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.
