The Listening Orb is a rune crystal that allows the user to communicate with animals and other creatures. These crystals were very rare and even Badeaux only had two in his possession. During the Dunan Unification War, they were used to communicate with and ask for the services of Abizboah, Feather, and Sigfried.
