The Light Forge Tridents were first encountered by Raziel when he traveled to the Light Forge in the cliffs of the Great Southern Lake, shortly after he arrived in the history preceding Blood Omen. Inside the forge, these tridents could be found adorning the walls of several of the forge rooms and they could freely be picked up and used against the Shade and Undead Thrall enemies in the forge.[Soul Reaver 2][Soul Reaver 2/4]
Light Forge tridents were two-handed Trident/Halberd variant weapons; with a longer range and more power than sword variants, but at the cost of attacking speed. They were faster but less powerful than axe variant weapons[Soul Reaver 2][Soul Reaver 2 manual][Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)].
- Like many of the weapons in Soul Reaver 2, Light Forge tridents are not explicitly named in-game. In many guides and sources, weapons are divided by generally into one- or two-handed weapons[Soul Reaver 2 manual], or into general weapon families[Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)](with the light forge tridents a two-handed and Tridents/Halberds variant). The weapon is labeled as "ltimpale" in game files.[Soul Reaver 2]
- Along with the Dark Forge staffs, Light Forge halberds and Air Forge axes, Light Forge tridents are one of four weapon variants found exclusively in elemental forges[Soul Reaver 2] and they may therefore be Ancient vampire creations.
