The warrior Sunyartra was one of the legendary Knights of Cydonia. Many tales are told of his exploits with the Knights, but the most common portray him as a loyal defender of his fellow knights, often risking his life in their defense, and never ever leaving a fallen ally behind.
The Silver Scimitar is an intelligent item that carries on the legacy of Sunyartra and the Knights of Cydonia. It compels it’s weilder to protect his allies and never leave a fallen ally behind. It will often attempt to take over a wielder that has abandoned an ally or is not attempting to defend them if possible.
If the weilder swears an oath to the sword to carry on the legacy of the Knights of Cydonia, the sword gains the ability to fight to protect them when they attempt to rescue or defend their allies. The sword will animate and leap out of the wielder’s hand, fighting allies as though it were a dancing blade. It also grants the wielder a +4 dodge bonus to AC against attacks of opportunity, and will follow the wielder as they retreat from battle with a wounded ally, protecting their flanks as they retreat. If the weilder breaks thier oath, the sword vanishes from thier possession, and will never be found by them again.
