    Why is the Second Owner of a land called that? Is there any meaning to it besides Nasu thought stringing together English words sounded cool?

    The Association actually owns the land and the second owner manages it. Therefore second.

    Is the symbol we see on the Mage Association Uniform Mystic Code (and the uniform Koharu F. Riedenflaus wears in Fate/Requiem) supposed to represent something or is it just random nonsense?

    Personally, it feels to me like the two identical symbols facing each other may represent seraphim, because it looks like 3 pairs of wings with two pairs pointing up (wings covering their faces and to fly) and one pair pointing down (wings covering their feet). Or maybe it looks like owls.

    Dunno about the central symbol tho.

    I'd say it's probably the Clocktower symbol like this one for Atlas. No idea on what it represents though.

    Out of curiosity, since I got into a debate with someone about it, is this Mirror Moon TL wholly accurate? Which is to say, is the intended meaning of gifted "was born to" or can it mean "handed over physically"? I've seen the stance stated that there's room for ambiguity that Kirei was adopted since his being born would have required Risei to break celibacy, with the use of the word "gifted" in this passage cited as supporting evidence.

    Q: Kirei's wife Ortensia is covered with wounds in the design draft, is it because she has a body similar to Caren's? Also, Command Spells appeared on Kirei due to the fact that he somehow possessed Magic Circuits despite being born in a non-magus lineage. Does this mean Caren also has Magic Circuits?

    A: Kirei's wife is an albino (Note: wut, yellow-eyed-violet-haired-albino?), and is immune deficient. As a result, she can die from even a tiny wound, thus her body appears tattered. What Caren inherited is the aspect of "prone to be plagued by illnesses" (Note: There seems to be some sort of allusion here, because the word used for illnesses is "demon of disease"). This is truly an ordeal given by God.

    About the Magic Circuits, a normal person rarely acquires Magic Circuits. You can consider such cases sudden mutations. However, Kirei is not of this type. Kirei's Circuits were a gift from the divine sacrament, rewarding his father Risei's years of pious worship. Kirei was born with "the right to recreate the miracles in the divine sacrament". This "right", in other words, was the Magic Circuits. Caren did not inherit the Circuits.
