The ChaliceEdit

Main article: Builder's Chalice

The most sacred object stored within the cathedral is the Builder's Chalice "relic", actually an ancient artifact created by the Ancient Keepers. It is only brought into the service hall for special events and ceremonies. Otherwise kept in a caged cell within the factory high above reach, only accessible using the sophisticated machinery that protects it.
