Pez and Danny are called to the scene of a homicide in the dock district – a security guard was impaled through the chest with some sort of bladed instrument, but not a very sharp one. Pez questions Kenneth Irons, but their brief meeting ends in his barely-veiled threat, and shortly afterward, she’s on the case of two more grisly murders – both committed with the same weapon as the dock guard. Even more amazingly, analysis of the bodies reveals that the weapon may date back to the time of Christ. Pez and Danny visit Irons’ home, where she discovers a business card for an online relic search service. She visits that site’s home base and finds a potential ally in a young internet entrepreneur, Gabriel Bowman, who was unable to find something for Irons: a spear that may have been used to inflict Christ’s mortal wound on the cross. That spear, like the Witchblade, can be wielded only by those destined to carry it – and it contains the masculine equivalent of the immense power of the Witchblade, which can only be worn by a woman. Iron intends to use the Spear of Destiny to kill Pez, and in the inevitable confrontation, one of them will end up dead.
