Gādoītā's shikai causes the sheath to disappear, and in it's place are a small one-handed Lance-sword weapon, a conical weapon that comes to a sharp tip, with a working length of 42 inches (hilt excluded) and a gem-bossed shield. The lance has absolutely no cutting power, and makes bludgening strikes poorly at -1 strength vs Durability, however it is an exceptional piercing weapon, at +2 Strength vs Durability. The shield is primarily a defensive tool, but serves well enough, bludgeoning at -1 with the face, and at stats with the gem boss or the edges.
Han'ei Gādoītā's true power isn't in the transformation, however, but in it's ability to absorb energy blasts through the gem in the center. Because of the size and focus of the gem, the absorption rates are as follows.
Beams and small orbs (up to about the shield's diameter or so) are absorbed at a cost equal to 1/2 the stamina put into the techniques/spells.
Larger blasts, such as most waves and some cone-shaped bursts (especially such bursts that are in the form of small blasts in a volley as opposed to pure energy cones) and large orbs cost stamina equal to the stamina in the technique to absorb.
Massive blasts, such as some waves (like the Super Kamehameha), true cone bursts of pure energy, and spherical bursts costs twice the stamina put into the technique to absorb.
This energy can then immediately be applied to the lance, increasing it's power for the next attempted strike by +1. (Techniques may better utilize this energy.)
If a second blast comes before the first is used, the shield acts as a regular steel shield, with no enhancements at all, subjecting the wielder to the full brunt of the blast and preserving the energy within. The wielder can instead release the energy to safely absorb the incoming attack (or try to block with his lance of course.)
echnique 1: Spiral Lance By channeling it's wielder's energy, Han'ei Gādoītā is capable of forming a drill around it's lance, energy spiraling fiercely and powerfully. Spiral Lance can either use the user's energy, or the stamina absorbed through the Shield. (Keep in mind it's the actual stamina absorbed, not the stamina paid to absorb it)
Basic Spiral Lance At the cost of 10 stamina per turn sustained, this technique adds +1 to the Lance's damage factor for both piercing and bashing, dealing strength vs Durability -1 on a narrowly missed thrust.
Basic Spiral Thrust At the cost of 20 stamina, Han'ei Gādoītā can deliver a Spiral Thrust at long range, dealing damage off of Strength and attacking with Assault at +1. (For 30 stamina, the cost of maintaining the Spiral Drill as well as the Spiral Thrust, this will keep it's additional +1 and narrow miss damage.)
Super Spiral Lance By instead paying 50 stamina per turn, the effect can be increased to +2 with the normal strength vs Durability damage on a narrowly missed thrust.
Super Spiral Thrust At the cost of 100 stamina, Han'ei Gādoītā can deliver a Super Spiral Thrust at long range, dealing damage off of Strength and attacking with Assault at +2. (For 150 stamina, the cost of maintaining the Super Spiral Drill as well as the Spiral Thrust, this will keep it's additional +2 and narrow miss damage.)
