AoS Killer Mantle

Astral Veil is a Bullet Soul acquired from the Killer Mantle. When used, Soma swipes a mantle a short distance straightforward. The hit will deal minor damage with no attribute, but the first strike on an enemy has the additional effect of switching its HP with its MP. Striking again will only deal damage; the player cannot re-swap the totals if the result was unfavorable. The points are swapped before the hit deals damage, meaning they take a hit on their new HP total. This can result in the Astral Veil killing a tough enemy instantly.

Since an enemy's MP is not displayed, the effect is unpredictable and can be good or bad. Magic-using and demonic enemies tend to have high MP, while creatures that owe their magic to an outside source and those with mainly physical attacks tend to have low MP. A hit with the Astral Veil will cause a Succubus to swap to her 3,000 MP, but will instantly kill a Red Minotaur. Some enemies such as the Man Eater and Big Golem have identical HP and MP totals; with these it will seem like the veil does a normal hit with its first strike.

The Astral Veil is most useful against the Iron Golem, which has resistances to all forms of attack and normally takes 1-2 HP of damage from any weapon, with 9,999 HP in total. The Iron Golem has only 1 MP, and hitting it with the Astral Veil will kill it with a single attack. Mina Hakuba will give a hint to this effect if Soma speaks to her a few times after defeating Graham with the correct items to unlock the "good" ending.
