Ankh, Anubis' Breath of Life | STAR D
The ankh is a prevalent hieroglyphic depicted in many forms. It is the symbol of life. It is typically a symbol held in each of the hands of an Egyptian with their arms crossed over their chest. In some of these specific circumstances, the appearance of this symbol was displayed to represent eternal life while on a general basis it represents the concept of life. The concept of life pertains to all living things and needs to be seen in complete context to be aware of what it means. It could be the sign of birth, living and or even dying. It could pertain to the after life. You don't quite know for certain unless you know the origin of the Ankh in question.
The rarest Ankh is the Breath of Life, which essentially means lengthy life enveloped in prosperity. It is a luxurious life stolen or given by another as tribute to bestow a lengthy and wealthy life. The catch, however, is neither of these things can be granted this way by life that is stolen. It will allow one to live longer but it will not allow one to live in luxury. They often become cursed. The Breath of Life works very specifically and life stolen is worth a lot less than life given, which is likely why this particular symbol has only been used in this context only once before.
That is why this item is so extraordinary. This item is the vessel of the actual Breath of Life. However, a human life was not given to create it. This piece was created when Anubis became the God of Death. When a being dies and becomes ascended into a God, their soul becomes a mere emulation of what it once was. It becomes altered and, in most ways, more valuable. This is why Gods are typically worshiped and considered so sacred - it's because they really are - but very seldom is a God's human soul preserved.
That is what makes this item so powerful. It is influenced with the human soul of Anubis. Upon wearing this item, you will find that you are linked to him. You will gain sway over all that he does. You will be able to access the afterlife and all of the entities within it. You can communicate with them. This includes Anubis himself. As you are in possession of his human soul as well, he will answer to you and guide you as he will believe you to be a part of him.
Above all, you will gain his physical durability over time. Time will not physically affect you. You will age but you will not wither physically. You will gain wealth with no end.
As it holds the soul of a God, the power remains indestructible and everlasting. Even if the vessel is broken, the soul can be shifted into another, which is what has happened multiple times with this item. This piece does, however, contain fragments of the original empowered item, which were melted down and mixed with the new material in order to seal the soul securely inside.
This piece is sterling silver with a dragon's breath stone.
