I fear that is not a spear, but a man.
The Spear of Zilopnou
Is one wrapped in mystery, as there were many alive during his time, there are numerous myths and legends about the spear— none are correct. The spear was one wielded by the famous Tichan Zilopnou, the founder of the nation of Zilopnou
. Despite being of great importance to the Lliaqeu
— the spear went missing after the late king's death.
The shorn general
One of most popular myths surrounding the spear is that of Zilopnou's encounter with the Ponouli
military leader known as the shorn general
. The king faced the general in battle, and according to legend, he had been defeated, and left pinned to the ground beneath the general's heel— his spear just out of reach. Witnesses on the battlefield claim to have seen a verdant light flashing from the scene, and the spear standing upright— plunging itself through the general's heart of its own accord, shearing the shorn general of his flesh.
And the dreaded general fell,
though his concubines had wished him well,
the spear punctured his heart,
so that from this world,
he would depart.
