Construct Ribbons are magical ribbons featured in Little Witch Academia: Witches of Midgard.
Description & CharacteristicsEdit
Construct ribbons are metallic, segmented ribbons around same size with measuring tapes originally developed as composition of Raider Armor. When witch-blacksmith who invented the armor realized the ribbons' versality, they improved the ribbons so they can also be used for offensive and defensive purposes. The ribbons themselves are made of metals which magically modified via. alchemy process.
As multi-purposed equipment, construct ribbons are very versatile tool, most effectively used by magic users with creativity. They can be used to either create a perimeter to detect intruders who crossed through them, to either trap, restrain, or attack the enemies, and true to their namesake, magically combined into constructs such as weapons or armor. The formed constructs can be disassembled back into ribbons at will, and if a target is impaled by a ribbon spear, the spear can be unwrapped to swifly tear them apart. The construct ribbons can be easily tied to other objects, such as throwing knives, to control their course in flight when thrown, thus taking the enemy by surprise. The ribbons can also be used to patching up broken structures and assisting reattach severed limb of a Pomokai Holoholona.
As the composition of Raider Armor, these ribbons are shaped into a magical suit of armor via. its arm band. The construct ribbons usually stored in the spool attached on Raider Armor's arm band, which magically released and assembled themselves into armor around user's body in matter of seconds by simply pressing its metal claps. Since the armor created from versatile construct ribbons, the user can easily customized the armor's appearance and abilities to make it suitable with their combat abilities.
However, a critical weakness that construct ribbons contain is their quantity; They cannot self-replicate and must be manufactured in large amounts to perform heavy tasks or giant constructs. Without enough supports of their own, the ribbons are vulnerable to attacks and easily damaged due to fragility of their size.
