The Spirit Spear Basquias「霊槍バスキアス, Reisō Basukiasu」 is a legendary spear granted to Gloxinia, the first Fairy King to be chosen by the Sacred Tree.[1]

Appearance

Basquias has ten forms, but is most commonly seen in the form of green octopus-like limbs wrapping around the user's body. It currently shows signs of black coloring at its tips, symbolizing the demonic corruption of the holy weapon of the Fairy Clan.

In its authentic form, it is a spear of immense size, as much as Chastiefol in its true form. This after the blade has a half circle.

Abilities

Basquias is an immensely powerful weapon, possibly even more so than its counterpart, Chastiefol. Like Chastiefol, it has the qualities of the Sacred Tree and is shown to possess a number of unique forms:

  • Form One: Basquias「第一形態: 霊槍バスキアスDai-ichi Keitai: Basukiasu; literally meaning "Spirit Spear"」: It is the original form of Basquias, which is a great spear that can levitate to attack and also proves to be capable of firing a powerful beam.[2]
  • Form Two: Guardian「第二形態: 守護虫ガーディアンDai-ni Keitai: Gādian; literally meaning "Guardian Insect"」: Basquias takes the form of a gigantic hornet-like insect that possesses incredible speed.[3]
    • Necrosis壊死毒ネクロシスNekuroshisu; literally "Necrotic Poison"」: Basquias attacks the target with its sting, resulting in the stung body part being paralyzed.[4]
  • Form Five: Yggdra Armor「第五形態: 神樹の鎧ユグドラ・アーマーDai-go Keitai: Yugudora Āmā; literally meaning "God Tree Armor"」: Basquias wraps itself around Gloxinia and forms a suit of armor equipped with large sharp claws.[5]
  • Form Seven: Moon Rose「第七形態: 月の華ムーンローズDai-nana Keitai: Mūn Rōzu; literally "Moon Flower"」: The end of Basquias' tendril blooms into a giant, pale rose.[6]
    • Inochi no Shizuku生命いのちしずくInochi no Shizuku; literally "Droplet of Life"」: A droplet from the Moon Rose is shown to heal even the most grievous of wounds.[7] Gloxinia can only use this technique a certain number of times in a row, after which it cannot be used again for a while.
  • Form Nine: Death Thorn「第九形態: デスソーンDai-kyū Keitai: Desu Sōn」: Basquias disperses into a myriad of vines, piercing through anything Gloxinia chooses. Even the slightest cut seems to result in death. The ivy is traditionally extracted from within a sun flower that grows among the highest branches of the Sacred Tree.[8]
  • Form Ten: Emerald Octo「第十形態: 翠蛸エメラルドオクトDai-jū Keitai: Emerarudo Okuto; literally "Green Octopus"」: The form Basquias usually found and is used by Gloxinia as a means to sustain themselves. These tentacles can be used as weapons that can cross objects or people.[9]
