'm referring to the material shirou's body is made of. it's not ubw. shirou's body is not made of ubw. it's his soul which is ubw. ubw didn't make the "sword armour" out of his body, as his body itself is the sword. the fin-like steel which came out when he's slashed by gilgamesh and rider
But according to your word, it may as well be the result of tracing, and in that case, indirectly, UBW is responsible
I never say his body is made of UBW
UBW affect his sorcery (by sorcery, I dont mean True Magic, my habit of using sorcery for normal spells that can be replicate started before the translation and it's a big hassle to fix), and is partially what make his body sword like if we go with your opinion
it's his own body. "his body is made out of swords".so tracing swords is basically like just transforming a part of his body into a sword.
Well, unless I misunderstood something, if that's the case, please clarify.
tracing swords is basically like just transforming a part of his body into a sword.
isn't quite right
He use prana to process raw material into swords
normal mage need to carry those material, which is why projection is too much a hassle
In this Reality Marble, the substances needed to form all swords are present. Just by looking at the original, it is possible to replicate it. However, the replicated weapon is lowered by one rank. Defensive armaments are possible but the normal projection cost is two to three times the regular amount of Prana used in making swords. A weapon replicated once is recorded in the barrier and can be made without activating the Reality Marble using tracing thaumaturgy.
So Shirou doesn't need those materials
he transform the substances inside UBW into sword, that's his projection
Not really a part of his body, its from his soul, if you like to differ the two that much.
I'm under the impression that his change from the very core in HF is partly the reason using projection and the AP is killing him
For Emiya Shirou, whose life had been saved by a sword and who actually merged together and lived with a sword, his body wouldn't be the type that would destroy itself from sword-making.-Fuyukiwiki
P/S: I fail too understand how a person can have body made of swords if not for something unnatural, even if his affinity is "sword". It's either his merging with Avalon, his tracing, or his UBW, one or all of the above.
