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


The Fire Reaver was an enhancement for the Wraith Blade. It was the fourth and final enhancement gained in Soul Reaver 2, discovered by Raziel in Nosgoth's early history in the Fire Forge within Janos Audron's Retreat. Solving the puzzle of the forge, Raziel was able to imbue the Wraith blade with elemental Fire, creating the Fire Reaver.[Soul Reaver 2][Soul Reaver 2/8]

The Fire Reaver manifested as an orange cored blade with waving orange energy. The Fire Reaver enabled Raziel to activate a special Fire Plinth (most notably used to melt ice). As with the Light Reaver the glow of the Fire Reaver could be used to light up darkened areas.[Soul Reaver 2][Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)].[1] As with other wraith blade enhancements in Soul Reaver 2, the Fire Reaver was only temporary and would be lost upon Shifting to the Spectral Realm, but it could be re-imbued at fire attuned Reaver fonts[Soul Reaver 2][Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)][Soul Reaver 2 manual].

A more permanent Fire Reaver enhancement would be featured in Legacy of Kain: Defiance[Defiance].
