Dhylec is the sword wielded primarily by Donovan Baine. It is a very important weapon as a Dark Hunter, as it is the only weapon that can do significant harm to Darkstalkers.


Dhylec is a broadsword with a 'mouth' near the edge. It appears to have eyes, and is known to emit an aura all its own. It primarily levitates behind Donovan, with him sometimes holding the great sword with two hands; other times, he can spiritually command and dictate the trajectory of the great sword.


It is said that Dhylec was once used in Makai to slay higher demons. In the UDON comics, even Belial is aware of such a weapon. Later, it ended up in the human world, once held by Tibetan monks who guarded its power. A besieged Donovan musters control over the great blade, becoming the Dark Hunter he is widely known for.


Coupled with Donovan's own power as a Darkstalker, Dhylec heightens Donovan's own power, with abilities including but not limited to: conjuring elemenal deities, phasing through targets, and slaying mighty demonic beings, overwhelming any regeneratvie abilities they have. Dhylec is shown to have a mind of its own as well, following Donovan's command without fail, but complaining if it is planted on the ground for too long.
