The Scepter, also known as the Sarafan Symbol Club was a weapon wielded by Kain in Blood Omen 2.[1]


The Scepter first appeared in the Upper City in the hands of the Sarafan priests controlled by Marcus, it was a club fashioned in the shape of the Sarafan symbol. It shared many attacks in common with the Club and was a stronger, faster version of it[Blood Omen 2].[2][3]

Kain armed with the Scepter

The Stealth kills of the Scepter included a decapitation and a downward smash to the back (the same as the spiked club without the jump). If Grabbed, Kain could smash an opponent in the groin or 'bat' them across the room[Blood Omen 2].[2]


  • In-game debug information refers to this weapon as the "Scepter"[Blood Omen 2].
  • Some player guides identify the Scepter primarily by its Sarafan symbol, calling it the "Sarafan Axe"[2] or "Sarafan Staff".[3]
  • Prima's Blood Omen 2 Guide does not give the scepter a name; the presence of the scepter icon in pictures suggests that the weapon was used during the walkthrough, but it is not mentioned in text.[4]

When holding a grabbed opponent you can do three weak hits by pressing the attack button, do a heavy attack by pressing up and attack, or throw them a great distance by pressing up and the grab button. I recommend to inflict the most damage is to do two weak hits and finish off with either the heavy attack or throw.". GameFAQS. Blood Omen 2 Strategy Guide (2002)(by Chetflavin).
