Avalon Drakon also known as the Evil Banishing Dragon, an Independent Avatar-Type Sacred Gear wielded by Lancelot Du Lac.
In the past, God of the Bible found and sealed the soul of an Ancient High-Tier Dragon residing on the Legendary Island, Avalon named Avon inside a blue jewel that was being prepped to be made into a sacred gear, but it couldn't due to the dragon being in hibernation.
In Volume 4, Lancelot is given a blue jewel by his mother and uncle, two of the Four Great Seraph, who held faith that he could complete it. Due to him being in a deep sleep as a result of the curse that was bestowed unto him by the multiple demonic beasts, even during his investigation of the jewel, he couldn't sense a single a bit of its presence. After Azazel used his Artificial Sacred Gear, Downfall Dragon Spear's Pseudo Balance Breaker: Downfall Dragon Another Armor, the dragon inside of the jewel started to awaken after sending the multiple presences of a Dragon King and 2 Heavenly Dragons during Issei's and Vali's battle.
In Volume 5, Lancelot performed a ceremony during the summer break on Avalon where he could full completed the Sacred Gear, Avalon Drakon. Avon later tagged along with a mission that Lancelot and the others had, it later gained the ability to transform into a weapon through his teamwork with Lancelot turning into the Avalon Heroic Sword. It is also revealed that due to the curse that was bestowed onto Avon after being sealed, it impeded them in combat.
In Volume 8, after Lancelot freed Avon from the curse bestowed onto him by many of the demonic beasts, Avalon Drakon regained its original aura and abilities. It regained its original power Anti-Magic that let can nullify abilities and effects that originates from magics such as spells, curses, hexes, jinxes, and charms.
Being a dragon, Avalon Drakon is still vulnerable to Dragon-Slaying Magics, Swords, and Curses. This weakness also applies when Lancelot uses his Balance Breaker and other forms.
AppearanceEditAvalon Drakon takes the form of a small white dragon around twice the size as Asia's familiar, Rassei, but with a blue jewel in its forehead. In Volume 8, after the curse placed on Avon was purified, Avalon Drakon turned into a normal sized western dragon large enough for someone to ride on top of.
Avalon Drakon has the ability to summon a white dragon named Avon, which is capable of moving independently from its wielder, while it also has its own instincts and intelligence. The dragon has the ability to fire off beams of pure energy from its mouth, which can harm beings such as Devils and Vampires. The Avalon Drakon can also form barriers that can defend against physical and magical attacks.
In Volume 5, Avalon Drakon later gained the power to transform into various weapons depending on the powers and abilities of its wielder such as the Sword Form: Avalon Heroic Sword. Each of these weapon formats grants its wielder the power to unleashes focused energy waves and dragon aura from it for various purposes.
In Volume 8, Lancelot removed the curse placed on Avon before he was sealed inside of Avalon Drakon letting it fire off a far more intense beam of energy from its mouth. Avalon Drakon can also create far effective barriers. He and Avon awakened its original power of Anti-Magic, which nullifies the abilities and effects that originate from magic such as spells, curses, hexes, jinxes, and charms.
Sword Form: Avalon Heroic SwordEdit
Avalon Heroic Sword (追放の聖剣, Tsuihō no Seiken): also known as the Holy Sword of Banishment, is the sword form later gained by Avalon Drakon and is used by Lancelot Du Lac. It transforms into a double-edged longsword with golden designs running along the middle of the blade with a blue jewel embedded into the ornate guard and a two-handed blue hilt. It has the power to unleash waves of focused energy from its blade, which can injure being of darkness and vaporize evil spirits. The Avalon Heroic Sword has demonstrated the ability to repel magic. Another attribute of it lets Lancelot channel his full power through the blade with far greater proficiency. In this form, Avon has the power to control/regulate the power of its holder letting him bring out the best qualities of its wielder's attacks.
Avalon Drakon GuardianEdit
Avalon Drakon Guardian (竜騎士の鎧, Abaron Dorakon Gādian): also known as the Holy Shroud of the Royal Paladin of Paradise, is the Subspecies Balance Breaker of the Avalon Drakon. It creates a set of clothing that takes form as a modified platinum sleeveless jacket that has black designs on it, a black skintight undershirt, a pair of darkish gray trousers with a green belt, a green holster attached to his right pants leg with a silver chain link on one of his pants loop, and shoes. Avalon Drakon Guardian strengthens his defenses protecting Lancelot from various forms of physical, energy, and magic. He can also still wield the Avalon Heroic Sword even while in Balance Breaker. After his fight with Gilgamesh, Lancelot has mastered it to the point where he can erect dense barriers could block attacks from Ultimate-Class Devils and even attacks from even Issei.
