Galdan the Gold was one of the most successful Daerns of the Ibyth Empire. An incredibly powerful magic user, he used this staff to manipulate divine sparks without the risk of bonding with them. The staff was buried in his tomb, the unfinished Katol'íst temple.

The staff was recovered by Blackwell's crew in the fifth age just prior to the Katol'íst temple's destruction and was used by Marcelyina to safely store Bolg the Bloody's spark of terror until passing it to Halafas Raeranthur.
