AZEGAN FILES: SHEATHES-10 VESSEL 005 Picture

(OoC Disclaimer: this is a SHEATHES-Echelon Subject, meaning it can only influence, function and exist within the Yggdrasil Galactic Triumvirate. It will not, in any way, be showing up in the Ancerious Galaxy, which is where the Monarchs have set up their STABS-2 Galactic Colony. Why would the Monarchs make something as extreme as this? Well, they don't have a choice in the matter. War Games force them to constantly one-up each other in an never-ending arms race. Subjects must outdo each other, but then are in turn just as quickly outdone by an opposing Subject created in response to them. Even if SHEATHES-10 were a Conquest-Oriented SHEATHES, which being an Exploration-Oriented SHEATHES they are not, they may only rely on STABS-Echelon Subjects to fight where STABS Colonies have been established. In any case, this Subject is just to give a glimpse of what the Monarchs are like outside the bounds of the RP, and its showing is purely for fun. Note: this disclaimer sets apart Subjects that will not show up in the Ancerious RP even if the admin allowed their presence. While some Subjects won't appear in the RP due to various circumstances, the usage of certain Subjects outside the Yggdrasil Galactic Triumvirate would be a violation of Monarch Essences and the SHIELDS Treaty. Such a violation would be fatal to the Monarchs, since their 'Patrons' would be obligated to destroy a SHEATHES that did not adhere to its directives.)



GENERAL OVERVIEW

- Empress Hecate is a connoisseur of many Mythologies, not just classical Greek, Norse and Egyptian. There are many cultures with their own catalog of the paranormal or supernatural. While the Cozen Mechanics of her 'Magic' (Cozen not really being True Magic, albeit able to do everything Magic can and more) direct Empress Hecate to base her Arcana State off the generalized consensus of what is Fantasy and what is not, she maintains a large menu of sources to base Subjects off from. Granted, she is under strict orders not to trespass over certain lines set by Siegfried von Eisenhower concerning his faith, but everyone else is fair game. As such, everything from Celtic to Hindu Mythologies has at one point made an appearance within Empress Hecate's ranks. The Azure Monarch does have a thing for anything 'large-scale', however, and she is determined not to play second fiddle to her Crimson and Verdant colleagues. While Lovecraftian Mythology is reserved for the SHIELDS Echelon (that is, a tier too extreme even for the SHEATHES, and so must be confined to the War Games Arena) Empress Hecate has managed to obtain Subjects here and there that satisfy her craving to work and think big. One such Subject is a peculiar creature from the Arabian Mythos:

- The Bahamut is a fish so large that 'all the world's seas placed in its nostril would be like a mustard seed laid in the middle of the desert'. Empress Hecate decided to do some rough calculations. Using the length of the Sahara Desert, and a millimeter-long mustard seed, the size ratio between 'all the world's seas' and the fabled Bahamut's nostril is 4.8 billion to 1. Given that the old world denotation for 'sea' was more synonymous to 'ocean', and that Earth is pretty much covered in water, Empress Hecate decided to multiply that 4.8 billion with another 12,000, which is a rough approximation of Earth's own diameter. She ended up with a nostril length of 57,600,000,000,000 trillion kilometers.

- Being around 12 years old when she thought of this, Manifesting a beast of that magnitude outside of her Internal Reserves was simply out of the question. It would be another eight decades before she could create her very own Bahamut at a fraction of the original intended size. But, create one she did.

