The Torchbearer’s Shield was crafted by Fleur d’Cannith, an artificer of great repute, and a personal friend of Bishop Patoria of the Silver Flame. Upon the bishop’s request, Fleur crafted a shield for Fane of Aruldusk that would “provide a guiding light in a land of darkness”. The shield was given to the torchbearers as both a symbol of hope and a reminder of their duty. Blessed with the name Torchbearer, the silver plated shield is adorned with the insignia of a simple wooden torch alit with silver flame set upon a black background.
