This longsword contains the soul of a chaotic good ranger named Harrikas of Tethyr, trapped in the green gem in the sword’s pommel.
Harrikas has not adjusted well to life as an intelligent weapon; he suffered this fate on a whim of Halaster. The Mad Mage caught the ranger and trapped his soul within the pommel gem of his own sword.
Harrikas has spent years in this lonely corner of Undermountain, fighting phantoms in his mind, but he rejoiced at finding living companions once again. He is still haunted by hallucinations from time to time.
The sword is chaotic good, and prefers to be wielded by those with a good alignment, and will refuse to be wielded by those of evil alignment. He seeks to be freed from his prison and to get revenge on Halaster for imprisoning him.