PICTURE OVERVIEW

- 1: Arcana Bahamut. What appears to be a colossal pomfret is actually the first 'great milestone' for Empress Hecate in terms of producing immense Subjects. This beast dwarfs the mighty Midgard Serpent of the Norse Mythos and the World Turtle of Chinese Mythos by leaps and bounds; those were before the arrival of her Bahamuts the bigger of her Subjects at the time. The largest Subject of Empress Hecate prior to the Bahamut was the actually the Arcana Hati Wolf, based off one of Fenris' children who was destined to swallow the sun at Ragnarok. However, even the canine with a star-size maw, though no small feat, would soon be outclassed in every way imaginable. Note: the Bahamut pictured above has empty Worldscales, meaning continents, oceans and atmospheres have not been added to them. Arcana Bahamuts by themselves, without any passengers, are classified as Troops by Monarch Authority, but since they're almost always found carrying someone around, they are classified as Vessels here.

- 2: Worldscale Representation. Floating landmasses with their own atmosphere and water. The oceans on Worldscales constantly spill off the edges, the water gradually fading out into nothing after a few thousand kilometers of free-fall. Any water lost this way is simply regenerated ex nihilo, or allowed to become part of any neighboring atmospheres.

- 3: Bahamut Scimitar. The primary weapon of an Arcana Bahamut. This a blade that is at least several light years long, and is perfect for wiping out entire solar system clean. It can be modified into the hand of an Aye-Aye.

- 4: Enchanted Fin and Tail Set. The main source of the Bahamut's locomotion that allows it a rather unusual way of travel.

- 5: Empress of Pearl. Contains a created pantheon that micro-manages everything on the fish's scales, from weather patterns to climate, as well as Worldscale positioning. The Empress of Pearl allows the fine-tuning of even the most minute details of the Arcana Bahamut, and it allows the continuous application of whatever Logic-Defying Enchantments may be required.



UTILITY OVERVIEW

- Not quite as big as a Shesha, which is a many-headed cobra said to be capable of bearing every planet in the universe on its hoods. Nowhere near as dangerous as a Falak, which is said to be capable of swallowing all of creation. Not even remotely in the same league as an Azathoth or Yog-Sothoth, considered by some to be Cosmic Beings in their own right, minor or regular depending on who is asked, and on that note, Empress Gaia and Empress Hecate are at loggerheads as to which Monarch has the right to own Eldritch Assets. However, the Bahamut is a benevolent and docile creature, content to bear a world safely across the vast expanse of space, and compared to the aforementioned creatures, it's much easier to make. Of course, in Empress Hecate's case, her Bahamuts carry more than one world on their backs, and they can certainly pack a wallop if threatened.

- A question any scientific mind would ask right off the bat: how does that thing not simply implode from its own excess of mass? That's certainly a very good question, and had Empress Hecate been one to give a hang about what gravity entails, there would have been a good answer given. Sadly, she isn't. Many, including Emperor Vulcan and Empress Gaia themselves, have speculated as to how the Arcana Bahamut doesn't instantly collapse into a particularly gargantuan black hole. Is Anti-Gravity? No. Well, perhaps the fish itself can manipulate the Aspect of Gravity? Not even. The only thing Empress Hecate cares to divulge is that her 'big fishes' are simply enchanted to work the way they work. Everything, from the Bahamut's bodily systems to the substances making up its very Essence, is a marvel of Arcana craftsmanship that only SHEATHES-10's 'Patrons' seem to understand. Even then, they've declared that describing the fine details of the Arcana Bahamut cannot be done via words.

- What this Subject eats, what its insides look like, how its cells are nourished are aspects Empress Gaia are continuously denied knowledge of by Empress Hecate. The latter also reminds the former that while Subjects may draw from Technological or Natural inspirations (the Bahamut is a fish, and the Elven Longboat is a boat) they don't operate 100% on Natural or Technological bases. It makes no difference as to whether the Arcana Bahamut has enchanted innards, or is utterly hollow: Arcana Subjects will function the way their Empress wishes them to.

