Principles

While part of the greater whole of the Theocracy, the Black Scripture has its own separate culture that reflects the edicts of their patron god. By the laws dictated by their God, someone over the age of twenty will be considered an adult in Slane Theocracy. Thus, when the junior Black Scripture members go out on missions, they would wear magical masks to conjure a fake face.

Strength

The Black Scripture is the strongest of the Six Scriptures and consists of members who have reached human physical limits and possesses heroic level strength. Furthermore, the Black Scripture is the strongest of all combat group's working within the Slane Theocracy. Unlike the other Scriptures, each of its members focus on a specific type of combat or skill and is comparable to a whole combat group. They will usually carry out their missions alone, but will still work together if ordered by their captain.

The highest ranking and strongest members of the Black Scripture are thought to be demigods because of their immense powers and the fact that the blood of the Six Gods runs in them. Upon meeting them, Shalltear Bloodfallen estimated the strength of their group's leader to be superior to Solution Epsilon, a member of the Pleiades. The cardinals stated that the Black Scripture are like adamantite-ranked adventurers and considered to be their final ace of the hole, a special forces unit composed of heroes.

According to Shalltear, their panoply of equipment was not simple and functional, but are as decorative and unique as her own equipment. Going by her gut feeling since Shalltear didn't have any skills to discern the power of magic items, she figured that those items they're equipped with are quite potent at a glance. She felt that their magic items might be of legendary-class or above. Additionally, the Black Scripture are able to conduct a grand ritual to summon the highest-ranked angel in case their group's strength weren't enough to eliminate a threat.
