Brîshalgwin Mindmarker is an amulet in Pillars of Eternity.

Description[edit | edit source]

The brîshalgwin, or "mind hunters," were known throughout Eir Glanfath centuries before Aedyran and Vailian animancers introduced formal scholarship on ciphers to the continent. They were respected – and feared – for their abilities to perceive soul connections.

When Aedyran colonists first settled in the Dyrwood, they quickly aroused the ire of their Glanfathan neighbors by trespassing – sometimes accidentally and sometimes intentionally – on Engwithan ruins. An orlan of the Three-Tusk Stelgaer tribe, a mute but preternaturally gifted cipher, used her abilities to monitor the border ruins and track the colonists who encroached upon them. To aid in her investigations, the anamfath of Three-Tusk Stelgaer gave her this amulet, thought to be a relic of the Engwithans themselves. The public gift of such a revered artifact was a political move as well as a practical one, and it galvanized Glanfathan resistance to the settlers, particularly within Three-Tusk Stelgaer. It was lost, however, when the cipher was killed in a raid on a farming settlement.
