One of the 27 True Runes!
A True Rune representing the "power of the night", this rune allows "creatures of the night," such as zombies, skeletons, and vampires to exist, as well as easily brings them back out of existence, when normal methods cannot. It was borne originally intertwined with the Sun Rune, which governed over light. The Sun Rune's great light annoyed the Night Rune, which severed the bond between the two runes. After initially becoming a sword, this rune's natures and whereabouts are shrouded in mystery. There are a few pockets of time in which it has appeared in important events in history. The original vampire, Sierra Mikain, is known to have had some sort of involvement with the rune, in another form. Zerase, bearer of the Star Rune (a derivative of the Night Rune whose exact nature is unknown), is very understandably familiar with the rune in its sword form. As the Zodiac Sword, it rested in the cave behind the Qlon Temple in Toran for a time, where it was found and wielded by the roaming mercenary Viktor, for use in fighting the vampire Neclord. The Night Rune defeated what was later found to be a clone of the vampire, but again was able to take part in a battle to destroy the vampire for good, in Tinto. After wandering with Viktor, the sword was passed onto Edge to aid in defeating another vampire, who has wielded the sword ever since.
