A sacred blade from the forges of Heaven, inhabited by a good spirit. It is a favoured weapon of the Shining One's servants, and cannot be wielded by the forces of evil.

"Quemadmodum gladius neminem occidit: occidentis telum est."
"A sword by itself does not slay; it is merely the weapon used by the slayer."

-Lucius Annaeus Seneca, _Epistulae Morales ad Lucilium_, Letter XXXVII:
Some arguments in favor of the simple life, l. 30. ca. 65. A.D.
trans. Richard Mott Gummere, 1917.

This weapon falls into the 'Long Blades' category. It is a one handed weapon.

Eudemon blades are a blessed weapon, slightly stronger than the demon blade it was formed from. Like the sacred scourge and trishula, it always has the holy wrath brand.

You can create a eudemon blade through the Shining One's 6* ability, or find them on angels and daevas. You can turn a eudemon blade back into a demon blade by using Kikubaaqudgha's or Lugonu's final ability to replace its brand with pain or distortion, though this is rarely a good trade.
