Tears of Two Races
|Tears of Two Races|
|A crystalline tear from Tyros the Deathbringer|
Description[edit | edit source]
|“||Tears rolled from the sightless eyes, and Conan's gaze strayed to the limbs stretched on the marble couch. And he knew the monster would not rise to attack him. He knew the marks of the rack, and the searing brand of the flame, and tough-souled as he was, he stood aghast at the ruined deformities which his reason told him had once been limbs as comely as his own. And suddenly all fear and repulsion went from him to be replaced by a great pity.||„|
|~ The Tower of the Elephant|
This single tear, shed by Tyros the Deathbringer, is an object of immense power. Tyros, was the half-blood child of the Priestking and an unknown human slave. Whether his birth was natural or aided by sorcery, is not known, but it is known that Tyros had children of his own with his wife, Telith.
Tyros was raised a gladiator, fighting in the arena for the benefit of the Giant-kings, but when war broke out with the Lemurians, he became a leader in their armies. Through great feats of strength and will, he won the outpost of Xullan from the Lemurian army. Just south of there, he met Telith, a daughter of Lemuria, and everything changed...
This is one of the artefacts required to create the keystone that can be used to remove the slave bracelet.
