Oceanic Steel will absorb any blow from your opponent. It forms to your body and bend with you, like a second skin. Magic weapons cannot damage this material. The steel will simply absorb any magic and give its owner the temporary immunity to it. For example, if a wearer of an Oceanic Steel breast plate walked near Kronos, they would not be affected by the time slow and they would be able to reverse the affect for a short amount of time.
Oceanic Steel, much like Celestial Bonze, can be forged into magic weapons. Some examples (These are all in existence and are owned by Children of Poseidon in CHB) of this are:
- Metal bracelets that transform into shields.
- Hair pins that transform into helmets.
- Rings that transform into swords.
- Necklaces that transform into amour and/or helmets.
These magical weapons have a special ability. Unlike most magical weapons that need to be touched to transform, Oceanic Steel transforms with voice command. The weapons transform at the command "Engage" and go back to their normal forms with the word "Disengage." Only the wearer of the of the weapon can engage its true form.
