Lightbringer Item in Saleh'Alire | World Anvil


The Vestige of An'hang

There will come a time when the darkness must be banished once more. This sword will be my light in this world when that time comes- gifted to they who prove themselves most worthy of it... Until that time, guard it close, for the darkness would seek to reclaim it if it so could.
An'hang speaking to a Red Priest


  Lightbringer is a Greatsword fabled to have been forged by the God An'hang himself after his ascension to Divine status, and gifted to his Divine Champion Katyana Pandhi. When Katyana fell in battle some time in 2406, the sword was then given by An'hang to another of his Red Priests. According to myth, the Priest was tasked with guarding it until another worthy Champion stepped forward; from there record of the sword ceases to exist, and it no longer appears in mythology.

Like all Vestiges, without a worthy owner Lightbringer is believed to have reverted to its Dormant State upon Katyana's death. According to mythos, in its dormant state it appears just as any other Greatsword would- though it is rumored to have a rain guard in the shape of a sun, with two much more elongated rays that form its crossguard. Further accounts of the sword tell of a pommel made of a vibrant red gem of some sort, carved with the symbol of An'hang. Since Vestiges have not been extensively studied and the sword has not been seen in centuries, however, the accuracy of this information cannot be truthfully verified.

Its location is only known to the oldest and most devoted of the Red Priests to whom An'hang has personally revealed his divine visions within the flames.
