A Pillar (柱, Hashira) is a pyrokinetic individual who possesses an Adolla Burst. They are each protected by a Guardian from various organizations.

Adolla Burst

The Adolla Burst is a flame that originates from the realm of Adolla, also known as hell. The exact nature of the Adolla Burst remains unknown, however it has been referred to as a "pure and unsullied flame".

It is being in possession of an Adolla Burst that makes someone a Pillar. The Adolla Burst greatly enhances their pyrokinetic abilities, allowing them to achieve feats that would otherwise not be possible.

Great Cataclysm

It was the flame of Adolla that burned across the world during the Great Cataclysm. It was meant to completely burn the world to ashes, but the endeavor was a failure due to the number and strength of the Pillars at the time.[1] It is theorised if the current eight pillars come together with the Evangelist, a second Great Cataclysm will occur.[2]

Sumire experimented over two hundred and fifty years to have all the Pillars assembled, with the Eighth Pillar being the final one,[3] in order to successfully recreate the event.

Shō Kusakabe Third Pillar (三柱目, Sanhashira-me) Sho’s ability, Severed Universe, allows him to reduce the heat that causes the natural expansion of the universe, thus slowing the flow of time.

While initially completely obedient, he became somewhat resistant towards the Evangelist's motives after awakening his childhood memories and confronting his brother for the second time since their 12 year separation. Because of this, he was robbed of his Severed Universe ability and subjected to Haumea's mind control ability. Shō.png
