Squid's Grasp is an unique Weapon in Pillars of Eternity 2.


This unusual rapier was once the signature weapon of a widely-feared captain of the Príncipi known for pursuing his targets to the ends of the archipelago and for his ability to evade even the most determined pirate hunters of the Royal Deadfire Comapny. Azio Calmo was a man of cruel humor and dogged determination. The captain of the red-sailed sloop Cirono's Mercy, his own crew feared him as much as his foes, as Azio was as likely to inflict his sadistic punishments on underperforming underlings as the victims of his piracy. He survived four separate mutiny attempts, each time reversing the circumstances of an ambush and miraculously coming out on top. Legends spread of the wicked pirate captain with eyes in the back of his head, phenomenal reflexes, and a rapier the color of ink, made entirely of Ymyran steel.
