A blade of Kyrathi design; such craftsmanship is thought ancient by the time nelrikind first colonised Elshanaes eastern lands. This particular one was discovered even centuries after that by archaeologists loyal to human courts, and came into the possession of House Yalimeres Prince Azul, til the sacking of his manse in Marlenkai. It is unknown if the blade was lost in the fires that decimated such a place to ash, but it certainly was a relic of the past that many would have sought to have in their private collections... seeing as it's age predates well before human or nelri arrival in the Middle Realms.
This was a quickie. Only took roughly three hours, but Im comfortable with how the design turned out. See, Ive got mind to draw a kyrathi character soon, but its more a matter of how than when
so I decided to draw something related to them for now.
