Sunlight Scripture (ようこうせいてん) was one the Six Scriptures of the Slane Theocracy. They were led by Nigun Grid Luin and specialize in the extermination of demi-human villages.


The Sunlight Scripture had been involved in many illegal activities throughout the Re-Estize Kingdom. At one point they were sent to eradicate a demi-human village, but were stopped by Blue Roses, whose leader managed to leave a scar their captain's face. In addition to that, they also operated in the Dragon Kingdom, countering the invading beastmen.

The Sunlight Scripture was given a mission to assassinate Gazef Stronoff, the strongest warrior of the Re-Estize Kingdom. They sent men disguised as knights of the Baharuth Empire to ransack several villages, intending to play on Gazef's honorable nature and lure him out to kill him.

After the attack on Carne Village, Gazef and his subordinates charged at them head on to buy time for the villagers to escape. The Scripture strategically used its summoned angels to kill the Gazef's men and wear him down. Just as victory seemed certain, he suddenly disappeared, only to be replaced by Ainz Ooal Gown and Albedo.

With a brief discussion coming to an end, the Sunlight Scripture first sends two angels to kill him. Cheering at the sight of Ainz being pierced by their swords, the members then become confused when they realized he had not collapsed. After the two angels are destroyed single-handedly with just his bare hands, their leader, Nigun ordered for the rest to swarm Ainz, but this ends in failure as they get caught in his Negative Burst.

Panicking in disbelief, Nigun summons the Principality Observation, but this too is immediately countered in a single blow. Dumbfounded, he accuses the two of being demon gods and proceeds to activate his final trump card - the highest level angel, Dominion Authority. Signaling the attack, the angel managed to hurt Ainz with Holy Smite, but fails to follow up, as it becomes consumed by his Black Hole.

Completely demoralized of their helplessness against Ainz's power, all of the Scripture's members are taken prisoner and given to Neuronist Painkill.

Sunlight Scripture Magic Caster

The Sunlight Scripture was a group that focuses on carrying out radical activities. The majority of its members were magic casters, with fewer than 100 knights that act as support. They have very high standards, requiring its members to be able to use divine spells of at least the 3rd tier along with all the other normal high level spells that were employed by adventurers. They also have high physical ability and are extremely coordinated through their collective faith in the same god.

Their main way of fighting was summoning Angel servants that fight on the front line while they would stand back and cast spells from afar. Their strategy is to continually summon angels and to replenish those that fall in battle, eventually wearing the opponent down.
