"May your enemies fear you and never know from where or with what enchantment you shall strike."Syl[1]

Ruin's Edge is a Mazken dark bow associated with Syl, Duchess of Dementia at the beginning of the Greymarch of 3E 433.[2] The fabled bow applies a random enchantment to each arrow; it has been known to cause paralysis, silence, demoralisation, frenzy, burden,[2] and frost damage, and to drain magicka. The bow itself is ribbed Daedric ebony inlaid with a moving eyeball.[3]

In 3E 433, Sheogorath sent the Champion of Cyrodiil to Syl's court to become a courtier of the House of Dementia. After revealing a conspiracy in Crucible to assassinate the Duchess, Syl rewarded the Champion with Ruin's Edge.[2] By 4E 201 the bow had left the Shivering Isles and had come into the possession of a bandit chief. It was recovered from the bandit by the Last Dragonborn in Stony Creek Cave, a small natural cave in the Eastmarch region of Skyrim.[4]
