The Dies Irae (Day of Wrath) is a masterforged Phrik Vibrorapier, belonging to Lorenzo Salvatori. Forged in the old republic, the blade has been wrought in a style distinctive of the Noua region of Telerath, and contains the artistic brilliance and metallurgical mastery so typical of the world. All in all, the blade is constructed of a Phrik and Titanium amalgamate, which imbues the blade with incredible strength, while at the same time a surprising lightness. The hilt of the blade has been forged in a swept-hilt basket style; essentially a cross-guard, over which a wire half basket has been inset. This guard is made out of old republic bronze, and is decorated highly with strapwork, detailed wire lacing, and iridescence. It should be noted that the guard itself is made out of this bronze, though not the cross-guard itself, allowing for blocks and parries of otherwise harmful blades by the wielder. The blade itself has been polished to a high sheen, almost appearing luminescent. Across its surface, detailed etchings and mouldings have been chiseled into its surface, depicting angels and cherubs, beautiful and serene in appearance. Despite the blades appearance though, it can indeed inflict severe damage on a target; inset deep within the hilt, and surrounded by a layer of inert power insulator, is a Ultrasonic vibration generator. Capable of vibrating the blade up to three thousand microvibrations a second, it enables the blade to cut through flesh, bone, armor, and even durasteel almost effortlessly. Truly, while a unique and simple weapon when compared to more flashy weapons such as a lightsaber, it is indeed still dangerous.
