</infobox> Eithan's Path is one of the many mysteries of the series. With it we have seen Eithan regularly do what other Underlords consider impossible and not just by the meager standards of the Blackflame empire. That being said, Eithan is also loathe to reveal the strength of his techniques, in fact, other than his enforcer technique Hollow Armor, and general bursts of power, Eithan almost never uses his techniques at all. It is only in a rare confrontation with Longhook where Eithan believes himself to be unobserved that he even uses other techniques.

While not directly coming from his path, Eithan's bloodline senses are heavily integrated into his path and some of his powers are designed around it.


  • Striker:
    • Madra Pulse:
      • On several occasions Eithan uses an undirected pulse of pure madra that floods and wipes out enemy techniques.
    • Madra Bullet:
      • A highly condensed ball of Madra enhanced by soulfire, the madra bullet is an incredibly deadly technique, perhaps the most directly lethal ability we have seen. The Madra bullet easily pierces techniques, disrupting and dispelling them, but more importantly, they shatter the core of a sacred artist upon contact destroying their ability to practice the sacred arts.
  • Enforcer:
    • Hollow Armor:
      • The most central technique to Eithans path, or at least the one he uses most often, Hollow armor projects a layer of pure madra armor over his whole body. This protects him from any madra based attack, though not vital aura, leaving him vulnerable to ruler techniques. Otherwise, it is an incredibly powerful protection.
  • Ruler:
    • As far as we are aware it is impossible to produce any kind of ruler technique with pure madra as there is no such thing as pure aura.
  • Forger:
    • Madra Shield:
      • Though not definitively a forger technique, the madra shield appears to be a forged shield of madra spun like a whirlpool capable of catching and tossing back enemy techniques.
    • Madra Stars:
      • The purpose of this technique is unknown, Eithan is only able to get half way through its creation before being interrupted by Longhook, but it starts with Eithan crafting what appear to be stars of pure madra sparkling like glass.
  • Unknown:
    • Heavenly Sword of Judgement
      • Much of this technique is unknown including its classification. However, it is incredibly powerful containing enough power to "shake the ground for miles around". Eithan uses it as a finishing move on Longhook.

Cycling Techniques:

  • Heaven and Earth Purification Wheel
    • Without this technique Eithan's path would be impossible. This cycling technique helps the practitioner build up capacity over long periods of time and almost all of Eithans techniques require copious amounts of power.

Iron Body:

  • Raindrop Body
    • Although not necessarily integral to his path, some one else on Eithan's path might choose a different body, it has incredible synergy with his bloodline senses. The Raindrop body grants incredible speed and as Eithan phrases it he was born with "eyes faster than his hands" and this body allows him to take advantage of his sense.
