Hunter and the FoxIn darkest night she cries for her release.
She speaks her words and from shadows they steal.
Too late she rues her rash request for peace,
And in her fear she begs a dangerous deal
From one who watched her long through crystal eyes

Lightweight and flexible, but quite effective defense against blunt blows and – in a pinch – the slashing claws of the unholy spawn of the earth. All monster-hunters wore a similar variety in Val's experience. It would serve him well in these close quarters of the mirrored maze.
