Justicar, also referred to as Justiciar,[3] was the powerful longsword wielded by the god of justice, Tyr.[2] It was gifted to him either by Ao or Tyr's predecessor. Mystra aided in its creation.[1]


After Tyr's death, which occurred while fighting off a demonic invasion of Celestia during the Era of Upheaval, the sword was stuck in a white stone in the hearth of Martyrdom, Ilmater's Dominion in Celestia.[4]


Justicar has appeared as both a +3 sword of sharpness that could detect lies, alignment and see invisibility,[1] as well as a +5 vorpal longsword.[2]
