- Resolute Strike: Resolute Strike is an ability meant to be passed down to Henrex after Erna's training. As her intent is to make him focus on higher quality attacks with less need for spreading himself thin with a million lesser potent attacks. Therefore, Resolute Strike is going to be fueled by both his willpower and energy as a high 0 tier. Since it allows for him to utilize his electricity in order to cut through the bonds of attacks when he is able to gather, pinpoint and make a concise effort to attack an opponent or assault heading his way.
To give a proper illustration of how it works in combat: say that an opponent produced an attack that manipulated reality by blocking the ability to teleport within a radius of a city block. By focusing in on the element he wishes to attack, Henrex can channel that vision into his mind, infuse it into his lightning and attempt to enforce his will in a concise attack aimed at the general vicinity to try and cut through the particles of energy which produced this effect. In turn, with Resolute Strike, he could then attempt to cancel out the ability in order to break through it.
Appilication Usage: It is often recommended that Henrex focuses Resolute Strike into one or two applications per post. The reason for this is while it may not take away the amount of volume from within at a rapid rate, it can take away the potency as the whole aim of the technique is to allow him to have higher quality attacks. Repeating this in rapid succession will take away that potency and potentially make future attacks weaker if spammed. Thus reinforcing him making more critical thoughts when it comes to his plan of attack in battle.
Not Absolute: While this ability greatly increases his chances of canceling out attacks with his lightning, it is by no means absolute. It is possible to have draws where only half of the effect was nulled, while the other goes through. An example of this is if he fired it off a cero released by a Primera Espada. If the lightning hit, but it only vaporized half of the blast, he'd still get hit by the other chunk left at half potency. Additionally, with a high enough magic user, they could create potent barriers to shield themselves, or the opponent could just straight up move out the way or have other objects in the area around them take the damage. Which is the risk of this ability as there is no telling if it will pay off.
Focus: If his focus is broken, as to will the lightning break and harm. Henrex needs to know what his objective is for using Resolute Strike, channel that into his energy and control it with the utmost of will because of the tremendous volume of will being infused in his blast to distort the reality around him. So if there is no focus, there is no attack.
A power that Erna will bestow to Henrex due to the events of "Blood n' Guts: Face Your God Damn Fears"» Extra: https://www.platinumhearts.net/t18299p10-thefrost-s-power-dump#121869
