I'm honestly not sure how prevalent such ranks are outside of video games. It wouldn't surprise me if they actually reflective of a grading system in Japan, given that the games I can recall such rankings being in are from there, but I am clearly quite ignorant of the origin of the E, D, C, B, A, S rank system. I just know my fighters in Fire Emblem do better the closer they are to S.
In any case, it felt an approrpriate way to put it here, and from my perspective, at least, "S" feels sort of a like an 11 on a 1-10 scale.
Pandora's uncertainty is inspired by my own a while back when I considered whether Sarah would awaken before or after she had enough power to cast this spell without assistance. The conclusion I reached was that this was a special case, and it could go either way, really.
