Itkovian by Daniel Knoblich

Interpretation of Itkovian, Shield Anvil of Fener by Daniel Knoblich

A Shield Anvil was "the mortal repository for the fallen (dead), sworn to a particular god."[1] Also described as a mortal soul, to assume the sorrow of the world on behalf of a god. Along with the Mortal Sword and the Destriant, they formed the triumvirate which represented a particular faith.

Notable Shield AnvilsEdit

In Memories of IceEdit

Shield Anvil Itkovian, Mortal Sword Brukhalian, and Destriant Karnadas led the Grey Swords in defence of Capustan against the armies of the Pannion Domin. At the Siege of Coral, Itkovian embraced the pain of the gathered T'lan Imass.[2]

In The BonehuntersEdit

When Heboric stopped the fall of the jade strangers upon Otataral Island, he suddenly realized he was a Shield Anvil and took their pain upon himself.[3]

In Reaper's GaleEdit

A Shield Ancil was known as a T'orrud Segul in the language of the First Empire.[4]
