Manga Fourth Generation (chapter)

A Fourth Generation (第四世代, Dai Yon Sedai), as dubbed by Haumea,[1] is a pyrokinetic individual who has awakened their Adolla Burst and connects with the Evangelist via the Adolla Link.


Shinra disintegrating.

Though not fully explored, a Fourth Generation ability is awakened when someone who has both acquired the Adolla Burst and forms a connection with the Evangelist or similar being through the Adolla Link. Once the connection is lost or revoked, however, the user loses access to their Fourth Generation ability. The Black Lady was only able to extend her Grace for a second, while the Evangelist is able to give power seemingly indefinitely.

While linked through the Adolla Link (using what is called 'Grace' or 'Divine Protection'), those who are part of the Fourth Generation gain incredible pyrokinetic powers. This includes being able to slow down time or move so quickly that the body disintegrates and re-integrates faster than the speed of light.

It is speculated by observers that these seemingly impossible abilities carry side effects that are dangerous for both the user and the world around them; however, the Evangelist's otherworldly protection seems to nullify these drawbacks.


  • Before her abilities fully awaken and despite being unaware of the category's existence, Inca Kasugatani speculates that her ability to sense fires might be a Fourth Generation ability.
