This artifact was wielded by Kalarel, scion of Orcus. Although Kalarel himself was consumed by some dark entity within the rift, his skull tipped magic rod remained. When Kevin, the priest of The Raven Queen first touched it, he was blinded and sent reeling to the floor. Maiya, on the other hand was able to pick it up without any deleterious effects, and is the rod’s current owner.
