Imperial Slaughter (TotA)

Imperial Slaughter as it appears in Tales of the Abyss.

Imperial Slaughter (星皇蒼破陣 Seiou Souhajin?, "Star Emperor Pale Blast Array") is one of Van Grants's mystic artes in Tales of the Abyss.

Arte Description and History

In executing Imperial Slaughter, Van first tosses the foe into the air with many streams of light. He then thrusts his sword into the ground, causing a fonic glyph and even more light energy to appear and damage nearby targets. It is very similar in execution to Asch's Rending Saber, probably to highlight his position as Asch's teacher.
