Reality: The Spirits that exist in the alternate dimension that is said to be the neighboring world and would occasionally appear into this world. On these occasions, there would be a large bend in the walls between the dimensions, causing a phenomenon known as a spacequake to occur. Whether it was on a large or small scale– the area where the Spirits would appear would be absurdly destroyed, as though a bomb had exploded. [1]


A sphere of influence created by a wizard's CR-unit or a Spirit's Mana. The artificial Territory created using the said technology is produced by a device called Realizer. It can give advantages to an ordinary human. When a human Wizard is inside his/her Territory, he/she may be capable of doing the following feats:

  • Fly or levitate one's body.
  • Create barriers for protection against attacks.
  • Levitate other objects regardless of their weight.
  • Strengthen the body of a human.
  • Increase the attack and defensive power of weapons like guns, laser swords, and missiles.
  • Trap someone or something inside another Territory.

Inside a Territory, a Wizard is said to be capable of doing magic. Ellen Mira Mathers' Territory is famous for being able to materialize without the help of a CR-Unit. Artemisia Bell Ashcroft's Territory is also unique for being able to extend its sphere at an incredible length.
