Once the sword of Thanatos, the God of Death discarded Nightbringer in favor of the Godslayer when Sheba delivered it to his hands. Despite Thanatos' indifference towards his former weapon, Nightbringer remains a potent and capable artifact in its own right. It is a sentient blade, supposedly forged from a drop of blood shed by an ancient god who was cut by the mote of absolute evil that formed the Abyss. It is said that the wielder of the blade is granted power over the dead and that it feeds upon the souls of those it slays to add to its terrible power. Nightbringer is very choosy when it comes to its owners and therefore remains hidden until a worthy wielder is found.