- Equally wondrous are the Worldscales. These floating landmasses have ranged from being no larger than a moon to covering nearly a tenth of an Arcana Bahamut. They are what gives the Worldfish its distinct and unique look. They also provide vast amounts of living space for other Subjects. A single Bahamut Worldfish has been known to support populations that shame the most overcrowded of empires. It's not like Worldfish inhabitants are stuck with sub-par living conditions either. Each Worldscale is equipped and maintained to perform as if it was a regular planet, perhaps even better so, despite them being larger than any natural planet to ever exist. Gravitational anomalies are rare, and the ones that do exist are there for aesthetic or beneficial reasons. Landscapes are both rich and lovely, despite only consisting of various shades of blue augmented by black, white, and every silver and grey in between, each hue bearing all sorts of incandescence intensities. Each Worldscale can enter daytime or nighttime by simply requesting that another Worldscale be moved into or out of the way of their light, which is generated seemingly out of nowhere. The underside of each Worldscale may contain its own miniature constellation, casting a subtle and elegant evening glow on those below.

- The immense waterfalls that form at the edges of Worldscale are eternal. No matter how much water pours off the edge, the volume of the oceans remain the same. Even more unusual, there is no draining effect on the oceans themselves until near the very edge of the Worldscale, meaning currents are both stable and localized.

- Worldscales can also be specialized. Some are used for training purposes only, for example.



TRAVEL OVERVIEW

- Despite being obnoxiously large, it's actually much harder to hit an Arcana Bahamut than it sounds. How so? It can move like a regular-sized fish. That is, it can swim through space as if it were a fish of a much smaller size.

- This is perhaps the Bahamut Worldfish's most baffling trait: it can break not only the laws of gravity, but of mass, inertia, momentum, as well as the rules concerning the speed of light. This is evident whenever it performs a darting maneuver, turning on a dime, moving several of its body lengths in the blink of an eye, and yet those inhabiting its Worldscales don't feel so much as a quiver, neither is their passage through time affected.

- Even smashing into another Bahamut, or any other Arcana Subject for that matter, produces no casualty or collateral damage aside a light tremor. Of course, that can't be said for Subjects of the Natura and Machina State, or any other member of a Foreign Faction for that matter. Frightened Bahamuts easily splatter whole star systems on its bulk, and any destruction that may affect Worldscale inhabitants merely absorbed by Arcana Laws from the Empress of Pearl or the many Arcana Barriers in place. To say an enemy fleet would lightly survive a charging Bahamut would be an empty boast at best. In any case, by the time one sees this beast coming, it's already way too late.

- While the Bahamut Worldfish possesses no teleportation abilities, at a cruising speed of 15 ly/s, it can clear a galaxy the size of the Milky Way in a little over two hours.



ATTACK OVERVIEW

- Bahamut Scimitar: A corpulent, glowing blade made of Harm so concentrated that it solidifies, bridging the Physical and Metaphysical planes together. The Harm that the the Bahamut Scimitar is forged out of allows for the infliction of unlimited damage of all sorts at a single touch. Those who are grazed by the Bahamut Scimitar are burned, slashed, crushed, melted, disintegrated, pulverized, psychologically traumatized, and so on, all at once; it cannot be emphasized enough that both damage types and amounts are literally infinite. If it can be considered as 'harmful', then it will be inflicted. This works wonders versus Targets that cannot be destroyed using conventional means. For example, if killing something will only make it stronger, then the Bahamut Scimitar will 'harm' it in such a way that bypasses and negates that aforementioned trait altogether and absolutely. However, close-quarters isn't the only thing this fish can excel at.

- If ever the Arcana Bahamut is ordered to take part in a long-range siege, it can modify its Scimitar into a weapon that is as unusual as it is devastating: the Aye-Aye Hand. The people of Madagascar fear these unusual-looking lemurs because of a superstitious belief that if they point their weird-looking middle finger at someone, then that someone will be marked for death. To Empress Hecate, that superstition was good enough to base a Subject off from. Normally, Arcana Aye-Ayes are anti-personnel specialists, picking off enemies with what can only be assumed to be the most rudely-pronounced death sentence. Using the Aye-Aye's 'Death Mark' ability via Worldfish, however, is nothing short of insane and abusive. If ever the Bahamut Worldfish points an Aye-Aye Hand at a Target Area, even one the size of a galaxy or larger, Death itself will work with the Harm comprising the modified Bahamut Scimitar towards a single objective: Death and Harm, in every sense of the word, will tirelessly ensure all enemies and enemy types are destroyed in the Target Area without fail. Because only the bony, central finger of the Aye-Aye's Hand is capable of unleashing this effect, the other fingers pointing back don't inflict thrice the damage on the Arcana Bahamut and its passengers.

