The Blade of Mercy gift can be found during the Act 3 main quest Best Served Cold, unlocking Fenris' quest. Choosing to keep the sword results in an unrestricted version, while giving it to Fenris results in this version.
Of course, the Tevinter Imperium did not become part of the Chantry until well after its formation centuries later, so the first of these blades was created in 2:2 Glory as a gift from Archon Therion to his general, Lord Galineus, for battles fought at the height of the Second Blight. Since then many archons gave similar gifts and it is seen as a badge of honor within the Imperium—though more than one of these blades have ended up on the black market, either stolen or sold by the recipients when their family fell on hard times.Ironically, one of the four swords found impaled in the body of assassinated Queen Madrigal of Antiva in 5:99 Exalted (thus inspiring the Age of Steel) was a Blade of Mercy. It was a great sacrilege to the Chantry.
—From Codex entry: Blade of Mercy
- This is the only version of the Blade of Mercy which uses the same model as is depicted during the quest when Fenris examines the blade. The Blade of Mercy (unrestricted) has a totally different model.
