Thirteen Apostles (十三 使徒)
As Modern Magic is created from highly advanced science and technology, few Countries were able to develop strong military-grade magics. As a result, only a handful of Countries were able to develop Strategic-Class Magic that would rival weapons of mass destruction.
However with the continuing practice of providing developed magic to Ally Nations, it also became normal to acknowledge Allied Magicians as Strategic-Class Magicians for their high capabilities with Strategic-Class Magic.
Out of the 50 Magicians speculated to possess Strategic-Class Magic, only 13 of these Strategic Class Magicians have had their identity revealed for the sake of national prestige. This group of invaluable, powerful individuals is known throughout the world as the 'Thirteen Apostles'.
Since they are the trump cards of the nation they serve, their presence and military service in their respective countries greatly affects the international military balance. Because of this fact, the Thirteen Apostles are heavily monitored by both their own country and other major powers in the world in order to keep them in check. As a result, these Strategic-Class Magicians lack privacy in their lives. The only one who has managed to keep a modicum of secrecy is the USNA's Angie Sirius, whose real identity is not known.
As of 2095, countries have only demonstrated their Strategic Magics without applying them for actual combat use and are only theorized in how they can be used for actual military engagements. After the deployment of Strategic-Class Magic 'Material Burst' by the Japanese military during Scorched Halloween, the New Soviet Union's military leadership started reconsidering the effectiveness of large scale magic. 
As of April, 2095 A.D., there are Thirteen Magicians publicly announced nationally for their skill in Strategic-Class Magic. They are called the Thirteen Apostles, and are seen as a big factor in the world's military balance. Their affiliations, names, and magic’s are detailed below:
Since the event of Scorched Halloween, the number of internationally acknowledged Strategic-Class Magicians in the world has been reduced to twelve with the death of the "Heavenly General", Liú Yúndé.
