Interpretation of Mortal Sword Brukhalian by dejan-delic

A Mortal Sword was a god's mortal defender, a manifestation of the god's own sword. Along with the Shield Anvil and the Destriant, it formed the mortal triumvirate which represented a particular faith. The Mortal Sword seemed to take military and overall command of a god's reve.

Quick Ben claimed the title existed since before to the analogous position of Knight was added within the High Houses in the Deck of Dragons.[1]

In Memories of Ice[]

Mortal Sword Brukhalian, Shield Anvil Itkovian, and Destriant Karnadas led the Grey Swords in defence of Capustan against the armies of the Pannion Domin.
