The Prismatic Core

The Prismatic Core was a powerful crystal that powered the Prismatic Weapon, created by the willing sacrifices of many priestesses of Meridia.[1] It was given to the forces of the Ayleid city-state of Delodiil during the early First Era, so that they could defeat their Molag Bal-worshipping enemy of Abagarlas and destroy the Mortuum Vivicus.[2] The destruction of Abagarlas was successful, but the weapon was ruined in the attempt. The crystal powering it was salvaged, although drained of its power, and five Ayleid heroes set out to the Dwemer ruin of Mzeneldt to hide the crystal so that the forces of Bal could not find it.[3] The priestess Valasha sacrificed herself to re-power the crystal, with the rest of the heroes giving their lives to safeguard.[1] It was later recovered by the Fighters Guild in 2E 582[4] and re-forged into the Prismatic Weapon by Merric at-Aswala, assisted by the Vestige.[5] The Prismatic Weapon was used by the guild's champions to destroy the Mortuum Vivicus once and for all.[6]
