Summon - Origin (ToS)

Summon: Origin as it appears in Tales of Symphonia.

Origin (オリジン Orijin?) and Summon: Origin (降霊召符・源 Koureishoufu: Minamoto?) are artes in the Tales series that summon Origin, the King of Spirits.

Arte Description and History

Origin first appears in Tales of Phantasia, under the command of Claus F. Lester. When summoned, Origin splits himself into two separate forms before firing lightning between them. It is essentially a two-person version of his Collapse arte. In Tales of Symphonia, Origin performs his Rameesh arte, where he rains lightning within a triangle. The only difference concerning this version of the summon is its boosting of the party's Attack and Defense. Sheena Fujibayashi is the only character in the game who can use this summon.
