In AssailEdit

It was revealed that Svalthbrul's original owner was Ut'el Anag, a Bonecaster of the Kerluhm T'lan Imass.[4] He had used it to spear the Jaghut matriarch high in the Salt Range over 30,000 years ago. She pulled the spear with her as she seemingly fell to her death in the abyss.[5]

The spear was also used by Orman to slay Buri and unleash the Jaghut icewall onto the Iceblood Holdings, the lowlands, and the Sea of Gold.[6]
