Thousands of people have felt the cold Sunmetal of the Interrogator's Knuckle kissing their cheek. It was their final sensation, a culmination of years of torture and brutality all coming to a head. To many it was relief, a sip of cool water amidst a ever-lasting thirst. In reality, it symbolized the end of a prisoners suffering, for if the Interrogator's Knuckle touched you, the Haimarchy had no more need of you.
A Parting KissThe Interrogator's Knuckle is a ring that uses Auric Magic to sap the final emotions and confessions from prisoners sentenced to Death. They are given as a badge of office of The Verin Haimarchy's highest ranking enforcers. Many of these rings become Affinities over centuries of use; a side effect of absorbing the raw emotions and final thoughts of those sentenced to death.
