The Sword of Salvation along with its sister sword, Sword of Sin was used by the Order of Purity's Azraels since Geoffrey de Cantonna first donned the Suit of Sorrows after the Crusades. The Sword of Salvation, and the Suit of Sarrows were taken from the Order of Purity by Ra's al Ghul, a long time rival of the Sacred Order of St. Dumas. Ra's Daughter Talia used the Sword of Salvation against new Azrael, Michael Lane.
The Sword of Salvation, when used on a target, can conjure the truth of a matter in both the mind of the target and the wielder. Being stabbed by the sword stimulates a neurological reaction, where the victims are overwhelmed by the burden of their past tragedies and their minds start seeking redemption. Used in conjuction with the Sword of Sin, it can bring up both the sins & guilt and the reasons behind them in the mind of the target and the wielder. Like it's sister sword, it is capable of cleaving through a target while doing no damage and it is said that it cannot harm anyone who is pure of heart. Its blade is often surrounded in a smoke-like aura of cool blue energy.
Both the Sword of Salvation and the Sword of Sin appear to be animate, "speaking" to the bearer.
