Weapon (dagger), artifact (requires attunement)

This dagger appears to be made of an amalgamation of various metals welded together with no particular style, making it look like many different daggers were broken up and put back together to make it. This dagger was made for Saint Emmett the Abomination, an Aasimar Cleric who was known for his grotesque appearance, but unending selflessness. He would perform miracles for the people at the cost of his appearance and individuality. When he had resurrected a master smith's daughter after she had died of illness, he was gifted with this dagger designed for his mutated hand, which had become so malformed that he could not properly wield any other weapon. Upon Emmett's death, this dagger was enchanted with preserving magic and was to be sent to Emmett's home village for safe keeping. During its journey, it was lost during a bandit attack and fell into a raging river, drifting away to some unknown location. The dagger has since appeared in the hands of numerous people throughout history, who tried to use this dagger only for it to be knocked out of their hand and lost in the confusion of battle.

This dagger's blade is vicious in shape after years of being battered and used and causes deep, painful wounds. Every time this dagger successfully lands a hit, the target takes 1d4 damage at the start of its turn from blood loss, with every additional hit adding another d4 to this damage to a maximum of 10d4 damage.

This dagger's handle is oddly shaped and is impossible to be held properly by anyone other than Emmett himself. Anyone who does not wear the Ring of Stars is not considered proficient with this dagger. In addition, this dagger vibrates painfully in the hand of its wielder, giving them disadvantage to hit and gives enemies advantage to disarm the wielder without the ring equipped.
