|“||Every single one the Praying Hands is but myself.||”|
—Bondrewd to Nanachi
The Praying Hands, or Umbra Hands as Bondrewd calls them, is the name of Bondrewd's group of delvers. All members of the Umbra Hands are Black Whistles to whom Bondrewd has spread his consciousness to via the Zoaholic. They carry out most of Bondrewd's work for him. Most of them are located at Ido front, as it is harder for Bondrewd to control them across layers. When Bondrewd's body dies, he transfers his consciousness into one of his Umbra Hands so he can live on and continue his research.