- Various Empress of Pearl Abilities: The power of the Arcana Pantheon within the Empress of Pearl is unknown, but great. Arcing beams of pure magical power can be sent out from the Pearl itself to hex, obliterate or curse whole swathes opponents. Some say there may not even be a Pantheon in the Mother of Pearl, but a fully-fledged Arcana Genie.

- Arcana Myriad: Subjects who dwell on Worldscales can also play the duty of defenders. Boarding parties who (unluckily) manage to get past the swift deaths offered by the Bahamut Scimitar and the Empress of Pearl risk being torn apart by an extremely angry swarm of extremely angry tenants. A single Worldscale can play host to Subjects of every type and tier, and they have a tendency of hopelessly outnumbering any invading force that dares encroach on their home.

- Cosm-Breaker Array: For use within the Yggdrasil Galactic Triumvirate only, like during War Game Sessions. The Cosm-Breaker Array is an unprecedented advancement of Arcana Laws, one that is the equivalent of Empress Hecate blowing a raspberry at the Current Universe and its Laws of Reality, defying it and whoever made it. While regular Arcana Laws substitute themselves in place of, change, and/or eliminate a Physical Law, the Cosm-Breaker Array takes Arcana Laws and spins them into a 'tapestry' that does the same not only to Physical Laws, but to Logical and Trans-Logical Laws. Each of the SHEATHES-10 Monarchs have more than one Asset or Subject that inspires disbelief or terror in the other two. Emperor Vulcan has his Machina Coding Fields. Empress Gaia has her Natura Transcendent Organisms. For Empress Hecate, it's her Arcana Cosm-Breaker Arrays. These 'Magical Circles' can broadcast the most insane effects within their Area of Jurisdiction. Even the most boastful and almighty Beings are no more than ordinary folk in the face of a Cosm-Breaker Array. How does one Reality-Warp when there is no Reality to Warp, and any created Reality immediately falls under the dominion of the Cosm-Breaker Array? How does an army fight when the very 'Vectors' and 'Distances' around them betray their every action? This is why in the face of Emperor Vulcan's overwhelming firepower and resources and Empress Gaia's overwhelming numbers and diversity, Empress Hecate can rally 'Evolutionarily Inferior' and 'Technologically Medieval' forces and still go toe to toe with them.

- In the case of Bahamut Worldfish, they must devote an entire Worldscale to containing and sustaining a Cosm-Breaker Array, and such Worldscales are uninhabitable until repurposed.

- One such Cosm-Breaker Array is the Incarcerem Abyssus Array, which creates an infinite-sized realm of water and instantly imprisons a Target or a Target Group within it. The caveat is that no matter how many Targets are captured this way, they will always end up alone by themselves. Emperor Vulcan and Empress Gaia speculate that this is because there are limitless realms within this realm. Foes that would have survived drowning are hard-pressed to survive the immense pressures being exerted on them. Even those that weather the pressure and lack of oxygen are now condemned to wander an endless ocean. Destroying the place does nothing. If ever that were to happen, the Target/s would simply exit into another water-clogged realm. That is, if the Target/s can even find the time to break out. This ocean may be endless, but it is not lifeless. The are monsters in those deeps that are born and made out of the very water itself. The Incarcerem Abyssus spawns unending amounts of those, and they never cease from trying to destroy outsiders. The Array would have been considered a defense were it not for its range, which has yet to be quantified. Incarcerem Abyssus Arrays have been known to snag Targets from galactic distances away. Their victims are always reported to implode in on themselves, sucked into a Portal generated within their very bodies. To the Target/s in question, the experience is swift: he/she/they black out, and after what seems to be the blink of an eye, find himself/herself/themselves trapped in their new and inescapable home.



