Soulmend is an intelligent +2 transformative kukri that can cast a limited soul transfer once per day. This spell functions like soul transfer, except it only works on transferring evil-aligned bodiless souls or evil creatures whose substance is a physical incarnation of a soul into Soulmend itself. For every evil soul absorbed this way, Souldmend gains 1 soul point. Soul points can be spent in the following ways:
2 soul points—cure light wounds
4 soul points—cure moderate wounds
6 soul points—cure serious wounds
8 soul points—cure critical wounds
10 soul points—breath of life
12 soul points—heal
14 soul points—regenerate
16 soul points—mass cure critical wounds
18 soul points—mass heal
Obedience: Perform an anonymous act of charity without speaking to or gazing upon whoever will benefit from your act. If you accidentally see or speak to the person you help, spend an hour blindfolded and praying in silence, then tithe to a temple of Desna. Gain a +4 sacred bonus on saving throws against gaze and sonic attacks.
Level 12: Nullity (Sp) – Silence 3/day and deeper darkness 1/day.
Level 16: Silent Darkness (Sp) – You can cast quickened blindness/deafness once per day, and only a break enchantment, limited wish, miracle, or wish spell can restore the subject’s sight or hearing.
Level 20: Avatar of Shadows (Su) – Your form grows shadowed and indistinct. You gain a +6 sacred bonus on Stealth checks. In any condition of illumination other than full daylight, physical attacks against you have a 20% miss chance. If an attacker can see ethereal or invisible creatures, the miss chance is negated. At will, you can manifest a pair of shadowy butterfly wings that allow you to fly with a speed of 60 feet (normal maneuverability). If you already have wings, they become ethereally enhanced, granting you an extra +30 ft. divine bonus to your fly speed and increasing your maneuverability by one step.

Originally forged by Staunton Vhane with the aid of several Templars of the Ivory Labyrinth, this intelligent +2 transformative weapon was once infused with a babau’s sentience and eagerness for murder.
Soulshear was capable of hiding its evil nature with misdirection, it could occasionally summon a babau demon to clandestinely carry out its will. These summonings often result in unexplained murders, or even the death of Soulshear’s owner so the weapon could pass to further victims or be returned to the devoted cultists of Baphomet.
After much work and preparation, Soulshear was reforged and redeemed by Adlo of the Shadow into a new weapon, Soulmend. Purging the weapon of the tainted babau spirit within and infusing it with the residual spirit of one of Desna’s most cherished heralds, the Black Butterfly. This beautiful, ethereal voice echoes to Adlo the sheer beauty and sanctity of darkness, especially the darkness between the stars laid out by Desna long ago. Now in the hands of a worthy believer of Lady Luck, the Black Butterfly guides Adlo in his mission to protect all of creation against the ravenous nature of the demonic horde.
