My old friend together again. Now, my dark purpose will be fulfilled, and the last of the Romanovs will DIE!
~ Rasputin reuniting with his Reliquary.

Rasputin's Reliquary, also known as "The Reliquary", is an unholy, magical glass vial owned and wielded by the evil mystic Rasputin and it is featured in the 1997 animated Don Bluth film Anastasia.


The Reliquary is an 8-inch fancy, glass vial with a lid shaped like a human skull stabbed by a jeweled gold sword that hangs from a golden rope. It has a snake coiled around it.


Rasputin sold his soul in return for the power to destroy the Romanov family, then it turned into the form of the Reliquary. Rasputin tells Bartok his very existence depends on this talisman's safety. If it ever were destroyed, Rasputin would die.
