Proposed Canon

One of the Arkentools. It is currently attuned to Wanda Firebaugh of the Gobwin Knob Side.

Attunement to the Arkenpliers is governed by the Fate axis of magicErf-b1-p022Same-site.PNG, which Croakamancy (Wanda's specialty) is a part.

While unattuned and owned by Prince Ansom, the Arkenpliers were a powerful weapon, capable of instantly destroying most Uncroaked units on contact, as well as being able to hurt other Units.Erf-b1-p022Same-site.PNGErf-b1-p071Same-site.PNGErf-b1-p118Same-site.PNG

The associated "special" Unit of the [{Arkenpliers]], while attuned to Wanda, are the decrypted, an advanced form of uncroaked. See the Decrypted page for more details on these Units.

The Arkenpliers belonged to Prince Ansom of Jetstone until his defeat at the Battle for Gobwin Knob, but they were never attuned to him.Erf-b1-p022Same-site.PNG After Ansom's deathErf-b1-p131Same-site.PNG, the Arkenpliers were briefly recovered by Scarlet of the Royal Crown CoalitionErf-b1-p132Same-site.PNG, only to be lost once again when the uncroaked volcano wiped out all Royal Crown Coalition forces inside Gobwin Knob.

She used them to decrypt Prince Ansom and much of the RCC forces destroyed in the explosion.

Speculation

Powers when Attuned

Just what enormities can be expected of Wanda attuned to the Arkenpliers are unclear, but given her vocation for Croakamancy, and given that that school is the aspect of Naughtymancy ruled by the aspect of Fate, it would seem that it is a powerful artifact of fate in her hands and the pair are something to be feared, even by Stanley the Tool. Wanda is capable of Fate disciplines outside of Croakamancy, which may also be enhanced by the Arkenpliers.

Real World References

It was pointed out that a company named Zhejiang Wanda Tools Co. Ltd specializes in making pliers.
