According to the book titled "Research Notes on Siegfried and its Special Abilities" found by Velvet Crowe's party, it is a relic that was likely created during the Avarost period and has formula embedded into it that allows its wielder to manipulate mana. The book's authors theorize that at first Siegfried was created as a specialized anti-dragon weapon and to be effective can use a variety of "volitional bullets" that can bestow a variety of effects on its targets. The bullets are actually crystallized mana that can cause disabilities depending the intent with which they were imbued. Among known bullet varieties are power link-severing and temporary malevolence influence blockers.
