This section attempts to list and describe all the spells and spell-like effects seen in the pages of the Silent Möbius manga. Most powers demonstrated by Lucifer Folk are not listed, as these seem to be 'innate' powers as opposed to actual castable spells. Each spell will have the following items of information:
Page Number: The page number the spell appears on. This number will be the page number of the Japanese volume (or Side). If there is a Viz-translated trade paperback that also shows the spell, then that page number will be given in parentheses.
Who: The person casting the spell.
Spell Name: The name of the spell as given in Silent Möbius. If none is given, the name might be that of the spells most obvious feature (for example, if the spell is clearly a barrier, then the spell name will be "Barrier Spell"). If there is no given name and the spell's purpose is unknown, then the name will be listed as "Unknown".
Incantations: Incantations given while casting the spell. In general, these will be taken from various sources, not just the Viz-translated version.
Description: What the spell is seen to do in the pages of the manga. Naturally, some of this will be guess work. In general, I will describe exactly what is shown.
Game Effects: An attempt to define the spell and it effects using the HERO System. Some spells will get actually write ups, others will only be guessed at and given suggestions. Due to the nature of the manga, very few spells will be fully written up. Any spells that are written up will usually use a base of 60 active points.
Page Number: 10-12
Who: Katsumi Liqueur
Spell Name: Spiritual Attack
This is the same spell cast at the end of Side 10. Lum is still wandering around in her own little world (literally). The angel drifts towards Lum and wraps itself around her, at which point Lum whispers "Mother?". Katsumi then gets ready to bury Medium in Lum's back.
Game Effects: Considering the effects seen in this Side 10, this spell looks to be a very potent from of Mental Illusions.
Page Number: 12
Who: Avalanche Wong
Spell Name: Barrier
Katsumi tries to stab Lum in the back, only to encounter a shimmering circular barrier.
Game Effects: This is a standard Silent Möbius Force Wall.
Page Number: 14
Who: Katsumi Liqueur
Spell Name: Unknown
Katsumi states: "Nami... Avalanche managed to save you, Even though I sealed you in the space between Gaia and Nemesis." Apparently this is where Nami vanished to back in Side 9/10.
Game Effects: Based on Katsumi's comment, this spell would sound like some form of Extra-Dimensional Movement. How Avalanche saved her is a good guess, although he may have an EDM spell himself or some form of Dispel.
Note: This Side discusses Medium to some extent. Basically, Medium magnifies it's wielder's powers. In addition, the wielder is under Medium's control and will willing commit evil and horrific acts. The only way to break this control is for Medium to take the life of a loved one. At that point the victim will wake up, with no memory of past events. The sword itself will go dormant, and can then be safely handled and sealed away (until someone else manages to recover the weapon). As a final note, Medium freezes a person's body clock, meaning that they don't age while under the influence of the weapon. Both Mana and Katsumi fell victim to Medium's power, with Mana killing Genvara and Katsumi Kiddy. In the latter case, however, Kiddy was saved by placing her brain into a complete cybernetic shell.
