 The Seven Ghosts
 The Seven Ghosts
According to an old legend, Verloren (the god of death), killed the Chief of Heaven's daughter and was forced to flee to Earth. In retribution, Verloren spread hate and despair through the hearts of the people. The Chief of Heaven sent down seven holy lights, named the Seven Ghosts in order to stop Verloren. The Seven Ghost locked Verloren away in Pandora's Box from thousands of years. Verloren sent out messengers, called Kor, to find and contact humans to bring them under his influence. If a human contracts with one of the Kor, a mark will appear on their chest. This is called 'Verloren's Curse', only curable by the bishops. The Seven Ghosts try to stop and destroy the Kor in order to save mankind from Verloren.

The Seven Ghosts are thought to live in the Seventh District's church, guarding the sacred place. Despite the ghosts only thought yo be legend, they are in fact real.

The Three Dreams

Every soul, at the beginning of their new life stand before the Chief Of Heaven and creates three goals or dreams they wish to complete in their life time. When all three of the dreams have been completed the soul will be called back to the Heavens. Later, the soul will be reincarnated. However, one does not remember what dreams they have chosen when they start their lives. There are many creatures in the world that wish to interfere with that process, namely the Kor, messengers of Verloren, the God of Death.
 
 A Kor
 A Kor
The Kor steal dreams and drag humans to the darkness, and in turn convert them to Verloren's side. The Kor promise to fulfil a human's dreams. Once the first dream has been granted, a human no longer has the ability to be satisfied by anything in the world. Once the second dream is granted, said human falls into a state of starvation, or addiction. And when the third and final dream is granted, the soul has been thrown into darkness, and is forever unable to return to the Chief of Heaven. The Kor then takes the body. A possessed body with all three dreams fulfilled by the Kor is called a Wars (warusa, or "evil" in Japanese), and they serve Verloren. A magician who can control the Wars is called a Warsfile.  
   
It is the duty of the Church, the bishops, and the Seven Ghosts to protect humans from the Kor and Verloren. The bishops set out to destroy the Kor with their unique Zaiphon.
 

The Eye of Mikhail/Raphael

The Eye of Mikhail and the Eye of Raphael are two holy stones, which can be embedded within people's bodies. This allows the archangels Mikhail and Raphael to descend into the respective hosts body for a limited time. The stones are undetectable, unless activated. When the stones are activated, they appear on the hosts hand, and the host's eyes change colour. The host is then able to wield god-like powers with zaiphon. 
 
 
 
The Raggs Kingdom possessed the Eye of Mikhail, and the Barsburg Empire held the eye of Raphael. This signified a treaty between the two countries. One was never allowed to take the stone from the other. But the Barsburg Empire broke that treaty and attacked the Raggs Kingdom in order to obtain the stone, 10 years before the start of 07-Ghost.
 
The specific usages of the eyes are currently unknown, although some of their power has been demonstrated. So far, it has been revealed that the Eye of Mikhail originally sealed Verloren's soul in Pandora's Box, and the Eye of Raphael has been said to be able to reincarnate Verloren's soul into other human's bodies. It is also stated that: "According to a thousand years of the Judgment of Heaven, By the Eye of Mikhael (Michael), the sealed body of Verloren has been kept asleep for more than one thousand years… And by the Eye of Raphael, his powers are lost. And so, Verloren’s soul continues to wait for a human body fit for its reincarnation."

It is not impossible, yet it is not easy to be able to use two kinds of Zaiphon. Those who can are extremely talented, and are few. There are a variety of weapons that can manipulate Zaiphon. The most common is the bascule. The bascule allows users to channel their Zaiphon and use it for several purposes. Depending on the kind of Zaiphon, the effects it will have may vary: those with healing Zaiphon cannot directly attack a Kor, but they are able to restrict and remove Kor from people. Those with offensive Zaiphon are able to attack and destroy Kor.
