Spirits are extraterrestrial beings and cosmic entities from another dimension or another alternative reality. The Spirits were created in the Tree of Life. They are made with Sephira Crystals by an unknown being.

These spacequakes are usually involuntary, but they can also cause spacequakes voluntarily, as Kurumi, Kotori and Miku have shown. Each Spirit has a numerical kanji in their name.

They also each possess an Astral Dress as well as an Angel, which are respectively named after the Divine Names of the Sephirot of the Tree of Life Kabbalah corresponding to the numerical kanji in their names, and the archangels governing the corresponding Sephirot. Each Spirit has a unique ability, and each displays different levels of knowledge about Earth. When a human is exposed to a crystal, they receive whatever power the crystal stores inside. Giving a Sephira Crystal to Kotori and Miku is how Phantom turned them into Spirits.

Powers and Abilities

Each individual Spirit has their own unique powers and abilities as well as the amount of "Mana" they hold within their bodies. However, all Spirits have the common feature ability of creating their own Astral Dress, as well having an Angel.


The absolute shield that protects the Spirits; the form, the shape and even its function all reflect on the Spirits itself. Angels can take many forms, from monsters to swords, or humanoids.

Astral Dress

Astral Dress or raiment is the Spirits' armor or clothing created by their power. Spirits can change it to whatever shape, color, style, or appearance they want.

Demon King

The Spirits in their primary armament while in their inverse form. They are described to be the inverse form, or darker and evil versions, of their angels.

Sephira Crystal

The Sephira Crystal is a mysterious round orb like gem, that, according to Sir Isaac Ray Peram Westcott, all Spirits carry within themselves and is seemingly the source of their powers. When a human touches the gem, the gem is then seemingly absorbed into whoever touches it and transforms that person into a Spirit.
