This is the same hand crossbow the Warforged was fitted with when he finished his relearning period, and was given his first mission by his creator. This was infused with the souls of the dead Masters of Canneth by the Leonal Guardian of the Council of Nine, who had tasked him and his party with the retrieval of the Omega Crystal. It has started to awaken after the Warforged’s venture into the Canneth vault holding an Orb of Annihilation.