DEFENSE OVERVIEW

- Arcana Barrier: Empress Hecate's challenge to the once straightforward weaponry of her colleagues. The concept of the Arcana Barrier is simple: a swirling, flowing mass of 'Magic' that detaches a Subject from the 'mundane' realm. An Arcana Barrier renders those under its protection intangible to anything but Magical means and methods. It's application, however, is nothing short of aggravating. Until they relied on their more heavyweight assets, neither Emperor Vulcan nor Empress Gaia could surmount this defense. The Arcana Barrier simply 'ignored' their attempts, ranging from 'exotic-energy' beams to globs of superacid, all of which simply passed through Subjects behind Arcana Barriers like pebbles through ghosts. Once 'mundane' assets were cast aside, and Machina Voltages and Natura Gemstones were called into play, did the other two Monarch overcome the Arcana Barrier without having to field anything 'magical', which would not be something they have any hold over. Granted, they did so only for Empress Hecate to unveil a more powerful Arcana Barrier, to which the other Monarchs unveiled more potent Excell-Enclosed Reality creations, and so the volleys went on. Obviously, the Arcana Barrier does nothing against Magical Attacks, so everything from spells to enchanted items will slip through completely unhindered.

- In the case of Bahamut Worldfish, the Arcana Bahamut is encased in an Arcana Barrier, as well as each one of its Worldscales.

- Inquisitor Sigil: Enables Empress Hecate to 'instruct' her Cozen to be more 'true to its former self'. That is, it regains the ability to perfectly devour anything 'supernatural'. Regardless of the Magic in question, Cozen can feed on it. However, there are factions whose Magics will display an immunity or resistance to the 'lesser' Cozen used by SHEATHES, whether for no good reason or because their Magics aren't really Magics. In such a case, there is a reason why Empress Hecate specifically labelled Arcana Laws as 'Laws', not 'Aspects': there can be steep penalties for breaking them. The moment an Arcana Law is 'disobeyed', her Subjects infallibly gain massive bonuses against the 'Law-Breaker'. In the case of the Inquisitor Sigil's Arcana Law being broken, Empress Hecate's Subjects are bestowed the ability to use the Magics of the 'Law-Breaker' to empower themselves, at the same time shrugging off any of its harmful or negative effects.

- Inquisitor Sigils on the Bahamut Worldfish are used by the Empress of Pearl, but only sparingly. Empress Hecate does risk them turning on her Subjects; even if they aren't genuinely Magical, the Cozen of an Inquisitor Sigil will not discern that, neither will it be merciful.

