Sword of Bravery converted

The Espada ng Katapangan (lit. Sword of Bravery) is the first weapon form of the Bakal na Krus. It symbolizes Datu Mangaraw's bravery. This is the most widely used weapon form, used by Juan.

Juan needs to learn the real meaning of bravery for him to unleash the sword. Mang Pepe said that, bravery does not mean the absence of fear. Rather, to have the greatest fear and the will to acknowledge and face it. But instead of taking the advice of Pepe, Juan insists that he is strong because he has nothing to fear of.

Until one night, fighting as a vigilante, he runs after a crime syndicate Franco and encounter him fearlessly. He jumps and hold on the roof of the moving car driven by Franco. Unfortunately, Juan fell down and roll on the ground when the car brakes. The refugee takes advantage of Juan lying on the ground and shoot him immediately. Bathing in blood, Juan force himself to grasp the bakal na krus that is a few inches away from him. Just in time when Franco attempts to shoot the crying orphan on the streetside, he gets the bakal na krus and it turns as a sword. The sword reflects the bullet and hits Franco.
