Twin curved daggers embedded with a small chunk of moon rock pulled from the Silver Maiden's Chamber. The Falling Stars are gifts from Luniwyn, the Silver Maiden, to her Collectors, who traverse the liquid shadow, searching for souls ready for rebirth. These crescent daggers represent the wielder's sublime beauty as they slice through shadow and the formless skies brought by an endless void.
