Corpse Hand (尸手, Shī shǒu) is the sacred weapon of the Ventrue Clan.
It is the left hand of Cain, the creator who gave birth to the first bloodline of Vampires. It has the ability to give the bearer a glimpse into the secrets of the world, including the past and the present. It was given to Ge Chen when he was assigned leadership of the Ventrue Clan. It granted the Ventrue clan much insight into the world, including the return of Xi Tai and the Mei Yue Yin.
Members clans of the Camarilla also acknowledge it as a sign of authority among the Clan Leaders.
When Ge Chen and his party are dealing with Zhui Yan, Corpse Hand was able to tell them about its curse and power, but could not unveil its origins. It seems the Hand has trouble disclosing some matters involving other Sacred Weapons such as Rotting Bracelet. This is the reason it could not find its origin, as it could not look into the Xue Yan disease.
The Hand is not always a useful tool, as it can rely information of mistrust and self-doubt to the user on themselves. This is the problem with the hand, as it reveals truths on the world, even if they are not welcomed truths, creating pain for the user who might not want to seek this information. In addition, the Spirit Ring can also tap into this weapons powers via the user holding onto it and this side of the Hand be activated and used against them.
The hand also talks to the user and can even questioning the reasons for the information being sought, displaying some sentience like Devil Doll. It can issue warnings about what the user is about to see if they are taking place in the present time.
As of the Forbidden Sphere event, it can now project a spirit into a location. The viewer remains helpless to events unfolding before them since the Hand only allow observation, not interaction and they cannot be seen by those present. However, if both viewer and those being spied upon are thinking of each other at the same time, it is possible for a message to be relayed between the Corpse Hand user and the person they are spying on. But this is the limits of the interaction.
- Corpse Hand's abiltiies to reveal secrets of the world is likely a nod to Caine from the original Vampire: the Masquerade. Vampire Sphere draws much inspiration from VtM. In VtM, Caine was shown the dark secrets by Lilith, these secrets are better known as the the Disciplines, the collective name for the Supernatural powers of Vampires.
