Moral Transcendence Horizon
A character commits an extremely virtuous act that puts them beyond any chance of corruption.
Named after a a boundary in Heaven when crossed, the character cannot leave down to Earth; this trope uses it as a metaphor for good. The Moral Transcendence Horizon points to first good work to prove the character is incorruptibly good. Glance the word incorruptible. It is a demonstration of permanent good, as in the first act for the story to tell that hero or particular character is always a good or holy person. Of course we're talking about heroes who stay good but this is about "there's nothing to smear it into pure filth"-type good. The particular character's existence is now a pure sacred object on humanity. Because it is subjective, some characters thinks they crossed it while others wait for their corruption. A truly good hero lives on the other side of the Moral Transcendence, but crossing it does not mean the crosser is a true hero. It just means it will be their white spot in the history which cannot be dirtied. When a villain crosses the Moral Transcendance Jet and he's considered the villain, please point it to Designated Villain. Contrast Moral Event Horizon.
