Six baselines of power creates three personality types and six innate abilities.

Each ability results in a learned technique, which Claymore warriors use to fight Yoma, awakened beings—and even each other.

Baseline, type, ability, technique[]

Type, ability and technique derive from six baselines, rated by the Organization from A to E (fail).

Baselines influence a warrior's personality, innate ability and invention of technique. An especially high rating on one baseline alone can result in a notable technique, despite weaknesses in other areas.

For example, Noel rates A+ for agility, though only C for strength. Her combined baselines create an offensive type personality. Her innate ability is Agile Speed Attack. Her invented technique is High Fluid Movement.

Noel: Agility A+ (plus other baselines) = Offensive type = Agile Speed Attack = High Fluid Movement.


Once a technique is established, it can be learned by others using different baselines, personality and ability. Examples are:
