|~ Biagio Busoni to Stiyl Magnus|
Biagio Busoni is a magician and Bishop of the Roman Catholic Church. A ruthless man, he was the overseer of the Church's project to modify La Regina del Mare Adriatico, a powerful magic weapon originally designed to destroy Venice and everything that came from it to target Academy City, which would destroy all the Science Side in one single blow. His plans were foiled by Kamijou Touma and the Amakusa Church, and he was later imprisoned by Necessarius in the Tower of London.

- St. Margaret's Crucifix: Expand crucifixes that Biagio's wielding or throwing to be three meters in length and 40 cm in thickness. This spell is based on the story of St. Margaret the Virgin, who was swallowed by an evil dragon from the inside and survived by expanding her cross to stab it from the inside. Activated using the incantation "The Cross reveals the rejection to evil."
- Weight of the Cross: Multiplies the weight of Biagio's crucifixes by increasing gravity's effects on them several thousand times over. This spell is based on tales relating to the cross being a symbol of humility like those of St. Lucia and St. Christopher. Activated using the incantation "The weight of the Cross corrects the haughty."
- Simon Carrying the Cross: A spell based on Simon helping the Son of God carry the cross to the execution hill. The spell forces the enemy to carry a huge weight, focusing the weight of all surrounding people and equipment on the victim. The attack works by laying the weight on top of the enemy, so it comes down from above. This spell is activated by Biagio raising one of his crucifixes above his head and using the incantation "Simon bears the cross of the Son of God."
