XV Episode 1
The Symphogear System has 301,655,722 different varieties of locks applied to it. 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 Robe'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. S.O.N.G. continues to collect data while the Adaptors continue combat, observing any changes that may have occurred.
