Its existence was originally thought to be nothing more but a mere legend along with The Scientist and his laboratory. However, when Victoria and Balthier explain their plans to the captured Ruskin it is revealed that the weapon does exist and was merely hidden away to keep Claudia safe. When Claudia and Robin explore the Secondary Library and exit the secret passageway that leads to the rumored laboratory they come face to face with Shion holding the Death Scythe.
The bullets within the Death Scythe were created with Claudia's blood and are considered deadly poisonous to Black and Jet Roses. Victoria calls it a type of 'medicine' that paralyzes the body and surpesses the movements of the roses. It slowly dissolves flesh and bones, ultimately leaving nothing behind except the Seed of the Premier Rose.
