Dhylec, is a 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 supernatural beings known as Darkstalkers.
Description[edit | edit source]
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. When electrocuted it is shown to have it's own skeleton.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Dhylec boosts the abilities and power of anyone wielding it. Coupled with Donovan's own power as a Darkstalker, Dhylec grants Donovan with abilities including but not limited to: conjuring elemental deities, phasing through targets, and defeated supernatural beings, overwhelming any regenerative 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. In the realm of Makai, the Sword's magic appears to be even more powerful, as it has the power to harm the nobles of the Makai kingdom, making this sword and effective weapon against supernatural threats.
