Jay Freeman is said to be 'The Pure one' which is pointed out by Elysiar who bestows Jay 'The Century Blade'.

This pure one was to defend it's own era from inevitable extinction. The Pure one being Jay is constantly debunked by Jay as he says "The pure one is certainly not a kid from New Zealand". When Carmen and Arasus stress his title of being the pure one, Jay says "Anyone could be the Pure One...It could even be Grumpy!".
Jay later on learns all the magic abilities of Potentia in which he uses in conjunction with his sword 'The Century Blade'. He is powerful enough to take on the likes of Arasus and Carmen.
