- The Atoner: Poli revealed that Touma has shades of this for being one of the Key factors of the war and dragging Mikoto into being attacked. Poli's abilities magnified his guilt to suicidal levels, but he snaps himself out of it. Lessar explained to Mikoto earlier that the war was going to happen anyway, and Mikoto forced herself on the trip, so she really isn't to blame anyway.

We all have our own sets of morals and limits, but in the face of accomplishing a goal, you should expect for a magician to do whatever it takes. Sacrificing a city of tens of thousands, calling down an Archangel, or even destroying the world, if it will accomplish our goal, so be it.Lessar:To be honest, I fought alongside him [Touma] in the war. I like him a lot.Mikotos bangs give off a spark of electricity at that.Since hes been around, its like our dark world has been growing brighter, just a little by little.
