A deeper plan hidden beyond even those.
In spite of this, you face the wall separating you from the Future, although you will never reach it.
What do you believe in, what is your choice? Unable to comprehend the truth,
you have no idea how to proceed as they fade away— the rainbow of someday, the memories of flowers.
