The mysterious Talisman is a metallic object with three strange symbols etched on its surface, and plays a key role in the 9 universe. It is created by the Scientist, it requires an owner and a combination to activate it but if inserted into a socket of a Machine, then the Machine can use the talisman on its own will to kill anyone without doing a combination. The only true owner of the Talisman known so far is 9, since the Talisman was meant to be a gift to him from the Scientist to preserve life and human culture.
2005 short film Edit
Before the film Edit
The Talisman was split into two: itself and the mirrored talisman, though when it was split was unclear. 5 possesses the mirrored one, which is almost flat and has a mirror on its short flat side that projects green light when danger comes. While the Cat Beast has the Talisman itself, which is half of a metallic sphere and has four slots.
Fiction role in the film Edit
2009 film Edit
"9" Scientist Facebook Edit
It's unknown when the Scientist created the Talisman but it was originally used to activate the B.R.A.I.N. in the past. The Scientist may have planned to use it to preserve human culture and life.
Fiction role in film Edit
In the past, the Scientist uses the Talisman to transfer parts of his soul into the stitchpunks. When he gave life to 9, he died but the Talisman, which was attached to the Transfer Module, manages to transfer the last soul fragment into 9.
More info TBA.
- A toy accurate version of the Talisman is seen with the 9 toy as an accessory. Clearly, it's almost copper-colored and the symbols etched on it is colored light green.
- How the Scientist made the Talisman is currently unknown.
- The Talisman's powers appeared to be not normal, thus probably advanced scientific. How it sucks souls is clearly not normal. 1 refers to it and everything else relating to it as "dark science," and some assume it to be alchemy.
