The Ascension Ceremony

Sanctus resurrected after the Ascension Ceremony.

The Ascension Ceremony (帰天, Kiten?) is a magical ritual developed by Agnus[1] once practiced by the Order of the Sword in which members of the order imbues themselves with demonic power at a great cost.[2] Those subjected to it and proved to be strong attained a demonic form that often appeared angelic.[3] However, those who attempt the ritual but are considered too weak can turn into unnatural false demons and lose their sanity.[2]

Story[]

Ascension Ceremony

The Ascension Chamber where the Ascension Ceremony brought Sanctus back to life.

The ritual is only partly shown during Sanctus's ascension. Whether Sanctus died from Dante's attack or was merely severely injured is unknown, but he has already healed from the bullet wound by the time Nero reaches Fortuna Castle and is lying on a bed-like altar beneath a canopy. With Credo watching over him diligently, Sanctus wakes fitfully. Agnus then enters the room and compliments His Holiness, but Credo blocks him from getting too close to the recently ascended Sanctus.
