Summons

It's important to note that despite the fact that some summons may have extraordinarily high skills, their physical forms may preclude them from practicing the skill itself. For example, Leviathan is hardly capable of building complex and intricate magitech devices. The summons are still able to offer advice and assistance however.

Some Summons will be Weak or Fragile to various types of elemental damage. This trait follows the same rules as per the Weak and Fragile status in the Magicite section, along with the corresponding strength; Absorb or Null. However, some summons do not follow this rule, as they are not creatures of the material world, and so do not follow all of the rules of material creatures.
