The Red Grimoire (紅の魔道書 Aka no Madōsho, localized as Crimson Grimoire), also known as the Burning Red (紅の魔道書(バニングレッド) Baningu Reddo, Red Grimoire), was developed by Nine and could be used along with the Blue Grimoire.[1] It allows its wielder to use the power of magic, even if they do not naturally possess the gift – making it one of the ultimate and most powerful of grimoires. Much like its partner grimoire, the Burning Red was long thought to be a myth.

Despite the initial fairy-tale status of the Red Grimoire, Kokonoe Mercury sought out its power, sending Kajun Faycott out to the 15th Hierarchical City of Torifune to find it. She wanted to equip TR-0009 Tager with it, but the failure in obtaining it forced her to use the Event Weapon Imitation instead.[1]

In order to make the grimoire, a vast number of souls are required as a catalyst, and a Remix Heart.

Cypher Albar’s ultimate desire, the Burning Red, was researched extensively by him to the point of pure obsession. He eventually managed to make his dreams come true and created it, but it was incomplete due to the lack of souls used as a catalyst.

Physically, the grimoire he created resembles a small glowing orb that can easily fit into a palm. To make it work, it must be placed inside the body of the wielder. Event the incomplete Burning Red allows to use magic, but it also hurts the body and psyche of the user.

Hazama is the last known person to be in possession of the grimoire after he murdered Cypher Albar.
