The Psi-Scimitar is a quasi-sentient mystical artifact whose origins are linked to the otherworldly dimension known as Skartaris. At rest, it appears as nothing more than an ornate hilt with no blade, but with its power fully charged, it can produce a blade of flaming energy. Only those who have the blood of a warrior can activate and wield the Psi-Scimitar. In addition to increased stabbing and slashing damage, the Psi-Scimitar can also open up a dimensional gateway, teleporting its wielder to any destination they desire. Recently, it has been discovered that the Psi-Scimitar can also open up doorways to alternate dimensions. Years ago, the blade came into the possession of archaeologist Raza Kattuah. After Kattuah's family was wiped out by American bomber jets, the blood of the warrior stirred within him. He came into possession of the Psi-Scimitar and adopted the name of an ancient Persian hero - Rustam. As Rustam, Raza became the leader of a mercenary cell known as the Jihad and used the Psi-Scimitar to teleport the team from locale to another. Years passed, and Rustam found himself transported to the world of Skartaris. He engaged in a final battle with his mortal foe Rick Flag - a battle that cost Rustam his life. Flag took possession of the Psi-Scimitar and used it to teleport back to Earth. The Psi-Scimitar remains in his possession to this day.
