Story: The Legacy of Kain has a very complicated story, the Soul Reaver is a powerful sword that sucks of the souls out of its victims. Once you get to the second game Soul Reaver (the game) the Mighty Kain has had the sword for a very long time but the Raziel comes along and breaks the item’s physical form and its spiritual form gets grafted onto his arm. Soul Reaver 2 expands upon the sword and we find out at long ago the Soul Reaver didn’t have this vampiric tendency and that through much time-travelling it is Raziel’s soul within the sword. It’s a very complicated story and that was only the summary of its part throughout six games, but needless to say the Soul Reaver in any of its forms is a crucial part to the story and generally the only weapon you’ll ever have.
Kain's Soul Reaver from the Legacy of Kain video game series. With the Soul Reaver by his side, Kain quests to find a cure for his vampire affliction and take bloody revenge on the assassins and corrupt sorcerers who have plagued him. Only with their deaths and by restoring Balance could Kain be released from his vampiric curse.
