-**Longsword (and/or claymore):​** Straight, double-edged blade, long and heavy, two-handed grip. Wielders are talented overachievers.

 **Smallsword:​** Shorter and lighter version of a rapier. Wielders are attested to in historical records, but have not been seen in the modern era. They'​re said to be showy, unfit for the stresses of real combat, and the decline in heart-smallsword wielders is usually attributed to stricter training programs. **Smallsword:​** Shorter and lighter version of a rapier.

 Rowan’s heartsword is on record at the National Museum in their 16th-century collection, complete with a little biographical sketch. Thorn and Violet both have swords that only appear in [[http://​leifandthorn.com/​comic/​the-show-must-grow-on-act-i-5-44/​|ancient,​ faded, flaking records]], with no personal details that survived. Peach’s sword has been recorded twice: one from a few centuries ago, one much older. Birch and Juniper, nothing yet. Rowan’s heartsword is on record at the National Museum in their 16th-century collection, complete with a little biographical sketch.
