I thought I'd just go ahead and calculate that block Raziel pushes. I don't know what material it is made of, but I am going to assume stainless steel. I will calculate this for those who live in NA and EU. I am also going to assume that this cube is not hollow. No one is certain of that either way, so under these two assumptions what I'm going to do will only be applicable if the cube is not hollow. This should be made known if this is to ever be used as a feat. So, I will start with the imperial system and then the metric system.

Imperial
Height of the cube: 8 feet (Assumption)
Material the cube is made out of: Stainless steel (Assumption)

V = (8 ft.)^3
V = 512 ft.^3

Stainless steel is 467 lb/ft^3

467 lb/ft^3 * 512 ft^3 = 239,104 lbs., or 119.55 sh tn.

Metric

V ≈ (2.439 m.)^3
V ≈ 14.51 m^3

Stainless steel is 7,480 kg/m^3

7,480 kg/m^3 * 14.51 m^3 ≈ 108,534.8 kg., or 108.53 mt

Note: It is important to understand that this does not mean that this is how much Raziel can lift, as this was never demonstrated.

The obelisk is heavier if you wanted to calculate Raziels strength, on the other hand, if you wanted to calculate Raziels striking force then the block is the best bet since he strikes it. Thanks for the calculation Mea.

I know about the obelisk. I might give it a try later or something, but I really wanted to calculate that block. It's just right there being asked to be calculated!

You're welcome.

Question about Kain, is the reason he is the way he is and the way he looks because he fed on the seer? I ask because I saw this image

Interesting question, not sure honestly. Potentially, after all when he drinks blood he sort of makes part of them, part of himself so it makes sense his evolution on a genetic level would be influenced by who he has drunk from. He slurped from the veins of the Hylden builder as well, so that's two hylden with their blood in his veins.

That's pretty cool then again I think this is going just like fate planned with that one image of kain with the flaming reaver and wings

Concerning the coned stalagmite Kain destroys with his PK, it was measured to be 2.5 cm. tall, but only because I guessed where the measurement reached 2.2 cm. What I mean is that the rest of the stalagmite was higher than what the screen showed. Kain, who I guess is 7 ft. (2.13 m.), was measured to be 0.7 cm. In diameter, I measured 1.9 cm. I shall find the percent increase to find the length and width of the stalagmite.

1.9 cm. - 0.7 cm. = 1.2 cm.

1.2 cm. / 0.7 cm. = 1.71 or 171%

Taking Kain's height, the diameter would be 3.642 m. (11.95 ft.). For the height:

2.5 cm. - 0.7 cm. = 1.8 cm.

1.8 cm. / 0.7 cm. = 2.57 or 257%

Taking Kain's height means the stalagmite is 5.4741 m. (17.96 ft.). With these numbers, I can come up with an estimate using the volume for a cylinder.3.14 * 5.975^2 * 17.96 = 2,013 cubic feet. Stalagmites tend to be in caves made of limestone. In lb/ft^3, limestone is 163 lb. This gives us 328,170 lb., or 164 short tons.

Forgive any typos I made. I'm using a phone.

Thank you Mea, any new information is good for the thread. Do you mind if I copy/paste your info on the main page?

You're welcome. You can post that on the main page if you want. I'm personally doubting calcs from any fiction now, however, due to to internal inconsistencies. I don't have an idea of what I'll do in order to make use of myself. I may as well just go by what is true in canon and ignore all else.
