Stormbringer and Mournblade (Ravenbrand)
Stormbringer is a magic sword featured in a number of fantasy stories by the author Michael Moorcock. It is described as a huge, black sword covered with strange runes, created by the forces of Chaos with its own will. It is wielded by the doomed albino emperor Elric of Melniboné. Stormbringer has the ability to consume the souls of any living creature it wounds, even with a scratch. It also grants Elric strength and vitality, but at the cost of his guilt and self-loathing. Stormbringer often betrays Elric by killing his friends and lovers. It is one of two Black Swords in Elric's world, the other being Mournblade. Stormbringer is also a manifestation of the Black Sword, a cosmic archetype that can exist in any world of the Multiverse.
