Description & CharacteristicsEdit
Rota is a white Valkyrie Armor with charcoal grey platings forged from alchemy-based Solais Metal. As with other Valkyrie Armors, Rota enhanced its wearer's strength, speed, and power to superhuman level. When charged with emotional and spiritual energy of the user, the bright green glow of the armor's circuit patterns on wing ornaments, sides of the helmet, breastplate, shoulder plates, tassets, greaves, and edges of armor's tunic shine intensely. The armor also sports tattered white cape and matching long-sleeved tunic which bottom similarly tattered and reaches the wearer's ankle as well as armored witch hat with tattered edge to give it ghost theme.
For combat, since the armor specializes in stealth scimitar combat, the user has greater advantage when using scimitar form of her Valkyrie blade as the armor enhances her performance with it. The ghostly motif of Rota armor is not limited to its design and aesthetics, as it also extends to abilities unique to the armor alone: Rota armor endows the wearer infamous ability to defy gravity (which enable the wearer to fly or levitate without any supports like a ghost) as well as temporarily become either intangible, invisible, or both at the same time, latter abilities which useful to effectively evade attacks or sneak through multiple enemies without detected at the same time. A skillful user of this armor can also influence any objects or person they touch with these abilities at will. Overall, like Marmora Armor, Rota armor is formidable in combat and one of few armors which powers on par with Elemental Valkyrie Armors.
Unlike other Valkyrie Armors, Rota Armor is magically tied to its wielder via. genetic inheritance. Because of its unique powers, witch blacksmiths who forged the armor put a blood seal which resulted only those from McIntyre bloodline who can wield it. Unfortunately, due to the last member of the said bloodline and designated heir of the armor, Molly McIntyre, disappeared following Ghost Witch Incident at Luna Nova around 200 years prior to events of Little Witch Academia: Witches of Midgard, the armor hasn't been seen ever since then and it became a rumor. It was believed to be lost forever until Molly, the rightful heir of the armor, found it at her late cousin and former Specter Valkyrie Ragnhild's grave. It's also revealed that Ragnhild had also removed the seal which magically tied it to their bloodline so it can be passed to others.
