Drizzt's Do'Urden Twinkle Scimitar
Share With Friends:
- This is the Twinkle Scimitar carried by Drizzt Do'Urden in the Forgotten Realms.
TWINKLE Twinkle is Icingdeath's companion scimitar, held in his left hand (and worn on his right hip). Drizzt received Twinkle from the mage Malchor Harpell when he was chasing Artemis Entreri after the assassin captured Regis in the novel Streams of Silver. Twinkle was first mentioned in the next novel, The Halfling's Gem. According to 2nd edition Dungeons & Dragons rules, it is a Defender +5 while, again in 3.0 edition it is a slightly tweaked +2 Defending scimitar. The Defending property has been revealed in between the lines; if read closely, every time Drizzt is in combat and there is a blow headed toward him, almost always Twinkle is there to block the blow. Forged by elves, Twinkle has a star-cut sapphire on its pommel, and the blade glows blue when danger is near.
Drizzt Do'Urden is a fictional character in the Dungeons & Dragons-based Forgotten Realms setting. As an anti-stereotype drow, Drizzt has forsaken both the evil ways of his people and their home (in the Underdark). Drizzt is one of the most well-known heroic characters of the Forgotten Realms.
Magical Items Drizzt's favorite weapon is the scimitar, and he carries two nicknamed Twinkle and Icingdeath. He also carries a magical figurine, which summons his black panther companion, Guenhwyvar. Drizzt wears a pair of "Bracers of the Blinding Strike," which increase the agility of the bearer, although he wears them on his ankles, as opposed to his wrists, claiming that footwork is just as important, if not more than, the speed of the strike. Besides, he knows that a blindingly fast strike is difficult to adjust if the enemy is able to anticipate and react to it. Drizzt's attire is generally a cloth tunic, leather pants, and soft boots. For many years, Drizzt wore an enchanted suit of mithril chainmail provided by Bruenor, but it was damaged recently, and now wears a spider silk shirt that can magically protect its wearer from all but the most lethal attacks. The adamantine in his shirt is special, as it does not turn to dust in sunlight, unlike most drow armor.
The weapons themselves may vary in the particulars of their designs, as only one (Tam's) has ever been described in detail, but all have a heron etched into the blade just above the crossguard. Some also have herons on the hilt. Tam's sword had forward-slanted quillons and a curved, single-edged blade narrowing to a point, and its hilt was long enough for two-handed use. This overall design is reminiscent of the Japanese katana.
Weapons Throughout the training sessions with his father, Zaknafein Do'Urden, and in Melee-Magthere, Drizzt favored the use of scimitars, but was also schooled to mastery in every weapon conceivable to the drow. This did not change after he went to the surface world. Drizzt is not above improvising in combat by making use of any weapons available to him, but most of the time he uses no weapon other than his two enchanted scimitars: Icingdeath and Twinkle.
