|“||I am the demise who comes from the distant summit, the one who splits earth and sky with two blades. My name is Twin-Wings Edelweiss. Childish lad, you will learn how wide this world is.||„|
|~ Edelweiss to Ikki|
Edelweiss is the number one ranking Blazer in the world and the strongest swordswoman in the world. She is considered to be the worst criminal, whose capture is abandoned due to her strength.
Powers and Stats
Tier: At least High 6-B, likely higher
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Blazer Physiology, Sword Mastery, Expert Martial Artist, Body Control (Edelweiss has flawless control over her whole body as well as its workings, being able to invent her own swordsmanship, which involves changing her body's nerve signals and move all of her muscles instantaneously, allowing her to reach top speed without accelerating), Information Analysis (Understood every information from Ikki's group with a single glance), Accelerated Development (Grows at speeds far exceeding even Ikki or Stella, who, as stated during the SSSAF arc, developed several decades in an instant), Energy Control (Her sword strikes are absolutely silent because no energy is lost during the attack), Durability Negation (Fully countered Ikki's Dokuga No Tachi with a similar technique but far more powerful), Limited Air Manipulation (Her strikes are so fast they create a vacuum inflicing wounds to her foes, she supposedly can use the ground the send the same vibrations), Law Manipulation (Testament gives her the ability to make contracts called Rule of Grace, forcing people to comply to certain rules, if the rules are broken it will bring about instant death. It is an ability on the causation magic system, but it can affect fellow Desperados. However the combat effectiveness of this ability is not the best due to the opponent having to make a promise in front of her for the ability to take effect), Desperado Awakening, Resistance to all Desperado abilities (Due to being the Desperado with the strongest gravitational pull of fate, she can affect other Desperados with her traits, but the opposite cannot happen), Information Analysis (Stella and Ikki couldn't even see where her center of gravity was)
Attack Potency: At least Large Country level, likely higher (As the strongest swordsman in the world, she is vastly superior to Stella Vermillion and Ikki Kurogane. Kurono Shinguuji and Nene Saikyou, who were confident they could stop a full power fight between Ikki and Stella, both knew they could not win against Edelweiss. Only considered Stella a worthy rival after she achieved Desperado awakening)
Speed: Massively FTL+ (Easily overwhelmed Ikki's Ittou Shura. Could easily follow the fight between Ikki and Dragon Spirit Stella. Superior to Nene). Seems many times faster than she actually is due to her Sword Style
Lifting Strength: Class P (Superior to Nene)
Striking Strength: At least Large Country Class, likely higher
Durability: At least Large Country level, likely higher
Stamina: Extremely high (Was not even tired by the end of her duel with Ikki)
Range: Extended melee range. Several kilometers with aura.
Standard Equipment: Testament, Edelweiss's Device which takes the form of a pair of wing-like swords
Intelligence: As the strongest swordsman she is well versed as a close-combat magic user as well as tactician. Stella stated that her natural stance and lack of gaps is far superior to the likes of Ikki. She has likely comparable magic control to Shizuku Kurogane.
Weaknesses: Her main Noble Art requires both parties to agree to requirements. For instance if Edelweiss demands something of an opponent the opponent must agree to this demand essentially making a promise in front of her for the contract to form.
