Artifact

Makuramasa
Level 4 Orichalcum Short Powerbow

Makuramasa, it is said, was created by a Dawn by the name of Juri Padenal during the High First Age. He was a notable weaponsmith, even rivaling the creations of some of the Twilights of the time. The bow was first carved from obsidian created by Heseish's Breath, the largest volcano in the Southern Bordermarches. Juri then applied orichalcum into specially carved grooves with painstacking caution, allowing the Solar metal to solidify and strengthen the fragile glass. Finally, the bow was strung with the heartstring of Agniparvata, a huge fiery behemoth that acted as the guardian of Heseish's Breath.

When Makuramasa is used, the shot is bolstered by the Solar essence that infuses the bow; the shot is modified as per the Righteous Judgement Arrow effect of Essence Arrow Attack. However, if an arrow is aimed sunward and released, the shaft of wood shatters as five copies made from pure sunlight emerge and fall towards the wielder's intended target. The damage from these arrows is considered Holy, and the arrows are unblockable without the use of Charms.

Apatika
Level 2 Behemoth

In its natural form, Apatika takes the form of a massive horned owl with a wingspan of nearly 30 feet , seemingly made of the gem sands that fill portions of the Southern Bordermarches. Its wings are primarily sapphire and emerald, with claws and beak made from diamond and its eyes from ruby sands. If asked by its owner, Apatika can bear seven with relative ease. The behemoth can also reduce itself in size to that of a Creationborn owl, although it is still obviously made of the gem sands.

Musireca
Level 1 Waking Circle Spell

This quiver, able to hold twenty arrows, was spun from the Cup Grace of a common Warrior known in his court as the Breathdrinker. When he fed, he would give his victim as passionate kiss, draining their breath as well as their Vitrues. Musireca transfers this ability to the arrows placed within the quiver, as well as increasing the user's skill with a bow.

First and foremost, the quiver grants the user a permanent 2-dot Archery specialty for Bows, as well as an additional dot of Dexterity. If an attack with an arrow from Musireca strikes true, the Raksha's player rolls a feeding Grace. As long as the target's Willpower+Essence is not greater than the Raksha's Willpower, the arrow drains a dot of the targeted Virtue per success; two motes are given to the wielder per dot drained. However, if the victim is an unExalted Mortal, the Raksha may choose to tear forth up to a total of twice their feeding Grace in dots of the applicable Virtue or Willpower, gaining two motes per dot as per usual; this is an automatic, unrolled effect.

Charms:
Assumption of Elemental Shape (Air) (One mutation point) - The quiver itself, formed from strands of clouds woven together
Heart-Stealing Kiss (Three mutation points), modified by Mortal-Shattering Thirst (Three mutation points)
Surpassing Excellence (One mutation point) - The owner is imbued with some of the Breathdrinker's skill with a bow.
Glorious Hero Form (Two mutation points) - The owner is imbued with some of the Breathdrinker's skill with a bow.

Personal Information

Appearance

Anaikya stands at about 6'5", his rather handsome male form seemingly made from adamant. His features are somewhat Southern in form, with piercing silver eyes and short hair spun from black diamonds. He wears a set of lamellar made from the dreams of his former mistress, given to him by the Eclipse herself. At his side is a short sword made of his devotion to her, and a short powerbow made of orichalcum and obsidian sits on his back along with a cloudspun quiver.

Around his neck is a small glass vial on a red ribbon, inside of which is a small sandstorm; looking into the sand reveals an image of Anaikya himself. This is his Heart; although he has carried it since his return to Jairika's freehold, it still truly belongs to his mistress.

History

At one point, the Artisan Jairika was attempting to develop an easy way to transport large numbers of soldiers through the Wyld. After a few expermients, Anakiya was the final result; a Cataphract who could split himself up into a sizable number of common Warriors and Workers. Happy with her work, she gifted the Eclipse known as Seven-Song Yukiko with her creation, as the two had become quite close over the centuries. Yukiko was given Anaikya's Heart and she used her new bodyguard with much glee, both on the battlefield and in the bedroom.

Alas, Yukiko was slain during the Usurpation. Heartbroken, Anaikya returned to Jairika's freehold and remained ever vigilant for the return of his mistress. Until recently, he thought that she may never come back. However, a traveling group of Solars has recently arrived at the freehold, and one of them seems quite familiar to the Cataphract…
