"This artifact seemed as though it was made for that unusual lock. Now the door could be opened."

The Falcon Insignia was an artifact used by Kain in Defiance. It was the first quest-related item encountered by Kain and could be found in the Sarafan Stronghold in the chapter Pursue Moebius.


"This door had been equipped with a singular lock, requiring an unusual key. Somehow I would find it"

Kain finds the Falcon Insignia in the catacombs beneath the Sarafan Stronghold.

When Kain returned to the Sarafan Stronghold in the first chapter of Defiance, he noted a door with an unusually shaped locking mechanism in the 'chapter house' area of the stronghold and he resolved to find the key. By the conclusion of the chapter, Kain had confronted Moebius beneath the stronghold and discovered the unusually shaped Falcon Insignia embedded in a door in Moebius' chamber.

The artifact itself consisted of a golden falcon looking left with wings outstretched. A second bird in a darker shade of brown or grey was positioned behind the first, giving a border around the golden bird. Above the head of the golden bird, the second bird's neck was raised looking upward, giving the impression of it rising above the first.

In the third chapter Pursue Moebius, Kain's initial objectives revolved around the recovery and return of the Falcon Insignia and his first task involved collecting it from Moebius' chamber to open the door and allow him passage to exit the room. Upon returning to the chapter house Kain could place the item in the unusual lock he had seen earlier. This unlocked the Sealed Door behind and allowed him to ascend to the upper levels of the 'chapter house' and 'Sanctuary' areas of the stronghold - ultimately opening the way to the 'relic room' where Kain collected Malek's Shield.
