[ Legacy of Kain: The Lost Worlds ]

The Ariel Reaver

article by Ben Lincoln

 

This deleted Reaver upgrade would have been obtained when Raziel consumed Ariel's soul in order to gain the power to kill Kain (see The Death of Ariel and The Final Battle with Kain), and like The Amplified Reaver would have permanently modified his weapon. It is depicted in the Chronoplast FMV of Ariel's death as a brilliant yellow blade with a white core. It does not appear to have a proper name, only a description of its nature. It is uncertain if it would have had any additional powers besides giving Raziel the ability to destroy Kain.

It is possible to enable the Ariel Reaver using cheat codes (see Codes (Multiplatform)) or The Debug Menu, although it is simply a prop made for the FMV and has no special powers.

The Spirit Reaver which Raziel obtains and the Soul Reaver which Kain receives near the end of Defiance are modified hybrids of the concepts for the Ariel Reaver and The Amplified Reaver. Defiance's Spirit Reaver should not be confused with the Spirit Reaver which was deleted from Soul Reaver (see The Elemental Reavers).
