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 a powerful artifact of fate in her hands is something to be feared. It is possible that the Arkenpliers greatly increase the power of the magic the attuned user casts (i.e. [[Wanda]] being able to [[Decrypted|Decrypt]] [[Prince Ansom]] without him deteriorating, and while keeping all of his memories and abilities intact{{erf|1|144}}, or being able to [[Decrypted|Decrypt]] large armies with little effort{{erf|1|145}}).

The pliers allow the attuned Croakamancer to [[decrypt]] corpses as new units on her side.

It is also possible that the Arkenpliers are a Croakamancy-specific artifact, given Ansom's proficiency with the weapon against Uncroaked and Wanda's ability to decrypt.

It is unclear what other powers, if any, Wanda has gained from her attunement. Given that that Croakamancy is the aspect of [[Naughtymancy]] ruled by [[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]].

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 of.

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.

Plot

The Arkenpliers had been held by Jetstone for a long time before King Slately decided to allow Prince Ansom to use them in the Battle for Gobwin Knob. However, at that time, the Arkenpliers were not attuned to him.Erf-b1-p022Same-site.PNG One major reason why King Slately took the risk of giving them to Ansom was his hope that Ansom would become attuned to the pliers in the course of battle.

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

Speculation

Powers when Attuned

The pliers allow the attuned Croakamancer to decrypt corpses as new units on her side. Since the decrypted do not appear to degrade over time as a normal Uncroaked would, this allows her to create a nearly unstoppable army. Every time Wanda wins a battle, she decrypts the corpses of the enemy, giving her an even larger advantage in the next battle.

It is unclear what other powers, if any, Wanda has gained from her attunement. Given that that Croakamancy is the aspect of Naughtymancy ruled by 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 magic in disciplines outside of Croakamancy, so those spells might 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.
