July 4th, 1864: Vicksburg, MississippiEdit

Wielded by Union Soldier of Indiana's 26th End Infantry, McComb was present at the capture of Vicksburg and his infantry sword absorbed the adrenaline rush of that he felt as he aided his fellow soldiers in the seige.  McComb survived the battle and lived out the rest of his life, raising a large family.

2011: Vicksburg National Military ParkEdit

An unnamed agent collected the sword after a cuartor had a heavy adrenaline rush while cleaning the sword.

Today: WarehouseEdit

Until the H.A.R.P. Consultant Tyler Lepido found it while doing inventory on the Armerie Sector, it was known as 'Infantry Sword from the Siege of Vicksburg'.  When he laid eyes on it, Tyler's origin identifcation ability kicked in and was stunned to find out that the sword belonged to his Great-Great-Great-Great-Grandfather, William Newton McComb.  Getting permission from Leena, he was allowed to keep the sword as a family possession.  As Tyler learned more about the downsides of the sword...he also began to piece together the downsides his own family had brought upon the blade as well, namely the chance of the sword causing incest.

  • The artifact is based on true facts, Affectos's Great-Great-Great-Great-Grandfather was William Newton McComb, and there is a theory in his family that his Great-Grandma was born through incest.
    • Tyler/Affectos is okay with the chance of incest in his bloodline though, he feels it gives his heritage a bit more intersting of a past.
