It’s a rare person to face who they truly are and not run from it—not be broken by it. That’s what the Ouroboros shows all who look into it: who they are, every despicable and unholy inch. Some gaze upon it and don’t even realize that the horror they’re seeing is them—even as the terror of it drives them mad. Some swagger in and are shattered by the small, sorry creature they find instead. But you … Yes, rare indeed. I could risk leaving here for nothing less.

–- The Bone Carver, about the Ouroboros

The Mirror of Ouroboros is a powerful artifact that shows the looker who or what they truly are.


The Ouroboros is a massive, round disc a little taller than Feyre encased in bronze. The metal frame around it is fashioned after a serpent devouring its own tail.[1]


  • The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail.[2]
