The Faust Robe (ファウストローブ Fausuto Rōbu?) is a protector armor that is transmuted via alchemic techniques utilizing a large amount of energy.
The Faust Robe can be thought of as a twin of the Symphogear system. They can be created from an energy source such as the Philosopher's Stone like the Spellcaster's, or from a relic like Carol's Faust Robe using Dur da Blá. To wear a Faust Robe, the user must have a female body.
From this description one may say it is an object that is incredibly similar to the Symphogear, but the biggest difference between the two is that a Faust Robe does not require a Holy Chant to be activated.
The Faust Robes worn by Saint-Germain, Cagliostro and Prelati are all sourced from the Philosopher's Stone, however it has been especially tuned to each of their unique needs and fighting styles. The capabilities of their Faust Robes are beyond impressive and not only surpass a regular Symphogear but can even suppress the power of the Ignite Module which is supposed to be an ace in the hole.
In Carol's case it normally took the form of a harp, however when she plucked the strings the harp changed form and adorned to her body. The sound produced by the strings not only amplified Carol’s alchemic powers, but also proved incredibly flexible and useful in battle. A swing of the strings created an intense slashing attack capable of bisecting objects, and demonstrated various capabilities in battle by changing its form. It exhibited a combat potential that did not lose out even when faced against multiple Candidates.
