A traditional short scimitar at first glance, the weapon's distinctive feature is its modified expandable handle which -if unlocked- explosively increases the length of the sword by roughly five and a half feet via a spring loaded mechanism, making it more like a naginata when in said state.
ARCUS SHROUD --
Apollo's semblance manifests as a thick Vantablack (light absent) cumulonimbus storm cloud-like vessel. The amount and density of the manifestation is determined by the amount of aura channeled into it which can range from a slight manifestation emanating and rising from the lower half of his body to bursting out to fill larger areas. The cloud obstructs the senses of sight and smell and can either drain aura from others in contact with it or be imbued with certain types of elemental dust to take on additional powers.
