I have the Glove, and with the glove comes the power!
―Gwendolyn Post[src]

The Glove of Myhnegon was a powerful and extremely dangerous magical artifact.

HistoryEdit

In 1999, the demon Lagos traveled to Sunnydale in search of the glove. A the same time, Gwendolyn Post arrived in the guise of Faith Lehane's new Watcher, so that Faith and Buffy Summers would prevent Lagos from obtaining the glove. It was found housed in the Von Hauptman family crypt in Restfield Cemetery. After Lagos' defeat, Post discovered that the Scooby Gang had gained possession of the glove and were about to destroy it with the Living Flame.

Since Post couldn't take on Angel — the current guardian of the Glove — on her own, she manipulated Faith into turning against the gang, allowing her to take the Glove while Faith and Buffy were fighting. Post then tried to kill the people present with the glove, only to be caught in a surge of lightning when Buffy used a shard of glass to cut off the arm wearing the glove.

After the glove was released from her arm, Post was incinerated by the lightning that she had just summoned, and the glove itself was subsequently destroyed.[1]

CharacteristicsEdit

The glove had the appearance of a combination of plate, chain mail, and leather. Small spikes along the plates covered the back of the hand and the forearm. Ringed around the opening, there were ten sharp hinged steel claws. Once the glove was equipped, these claws contracted, piercing through the skin and permanently latching the glove to its wearer. The glove would not release its hold until the individual died.

According to Gwendolyn Post, no record of the glove's full power existed. One of the glove's known abilities electrokinesis, funneling lightning into it and directing at a target. Each individual act (the pulling of lightning, as well as the ejecting of) required an individual command by the wearer, spoken in Gaelic. These commands included:

  • Tar chugam a chumhacht Myhnegon! (Come to me, power of Myhnegon!), to summon lightning.
  • Tar frim! (Come through me!), to shoot lightning.

Severing the glove arm from the wearer's body while they were channeling this power would cause the glove's user to be destroyed by the uncontrolled power of lightning. The glove could only be destroyed by performing a ritual to turn fire into Living Flame and then immolating the glove.[1]
