- Sorcerous Stabber Orphen: Spell Lists

 It's worth noting that my spell translations may be quite off. For one thing, I've dropped the yee-old English that was used in the other English translations (like the subtitles) because I just didn't see evidence of it in most of the original Japanese text. I also switch the order that it's written/spoken in, sometimes, if it reads better the other way. Usually because the spell often gets spoken in two parts, and I want to keep the incantation syntax relatively consistent.

 This list was more for my own reference, and I come back quite a bit to change how things are written.

- Spell List

"At my fingertips, a shield of amber!"

Original: 「我が指先に琥珀の盾!」
Known Casters: Orphen
 The Shield of Amber cures the air within a small vicinity. In this field individuals have a hard time moving, as if slowed by a thick substance. It's not an actual trap, but can be set as one by unexpectedly slowing an oncoming target.

"By our contract, end the holy war!"

Known Casters: Orphen
 A several step, and deadly powerful spell. An air current erupts around the caster, the charged atmosphere condensing into a lightning bolt. Once it's fired, it disappears into the target's body, and seconds later they're blown to pieces. This isn't the end, though. Once the pieces are scattered around the area, they get sucked back towards the center of where the spell landed. Condensing into a tiny space until it disappears entirely.

"Blow Them Away!"

Original: 吹き飛べ
Known Casters: Kozen
 A spell that fires a lightning bolt in a straight line, presumeably to destroy the target. At a later point, he also cast this spell under the classy incantation of "Eat Shit!"

"Come Back."

Original: もどれ
Known Casters: Orphen
 This spell levitates an object back to the person who threw it, and suspends it in the air by them, to be flung again with sorcery.

"Continuous Eclipse!"

Known Casters: Orphen
 Creates heat waves in rapid succession, powerful enough to make the atmosphere around the caster tremble. The air becomes charged with energy as they fire.


Known Casters: Hartia
 Surrounds the target in utter darkness, to a point that no light can pass through. This spell isn't typically a large one, and running a few steps is usually enough to get out of it. Hartia is noted to cast it with better capability, however, so that it isn't as easily avoided.


Known Casters: Azalie, Childman
 This is a vicious spell that solidifies the atmosphere, crushing everything within its field. It's noted to cause depressions in the ground a few centimeters deep, creating a shimmering on objects affected. The pressure will inevitably collapse whatever stands in its area of effect. The effects are deadly.

"Demon Sword of Puanuuk!"

Original: 「プアヌークの魔剣よ!」
Known Casters: Hydrant
 With a loud whooshing sound, this photothermal wave spell is capable of great harm. In one instance it completely removed a man's head when it came in contact.


Original: 「死ね」
Known Casters: Vinvi Stottaul
 An explosive spell, though its exact effects are unknown.


Original: 「消えろ……」
Known Casters: Vinvi Stottaul
 A spell used to extinguish flames. It's accompanied by the sound of a thread being pulled taught, and then cut. This spell is highly effective against fire, not just removing the flames themselves, but instantly removing their heat from the surrounding area.


Original: 「炎よ!」
Known Casters: Hartia
 This spell creates a torrent of fire.

Get Lost!

Original: 「炎よ!」
Known Casters: Kozen
 This spell that was used by Kozen to extinguish fire in a puff of smoke.

"Guide me, Deathcry Starling!"

Original: 「我導くは死呼ぶ椋鳥!」
Known Casters: Orphen
 Creates ultrasonic sound waves. These form into air blades that rapidly slice and dice an opponent. Fragile items like fabrics can be reduced to dust by this spell.


Original: 「治れ!」
Known Casters: Vinvi
 A powerful healing spell that will rewrap even severe wounds in flesh and skin. Vinvi used this to close the wound on his right arm after his hand was torn off.

"I bestow, the fortune of the giants!"

Known Casters: Orphen
 Causes an object to unnaturally swell. For example, it is used on a door to make it swell up so much that it gets stuck in the doorframe and can't be opened or knocked down.

"I brandish, the sword of the devil!"

Original: 「我掲げるは降魔の剣!」
Known Casters: Orphen
 Creates an invisible sword. This sword shows a visible weight shift in the hand of the caster, and is sharp enough to cut like any real blade would.

"I breath, the flowing angel!"

