The Bagani Arrowhead Pendant is part of the Adlao Artifacts Jewelry Collection.
Inspired by the novel ADLAO: The Hidden Tribe, this pendant represents the Bagani's status and power. Considered to be the warrior class of the ancient clan, Baganis possess heightened physical abilities including superhuman senses, strength, agility, and reflexes. They also have accelerated regeneration and resistance to diseases, with some being able to transfigure their bodies. Baganis have high level of analytical intelligence which gives them advantages while in combat. The arrowhead is the Bagani's symbol due to their swiftness and lethal potential to anyone who threatens the Adlao tribe.
Yet, despite their incredible powers, the Adlao tribe suddenly vanished and the destiny of their descendants remains a mystery.
The pendant's design features the Adlao Baybayin, a modified form of the ancient Philippine script Baybayin. The Adlao tribe is intimately connected to the ancient script because Babayin tattoos appear and cover the skin of Adlaos whenever they use their powers as a physical manifestation of their power.
The Baybayin symbols incorporated with this pendant's design convey the message:
Nasa dugo mo ang lakas, tapang, at pag-asa (Filipino)
The strength, courage, and hope is in your blood (English)
