The Mercenaries of St. Vicious
Malfincus is a six foot long ebony sword taken from a statue of Etherox. The “real” Malfincus is said to have belonged to the real Etherox. Like the sword of legend, our Malfincus has several circles down the length of its blade.
In all the legends, the sword was used to cut the heads off of Etherox‘s children right before he ate them. But the language in all the old songs is quite strange: The sword isn’t described so much as a cutting implement or weapon, but a key – something that’s always opening other things.
