Asclepius in StrikerS
|Magic system||Modern Belka|
|Japanese name||アスクレピオス |
|First app.||StrikerS (ep.6)|
Asclepius (アスクレピオス Asukurepiosu) is Lutecia Alpine's Boost Device, similar to Caro Ru Lushe's Kerykeion. As revealed in StrikerS concept art, Asclepius originally belonged to Megane Alpine and after her "death" in the Combat Cyborg Incident, was given to her daughter by Jail Scaglietti.
Asclepius is named after the symbol of the Greek demigod of medicine, see Rod of Asclepius.
Asclepius' ordinary form is a pair of purple and black gloves that look like Kerykeion, but full-finger with purple gems instead of half-finger with pink ones. This seems to be both its standby and active form, since Lutecia wears it in day-to-day life in StrikerS. Even in the setup scene in ViVid, it appears as a pair of gloves alongside other Devices in their standby forms.
In StrikerS, when Lutecia goes berserk under the manipulation by Quattro during the battle against Erio Mondial and Caro, Asclepius is also seen being overloaded and damaged.
