Unlike the other Grand Houses of Vahalia, who have all been gifted one divine relic by their parent god, House Blackwood has been gifted with three.
When the War of the Gods came to a victorious end and the Grand Houses were created, Kivoc gifted House Blackwood with three vials of his essence, which he gave to them in a chest made of marble and gold.
The first to receive a vial was William the Warlord – the first Lord of House Blackwood – who proved his skills in battle during the war. Lord William’s vial contained Kivoc’s blood, which gives you the ability to cloak your surroundings from enemies.
The next to receive a vial was Prince Geoffrey – the heir of House Blackwood – who proved his bravery when faced against his enemies and those stronger than him. Prince Geoffrey’s vial was filled with Kivoc’s tears, which gives you the ability to see those who have departed to Allahos or Demonos.
The last to receive a vial was Prince Edward – the youngest of the Blackwood children – who proved his skills in strategy and wits when faced against great odds. Prince Edward’s vial was filled with a lock a Kivoc’s hair, which gives you the ability to seek and pull the truth from those who wish to deceive you.
Alas, due to their powers, the three relics have been separated in order to keep them out of enemies’ hands.
Each keeper of a vial passes it down to another person who’s worthy to carry them.
