Etymology[edit | edit source]

The weapon's name derives from Final Fantasy IV where Kain wielded a spear. His name derives from a Biblical story. Cain was the brother of Abel in the Tanakh/Old Testament book of Genesis. Cain became the first murderer by killing his brother out of jealousy stemming from God choosing Abel's gift over that of Cain.
