Saint's Armor (聖王の鎧 Seiō no Yoroi, lit. "Armor of the Saint King") is a defensive fixed skill (固有技能 Koyū Kinō) of Vivio.[1]

Function[edit | edit source]

Aside from providing unparalleled defense in battle, the Saint's Armor has a strong AMF effect, which weakens all incoming magic and slowly erodes binding spells cast upon Vivio.

Nature[edit | edit source]

There are various views on what the "Saint's Armor" actually is. It is possibly a natural ability of the Sankt Kaisers (聖王の資質 Seiō no Shishitsu). Members of the Saint King bloodline possess defensive abilities embedded at the DNA level, a legacy of the Ancient Belkan Warring Ages, when warriors turned their bodies into living weapons. As such, this ability is activated regardless of one's will to protect oneself from danger.[2] This is how Vivio escapes unharmed from Scaglietti's Artificial Mage laboratory despite multiple explosions.

Alternatively, the Saint's Armor may be simply Barrier Jacket tremendously enhanced by the relic implanted inside Vivio.

Uses[edit | edit source]

Following the events of JS Incident, Vivio has lost the ability to conjure the Saint's Armor.[3]
