The Time Reaver enhancement was an augmentation for The Reaver used by Kain in Legacy of Kain: Defiance. Presumably of Ancient Vampire origin, Kain gained the enhancement after he acquired the Time fragment of the Balance Emblem.
The Time Reaver enhancement was the fifth and final Reaver enhancement gained by Kain in Defiance. Kain found the enhancement in Chapter 9 when exploring the Vampire Citadel, he found his way to the Light Forgeand discovered the Time Fragment of the Balance Emblem upgrading its power. With the Balance Emblem complete Kain was able to enter the inner sanctum of the Vampire Citadel.[DEF][DEF-C9].
The Time enhancement made the Reaver to glow with blue energies. In combat its charged attacks slowed struck enemy movements while its Reaver Spell gave Kain the ability to slow time for a short period.[DEF]
- The Time Reaver enhancement is titled simply as "Time" in the inventory and the Prima Guide[DEF], but is also known as the "Time Reaver".
- The Time enhancement is also associated with Time and the Pillar of Time and it is named the "Time Pillar" in the Debug Menu. Strangely it is referred to as "reaver_god" in game files[DEF].
- The Reaver Spell attack of the Time Reaver is similar, if not identical to the 'Slow Time ' incantation from Blood Omen[BO1] and is also directly called "Slow Time" in the Prima Guide
- The Time Fragment has presumably resided in the Vampire Citadel since ancient times, however like the other Balance Emblem fragments, it is possible that Moebius had a hand in its placement.
