Olwen's Helmet and Spear

Olwen’s Helmet and Spear

Olwen’s Helmet and Spear are legendary artifacts discussed in the “Myth of the Founding”, the story of the founding of the Curators of the Sands of Time. Like Nimue’s Hourglass, the helmet and spear are mentioned only in the Myth. In the Myth, Olwen takes it upon himself to guard Nimue—whom he loves—after she is commissioned to be the Oracle. To do this, he fashions a helmet and spear for himself, supposedly of great beauty, as he is a skilled metalworker. At the end of the Myth, Olwen turns his helmet and spear over and then vanishes into dust. Like the Hourglass, only a handful of scholars have ever taken the existence of Olwen’s Helmet and Spear seriously. Since Olwen (according to the Myth) crafted the armor and weapon himself—unlike the Hourglass, which Nimue received from a god—it is unclear as to whether or not it had magical properties, though his agelessness while he possessed them seems to indicate they did.
