There must be some reason to why complete Ragnarok was not given to the current Lord and why the previous Lord wanted Rai to have it (wanted him to be Lord, but other than that it's unknown), but still he currently cannot use Ragnarok at all. I don't know if the previous Lord realized the Noblesse would eventually lose his life force and possibly die from it but it seems Ragnarok might be a solution somehow if Frank can put his head together and figure out why Rai's life force is withering away so fast, possibly from 850 years ago, and I'm not sure if the previous Lord had figured this whole thing out more than Frank could have.
Other than that what do you think the reason is that Ragnarok is still in the story just hasn't been usable as of yet?
Soul weapons contain the Souls and with it, the power of the previous wielders as I remember correctly. Also, that power doesn't use up the users power nor does it shrink after each use. What if the Ragnarok can function as some sort of batterij for Rai? He can use its never ending power instead of his life force. Together with him being the Noblesse and probebly never have to go in to entirnal slumber, he would rule Lukedonia forever and keep the world in peace.
Maybe since the old lord wanted to spare his daughter the fate of being the new lord, he only gave her half. And then entrusted the second half to Rai, as proof to all the clan leaders that he wished Rai to take up the position of lord.
Ragnarok is not only soul weapon which is divided. rajak's clans soul weapon is also divided also lord know that rai will give its back to princess/new lord. about giving half Ragnarok to rai and new lord each is old lord's thinking was different then other nobles he was fun loving guy
You guys nailed it!!! Ragnarok has been used to restore Rai's depleted life force!!! Epic prediction!!!
