The Claw of the Khan-Ur is an ancient charr artifact that is highly valued among the High Legions, originally the weapon of the first Khan-Ur. It is a symbol of charr unity, signifying the last time when the charr were fully united.[1] It is an ungue, a four-bladed weapon with a central grip, having two blades above and two blades below the handle. The Claw's handle is made out of gold, with four gems set at the base of each handle; red, black, gray, and gold, for each of the children of the first Khan-Ur who founded the High Legions.[2] It also contains a part of the original Khan-Ur.[3]

In 1090 AE, it was wielded by the Flame Legion Imperator who laid siege to Ascalon City with the hopes that ending humanity in Ascalon would give him claim to become the new Khan-Ur. However, King Adelbern unleashed the Foefire and wiped out the assault along with his own soldiers and citizens. Adelbern, now a ghost, took the Claw of the Khan-Ur and locked it away within a vault below the Foefire's Heart.

In 1324 AE, Queen Jennah commissioned the Vigil to retrieve the Claw of the Khan-Ur in order to promote peace talks between humans and charr. The Vigil in turn hired Dougal Keane, the sole person to escape the city alive prior to then, to lead the expedition into the city to retrieve the Claw. After being retrieved, the Claw was given to Imperator Smodur the Unflinching of the Iron Legion as human part of a peace treaty. It now sits on the main table in The War Council.

Due to the Claw of the Khan-Ur having been lost for hundreds of years, it is now unknown to the populace whether the Claw holds magical power, or if it is merely a symbolic weapon that gained legends or was even imbued with magic over time.[3]

    "More importantly," said Almorra, "the Khan-Ur was, in ancient times, the ruler of all the charr legions. Iron, Ash, Blood, and Flame. The Claw was a symbol of unity among the charr, the last time the legions were fully united. It was lost in Ascalon City."
  2. ^ Chapter 26, page 357, Ghosts of Ascalon by Matt Forbeck and Jeff Grubb:
    Two blades pointing forward, two pointed back, a handgrip in the middle. An ungue. It was set with four gems—red, black, gray, and golden—for the four children of the imperator,[sic] and the four founders of the modern legions.
