The sword Caliburn is one of the eight talismans of Sir Cabirus, representing the virtue of Justice. It appears in Ultima Underworld.

Description[edit]

Molded after a sword from Earth, this sword is said to cleave Truth from Falsehood. It is said that the sword can't be broken in combat. It is a strong symbol of virtue.

Caliburn was broken in two, probably by the wizard Tyball. The blade was hidden in a secret room on the third level, while the hilt was placed in the tomb of Sir Cabirus on the fifth level. The Avatar found them there and used the services of Shak the blacksmith to forge them back together. It was cast into the lava of the Great Stygian Abyss in the chamber of virtue later, to banish the Slasher of Veils.

Lore[edit]

Reportedly molded after a legendary sword from the world of the Avatar, this weapon is said to cleave truth from falsehood.

Trivia[edit]
