The Hand of the Inheritor appears as a massive golden angel constantly surrounded by a halo of spinning blades. He is the current herald of the warrior-goddess Iomedae.
He refers to his halo of swords as an independent creature named “Brightsword” and can use it as a spiked shield or summon from it a longsword.
Before Eradan’s disappearance he was known as the Hand of Vengeance, a servant of the empyreal lord of chastity Ragathiel, but is now a valorous and civil servant of Iomedae, who he refers to as “the Just Queen of Heaven”.
