Whether the chains of fate can be broken. It all depends on your will.

The Slayer was able to control them with the untamed left hand, left in the dark. As he loosens the chains from their left arm, the Slayer ends up becoming more free. Due to the actions of the many demons, being able to communicate and cooperate with him. These slayers are named 'Soul Benders'. Depending on the situations, these ghosts are very helpful to the Soul Benders in battle. Zieg, one of the first Soul Benders, was able to summon powerful demons such as Kazan, Bremen, Saya, and more to aid him in battle.

the Soul Bender wasn't so pleasant. 15 years ago, Zieg, battled against barbarians in the hills, and unluckily for him, Zieg was struck by lightning several times, causing Zieg, and the demons, to be taken under the ground, never to be seen again.

The Soul Bender is a Slayer who learns how to better manipulate the dark energies within him by studying the nature of his demon parasites. His attack spells are even more deadly, and resistance to Shadow energy is substantially increased. In combat, he is often seen using his demons in Area of Effect (AoE) skills like Hazy-Eyed Bremen.png Hazy-Eyed Bremen and Ice Saya.png Ice Saya. A few of his most iconic and recognizable attacks are Tombstone.png Tombstone and Phantasmal Slayer.png Phantasmal Slayer.

  • At level 50, the Soul Bender awakens as a Soul Reaper. At level 75, the Soul Reaper awakens as a Dark Lord.
  • His subclass cosmetic effect is a dark aura when idle.
  • His 2nd Awakening cosmetic effect is a dark puddle under his feet, with shadowy hands reaching out towards him.

Becoming a Soul Bender

The Slayer must first reach level 15.

Awakening as a Soul Reaper

That a demon has possessed one’s arm is certainly a curse. Since no one would ever pursue such a thing, it is attributed to nothing other than fate.

To the accursed, little choice is given, but they must decide whether they wish to oppose that demon, or to entrust his soul to its darkness. This is left to one's own will. The strength to withstand its consuming darkness, yet control and guide its power is not an easy balance to maintain.

As we know, there are those who have broken through the chain. It is said that Zieg, the first and strongest Soul Bender, was able to control the seven demons any way he wanted. Yet even he eventually disappeared into the ground, due to those same entities that he embraced.

It is clear that the way of the Soul Bender is not a path easily taken… but as those who have tasted power know, as soon as you experience even the smallest amount, you acquire a desire, or even hunger for more.

The time for the advent of Blache, the prohibited demon, is at hand. An advent brought on by he who commands the demons.

You who dream, can you feel the giant shadow that waits with an avarice mouth open behind your back? You who crave, are you prepared? The time has come to fulfill your ceaseless desire.

But remember, desire is much like fire. If not properly contained, it may ultimately consume you.

The Soul Bender must first reach level 50.

Awakening as a Dark Lord

"The one that reigns over a hundred ghosts... I have been drawn in by your ghostly power that blurs the line between life and death."

I can hear an unfamiliar voice. How can a nameless wandering ghost possess such a powerful aura? After I've become "Soul Reaper", ordinary ghosts were sacred to even come near me, let alone converse.

"Who are you? If you are here to repent, you've come to the wrong guy. Leave before my power devours your soul."

After a short silence, the ghost talks sending chills down my spine.


"Do you really think you've achieved everything? I am the one who has returned from Hell itself... One of the ghosts who has lost his body in exchange for ultimate power. The one who has been given the power of the nine ghosts. We were only drawn together as our powers resonated. Do you not see that the choice is not yours but mine?"

Just as he spoke his last word, I started seeing terrifying visions that I had never seen before. The vision of a man who was taken by the ghosts and died a horrifying death. A man who withstood endless tortures and escaped from hell. Then suddenly, a name crossed my head.

"Are you Zieg, the High Priest?!"

The vision that blurred my head disappeared. I felt Zieg entering my body.

"Please take my power and become the Lord of the nine ghosts... my Lord."

The Soul Reaper must first reach level 75.
