An Observer (옵저버, objeobeo) is a special device used by Scouts. Their main use is to collect visual data and pass the information on to both the Scout themselves and also to allied Light Bearers, who in turn analyse these data and coordinate their own team accordingly.
Observers have other functions that Scouts can utilise such as being able to illuminate the darkness, being able to project holograms and hiding one's presence. Observers can also assist two Lighthouses in performing the technique "flow control".
Usually, a Scout can control several Observers at once so they can serve as extra fields of vision capable of detecting a certain range.
Like other devices, such as Pockets and Arms Inventories, Observes can be personalised to suit the Scout. Observers are subject to Ranking and Grading, with the D0-rank White-X being an example; it was also shown that the functions of higher ranking Observers work completely on Observers and Lighthouses of lower ranking. It is unknown if an Observer's visual range and ability to discern and process data would increase with its Ranking.
Observers were not always used only for reconnaissance. In ancient Tower history, when the war was at its peak and there was no protection from families or guilds, Scouts needed all the fighting power they could get. As such, ancient Observers were more battle oriented. One such Observer is "Purple Dementor".
