When Fitzallus the Footpad, a Sembian bard, had this heavy crossbow commissioned, he talked endlessly about how incredible the weapon would be. His friends teased him that the crossbow was his new "best friend" and that he should name it. Finally, the crossbow was ready, and Fitzallus strode into the tavern with the gleaming weapon and proudly introduced it as "Harold." Fitzallus died during a burglary several months later, and though his will specified he be buried with Harold, the crossbow vanished before the ceremony.
