Pird's Daggers

Lightning Rods

Pird flipped a dagger from its sheath, catching it by the tip of its blade. He brought it over his shoulder and flung it forward, summoning a portion of his magic to shoot up his arm into the blade. The blade spun in a blur, flashing as it caught light that wasn't there, and skimmed past the bug's long face to thud into its shoulder.

Pird's Dagger
Pird’s daggers were originally forged as a single blade by Karatak the Third under Senallus the First’s instruction. This blade and its array were carefully split into two daggers. This pair of unique ‘half’ arrays creates a tangible relationship between the two daggers, a fluctuating charged field that requires only a spark of Aetherium energy to ignite a lightning arc from one blade to the other.

Pird is creative with his weapons. By summoning a bolt right before striking he can stun or incapacitate a foe without doing real harm. With Zook’s help, the daggers can also act as a kind of defibrillator. While channeled, however, the arc between the blades rapidly grows violent and deadly, capable of instantly killing through massive amperage.

The silver blue deepens into a dark amethyst when channeled, its arrays lit by near-white violet and silver. When brought close together the nature of their forging is clear, as their arrays crawl off one blade to continue on to the other.
