The Sun Disk was a two-handed puzzle object obtained and used by Raziel in the Dark Forge in Soul Reaver 2.


The Sun Disk was an item that was crucial to solving the puzzle of the Dark Forge and imbuing the Wraith Blade with elemental Darkness in Soul Reaver 2.[Soul Reaver 2]

Raziel first encountered the Sun Disk when he was able to enter a two-tiered chamber at back of the Dark forge and saw the glowing Sun Disk in a holder on the upper level. Making his way through an upper entrance to the nearby main activation chamber, Raziel found an empty holder for the Sun Disk and was able to make his way through some of the other chambers of the forge. Solving the puzzle of the 'eclipse room', Raziel was able make his way to the upper level of the two-tiered room and recover the Sun Disk.[Soul Reaver 2][Soul Reaver 2/3][Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)]


The Sun Disk was a circular golden disk artifact with a basic sun motif marked on the face of the disk. Once gained the Sun Disk 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]

Returning to the main chamber of the forge, the main doors opened with the presence of the Sun Disk and Raziel was able to place the disk in the holder at the back of the room. Continuing through the forge and solving the puzzle of the Sundial and Reflector room, Raziel was able to position an identical disk to bounce natural light around the forge and down onto the Sun Disk in the main activation chamber, with the resulting 'eclipse' effect on the forge crystal causing the forge to be activated and the Reaver to be imbued with elemental Darkness, gifting Raziel with the Dark Reaver.[Soul Reaver 2][Soul Reaver 2/3][Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)]