- Phoenix Sigil: If the Arcana State seems gimmicky and riddled with 'tacky' powers and characteristics, it is because on the 'mundane' level, it is extremely delicate. This can be conveyed via an analogy of a Wizard versus a Panzer Tank. By itself, a Wizard is a soft, squishy thing. It risks death by so much as tripping and cracking its head open on an ill-placed rock. It terms of raw and regular parameters, all the Panzer Tank would need to do is run over the Wizard. But when special abilities come into play, the Panzer Tank is in for a serious fight. Before it can fire a single shot from its main cannon, there is the possibility that it has plunged into a chasm opened by the Wizard, or shrunk down to a fraction of its size. This can be observed further in the genres of Fantasy and Science-Fiction. Foot Soldiers are going to do nothing against Robotic Armies with Directed-Energy Weapons. But when said Foot Soldiers can be turned into immortal, indestructible heroes by being bathed within the River Styx, a clash becomes less one-sided. On the same premise, Empress Hecate's Elven Longboats would normally meet their demise by being dashed onto a cliff via unfavorable weather. But, swathed in Spells and Enchantments, mere 'wooden boats' become capable of space-faring shenanigans, able to give the most high-tech interceptors a run for their money. The Phoenix Sigil only sweetens the gestalt of the Arcana State. It is wasted on more sizable, or more Advanced, or more expensive Subjects; the higher the Tier of a Subject, the longer its resurrection time is, despite such a thing being free of charge. However, this Sigil allows Basic Tier and Fodder Tier Subjects to engage more aggressively and fearlessly, continuing to be a threat for longer, not just because they can return to the fray, but because they return having learned from their experiences and mistakes, which is something the Colletic Coding can fail at. They can be gifted to other factions if they are packaged in a Territory Bubble created by Boss 'Patrons'. More often than not, other factions do not use the exotic, gimmicky assets of SHEATHES-10, and as such, more 'mundane' users of the Phoenix Sigil will be revived much faster than a SHEATHES-10 Subject.

- In the case of Bahamut Worldfish, a collection Phoenix Sigil is applied to the Arcana Bahamut and its Worldscales, and a second collection is applied to the Empress of Pearl. Normally, the resurrection of a Bahamut Worldfish would take eons, but by reviving the Empress of Pearl first, it can deploy Time-Manipulation Enchantments to speed up the process on the Bahamut. Returning a whole Worldfish to Arcana Ranks in light of this tactic lasts one year, on average.

- Cosm-Breaker Array: For use within the Yggdrasil Galactic Triumvirate only, like during War Game Sessions. The Cosm-Breaker Array is an unprecedented advancement of Arcana Laws, one that is the equivalent of Empress Hecate blowing a raspberry at the Current Universe and its Laws of Reality, defying it and whoever made it. While regular Arcana Laws substitute themselves in place of, change, and/or eliminate a Physical Law, the Cosm-Breaker Array takes Arcana Laws and spins them into a 'tapestry' that does the same not only to Physical Laws, but to Logical and Trans-Logical Laws. Each of the SHEATHES-10 Monarchs have more than one Asset or Subject that inspires disbelief or terror in the other two. Emperor Vulcan has his Machina Coding Fields. Empress Gaia has her Natura Transcendent Organisms. For Empress Hecate, it's her Arcana Cosm-Breaker Arrays. These 'Magical Circles' can broadcast the most insane effects within their Area of Jurisdiction. Even the most boastful and almighty Beings are no more than ordinary folk in the face of a Cosm-Breaker Array. How does one Reality-Warp when there is no Reality to Warp, and any created Reality immediately falls under the dominion of the Cosm-Breaker Array? How does an army fight when the very 'Vectors' and 'Distances' around them betray their every action? This is why in the face of Emperor Vulcan's overwhelming firepower and resources and Empress Gaia's overwhelming numbers and diversity, Empress Hecate can rally 'Evolutionarily Inferior' and 'Technologically Medieval' forces and still go toe to toe with them.

- In the case of Bahamut Worldfish, they must devote an entire Worldscale to containing and sustaining a Cosm-Breaker Array, and such Worldscales are uninhabitable until repurposed.

- One such Cosm-Breaker Array is the Iniustum Aeternum Array, which creates a disruption in cause and effect between the Arcana Bahamut and a Target Group or a Target Unit. As long as the Arcana Bahamut has not inflicted any damage upon the Target/s, it cannot receive any form of damage from said Target/s in return. However, were any sort of injury to be inflicted on the Arcana Bahamut from a third party, allied or enemy, it can instantly and freely transfer that injury to the Target/s. The kicker is that it can transfer more than one instance of that damage to the Target/s, meaning if the Arcana Bahamut receives a gunshot wound from any source other than the Target/s, it can keep inflicting gunshot wounds on the Target/s, and it can do that without any time limits whatsoever. Furthermore, third-party injuries are not considered as coming from the Arcana Bahamut by the Iniustum Aeternum Array. Note: Iniustum Aeternum Arrays can exist as smaller Arrays. However, as a Cosm-Breaker Array, their potency is boosted to unimaginable levels, and those who would have normally been safe from it in its lesser form (like Cosmic Beings) are now free game.