Original: 「我は流す天使の息吹!」
Known Casters: Orphen
 Generates an upwards gust of wind intended to blow enemies back, rather than slice them up.

"I break, the primordial silence!"

Known Casters: Orphen
 This spell creates a heavy distortion in space itself, which in the aftermath creates a powerful explosion. This explosion is large enough to destroy entire houses.

"I bring forth, a tiny spirit!"

Original: 「我は生む小さき精霊」
Known Casters: Orphen, Majic
 Creates a will-o-wisp the size of a fist, which is used to illuminate an area. The orb can be moved around as needed. Its vibrancy can also be increased, but this dramatically shortens its lifespan.

"I build, the spires of the sun!"

Known Casters: Orphen
 Generates pillars of fire over a set target, usually a person. Or a troll.

"I call, upon the sisters of destruction!"

Original: 「我は呼ぶ破裂の姉妹!」
Known Casters: Orphen
 Their caster slams their hand into the ground, and shockwaves erupt in all directions. (This spell should technically end in 'Rupture' or 'Burst' but I couldn't find a good way to translate that.)

"I close, the edges of the boundary!"

Known Casters: Orphen
 Seals an entry way. For example, closing a door and making it stick.

"I dance, among the towers of heaven!"

Original: 「我は踊る天の楼閣」
Known Casters: Orphen
 This spell allows for a sudden jump of several meters. Used primarily for quick escapes. Orphen notes that it's difficult to transition long distances, and just under 10 meters was a personal best as of Volume 3. In Volume 4, he mentions that the success rate of spacial transitioning is extremely low, even when used by the most skilled of sorcerers only attempting to move 10 meters. If that distance is doubled to 20, the success rate drops to a few percent. If attempting to reach the end of your casting range (as far as your voice can reach) the odds of success are less than 1%. Even so, the spell can be used not just for moving from one place to another, but also to reorientate the caster. Such as, if standing side by side, turning the caster to face directly towards their enemy.

"I dismiss, the dancing shrew!"

Known Casters: Orphen
 Begins with a loud crack, and follows by extinguishing the magic that's taking place around the individual. Notably to be used to dispell magic fire. Also written with 'Restrain' instead of 'Dismiss.'

"I disturb, the light rays of the cage!"

Known Casters: Majic
 Distorts light over a large area. It can be used to compensate for blind spots, or to prevent an enemy from seeing your exact location.

"I erase, the footsteps of the devil!"

Original: 「我は消す、魔神の足跡!」
Known Casters: Orphen
 This spell returns things to the way that they should be, by collapsing the parameters of a spell (described to be like broken glass.) It breaks away until the spell itself is gone. Was used to eliminate the darkness of the spell 'Dark.'

"I fire, the lightbolt magic bullet!"

Original: 「我は射つ光靂の魔弾!」
Known Casters: Orphen
 This forms a bullet of light.

"I heal, the scars of the setting sun!"

Original: 「我は癒す斜陽の傷痕」
Known Casters: Orphen
 Reverts damaged objects back to their original form. This isn't perfect, and for something that's completely destroyed will still leave marks.

"I release, the Sword of Light!"

Original: 「我は放つ光の白刃!」
Known Casters: Orphen
 This spell creates a highly destructive wave of photothermal energy. This takes the form of a white band of light that's often strong enough to destroy doors and walls, and with enough power it can set things ablaze.

* In the anime this is translated as 'Sword of Light, whom I do release!' I switched it around because most of the time that the spell is split in half, the 'I release' part comes first. This is more a matter of Japanese sentence structure, but it reads better this way, IMO.

"I repel, the hail of glass!"

Original: 「我は弾くガラスの雹—」
Known Casters: Orphen
 With the sound of a snap the target is sent flying backwards several meters.

"I run, along the heavenly mountain peaks!"

Known Casters: Orphen
 Temporarily releases the gravitational hold. This can allow a person to jump several stories high, or to float in the air for quite some time. However, they must keep their focus, because if they don't, they may lose their balance and fall.

"I see, the princess of chaos!"

Known Casters: Orphen
 Generates a well of super gravity, accompanied by a swirling, black vortex. This has the power to crush stone, even something as large as a megalith infantry, so it's nothing to trifle with.

"I tear open, the walls of the sky!"

