Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
Seven centuries ago, the Vailian Duc Alfan med Roca contracted a group of Goldpact Knights to slay a dragon in the mountains that bordered his lands. The band's commander, Pietra Vives, returned alone three weeks later. She was the sole survivor.

Though the dragon bore grave wounds, it was not slain, she claimed, and thus she couldn't consider her duty discharged. She gathered another group of hunters, each as renowned with a blade or bow as she, paid them from her own coffers, and struck forth again. This time she returned with the head of the monster pulled behind her steed.

According to legend, Pietra led a master swordsmith into the hills to locate the corpse. He crafted a saber from each massive claw, and Pietra granted the weapons to the families of her fallen soldiers along with their share of the bounty. This particular blade passed down the Segreto family line, eventually following their flight from collapsing Vailia to the Deadfire and into the nascent Príncipi.
