This sword was the personal weapon of Karuz, sorceror-king of Milantos. At his direction, Milantan sorcerers had been kidnapping villagers of neighboring Souia-Vey to perform foul rituals upon them. Their depredations were halted by the arrival of the hero, Brador, who fought with a great sword of ice. Karuz decided to end Brador's interference personally, and brought forth his own terrible weapon to do battle with the interloper. There was a great clash, which laid waste to the land all around them. When the dust and darkness cleared, neither Karuz nor his foe were anywhere to be found.
