Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
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.
