The Pinion (ピニオン Pinion?) are Rinne created by "One-Indulged-in-Love-for-Others" Tiriel to embed humans with Unrestricted Spells.


They are usually disguised as humans but a Pinion's true appearance is of a huge flower.




Tiriel spreads the Pinion all over Misaki City and activates its Unrestricted Spell to trap Shana. Yūji Sakai is able to sense them and together with Margery Daw, he destroys them all.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

The Pinion carry the essence of Tiriel's existence and port it to others. Tiriel can then give them orders, such as attacks using giant ivy. The Pinion have to be spread over a designated area for Tiriel to use Cradle Garden. The Power of Existence that they absorb from their surroundings are given to the Aizen Siblings. This is Tiriel's way of maintaining control during battles. They also allow for Tiriel to undergo long-distance communication with others and can blow up as a trap for opponents.

The Pinion are easily produced and versatile, a source of Tiriel's strength.

A Pinion which is concealed would normally be undetectable to a skilled Flame Haze or Crimson Denizen, Yūji Sakai was able to detect them.
