Material-S (マテリアル-S[1] Materiaru Esu) is first introduced as one of the chief antagonists in The Battle of Aces, along with Material-L and Material-D. She appears again in the sequel The Gears of Destiny, with her new name, new magic color and new spells.

Name and originsEdit

In the portable continuity, Material-S is the Material in charge of "logic" ( ri),[2] part of the System U-D materialised as a clone of Nanoha Takamachi during the Dark Fragment Incident. She is first introduced in The Battle of Aces in English Material-S and in Japanese "Exterminator of Starlight" (星光の殲滅者 Seikō no Senmetsusha).

In The Gears of Destiny, it is revealed her full name is Stern the Destructor (シュテル・ザ・デストラクター Shuteru za Desutorakutā, usually rubied as 星光の殲滅者(シュテル・ザ・デストラクター)), which may be shortened as Stern (シュテル Shuteru, usually rubied as 星光(シュテル)), German for "Star". Nevertheless, in the scenario U-D still calls her Material-S in Japanese.[1]

AppearanceEdit

Material-S looks like her original, Nanoha, except that her hair is brown rather than auburn, and cut much shorter. Her eyes are also light blue rather than dark blue, and her pupils are always contracted, like the other two Materials.

Alternate continuitiesEdit

PortableEdit

Stern GoD

Stern the Destructor in The Gears of Destiny

Stern appears in both Battle of Aces and Gears of Destiny.

Stern is very polite and calm, but nevertheless extremely dangerous. She is also respectful to strong opponents whom she loses to, e.g. explaining the Materials to Reinforce, admitting Yuuno Scrya (Nanoha's magic teacher in her cognition) as her teacher (師匠 shishō) etc.

MovieEdit

With the name Stern (シュテル Shuteru), she appears in Reflection and Detonation.

In the movie continuity, she is the materialised state of a "soul" awakened by the Tome of the Night Sky's pages, with reference to Nanoha's appearance and magic talents,[3] in 0067 instead.

Brave DuelEdit

Stern Starks (シュテル・スタークス Shuteru Sutākusu) is an international student studying abroad in Uminari City, owning the title "Stern the Destructor" for Brave Duel games. As a human, her pupils are no longer contracted. Her battle-related designs are based on Nanoha's in The MOVIE 2nd A's instead.

PowersEdit

Stern's Device is a staff named Luciferion. It is a copy of Raising Heart Exelion, but its primary color is metallic red and its gem is purple.

In The Battle of Aces, Material-S is one of the most powerful characters, combining Nanoha's long range attack power with Vita's melee and Zafira's defense skills. After Stern acquires her new powers upon reviving in The Gears of Destiny, fiery effects are added to her spells, matching her new magic color and the names of her spells.

Barrier JacketEdit

As revealed in The Gears of Destiny Material Girls., Stern's protective clothing, presumably a Midchildan Barrier Jacket, is known as Heat Suit (殲滅服(ヒートスーツ) Hīto Sūtsu, lit. Exterminate Clothing). Its design (except colors) is same as that of Nanoha's Barrier Jacket "Sacred Mode" in A's.

In the movie continuity, Stern's Heat Suit has instead an original new design with a chest armor plate and a gauntlet resembling Luciferion Claw, although the overall style is still similar to Nanoha's.

Stern about to bombard U-D with Luciferion's Disaster Head

In the scenario of The Gears of Destiny, Stern probably casts a copy of Exelion Buster (using Disaster Head) to vaccinate U-D when her attention is drawn away by Levi the Slasher. Her command phrase here is "Blast Shoot!"[4] She also casts copies of Axel Fin and Strike Flame for flight support and Disaster Head (A.C.S Open Mode), respectively.

Although not revealed in the series, all these copies should have different names from Nanoha's original spells, based on the naming of Stern's other copied spells.
