Graphite Edge Edit
«Twin Swords» - his skills in close combat are equal or even superior to Black Lotus, despite his defenses which are fragile. True to his namesake, his defense is so weak that even Ardor Maiden could defeat him in close combat. Both of his swords are made of Hyper Diamond, the hardest material in Accel World. But durability of his swords allow him to block almost any physical attack including Lotus' all-cutting slashes, so that's the reason behind a nickname «Anomaly».
