The Black Viper
A dagger with a mind of its own and picky about its users.
Although completely neutral to the callings of Good and evil, this dagger has an intelligence to it that is completely self-serving. It is said to choose who can wield it and it decides purely on it’s own opinion of how one person will benefit it over another. The blade is very intelligent, and can talk to its wielder as well. It has a very strong hatred of demons, though I have never puzzled out why.
This dagger is made from a black metal, with a silver viper’s head as the pommel. The blackness of the blade seems to absorb the light around it and the wielder gets the sense that the viper watches him/her.
The dagger can extend itself and grow, thus becoming a short sword, long sword or even a two handed sword. It is almost completely indestructible. It can fly on it’s own volition and attack without anyone wielding it. The viper head can bite with venom anyone who attempts to use it that it does not like. Once it bonds to a person though, it will become fiercely loyal to them and stop at nothing to aid and protect them. Its last owner was a Vampyre Prince by the name of Lucas. The dagger served him well until he met his demise in the fall of the Dark Prince.
