Sir Edward Grey possessed an athane which was part of his supernatural paraphernalia. When he was investigating a murder in Hallam. HIn his room at the Glass Eel Grey was attacked by three giant eels. Thinking that they were a form of demonic or spiritual entities, Grey brandish his athane and invoked a prayer to ward them off.
