The Hilt of Many Blades is a standoffish, overconfident and inquisitive blade. It doesn't like talking to people, aside from its wielder. It generally has a positive outlook on life and laughs in the face of danger, always liking a challenge. It trusts his wielder easily but it takes time for it to trust party members. The Hilt of Many Blades seeks battle and combat to test itself, it doesn't mind being ruthless. It is easy to please with killing, murder, and treasure. It can also be pleased by a simple conversation from time to time as being trapped in an anvil locked in a tomb for thousands of years has made it realize how incredibly lonely it is. It energetically lusts to gather knowledge so that it may never fail its wielder. It values the life of its wielder and will do whatever it takes to protect them to continue the blood bathes its wielder provides. If left alone for more than a day it begins to feel lonely and will seek to impress its wielder demanding to be used in battle.
