Gram: Dawn of Ruin (破滅の黎明, Hametsu no Reimei?) is the "Sword of the Sun" wielded by Sigurd in the Völsunga saga of Norse Mythology. It was originally an enchanted sword wielded and pulled from the trunk of a mighty tree by Sigurd's father, Sigmund; later, it shattered from clashing against Gungnir and was reforged anew into a cursed demonic blade that was capable of killing even a dragon by Sigurd. After that, it became renowned as a "demonic sword of both glory and ruin." It is said to be the strongest demonic sword that can only be equaled to the strongest holy sword Excalibur, so it possesses the special characteristic of "dragon slayer". The weapon is said to appear in the Der Ring des Nibelungen, a legend of a knight equal to that of King Arthur under the appearance of Balmung, but it is rather called the "origin" of Balmung that was wielded by Siegfried.
The incident of Gram being pulled from the tree by Sigmund within the halls of King Völsung is a legend of a "sword of selection" originating with the sword Merodach. Gram itself, "the sword of supremacy in the tree" from Northern Europe, was the model for Caliburn, the sword in the stone possessed by King Arthur.
An uncommon Noble Phantasm that came into existence as a magic sword, despite possessing the attributes of the sun. Bestowed by his ancestor Odin, this sword is a rare weapon that not only selects a king, but simultaneously brings about glory, jealousy, ruin and fate. Its design differs between Gilgamesh and Sigurd's possession of the weapon, no doubt due to the reforging it underwent.
Sigurd’s Demonic sword, Gram, was once shattered into fragments in a clash against Odin's Gungnir, by Sigurd's father, Sigmund. However, through the process of restoration, Sigurd has reforged the weapon, having connected the broken segment of the blade to the pommel, thus making it a double-blade Sword. It glows emerald for some unknown reason.
Even in his first stage, Sigurd manages to melt the external armor of the Shadow Border very easily. Melting it may be one thing, but he even cut his way down the multilayered Bounded Fields surrounding the inner hull which had been designed back at Chaldea by Da Vinci, Nitocris and Parcelsus to ensure they'd be as strong as any from the Age of Gods. It should have been as strong as a fortress made of divine iron, yet Sigurd sliced through them like so much butter without even revealing his True Name. Da Vinci also claims that its magical energy is right up there with Ivan's. Although Holmes is able to stop him from using it thanks to his great combat experience, Sigurd ultimately cuts off his arm. In his stage 2, he is granted authorization to fully employ this Noble Phantasm in combat. At his peak, in his final ascension, Sigurd can create fire by simply swinging his sword without inscribing any runes. It becomes more powerful than anything they had seen before in that Lostbelt.
Sigurd is also shown using four daggers with similar coloration as Gram, two of which are named Ridill and Hrotti, which he levitates and punches at his enemy.
Bölverk Gram: Heaven's Wheel of Destruction (壊劫の天輪, Ekō no Tenrin?) is the Noble Phantasm of Sigurd. The full power release of Gram, which is originally an Anti-Unit Noble Phantasm. Instead of releasing energy from the sword, Sigurd draws out the power of the sword and throws it as an "Anti-Fortress" Noble Phantasm.
"I think throwing it is more effective" is what he believes.
The thrown sword strikes the target while scattering flames, and right after that, Sigurd slams his fist into Gram's hilt at full strength. Bölverk means "he who causes disasters", which is an alias of Odin, his ancestor.
Demonic Sword, Sword of the Sun, Gram.
A demonic sword of ruin and glory that Sigurd, the greatest hero of Northern Europe, possessed in the Volsunga Saga.
It is the model of Caliburn in the legend of King Arthur. As Caliburn was a chosen sword in a stone, Gram was also a chosen sword in the mighty tree of the Volsunga king.
The legend of Gram and its possessor Sigurd is a story filled with glory and ruin, as one would expect from a great hero.
"Der Ring des Nibelungen", composed later in Middle Ages Germany, is the story of a knight equal to the legend of King Artnur, and the sword Gram changes its name and appears in it as Balmung.
As the "strongest demonic sword" equaling the "strongest holy sword", it even possesses the special characteristic of "dragon slayer".
User: Gilgamesh A sword that appears in the “Völsunga Saga” of Norse mythology. It is wielded by the hero Sigurd. The incident where Sigurd’s father Sigmund pulled Gram from the trunk of a tree later became the model for Caliburn, the sword in the stone. After Sigurd reforged Gram from the shattered pieces, it is said to have become a demonic sword capable even of killing a dragon.
