Wicked Beast is a pike in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Description[]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

Aedhor Maydr, a Dyrwoodan thayn, was fond of his pack of hounds. His favorite was Wicked Beast, a most ill-tempered and half-blind mongrel. She would snap at everone, including her master, and her will could not be bent like the other dogs. Wicked Beast would bite any creature in her vicinity. Such was her belligerence that Aedhor took to wearing a thick glove to pet the hound.

Even as the hound aged her temper never waned, though her health diminished. Near the end she lacked the strength to do more than muster a pitiful snarl. Aedhor knew her days were numbered. He tasked an animancer to transfer the dog's soul into an ashwood pike to preserve her bestial, untamed essence.

Much of Wicked Beast's soul was lost to the process, though the weapon holds her essential nature. It is a temperamental item, likely to strike at its wielder as their enemies. Its power and aggression, however, are undeniable.
