It's not known how the Ballot was created, although it's said to have been created by either someone with supernatural power or an alien during the Nuclear War.
300 years ago, some nations used the Ballots to approve the use of nuclear weapons and began the Abandonment War earlier, shown when a soldier started the war and used the nuclear bomb on Japan.
The instructors of the 13th Special Military Forces School ordered the Red Barons to collect all seven Ballots to stop the war. After the Barons completed their mission, the instructors used the Ballots to create a sky island and stole food from all nations. Because of this, the Abandonment War finally ended and the sky island was named Althea.
After the end of the Abandonment War, four of the Ballots were kept at a Special Service faction and the other three were left in Alexandrov Grigorovich's hand. Although 5 years ago, one of the Ballots was stolen by Tsukina Farrow from the Special Service and is now in Hina's hand.
During a coup d'etat, Alexandrov was accused of murdering Charles De Bergt Althea The 11th and gave all of his Ballots to Licht Bach. And then Sakai Tokikaze defeated Licht, took three Ballots from him, and kidnapped Hina.
Ballots can be used for approval of a new law, which is known as "Althing" (
Althing is the noblest law in the world and nobody is allowed to go against its rules. If the soldiers stand against the Althing, they will receive the Death Penalty.
Other than the "voting ability" to place new "laws" on the world around it, the Original Ballots could also be used to access and channel the energies of the "Althing" by a compatible user when they hold one. As seen where the guinea pug rat used by Firenda that was put through the Red Baron Surgery received a surge of power upon holding a single Ballot, enough that it could easily escape from its reinforced glass prison with ease and bounce around a metal room leaving behind metal dents with immense speed and immense strength.
- Althing is a Scandinavian term. "Al" means "all" while "thing" means "parliament".
