Memory Sleuth. Upon slicing a target wielder gains the memories of the last 2 hours of the target. The target cannot resist their memories being taken through their blood as long as they are alive. This feature does not affect undead creatures.
Absorb Memories. If an attack from the Dagger of Memories brings a creature to 0 hit points, all blood is drunk by the dagger and all of the target's memories since birth are stored in the blade. The wielder must make a Wisdom save (DC 14) when this happens or be taken over for 12 hours as they are overwhelmed by the memories they have stolen.
Recall. If the dagger is merely plunged into a target and drawn immediately then wielder gains the memories of the target from the last 2 days. But this is all at the DM'S discretion as to how long ago in the targets past the blade sees from drinking their blood, and how much blood is required. Also up to the DM is how long the memories stay intact inside the blade.
