The Fire Reaver was a temporary elemental enhancement for the Wraith Blade. Of unclear origin, it was wielded by Raziel in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver.


The Fire Reaver was a temporary and entirely optional Wraith Blade enhancement seen in Soul Reaver. It could be discovered by Raziel in the Fire Forge nearby the Rahabim Pupating grounds beneath the Drowned Abbey. Once baptized in the flames of the forge, the Wraith Blade was imbued with elemental Fire, creating the Fire Reaver.[SR1][1][2][3]

The Fire Reaver enhancement itself manifested as an orange colored wraith blade. It was more powerful than the ordinary Material Wraith Blade, with the Fire Reaver able to stun enemies with a single strike and burning them to death with its finishing moves. The Reaver bolts of the Fire Reaver were also likely to cause enemies to ignite and burn to death within a couple of shots. The upgrade was only temporary and would be lost upon entering the Spectral Realm or Bodies of Water, or by being damaged by enemies, however it could be re-imbued again at any time by passing it through fire sources (typically bonfires) in the Material Realm[SR1][1][2][3].

The Fire Reaver did not carry over to Soul Reaver 2, where a similar Fire Reaver enhancement was the last gained of the wraith blade enhancements of that game[SR2]. A more permanent Fire Reaver enhancement would be featured in Legacy of Kain: Defiance[DEF].
