Vermilion the Red Sword of War was the blade wielded by the First Horsemen War.[1]

History

During the attack of the First Horsemen of Apocalypse on the Starlight Citadel, Saturnyne intervened and set a contest where the forces of Krakoa and Arakko would each have ten swordbearers fighting in Otherworld.[1] War armed with her Red Sword Vermilion was one of the Arakkii chosen as one of the Swordbearers of Arakko.[1][2]

Attributes

  • Flammability: Vermilion is able to ignite in flames without being damaged or consumed by fire. When used by War, the sword also appears to be able to direct and produce flames.[1][2]

Trivia

  • The word vermilion usually refers to a vibrant red or scarlet pigment. Originally, vermilion pigments were derived from the powdered mineral cinnabar (mercury sulfide).
