A grimoire魔導書グリモワール Gurimowāru」 is a book that allow their users to cast specific spells that are far in advance of their own natural magical abilities. It is one of the primary sources of power for the Magic Knights and other mages.

Description

Grimoires are magical items that greatly enhance the user's ability to use magic. They also serve as a written record for all of a user's spells. Most of a grimoire's pages are empty at first; as a grimoire owner grows and develops as a person, the grimoire grows and develops with them, and new magic spells are inscribed into the book to fill the blank pages.[1][2][3]

When in use, a grimoire levitates either in front of or beside its owner and follows the mage wherever they go. When the grimoire owner activates a spell, the pages in the grimoire turn on their own until turning to the page containing the spell that the mage intends to use.

Because a grimoire is connected to its owner, a mage cannot use another person's grimoire,[4][5] and a grimoire will disintegrate as its owner dies.[6][7][8]

Mages receiving their grimoires.

Before being claimed by their rightful owners, grimoires are stored in Grimoire Towers, special libraries scattered around the kingdoms. Once a person has turned 15 years old, they can attend the annual Grimoire Acceptance Ceremony in March in order to receive their grimoire.[9][10][5] A mage who misses the ceremony after their fifteenth birthday can travel to any Grimoire Tower and receive their grimoire individually at any time.[11]

Grimoires of mages from the Clover, Diamond, Heart, and Spade Kingdoms have clover, diamond, heart, and spade insignias, respectively, on their front covers.[12][13][14][15]

In the case of the Clover Kingdom, a grimoire with a three-leaf clover is common, while a grimoire with a four-leaf clover is rare. It is said that a four-leaf clover grimoire brings good luck and is only received by a truly exceptional mage.

Five-Leaf Clover Grimoires

A corrupted grimoire.

When the owner of a four-leaf clover grimoire falls into absolute despair, the book is corrupted by its owner's deep despair and hatred, becoming what is known as a Grimoire of Despair 「絶望の魔導書グリモワール Zetsubō no Gurimowāru」.[16] During this process, the clover turns black and develops a fifth leaf.[17]

These five-leaf clover grimoires can be taken and possessed by devils, who use the books to manifest their true powers.[18]

Unlike ordinary grimoires, a five-leaf clover grimoire does not disintegrate upon its owner's death.[19] Instead, it goes dormant until a new compatible user is born and comes of age.
