|Madō Ring Zaruba|
Description & CharacteristicsEdit
In the on-going conflict against horrors, Makai Priests have designed tools that allows them to detect Horrors and forecast other unforeseeable potential threats. Unfortunately, Makai Knights lack the sufficient level of training, knowledge, and wisdom that a priest would have, limiting their survival and self-efficiency. To remedy this problem, the priests crafted the magical tools to help the knights in their missions.
One type of madōgu are sentient Gothic jewelry (ring, necklace, bracelet, mirror, etc). They can independently speak and can voice their own opinions to the knight. They're essentially portable magical tools that has many abilities similar to a priest. Each Madougu has its own unique capabilities, personality, and powers. Because no two madōgus are exactly alike, it's difficult to give a proper definition of its capabilities. However, all madōgu have several common abilities they share: dark energy detection, Horror sensor, provides wisdom, and knowledge to its wearer. With it, a knight can operate with greater independence and without the constant referral to a priest during their missions.
Certain animals, even human, have special abilities that are valuable to the Makai Order and are classified as magical tools. Because of how makai society view tools, they are considered an end to a means and not treated with the greatest respect. The Barg is a unique makai beast that can seal Horrors and dark energies away. As such, Makai Knights would intentionally stab the creature so it can cleanse dark energies away, but leaving the creature in agony. Mayuri's unique ability to seal any dark being like a walking darkness vault made her invaluable in sealing dark entities that were beyond conventional means, but she was also mistreated and not considered human. As such, animals deemed as magical tools have an unfortunate life under the will of the Makai Order.
In the Ryūga-verse, madōgus are classified in a similar manner. In a wider inclusion, madōgus includes advanced synthetic magical tools that mimics animals or even a human-like warrior. Madō Ring Zaruba is grouped up along the likes of Rago and Agō as part of this class. Even so, madōgus has fallen out of fashion amongst the knights and priests. They are more or less treated as relics from a bygone era, as Makai Knight Zen reacted with curiosity and wonder over never seeing a sentient madōgu. This is likely motivated due to the fact such ancient tools requires a contract with its user in exchange for shortening their life.
