The Penitent, the Blade of Courage (also named Vosh Rakh in Orcish), is the legendary blade of Trinimac used in ancient times. Statues depicting Trinimac often show him holding his sword, and worshipers of the god swear by it for aid. Priests of Trinimac consider themselves blessed by the holy sword Penitent, and that his blessing is his sword and shield being at one's side to protect them. The Vosh Rakh, an Orcish extremist faction, named themselves after the blade's Orcish name as they considered themselves a manifestation of it to "cut a path through stifling traditions", with some members bearing the rank "penitent". The name of the sword is often used as a possessive adjective in regards to worship of Trinimac. Malacath also wields a greatsword, but it is unknown if there is any connection.

Poetic Edda[edit]

The Poetic Edda is an ancient collection of poems, stories, and legends that depict the extensive history of Skyrim, which is why it earned the moniker, "the living history of Skyrim." For an untold amount of time, bards and skalds have contributed to the Poetic Edda, which is often kept by the Bards College of Solitude.

Prismatic Core[edit]

The Prismatic Core

The Prismatic Core was a powerful crystal that powered the Prismatic Weapon, created by the willing sacrifices of many priestesses of Meridia. It was given to the forces of the Ayleid city-state of Delodiil during the early First Era, so that they could defeat their Molag Bal-worshipping enemy of Abagarlas and destroy the Mortuum Vivicus. The destruction of Abagarlas was successful, but the weapon was ruined in the attempt. The crystal powering it was salvaged, although drained of its power, and five Ayleid heroes set out to the Dwemer ruin of Mzeneldt to hide the crystal so that the forces of Bal could not find it. The priestess Valasha sacrificed herself to re-power the crystal, with the rest of the heroes giving their lives to safeguard. It was later recovered by the Fighters Guild in 2E 582 and re-forged into the Prismatic Weapon by Merric at-Aswala, assisted by the Vestige. The Prismatic Weapon was used by the guild's champions to destroy the Mortuum Vivicus once and for all.
