A spectacular, golden staff that is shaped somewhat like an Egyptian ankh, but has a skull in the center.
Kavonn was given this staff by his hat, in fact he pulled it out of his hat shortly after the hat "claimed" him. The staff is actually very powerfully magical and can do a number of things, but it has its limits. Kavonn cannot raise the dead for instance, and there are certain things he cannot do to himself with it also, beyond healing his own mortal wounds that is. It is not really made of solid gold, so it is a lot lighter than it looks, though it still has quite a bit of heft to it. Holding it, one might think it was made of wood instead.
