This blade is believed to have been forged by a follower of Vecna, who trapped numerous spirits and turned them into will-o-wisps to do his bidding. The blade harnesses the power of these entrapped spirits to ensnare and bombard enemies with necrotic powers. To avoid detection, the blade was able to be dispelled, during which the evil magic within the hilt is unable to be detected.
