Abridged Guide to Evil Wikia

"Gods but I hate dying"
―the Barrow Sword[1]

The Barrow Sword is an Evil Name. The Name is tied to an old bronze sword and bronze scale suit. [2]

The bronze sword's name is called Pinon. It is noted to not be of Dominion work despite being found in Levant by Ishaq Deathless. [1] According to Hanno, Pinon felt "Ligurian to his senses, but deeper somehow". [3]

The sword has an eagerness to feed on souls. [1] It also has a preference for souls already claimed. [1]

Once wielded, the owner of Pinon is unable to be free of the sword, even if the owner wishes to. [1]


After inflicting an injury, Pinon is able to consume bits of its victim's soul. [1]

The Barrow Sword is capable of ressurection, using an amount of souls consumed by Pinon to return. [1]

The bronze scale suit is strong enough to withstand a blow from the Drake, one of the Scourges of the Dead King.
