OriginEdit

Guru Gobind Singh was the 10th Sikh Guru, along with a spiritual master, warrior, poet and philosopher. When his father, Guru Tegh Bahadur, was beheaded for refusing to convert to Islam, Guru Gobind Singh was coronated as the leader of the Sikhs at age nine, becoming the last of the living Sikh Gurus. Among his notable contributions to Sikhism include founding the Sikh warrior community called Khalsa and introducing the Five Ks, the five articles of faith that Khalsa Sikhs wear at all times.

The kirpan is a knife or dagger carried by practicing Sikhs, to be used only for self-defense and the protection of others. It is meant to symbolize a Sikh’s mandatory duty to assist anybody in need, as it is not allowable for faithful Sikh to ignore crimes and suffering, even if it places one in danger.

EffectsEdit

Will expertly attack any perpetrator when in proximity to crime or injustice, regardless of having a handler or not. If the instigator is not present, the blade will attach to the nearest person and imbue them with the unshakeable desire to help.
