Soulrender is a scimitar which is one of the twin swords of the legendary Nord pirate captain Haknir Death-Brand. The sword can be found on the corpse of Haknir's ghost in Gyldenhul Barrow, after defeating him. It is identical to a normal scimitar, except that its base damage is two points higher. Its enchantment only triggers when dual-wielded with Bloodscythe, and will absorb 15 points of magicka with a chance to dispel the enemy's magical defenses. [verification needed — what is the chance?] It can dispel armor spells, invisibility, wards, cloak spells and healing spells. Soulrender can be tempered with an ebony ingot with the Daedric Smithing perk doubling its improvement.
- Another version of Soulrender (baseid xx037ff3) is wielded by the ghost of Haknir Death-Brand during the related quest. It is identical to the obtainable version, but is marked as unplayable.
- Soulrender cannot be placed on a weapon rack or weapon plaque. It can be placed on a weapon rack in your house, with the Hearthfire add-on. It may take a few tries, but it does work.
