General info:
5 Guard Primers
Has a dash like that of Eddie (GG)
Relius' theme is an opera. Described as "boss-like"
Drive name: Detonator
His Astral Heat is not usable in the loketest build

His Drive, Detonator:
Use it to invoke Ignis, who follows Relius. If Relius jumps, Ignis floats
Can perform blows with Ignis with direction+D. You may then press D again to call her back
Relius can attack while Ignis attacks
Ignis disappears when Relius is attacked
j.2D, j.6D, j.8D cause Ignis to appear and rush in the direction that D is inputted.

Drawings of his moves (Japanese): http://generalnantoka.blog35.fc2.com...entry-534.html

Normals:
5B: blow with the mantle that appeared in Famitsu
6A: overhead
5C: two arms out of his mantle; cause 2 hits
2C: leaves a gear (?), Anti-air

Command Moves:
214B: Ignis spins around
236C: The punch that appeared in Famitsu
Follow-ups of the 236C (or 214A j.214B), they call Ignis to attack
J.214B: Ignis makes a coup similar to the Carl j.2C
236D: Ignis appears above Relius and attacks the opponent at a 45 degree angle

Distortion Drives:
632146C: a gear appears holding the opponent. Invincible on startup. Relius can move during this. Minimum dmg: 1000(?)
632146D: Ignis attacks with an aura similar to "Volante" (Carl). Raw hit dmg: 2600
236236D: The same super as "Rhapsody of Memories" (Carl)

Location Test Combos:
