Here's my second entry to the Mark's GC2 and a link to the story;
On the off chance you haven't read the story the basic premise is that the Sword and it's alleged power were a trick to hid the true weapon; a glove imbued with the power to manipulate the air. The Swords owner would always wear a beige glove with the initials RK embroidered on it at all time, but would never use it's power without holding a sword to hide it's true potential. This would enable the user to strike harder with a sword and more recently, grant the Lenfel navy mysterious and unrivaled speed. When the sword was stolen it seemed powerless in the hands of thieves and the thieves were quickly apprehended believing the sword had failed them for not being the true owner.
Here is part two showing Amaranthine testing out the glove's power on a small Lenfel vessel and tossing it into the rocky cliffs below him.
