The Orbis Libararius Norma (虚空情報管理機関こくうじょうほうかんりきかん), abbreviated as the OLN, was an organization that existed during the Dark War. It was comprised of members from outside the Magister's City of Ishana and later merged with the Mage's Guild to become the Novus Orbis Librarium in the war's aftermath.


An administrative organization formed by countries around the world that had survived the onslaught of the Black Beast during the Dark War. They doubled as both a research facility and a library that collected weaponry, foundations on magic, and information concerning Ars Magus. In the power vacuum created by the Dark War's destruction, the OLN rose to the top of this struggle thanks to the manipulation of Kazuma Kval and Yuuki Terumi.

As the organization was formed early on in the history of Ars Magus, the OLN resorted to primarily using firearms, such as rifles or handguns, and melee weaponry, such as swords.


The earliest known official movement of the OLN was after the first successful battle against the Black Beast. They were positioned to take over the management and control of Ars Magus from Nine the Phantom, the Mage's Guild, and the United Nations. They were given complete jurisdiction over matters concerning the Black Beast and Gigant: Take-Mikazuchi by the Committee of Hearing. Prior to the battle, they had been ordered to watch over Celica A. Mercury by Seven.[1] After being transferred power, the OLN was to arrest the Six Heroes and attempted to kidnap Celica from her hospital bed. They first went after the heroes after Nine had been arrested, but failed to capture them due their overwhelming strength. The OLN attempted to kidnap Celica, but she awoke and was protected by both the Nox Nyctores - Deus Machina: Nirvana and Hakumen. They were bested, failing to capture their target. and making their intentions known to both the Heroes and Ishana.[2]


The uniform of the OLN consists of white and blue, similar to the modern NOL colours. It is only described as uniform-like from Celica's perspective.
