Divine Summoning (神威召喚 Shin'i Shōkan , God's Power Summoning) is the term to call the ceremony of summoning the true Gods of Crimson Realm through sacrifice or compensation. It is not totally revealed whether this ceremony is another type of the Power of Unrestraint or not.
Background and UsageEdit
The Divine Summoning concerns the summoner paying their compensation or sacrificing something to call out the Gods (or activate his powers). The Gods have their own way of summoning; Alastor uses nearby Crimson Denizens (whether their agreement or not) as the sacrifice, the Snake of the Festival and Shaher uses their servants.
At the beginning, these ceremonies are for summoning their respected Gods, but Crimson Lords of the ancient time who fears of the great catastrophe from Crimson Denizen's rampage in the world, adjusts the ceremony to become usable with them. The humans who have grudges against Denizens will use this ceremony to summon the Lords by sacrificing their existence as the price to become the vessel for summoned Crimson Lords through this ritual thus become known as Flame Haze. Although, these ceremony are not the real Divine Summoning that calls the true Gods.
List of Divine SummoningEdit
Below is the list of Divine Summoning revealed in the story so far.
Tenpa Jōsai (天破壌砕 Heaven Destruction Earth Break ) : The most renowned Divine Summoning in the series which is the ceremony to summon Alastor, the true Crimson God who have the authorities over "Judgement" and "Conviction". This ceremony was first performed by Mathilde Saint-Omer as the mean to stop Asiz's Grand Scheme during the Great War. In that time, Jarri was the sacrifice for this Divine Summoning against his will. Only Alastor's ceremony seems to have a chant during summoning.
Saiki Reisō (祭基礼創 Ritual-grounding, Ceremony-creation ) : The ceremony to summon the Snake of the Festival's authentic powers over "Creation" and "Settlement" to create thing. This ceremony is performed during the final phase of creating Xanadu, the Denizen Paradise. The compensation of the summoning is the Priestess of the Trinity, Hecate.
In the Snake of the Festival's case, it's not called "Divine Summoning/God's Power Summoning" but rather "God's Power Recalling" (神威召還 Shin'i Shōkan ) which has the same pronunciation in Japanese.
Shōhi Ginsei (嘯飛吟声 Scattering Roar, Chanting Voice ) : The distinctive ceremony performed more than other Divine Summoning. The ceremony is to summon Shaher's voice which is sent to every single person involving the Crimson Realm; Flame Haze and Denizens alike. This voice cannot be blocked meaning everyone will know about the news Shaher announced. The news she had announced includes How to crosses the Rift, existence of the Treasure Tool, Spell to take human shape and Flame Haze's creation. Shaher will be summoned through sacrifice of her designated servants who roam the world searching the new thing which has to be informed to everyone.
In the Shaher's case, it's not called "Divine Summoning" but rather "Divine Will Recalling" (神意召還 Shin'i Shōkan ) which has the same pronunciation in Japanese.
- The ceremony's name is the usage of the God's true names: Alastor's "Ten"pa "Jō"sai from his name, Tenjō no Gōka (Flame of Heaven and Earth); Snake of the Festival's "Sai"ki "Rei"sō from his name, Sairei no Hebi; Shaher's "Shō"hi "Gin"sei from her name, Kaku no Shōgin.
