The rare and coveted Rat of Glory! Fabricated from an L.B. master-thief, wick'd with puzzle-damask, tinted with the inks of the undernight. The Scuttering Company has been known to place its cunningest agents into a death-like sleep and disguise them as Rats of Glory, to smuggle them into candle-collections. This item may come awake at any time, in which case any candles or Luminosity items you possess are at risk. You may eliminate this risk by ridding yourself of it.
