A powerfully enchanted short sword found in a secret compartment in a records room at Briarstone Asylum. Exquisite blade, pommel sculpted in the shape of a cardinal, elegant crimson scabbard. Carried by Grip after its discovery.
It was later learned to be the Trice family sword, first carried by Sir Evan Trice, a Knight of Ozem, over 900 years ago. Named as it is for having been baptized in the blood of so many vampires. Well-enchanted, specifics remain unknown.
In Chapter 28, Ray determined that it was a +2 short sword.
