Traditionally, the artifacts known as Nemesis blades are identified either with their most famous victim (as in the case of Evissers bane) or with their most dramatic wielder, as is the case with The miserecorde of Angelette Baudin. It is assumed that all of the Nemesis blades contain within them, or bound up in their fabrication some type of angelic or demonic spiritual intelligence. How this is undertaken remains a mystery for the most part, as the 'Nemesis template' is still being researched and investigated by the Academy. What is known about these intelligences however is that they choose their wielders, and have intricate standards that are applied to any situation. The blades have been known to abandon their wielders if the act does not meet the geas of the being bound into the weapon. Often, the blade will, through a series of events that some academics suspect are manipulated by the intelligences themselves, come into the possession of a person in need of a blades' particular specialty.
