The Dark Reaver was a temporary elemental enhancement for the Wraith Blade. Presumably of Ancient vampire origin, it was wielded by Raziel in Soul Reaver 2

Role[edit | edit source]

The Dark Reaver was an enhancement for the Wraith Blade. It was discovered by Raziel in the Pre-Blood Omen era at the start of Soul Reaver 2 as Raziel investigated the swamp and found the Dark Forge. Solving the puzzle of the forge, Raziel was able to imbue the Wraith blade with elemental Darkness, creating the Dark Reaver.[SR2][SR2-C3]

The Dark Reaver manifested as a blade with a black core and waving purple energy. The Dark Reaver could be used to activate Shadow bridges, whilst Reaver bolts from the Dark Reaver allowed Raziel to blind Sentry Eyes and pass them unseen[SR2][1][2]. As with other wraith blade enhancements in Soul Reaver 2, the Dark Reaver was only temporary and would be lost upon Shifting to the Spectral Realm, but it could be re-imbued at darkness attuned Reaver fonts[SR2][SR2-C3][1][3].

A more permanent Dark Reaver enhancement would be featured in Legacy of Kain: Defiance[DEF].
