The magebinders are a set of silver manacles and an accompanying key. Similar to the silver cuffs Han wore for the most part of his life, the magebinders are old, clan-made magical cuffs that were used in the mage wars to control mage prisoners. The cuffs work by allowing the key holder to inflict excruciating pain on the mage with the binders, and the mage is conditioned to obey with the passage of time. Cedric Fossnaught used to own two pairs, but surrendered them at the orders of Gerard Montaigne. It is not known what happened to them after Han and Dancer escaped from the prison.
