OriginEdit

Along with the Cauldron of Annwn, the Cauldron of Rebirth is considered by some to be the inspiration for Christianity's Holy Grail, although the Cauldron of Rebirth is Celtic in origin. The Cauldron of Rebirth is mentioned in the tale of The Mabinogion being able to give life back to dead warriors. They return in from the Otherworld (the Celtic version of the afterlife) unable to speak so that no one may know what it is like. According to the story, the Cauldron is destroyed in a fight while a hero attempts to collect it.

EffectsEdit

When poured into the mouth of a dead soldier and making them swallow (or if too decomposed, just far enough back), it reanimates the corpse, which will obey the user's wishes as long as they are fighting. Any attempt to have them do anything else will result in violent behavior on their part, after which there is no guarantee they'll listen to the person who reanimated them.

HistoryEdit

This artifact was discovered around 440 AD, when the Warehouse received reports from the Western Roman Empire that there was dead soldiers fighting against the Huns. Demanded by Attila to get to the bottom of this, two Regents headed out towards the area of Illyricum, where the incidents were being reported. There, they discovered a Roman general who was using the artifact to bring back his dead men, all of whom were under his command. However, when Agents attempted to neutralize the artifact, the general accidentally made the mistake of ordering the soldiers to apprehend the Regents, causing them to act out.

During the commotion, one of the soldiers knocked over a torch, igniting the house the general was using as a base of operations, while another hit the artifact with his sword, destroying it. The Regents attempted afterwards to find the missing pieces, but could not. The destruction of the Cauldron neutralized the effects, leaving the Hunnic Empire in command of the area temporarily until more living Roman forces arrived.
