Legacy of Kain Wiki

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


The Air Reaver was an enhancement for the Wraith Blade. It was the third enhancement discovered by Raziel, found in the Era following Blood Omen as Raziel investigated the mountains beyond Uschtenheim and Janos Audron's Retreat and uncovered the Air Forge. Solving the puzzle of the forge, Raziel was able to imbue the Wraith blade with elemental Air, creating the Air Reaver.[Soul Reaver 2/6][Soul Reaver 2]

The Air Reaver manifested as a white cored blade with waving white energy. The Air Reaver could be used to activate special Air plinths, providing Raziel with an updraft with which he could ascend by Gliding. Alongside this, Reaver bolts from the Air Reaver could be used to obliterate Cracked doors and allow him passage where they had previously blocked his path. The Air Reaver also had an effect on Raziel's movement, making him lightweight and allowing easier passage through the murky swamp water.[Soul Reaver 2][Soul Reaver 2/6][Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)].[1] As with other wraith blade enhancements in Soul Reaver 2, the Air Reaver was only temporary and would be lost upon Shifting to the Spectral Realm, but it could be re-imbued at air attuned Reaver fonts[Soul Reaver 2][Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)][Soul Reaver 2 manual].

A more permanent Air Reaver enhancement would be featured in Legacy of Kain: Defiance[Defiance], this time acquired fourth, after the permanent Fire Reaver[Defiance/6].
