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.

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.

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.
