A gift given to a young soldier before he left to fight in the war of Black Trees, this blade earned its name through the efforts of its bearer. The gilded sword was a common sight on the battlefield, held aloft in challenge once the soldier spotted a target. His fellows would converge upon the foe, and time and time again they found victory.

Such was the sword's influence upon the morale of the troops that on the occasion that the soldier nearly succumbed to a hail of Glanfathan arrows, prompting a swift retreat, a frustrated commander decided that the sword should have a new name -- for it seemed to be what determined if they achieved shame or glory.
