Aura's Sword's: Evolution of a Swordsman
Initially Aura wields the sword the Azure Phoenix in his career (even when I first created him it was the plan in mind), but early on he did not have access to the weapon or the majority of his powers. So naturally He starts off with a weaker sword but over time graduates to the current one he wields.
Blue Knight Sword: The Restored Holy Weapon (Wielded Beginning S2-S4)
When Erick was born, his father sacrificed himself to seal his son's intense powers away within a his Auranian heart (Azure's that is). Before that happened, Azure pointed out one of Will Rovias' swords in his collection, specifically stating that it has a powerful history, and later on states that in a dying wish that his heart be bound to the sword itself.
Once Will attached the Auranian Heart to the hilt, the weapon changed to reflect the power that was sealed within the jewel. Thus the Blue Knight Sword was created, both as an extension and a gradual decaying seal on Aura's power. Allowing him to fight corrupted creatures, even against non-tainted opponents it posed a threat.
Although a decent weapon, the sword was not without its drawbacks. The materials that the weapon was made of was very old. Before it was restored, the sword was a near-rusty mess. Age had robbed much of the durability it once had, as a result it eventually breaks.
Another was that it was one of many blessed weapons once wielded by a knight of Camelot, Gawain (As revealed by Aura's master, Viviane Celestine in The Lost Episode). The Auranian power clashed with its original holy properties, decreasing the effectiveness of the weapon and hindering the use of Aura's advanced abilities.
Eventually Aura unlocks his "Awakening" ability, the precursor to the Alien Transformation. Further use of that power caused the sword to weaken, and come the end of season 4, it breaks when fighting against his Trigon clone. As a result, the seal is broken, and Aura's powers hit him like a freight train. the resulting battle and destruction of Gawain's old weapon caught the attention of Viviane Celestine of Avalon...the fragments and importantly the Auranian heart were held onto, allowing blue to regain control of his powers...
Phantom Sword: Shadow Weapon of Avalon (Wields is S5-Trouble in Tokyo while in Avalon)
Upon rescuing the kid from his own evil clone, Viviane realized that the fragments of the fighter’s sword were indeed one of the ancient weapons of the knights. But its former power was eclipsed with an unusual force of Light and Darkness, and this fellow had been wielding it all along. After dispatching the surviving Trigon clone her-self, Viviane recognized that the kid has potential to becoming a powerful Knight. After taking him to Avalon and healing him, she offered the kid a chance to become more than a mere squire, even a chance to test his power against the entities of the island.
Unfortunately, Aura’s handling of numerous swords caused them to explode or disintegrate. In order to provide him with a weapon, especially one that would work with his powers, Viviane’s personal blacksmith forged a sword composed of Phantom Crystal (A dark elemental that has ghostly properties and Shadow Power) and mythril silver. After besting her in a duel, Viv presents blue with the Phantom Sword.
Compared to the Blue Knight Sword, the Phantom Sword is much stronger and is a Dark Elemental weapon. Composed of Phantom Crystal, it allows easy absorption of Aura’s energies, allowing for powerful slashes and strikes. An additional property is that it can bypass some armor and material like a ghost, Making it very deadly.
Where the strength comes from its also its weaknesses, the weapon is made a little too perfect, and in Aura’s hands enemies don’t last very long in battle. If in the wrong hands, the sword can be a deadly assassination tool…only Aura’s energy allows the weapon to be non-lethal, but in the hands of others, it’s LETHAL in everyway! Both friends and enemies can wield the weapon.
The sword is a Dark weapon, as a result Aura cannot purify corrupted victims but he can defeat them and other enemies without trouble. Dark enemies though suffer half damage from its attacks, Darkness can’t destroy darkness.
Of the weapons, the Phantom Sword is Aura’s hardest hitting weapon. He holds onto it even after he receives his trademark tool of combat…never knowing when he might need a dark sword in the future…
The Azure Phoenix: Aura’s Master Sword (Teen Titans Chronicles)
Viviane understands that the Phantom Durandal isn’t a true weapon for a Knight, for that the only way Aura could become a true knight was to have a Sword that reflected the owner itself…one of Light and Darkness. After hearing Aura’s tale and the Jewel of his father being his actual heart, Viviane went straight to work on finding the proper materials to create the weapon that not just reflected the owner but was part of the owner too.
Gathering the purist Phantom Crystal she could find, and seeking the high priest of the Avalon church to have Mythril silver blessed as holy metal, she and her blacksmith began the painstaking work of creating a Knight Sword that held both elements that clashed against one another. Once finished, the sword didn’t appear to have any properties because both materials canceled them out…but once the Auranian Heart was added to the hilt, both nullified elements merged and became one brand new element; Twilight.
On the night that Aura would begin making preparations to return home, Viviane presented blue with the weapon, as he allowed himself to connect with it, the blade awakened and bonded with its new master. When the Auranian Heart recognized its original wielder, the sword’s appearance changed from darkblue/silver to Azure/sky and light blue to match its owner. And thus, the Azure Phoenix was born.
The Phoenix is Aura’s true weapon of combat, combined of elements of Light and Darkness it was born as an Element of Twilight. It carries the defense bypassing ability of the Phantom sword, purifying effects of the Blue Knight Sword and is capable of merging with Aura when he transforms into his alien form.
Strength wise, the Phoenix isn’t as powerful as the Phantom Sword, but it allows advanced purification against corrupted. It can’t bypass high density metal/material but most armor can’t tolerate many hits if not one.
Aura uses the blade throughout most of his life…unless he need to bring in the Phantom Sword for twice the power.
