The Reflectors, also known as the Reflector Shields, were a pair of identical puzzle objects obtained and used by Raziel in the Light Forge in Soul Reaver 2.


The Reflectors were a pair of items that were crucial to solving the puzzle of the Light Forge and imbuing the Wraith Blade with elemental Light in Soul Reaver 2.[Soul Reaver 2]

Raziel first encountered a Reflector in a side chamber of the Light Forge, shortly after passing the Light Forge key. Assailed by a shield-bearing Greater thrall and several Swordsmen thralls, Raziel was able to defeat the Thralls and recover the Reflector shield from the Greater Thrall.[Soul Reaver 2][Soul Reaver 2/4][Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)]

The Reflector was a circular golden disk artifact with a Light symbol marked on the face of the disk. Once gained the Reflector significantly limited Raziel's abilities - preventing him from Climbing, Gliding, entering Combat, manipulating objects or Devouring Souls. If placed on the ground, the key would quickly return to its point of origin.[Soul Reaver 2][Soul Reaver 2 manual]

Placing the Reflector in an empty holder in the 'large pillar room' of the forge Raziel was able to use the shield to reflect sunlight onto a light-activated door and open his way further through the forge. A second Reflector shield (once again held by a Greater thrall and gained by defeating it) would be encountered later in the same forge, with this also placed nearby to open light-activated doors and enable Raziel to pass through the forge unimpeded, so he could gain access to the Light Forge key.[Soul Reaver 2][Soul Reaver 2/4][Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)]
