Grimoire (魔道書 Madōsho), also known as Code (コード Kōdo), is the item within the BlazBlue universe that contain knowledge on how to perform Ars Magus.
Grimoires are used to control and access Ars Magus and were developed during the First War of Ars Magus. The Novus Orbis Librarium manages and creates Grimoires, meaning they have a sort of monopoly on it; because of their control of Grimoires, and the latter part of their name, they earned the monkier of 'The Library'.
Despite their name, Grimoires don't appear as books, generally speaking, and can appear as a multitude of different objects, the Truth Grimoire appearing as a hand-held mirror, for example. The most infamous and powerful Grimoire of them all is the Azure Grimoire, which can tap into the power of the Azure.
