During one of her frequent sojourns into the realm of shadows, Cendra -- a shadowdancer who could slip in and out of the shadows even during the brightest of days -- became ensnared on the webs of a wraith spider. Lucky for her, if being captured in the first place could be considered lucky, she found this shortsword stuck beside her. With a dexterous tug she pulled the blade free and punctured the wraith spider's belly with it. She used the keen blade to shave herself free of the webs. She and the blade were lost when she joined an expedition into the Underdark.
