Nanaya Knife.png

Shiki's primary weapon is a small knife, a relic of the Nanaya family named Nanatsu-Yoru (七夜, Nanaya?, Seven Nights). It is a switchblade with a plain hilt, with its blade and hilt of a length around 10 cm. The blade can alternately be called the Nanaya, taking after Shiki's real surname. The meaning of the name is the same as well as the kanji.

Mystic Eyes of Death Perception[]

Shiki Tohno with his Mystic Eyes activated from the PV of Tsukihime -A piece of blue glass moon-.

A special power that awoke in Tohno Shiki as the aftereffect of an accident seven years ago. Mystic Eyes that can apprehend "the lines vulnerable to death" ー the concept of a "time of death" inherently contained within all things.

As opposed to the "physical phenomena that can be attained through modern technology", it is a "phenomenon that cannot be attained no matter what". Tracing these "lines of death" allows for the target to be severed and killed (in this case it is not the cut that kills, but death resulting in the target being cut).

Although Shiki can suppress his power to a level that doesn't impede his daily life thanks to the Mystic Eye Killer glasses he once received from his teacher (Aoko Aozaki), the same cannot be said for when he runs into extreme situations. Ultimately, it becomes possible to not only see the "lines" and "points" of living and inanimate things, but also the death even of space and existence.[2]

    Comment from the illustrator: The protagonist of the game, tragically given eyes that perceive “lines of death” in everything. Since this is a first-person POV VN, he has only one normal sprite, but maybe the biggest amount of battle sprites.

    COMMENT from STAFF
    あらゆるモノに宿る「死の線」を迎える目を持ってしまった、本作の主人公。 主人公視点のノベルゲームという形式のため、通常立ち絵は一枚だけですが、バトル用立ち絵は最多クラス。(武内崇)
