Kanalith was an elven swordsmith with a talent for magic. There was no finer weapons made that weren’t by his hands. He forged all of the swords used by elven champions, and many of his creations became things of legends.
His specialty were the fine sets of matching swords that he created specifically for those who fought with two weapons. The finest set he created were the Anjadeomin. These swords were forged of moonsilver, which was as beautiful as silver, and as strong as steel (and much easier to work magic into). He worked various enchantments into them, as he did into all of his swords. One was named Kestal (Hope), and one was named Khalith (Courage). Their true power, however, was revealed when one sword was struck against the other. When that occurred, they glowed with what he called Sessiul De’aster (The Light of Truth). This was a brilliant white light that was tangible positive energy. It healed and protected, and held things of the Dark at bay. The Andjadeomin were presented to one of the greatest champions of the elvish people.
A few years after he created the swords, Kanalith’s wife was killed by an enemy of his. Some say that he went mad. Others said that his want for revenge blackened his heart. Either way, he was a different person after that. He only created one other set of swords, the Tanaldeomin. Into these swords, he forged a terrible curse. They looked very much like their sister set, only tinged with a dark cast. One was named Plithut (Hatred), and the other was named Treemma (Fear). Their power was to cast a dark, terrible light: Sessiul De’streea, the Light of Death. This light caused pain and death in whatever it touched, except the wielder of the blades. With these blades, Kanalith killed he who killed his wife. Then he turned the blades on himself.
The Andjadeomin were passed down through the generations in the family of the elven champions. Currently, they are owned by Demetria Silvereye, the only child of Belesen, his daughter by a human wife.
The Tanaldeomin passed from owner to owner and worked much harm in the world. Their current owner is unknown.
When the swords are struck together, they produce a magical light, as described above. The white light is healing and protective energy, while the dark light is destructive energy. There is also evidence that the Tanaldeomin are cursed, for every owner has come to a bad end, whether by his own actions, or the actions of another.
The two different magical energies will cancel each other out, should they be activated in the same area.
