Real name: “Sheeks.” Manufactured by the Architects to power weapons. Found in magical weapons and artifacts once created by the Hero, these glowing red gems resemble rubies. Once the Sheeks are destroyed, the weapons degenerate and cease to attack. If Sheeks are broken or removed from an artifact, they lose their illumination.
All weapons/artifacts discovered with Sheek ‘batteries’:
Fallax attack: Hand-held bombs with Sheeks in the center (emitted an increasingly loud buzzing noise before exploding)
Farmhouse attack: Great hammer, spear, sword and shield, and two daggers (each operated with one or more Sheeks, and attacked without a wielder)
Road battle: robot-like Golems with Sheeks in the center of their foreheads (bodies regenerated if Sheek was not destroyed)
