Baptism is a ceremony in which a Pandora officially acknowledges a Limiter as her bond-partner. The ceremony entails a Pandora removing one of her Stigmata and re-implanting it into the Limiter to create the bond known as an Ereinbar Set, which allows the Limiter to use Freezing. This is usually done in the form of a First Room Invitation (初部屋入り ; Hatsu Heya-iri), where a Pandora invites her chosen Limiter to her room to perform it.
The Baptism ceremony has likely existed since the first introduction of Limiters, in 2053. A Pandora usually waits until her second-year to perform a Baptism, to ensure her Stigmata have matured sufficiently. A Limiter is usually one year younger than his partner.
A Baptism usually only takes place between two individuals, but this is not always the case. It is possible for a Pandora with a large number of Stigmata to Baptise with multiple Limiters at the same time, enabling all of them to use Freezing.
- "Baptism" is also the name of the Christian sacrament of admission and adoption, where an individual is recognized as a member of the Church. In some faiths, it is also the means by which a member gains salvation, access to heaven, or other sacred rites.
