Gladden Darkfell, at this point in time, is a legendary assassin and somewhat of a folk hero among the half-elven. He is the first seer of elvish blood to be born in several centuries, and carries a number of magical items. Among them is a pair of stone daggers which can slice through steel as if it were cloth, and the Blade of Ashkelon, a very ancient sword with many mysteries. The sword is known to be extremely heavy, except for those with some magical gifting, and it is said that it is a weapon that no coward can wield. Its power is harmful, even deadly to those who do not possess great courage.
