|Downfall of Castle and Country|
Downfall of Castle and Country is a mind-controlling World Item.
A World Item that once belonged to the fabled Six Gods of the Slane Theocracy. After their passing, the artifact was passed down through the ages to the ownership Kaire of the Black Scripture. Recently it was used in a botched-attempt to mind-control Shalltear Bloodfallen. The magic of the World Item activated successfully, however the user was killed rendering the mind-control incomplete. According to the Captain of the Black Scripture the dress was damaged but still usable.
The item resembles a cheongsam, a body-hugging one-piece Chinese dress. It has the color of silvery white, with the image of a five-clawed dragon soaring to the skies stitched in gold thread.
This dress allows the user to subjugate the mind of any creature, even those that possess racial immunity to mind-control. While an impressive artifact, it's mentioned by the Six Cardinals to have flaws. One being a limit on the number of times it can be used to charm a target.
- In the English publication of the Light Novel, its name was translated as Ruinous Beauty.
- Downfall of Castle and Country means a really beautiful woman who can make even a country to fall, like Helen in Trojan war. "Keiseikeikoku" in Japanese pronunciation.
