The scepter that Rhapthorne uses to control his many victims.
When the Seven Sages imprisoned Rhapthorne in the Goddess Statue in Neos, the scepter became his tool to use on the outside world. For many,many years, the scepter with the power of Rhapthorne was held in the Castle of Trodain, guarded at all times, and valued as it's most precious treasure.
But one day, a jester by the name of Dhoulmagus came to the castle. His deep desire to be the greatest magician of all time fueled his breaking in to get the legendary scepter. After doing so, he was overwhelmed by Rhapthornes power and made to do such dastardly things.
The scepter controled many people along it's journey. Each person controled had one thing on their minds, killed the heirs of the Seven Sages.
The first of which was Dhoulmagus who broke into Trodain Castle and cursed the kingdom into a perpetual entanglement in vines and turned King Trode into a troll and Princess Medea into a horse. He headed toward the town of Farebury. There, he killed Master Rylus and burned his house down to cover it up. He proceeded to the Tower of Alexandria and killed Alistair Albert, Jessica's brother. Following that was Maella Abbey where he killed Abbot Francisco. He crossed the ocean and went to Baccarat where he broke into the Golding Mansion and killed Golding himself.
Once Dhoulmagus was defeated by the party, Jessica picked up the staff and was taken over, but this took no effect until the next morning. She took off from Argonia to the northern checkpoint and headed through to Arcadia. She at first thought Diminoco to be the heir to the Sage, but it turned out to be David. Although she came close, she never actually killed him, but was defeated by the rest of the party.
After Jessica was Sir Leopold, Diminoco's beloved dog. He killed David, then flew off north to the Blizzard Peaks where he was targeting Marek, but discovered that it was Marek's mother, Marta, that was the heir and killed her. He then went off to the the Lord High Preist's Residence to attemt to kill the Lord High Preist himself, but was defeated bofore he could do so.
Finally, Marcello took the scepter and killed the Lord High Preist, making it look like he died from shock while also sending of his successor, High Preist Rolo, to Purgatory Island. Marcello was defeated at Neos and the scepter's hold over him was broken, but with the heirs of the Seven Sages killed and the Goddess Statue destroyed, Rhapthorne was free from his prison.
