Commandment: Commandments are the abilities that the people in the first era had. Basically, the exchange of power involves giving away a significant part of oneself, I.E., having a binding whose contents are defined by its user, that grants massive boons (frequent inversions of their binding) if they are followed throughout. Although it's possible for an individual to possess more than one commandment, However, if they break them, a divine punishment will fall upon them, and they will, at best, just die
- Hazah Ruma: The Commandment of Bahlavan, Zariched and Taurvid. In exchange for the binding of "Having no choice but to fight whoever person you meet with one's full power", the boon is "Turning into a perpetual motion machine whose stamina won't dissipate".
- Maurya Aeshma: The one true Commandment of Bahlavan. In exchange for the binding of "Continuing to fight without the dread of loneliness", he gets "Being able to create alter egos not one tiny bit different from oneself" as a boon.
Power of The Ego/Garyoku: special power wielded by high-ranking Daeva. Literally, the ability to forcibly bring about absurd phenomena through the ego's strength. strength of will that transcends the laws of physics. It makes it possible to strengthen physical attributes such as offense and defense, speed, or regeneration power; even actions that twist the world's form become possible. Though it is a supernatural power different from the commandments, the power of the ego and the commandments can be combined to produce synergy. That is, the power of the ego can be used to strengthen commandments. Because it is a power that finds its source in one's prejudices and selfishness, it is not suited for Ashavan. Reversely, the specialty of the side of Good, namely the power to concentrate the thoughts of several people for the sake of another's prayers, is not suited for Dragvant. This is an expression of the differences in acting between the two sides. Currently, the user of the stronger power of the ego is the 3rd rank archdemon, Bahlavan.
Note 1: It's worth mentioning that Bahlavan is the first Gudou Godhood candidate in the whole history of the throne, but he can't reach it solely due to the structure of the current world preventing him from doing so, as such things like Gudou can't come into existence, unless countless/infinite parallel worlds exist.
Note 2: Due to the novel being mostly untranslated and not available for anyone, references and scans were used from the summaries (Credits Goes to Trex for them) so anyone can fast check them for reliability.