Original: 「我は裂く大空の壁!」
Known Casters: Orphen
 Creates a sharp vacuum in a specific spot. The powerful wind that is drawn towards this vacuum explodes against the target behind it. This force can throw a person quite far, and is strong enough to break medium sized branches.

"I spin, the armor of our halo!"

Original: 「我は紡ぐ光輪の鎧!」
Known Casters: Azalie, Childman, Majic, Orphen
 More literally, "I spin, halo armor!" but stylized here. Generates a netting of circular lights, which act as a shield. This can deter powerful magic, even fire, but when each ring breaks it can allow spells to pass through part of the net. These halos also generate a great deal of heat, and can literally cook the flesh of something that gets stuck against the net for too long. This technicality has been used to spring a trap on enemies charging into close range.

"I tread, through the gate uninvited!"

Original: 「我招かれる踏まれざる門」
Known Casters: Orphen
 If the caster understands the mechanisms of the lock in place, they can unlock it without needing a key.


Original: 「明かりを」
Known Casters: Azalie
 Creates a small sphere of illumination. This can be cast away from the caster (in Azalie's case, cast in the middle of a small pond) and visually, it sheds light particles as it burns.

"In my left hand, an image of the netherworld!"

Known Casters: Orphen
 A collapsing magic that's capable of destroying even megalith infantry sized objects.


Known Casters: Childman, Orphen
 Creates a powerful, invisible blast. The pressure is enough to launch a grown man across the room.


Original: 「光よ!」
Known Casters: Azalie, Childman, Forte
 This spell forms a V-shaped arrow of light, which launches at the target. When it hits, it explodes into flames that rapidly engulf them, focusing the destructive power of the spell all around the target. When Forte casts this spell, it doesn't mention the flames and explosions, but a brilliant light that strikes the target. His casting sounds like a stone striking a tree.


Original: 「稲妻よ!」
Known Casters: Hartia
 Self explanatory, a powerful lightning bolt created from magic.


Original: 「溶けろ!」
Known Casters: Vinvi
 This spell, presumeably a heat spell, was almost used by Vinvi but he was wounded by Leki before he could complete the composition, so its effects are unknown.

"Mirror of Tamankama!"

Original: 「タマンカマの鏡よ!」
Known Casters: Hydrant
 This mirror spell creates a magical barrier that can block even strong spells like the Sword of Light.


Original: 「開け!」
Known Casters: Kozen
 This spell creates the sound of the crunching of fresh powdery snow shortly before a massive gash is opened up in the target. This can be a huge wound, in Kozen's case, using it to tear the target open from the shoulder to the opposite side, spilling blood for the force of a bucket of water.

"Place your child, within my arms!"

Original: 「我が腕に、入れよ子ら!」
Known Casters: Orphen
 This spell breaks the fall of an individual, ensuring a safe, gentle landing.


Original: 「明かりを」
Known Casters: Vinvi
 Like many other light spells, Shine creates a glowing orb that illuminates the surrounding area.


Original: 「剣よ」
Known Casters: Suaine
 A photothermal wave spell.

"Yaslan's Coffin!"

Original: 「ヤスランの棺よ!」
Known Casters: Hydrant
 Yaslan's Coffin creates a field of compression around a given area. Everything from glass to stone is condensed within this space, though it takes several seconds, leaving room to counter.

- Silence Majic

Silence Majic has no incantation, so these aren't real names. It is written with characters that are placed on an object.

 A - Mind Deterioration; cast by the Killing Doll
 Those afflicted begin to move under the caster's control. Soon their mind fills with a pure white light, and deteriorates until they stare off into empty space. Mindless until they receive orders.

 B - Megalith Infantry; cast by the Killing Doll
 A character is written on a cloth, and placed upon a Megalith Infantry (giant golem.) It then gains the power to move, with the ability to follow orders. The caster than make another individual the commander of these golems, who can then defer command to yet again, someone else. They have no special abilities but are still quite strong.

 C - Tornado; cast by the Killing Doll
 Generates a tornado that is actually closer to several nested tornados flowing among one another. The force generated by this wind is enough to bend steel frames like straw, and causes massive destruction from the rapid flinging of debris.

 D - Rumble; cast by the Killing Doll
 Fills the air with a loud rumbling. This noise becomes so overpowering that it erases the voices of those within the effected field. Since voice magic cannot reach further than the caster's voice, it effectively renders their magic useless.
