this article regards the Incantation used by Kain in Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, for other uses see Sanctuary (disambiguation)

"The Sanctuary spell enables me to travel to my crypt, where the soil of my grave provides me respite. I often resort to this when I am weak and need nourishment."
―Kain — Listen (file info)

Sanctuary was a spell acquired and used by Kain during the events of Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain. It was the first incantation Kain found after being resurrected as a Vampire and was located in his mausoleum. The spell enabled him to Teleport back to his grave from any place in Nosgoth. If Kain's health was very low, this spell would also partially refill his blood vial when used.

This spell usage becomes permanently unavailable since Kain's travel to the past after the Battle of the Last Stand.

Like many of Kain's Blood Omen spells, Sanctuary is not seen in further games.
