The Triumph Casque of Sorrows was a weapon of legendary destructive potential. It was used by the Fomorians during the War of Trees. It was wielded by the Red King, until he was betrayed by the Lords of the Mound, ancient cousins of the Trolls, who were extinguished for their betrayal.
Even unopened, the Casque possessed enormous power, raining fire and poison down on those who would oppose its bearer. It is said that there are no defenses against the Casque once it is opened.
The fragments of the Key to the Casque lie in the Far Dreaming, in the territory of the Red Court. The Red King, baleful over his defeat in the war, broke the key into nine pieces and scattered them in the camps of his enemies. Soon, strife erupted among the Kithain and Chimera alike, resulting in a constant battle that still rages on.
