In Irish mythology, Fragarach, known as 'The Answerer' or 'The Retaliator' was the sword of Manannan mac Lir (sea god) and Lugh Lamfada (high king). Manannan wielded it as his weapon, before passing it on to Lugh (his foster son). It was said to be a weapon that no armour could stop.
Forged by the gods, it was given to Cúchulainn by Lugh, and later to Conn of the Hundred Battles.
Fragarach in Castlevania Edit
Appearance in Dawn of Sorrow Edit
The Fragarach is similar to the sword Gram in Aria of Sorrow in that it is a legendary sword more powerfull than all historical swords, yet has no special abilities of its own and all swords stronger than it have some sort of special property. It can be created by fusing a Great Armor Soul with a Long Sword. This is the first fusion that must take place in order to create any of the more powerfull elemental swords, since the Long Sword can be easily dropped or purchased. The Fragarach is thus the greatest common ancestor to all of the special swords in the game which are the Hrunting (Poison), Mystletain (Holy), Joyeuse (Luck), Milican's Sword (Stone), Ice Brand (Ice), Laevatain (Fire), Burtgang (protection), Kaladbolg (Dark), and ultimately the Valmanway ("Wind"). Each of these swords thus requires a Great Armor soul. The Great Armor Soul is of moderate rarity and its ability (Summon Great Armor as a Familiar) does not level up, so each such soul after the first one encountered can be used as the basis for a new elemental sword (just buy a Long Sword if you don't already have one). This soul can also synth a Falchion into a Great Sword. It is not as crucial for the Great Sword evolutions though, since the Great Sword and Durandal can be found within the castle. The Great Armor is only found in the Dark Chapel. The Fragarach can synth with a Mollusca to create a poisonous Hrunting sword or it can synth with a Treant to form a Holy Mystletain sword. Both of these souls are only found in the Garden of Madness. Each of these swords evolve into a Joyeuse with a Killer Clown soul though, so deciding which one to create does not affect further evolution of the sword.
Appearance in Harmony of DespairEdit
The Fragarach is the most powerful sword that does not have a special ability. It is ranked just higher than the Gram sword in this game. For Alucard, this sword replaces and acts like the Luminus sword from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. For Soma, it behaves as it did in Dawn of Sorrow.
