Sword of the Godslayer
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift (playable)
μ-No.12-, commonly abbreviated as Mu-12 and known as both Kusanagi and the Sword of the Godslayer is a Boundary Interface Prime Field Device, Murakumo Unit, and the alter form of Noel Vermillion. Originally birthed in the 5th Hierarchical City of Ibukido, Mu was a depressed and murderous Prime Field that remained as a repressed part of Noel's soul. This part of her has disappeared with time, and her powers are used by Noel in times of need.
Mu first appeared as the final boss of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, being unlocked once the true ending of story mode is completed.
Mu-12 is physically identical to her original form, Noel Vermillion. In BlazBlue Continuum Shift, her eyes have dilated pupils and are sometimes depicted as glowing a bright blue, but this trait disappears in the next two games.
When out of combat, Mu wears a cloak very similar to Nu’s, but with a large blue jewel and harness attached to a small metal collar in place of Nu’s much larger collar. Her jumpsuit is white, has slightly larger gloves, exposes her lower torso, and lacks pants, which she replaces with long white leggings. Her jumpsuit also has glowing blue jewels set in golden frames on her hips, which are also present on top of her leggings. A similar golden piece covers her crotch. In place of Nu’s seithr regulator, Mu wears a metal headpiece with her variant of the Prime Field Device symbol engraved into it and stiff, horn-like antennae, an article of clothing which she continues wearing in combat.
Mu’s battle gear is similar to a mecha, just like her “sisters”, but with several key differences. She lacks a bodysuit, instead wearing a small blue, gold, and black garment which only covers the sides of her torso, her hips, and her crotch, exposing her back and front. Her gear has enormous blue and white shoulderpads with seithr regulators built into them, as well as a third, smaller regulator built into a gray metal object on the back of her neck. Under the shoulderpads, she wears a collar similar to that of a dress shirt, with a short red collar tie. She has long blue gloves with golden metal guards on the hands, and metal mounts on her forearms for her blades, identical to Nu’s and Lambda’s. Her bladed leg armor is also identical to theirs.
Although she appears calm and collected, she is actually quite lonely. Moreover, she is shy, and is bad at forming close personal relationships. She is good at fighting, but outside of that she is unskilled. Her cooking boasts the ability to kill people.
The Successor of the Azure and the 12th Prime Field Device, as well as the true form of Noel Vermillion. The sublimation of the Murakumo Unit, the "Sword of the Godslayer Kusanagi" shown itself for the sake of destroying the "Master Unit Amaterasu"...
The Successor of the true Azure and the awakened form of Noel. The ultimate Boundary Interface Prime Field Device. She was the "Sword of the Godslayer Kusanagi," the only one able to destroy the Master Unit that exists in the Boundary, but with the help of Ragna, Noel was able to retain her self-identity. So, to save her best friend, she asks Rachel to teach her how to control this power.
The Successor of the Azure and the 12th Prime Field Device, as well as the true form of Noel Vermillion. She awoke in Kagutsuchi as the "enemy of the world," and was attacked by her friends one after the other. In order to discover the true meaning behind this phenomenon, she begins to act.
During the confrontation with Ragna, Mu was split from Noel’s soul and became her own separate entity, but maintained Noel’s memories and personality. Mu-12 was also absorbed into the Embryo, but was sent to a different world from the others. In this reality, she had murdered many people, including her friends. She discovered Makoto while still unaware of her circumstances and was attacked by her. She fought back and knocked her former friend down. 
Inside the NOL branch of Kagutsuchi, she found Tsubaki, who turned her blade against the Godslayer and asked if it was fun to kill so many people and take their futures away from them. Tsubaki transformed into Izayoi, and the pair fought until a phenomenon intervention took Izayoi away. Mu began to despair over her circumstances, but resolved to find the Cauldron. Kagura blocked her way, his words making her lose control. She fell into a depression and stopped acting like Noel and more like the original Mu-12. Once she killed the illusion of Kagura, the cauldron opened itself up. 
Inside the cauldron, Mu discovered Es guarding the Gate. The two fought briefly before Mu lost to Es, and was sent back to the original, real world.  There, the real Hazama found her and managed to manipulate her into a robotic trance, whereupon he ordered her to kill the real Ragna. She complied, but Ragna freed her from her trance, and she was able to direct him out of the phenomenon event and back to his original reality. Mu attempted to follow but couldn’t, and asked Ragna to bring Noel to a cauldron so she could fuse with her again.  Ragna fulfilled his promise and brought Noel to a cauldron, but Noel rejected Mu, forcing Mu to wait until her other half was able to accept her. 
Mu was finally accepted by Noel later when the latter used the Azure Grimoire as a cauldron. With this, Mu finally reunited with the other half of her soul.  Noel would later use Mu’s power to fully absorb Izanami and Saya into herself, and become the complete whole of Saya.
