SORA is the satellite belonging to the country of Misgarth. Sartorius was awarded the keys to this satellite by Prince Ojin upon winning their Duel. In the Japanese version of the anime, it was capable of wiping out all life on the planet. In the dub, the SORA would brainwash all life on the planet to become slaves to The Light of Destruction. What the satellite does is changed, though the footage of the fires starting when it starts to blast the Earth isn't edited out.