EMPLOYMENT OVERVIEW

- Bahamut Worldfish have two uses. They can be deployed as mobile Starbases that double as heavily-armed Carriers, and they can also play the part of a five-star tour bus.

- Their offensive role is to provide both heavy firepower and a never-ending supply of Subjects. Since they need to be in melee range (in a matter of speaking) to use their Bahamut Scimitars, they are able to soak up damage for other Arcana Subjects. They can also rescue wounded survivors by running into them; the Empress of Pearl simply catches allied Subjects that the Bahamut Worldfish collides with and transports them into an available Worldscale. Concerning a Worldfish's ability to manufacture additional forces, while Empress Hecate can Manifest Subjects in the Yggdrasil Galactic Triumvirate with ease, Subjects that form other Subjects make turn that ease into effortlessness. It's like breathing: one can consciously make efforts to breathe, but such a task can be left to the subconscious, allowing the mind to focus on other matters. In War Games, Bahamut Worldfish enable Empress Hecate to maintain a large attack force while devoting more of her attention to tactics and trash-talking.

- Their recreational role is something Empress Hecate prefers using over their offensive role. The Bahamut in Arabian Mythos was the Earth's chauffeur, and despite Arcana Bahamuts being modified into warriors, they are more than content to bear folks on their bodies just for the sake of it. Worldfish that have been tailored to serve as over-sized limousines are equipped to customize their Worldscales to whatever their passengers (usually from Foreign Factions who wish to see the outskirts of the Yggdrasil Galactic Triumvirate) might need. Certain species, for example, prefer a nitrogen-based atmosphere over an oxygen-based one.

- Due to their titanic constitution, Bahamut Worldfish are scarce in numbers compared to most Subjects, but that's really not saying much. While it's true that the standing forces in the Yggdrasil Galactic Triumvirate number in the quadrillions, meaning there will be an average of 91 Bahamut Worldfish to cater to those of the Arcana State, that's not the case with War Games or Internal Reserves. Nowadays, normal War Game Sessions see individual Monarchs throwing over a decillion Subjects at each other in a furious attempt to prove which one of the three is superior. The amount of Worldfish that can be involved in a clash of that magnitude would number in the tens of thousands, at the very least.

- There are also rumors that Empress Hecate has finally managed to make good on her 12-year-old self's original design...



VARIANT OVERVIEW

- Mandatory Emissary Note: It is tradition for 'Watchers' to document a variant of a Subject from it's Sibling-SHEATHES, if one exists. Despite their close bond, however, Sibling-SHEATHES are unable to exchange Subjects. Any Monarchs who have 'Lesser Numbers' risk dying from overexertion if attempting to accept a Subject from a 'Higher Number' Monarch. Any Monarchs who have 'Higher Numbers' are guaranteed to crush a Subject from a 'Lesser Number' Monarch in the 'grip' of their Authority. No exceptions. 'Higher Number' Monarchs cannot reinforce 'Lesser Number' Monarchs with Subjects. 'Lesser Number' Monarchs cannot evacuate Subjects into the SHEATHES of 'Higher Number' Monarchs. No 'Equal Numbers' exist for SHEATHES. All data contained herein applies to SHEATHES-10 and SHEATHES-700 only.

- SHEATHES-700's Bahamut Worldshark functions pretty much the same way, except for the size difference. An ocean that could contain all the Worldfish Empress Hecate has owned (and does own, and will ever own) placed in the nostril of a Worldshark would be like a mustard seed laid in the middle of the desert.
