“There's an audience in place! Gotta let 'em see my face!”
—Ghauri , Azure Striker Gunvolt 2
Ghauri, "The Prism Master", also known in Japan as "Prism Master", Ghauri (水晶靴の舞踏派 (プリズムマスター) ガウリ, purizumu masutaa Gauri; "Prism Master" translating to "Crystal Shoes Dance Faction") is a member of Eden's The Seven and one of the antagonists of Azure Striker Gunvolt 2.
A former street dancer with an odd habit of speaking in rhymes, he attempts to combine his Septima with his dance moves to create a true spectacle. He has an affinity for the Prism Cataclysm Septima, which allows him to generate and control crystals at will.
English Website Description Edit
His “Prism Cataclysm” Septima allows him to create crystals at will. A former street dancer, his constantly amped up, upbeat attitude is quite infectious within Eden. For better or worse, he will speak in rhymes, to the point where a sentence will lose its meaning just so he can complete a successful rhyme.
If he coats the ground with a crystalline material, he can glide along the surface like a roller skating rink. He’s currently working day and night on combining the powers of his crystal generation septima with a hot new original dance.
Ghauri is a teenager with cyan eyes and somewhat long purple hair. He wears a white short sleeved shirt, a small white-purple sleeveless jacket, blue jeans with lighter blue knees, and white shoes with purple highlights. He also has two purple straps hooked onto his jeans, a black belt with a sliver buckle, a black and silver pair of goggles on his forehead, black wristbands, and a black necklace with a silver spearhead pendant.
In his grimoired form, Ghauri gains much longer, slightly lighter purple hair, and black eyes with purple irises. He is covered in black and white armour, with purple highlights, with large purple crystals sprouting from his knees. His feet also resemble high heels. Ghauri also becomes noticeably taller.
Compared to some of the more serious and darker members of The Seven, Ghauri is a considerably more light-hearted character. His extreme self-confidence borders on outright arrogance, but his upbeat nature makes it fairly difficult to hate him.
A former street dancer, his speech is riddled with street slang, and is always rhyming his sentences, which more often than not are more English than Japanese. As a result of this, half of what he says doesn't even make sense, as long as he can continue a successful rhythm. In battle, he speaks in practically nothing but English phrases and slang, and dances around the battlefield as he tosses prisms everywhere.
Despite his casual, cheerful attitude though, he does show the same hatred towards non-adepts that other Eden members show, describing them as "parasitic".
Ghauri appears as a collectible pixel sticker that can be found in the stage "Radio Tower".
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
As a human attuned to the Septimal stage of the Lifewave and a member of The Seven, Ghauri is a powerful Adept who can harness the Prism Cataclysm Septima, which allows him to generate and control crystals of various shapes and sizes at will. Ghauri normally does this by generating a light in his hand which forms the crystal. The crystals are extremely tough, far more so than normal crystals, and can withstand all manner of attacks save for Copen's Twintail Bunkers.
In his normal form, it requires a lot of effort for Ghauri to generate crystals bigger than himself or outside of a five meter radius. With the power of a Grimoire however, his radius and size both increase exponentially. The crystals can also refract and condense light into deadly lasers, due to Ghauri's own willpower.
Ghauri can also coat the ground in crystals, allowing him to skate along the ground as if he was on ice. The crystals also seem to have some power over technology as in Copen's stage, he faces a Sumeragi Spyder unit coated in crystals. Upon receiving a Grimoire, his power grows to the point that he's able to completely destroy a highway. Owning to his former career as a street dancer, Ghauri is incredibly agile and graceful, combining his powers with his agility for graceful attacks.

プリズムプリズマプリズン Prism Prisma Prison
Prism glitters bright / Forming such bewitching bonds / From which none may flee! Poetry Slam!
Ghauri’s Special Skill. It's an attack that drops 3 prismatic pillars and traps the player within them. The prism pillars launch lasers that become refracted diagonally upwards or downwards. The pillars themselves become vulnerable where they launch lasers, so a good volley there can crumble them. Alternatively, while playing as Copen, the player can use the Broad Circuit Special Weapon at the right time to easily break all three pillars at once. If any pillars are still standing, Ghauri smashes them in a pair of flying kicks, then followed by a spin to smash it's lower part.
"Welcome to this hellish gate! I see that you didn't wait. But you can't escape fate so for you it's now checkmate!"
—Ghauri , being pursued by Copen and Nori
""The parasitic arthritic thinks he's a critic! Such pathetic aesthetic must be in your genetics! So get ready for judging, 'cause I ain't sympathetic."
—Ghauri , responding to Copen's criticism
"Yo mac! I'm back on the attack like a whack flap jak! You're on my terf, so it's time to get nerfed!"
—Ghauri , after being revived
"Crack pack flack in a back sack! Quack quack?"
—Ghauri , making no sense
"It upsets, but cool your jets before it leads to regrets! Sorry 'bout my wingman. He thinks he's the king, man."
—Ghauri , apologizing for Asroc's behaviour
"All right. Tight! I can work with this all night. Yer pal didn't like my moves, so it behooves that you improve."
—Ghauri , preaching to Gunvolt
"Where's the moves? Or the rhymes? Lacking both is a crime! So let's you and me dance until we chance to break the trance. By which I mean I'm gonna kick you in the pants!"
