The Long Sword, also known as the Sarafan Symbol Sword, was a sword variant weapon that Raziel could wield in Soul Reaver 2. The Long Sword had a Sarafan Brotherhood symbol at the hilt of the blade and was initially found in the hands of Sarafan Warrior Swordsmen.
to be added
- Most of the Sarafan Warrior Inquisitors are depicted at some point wielding the Long Sword; though only Zephon, Rahab and Raziel are armed with it when confronted in the Sarafan Stronghold in Nosgoth's early history. (Murals in the Chapter House show Melchiah, Zephon and Dumah wielding it; as well as Malek's statue in the cloister courtyard in Legacy of Kain: Defiance - see below).
- The Long sword is labelled as "saraswrd" in game files.Template:Ref-SR2
- Despite the appearance of the Sarafan Warrior Swordsmen, the long sword does not appear in the Defiance comic, where a 'plainer' sword without the Sarafan symbol is seen in it's place; the same cosmetic change happens to the Sarafan Trident wielded by Sarafan Warrior Pikemen.
- The Long Sword would not feature in Defiance, where The Reaver was the only obtainable weapon, however, it's legacy would endure as the Sarafan Templar wielded similarly designed 'claymores' (perhaps implied to be longer and heavier than the long sword). The artifact Malek's Sword, depicted as wielded by the Sarafan Warrior Inquisitor Malek on a statue in theCloister in Defiance, also seemed to be based on the Sarafan Long Sword design.
