sentient spear of obsidian
This 3 foot shard was found by Jerrod on his way into the jungles. Upon discovery, the shard flew from his hand of its own accord, impaling the magician Tibibe. Shortly after, the shard also burst through the torso of the final man Jerrod had been travelling with after they’d quarreled over its ownership.
Darkness is very intelligent, able to communicate with Jerrod telepathically & possibly able to cause him sensation. The voice is female. When asked her identity – even her name – she seems confused & unsure. She seems to know much but her own name escapes her. She has asked to be called Darkness, for the simple reason that she cannot see – only feel & hear. She also has some sort of third sense that acts like sight, but seems to be able to feel things outside the normal realm of experience (magic energy, vibrations, etc).
It was Darkness who helped Jerrod through the Temple of the Architect of Violence, eventually coming upon the others, & proved useful later on when escaping from the Spider Chasm. Also, she helped to discover & identify the corpse of Lambanein. It was revealed that Darkness could float of her own will in any direction, & she gathered a few golden rings for Jerrod in the room of Veils (where the blue panther was located)
Darkness does her best to protect Jerrod, though it is obvious nothing is known about her beyond her usefulness.
