OriginEdit

Beatrice is commonly known throughout Dante Alighieri's life as his true love, even after her death he made her memory live on in his poems. When she died in 1290, he was devastated, afterwards he placed a shroud over her body and mourned for her.

EffectsEdit

This shroud was imbued with the power to bring the lightness into the dark, making the surrounding area so bright that it could be seen from space, as Beatrice was the guiding light in his poem Paradiso. It only activates when someone is holding the shroud and saying the phrase "Behold Thy Heart" and only deactivates when uttered the phrase by another person "I Am Thy Lord".
