  • Cool Horse: Zephyros Silver, a mechanical horse that can be ridden into battle

  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: A defining trait of his personality is that he is willing to fight for other Masters and Tians.
  • Earn Your Title: Gets nicknamed "The Unbreakable" for not breaking despite facing a Superior, when he himself was at a far low level than the other guy.

    • "Grand Cross" is an active skill where the user attacks with a pillar of holy light in the shape of a cross.
  • Signature Move: Purifying Silverlight. While Tian Paladins also have it, most Master Paladins don't receive this move as it requires a Paladin to defeat 100 undead monsters around the same level as themselves. As Paladin is a high rank job, most are usually much higher levelled than the undead they kill.
  • The Law of Power Proportionate to Effort: Vengeance is Mine deals more damage based on the damage Ray takes. The more he takes, the more he can dish out.
  • The Medic: Has access to healing spells. Although he usually uses them on himself, his first use was on a passing fellow Master.

  • Weapon of Choice: The Embyro, Nemesis, takes his personality and turns into weapons based on it.

A generous and supportive Embryo

An Embryo born from Ray's personality and his loyal maiden on his journey through the world of VRMMO.

  • Cute Little Fang: She often shows a pair of fangs when she smiles.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Her appearance is that of girl wear a black Gothic dress
  • Meaningful Name: Her name comes from the Greek goddess of indignation and retribution for evil acts and undeserved rewards. This is a reflection of her powers that she can grant to her Master.
  • Weapon of Choice: The form(s) she can take come from the personality of her Master and his experience. They include:
    • Nemesis' "Black Blade" form is a long black Western greatsword with two different skills: "Counter Absorption" and "Vengence is Mine". Counter Absorption creates a wall of light that can absorb up to 400,000 points of damage, but carries only 3 stock uses and recharges once per day. Vengeance is Mine sends damage taken within a 24 hour period onto a target and deals it double. After the skill is used, the target's damage counter turns to 0 for the day.
      • Her second form, "Flag Halberd", has the skill "Like a Flag Flying the Reversal", which is a buff-type skill that can reverse any debuffs cast on Ray, but costs 1 SP every second.
      • Her third form comes in an α and a β form that carries their own respective skills. Her α form, titled "Black Circle", comes in the form of a large round black shield that can use the Counter Absorption skill. Her β form, named "Shooting Wheel", takes the form of a large pinwheel with metallic edges and its skill is Payback Overstar, the pinwheel is launched at a target that deals damage Ray received within 24 hours and deals triple that value as direct damage to the target. It will automatically home in on the target with the speed and maximum distance equal of amount of damage on the target's damage counter. It takes 1 minute to charge and can only be used once per day
      • Her fourth form is called "Black Mirror", and is in the form of an elegant winged mirror that floats behind Ray. The wings can detach into short swords which can use Vengeance is Mine, but they can only apply half the maximum damage. Its main skill is "Chaser from Mirroring", which is a buff type skill that increases Ray's stats to equal a corresponding stat of a target that has deal damage to him within 24 hours. It can only mirror one stat at the time of activation and will not change to reflect any increase or decrease after that. The cost is that the target's damage counter is subtracted every minute and deactivates when no longer possible.
