Two of the Patternblades, Greyswandir and Werewindle, were stolen by Annadil to open the Gate of Revolution beneath the Air Pattern of Tir'Na-Nog on the Second Day of Darkness. After the Gate was closed, the two Patternblades vanished before they could be reclaimed.
At the time of Unicorn No Seishi, the deposition of the Patternblades are as follows:
- Greyswandir, Sword of Water, the Night Blade, previously owned by Derith?, long lost in Shadow. It was recently taken from its previous holder, the shadow warlord Bronwyn, by Lucien and his ladies.
- Micklefang, Sword of Metal, aka "Justice" or the Dawn Blade, retrieved by Shaft, momentarily owned by Jacqui before being claimed by Lord Alars of Chaos. Justice is now back in Jacqueline's hands, after Moriya traded Withywindle to House Alars for it, and returned it to Jacqueline. It has most often been wielded by Moonshade or Jacqueline in combat.
- Werewindle, Sword of Fire, the Day Blade, previously owned by Drake, now recovered and back in Drake's hands.
- Merehallow, Sword of Air, the Sun At Noon, awaiting the 'Ever-Burning Brand' (either Morgan or Kanna could have qualified at one point). It was recovered (stolen) by Morgan, and then lost to House Alars after Morgan and Lord Alars fought. It was stolen by the Serpent's Horn on the raid on House Alars during the Withywindle / Justice exchange, and weilded with lethal efficency by Kenshin for a time. In the assault on Daffyl's shadow, it was finally recovered, and Kanna successfully delivered it to Juri, who will hopefully kill Hel extremely, extremely dead with it.
- Withywindle, Sword of Wood, the Evening Blade, formerly buried on Endor as the keystone of a trap to imprison the soul-stealing undead monster that Ivan the Terrible, Ksinge of Muscovy became. Moriya retrieved the blade and destroyed Ivan, with the help of Motoko and others. It has since been traded to House Alars in order to regain Justice.
Rumors of other Patternblades exist, aligning with the known Patterns, but their whereabouts are unknown:
- The Primal Patternblade. Don't even try finding it. Presumably the Primal Pattern Knight holds it, if he / she / it exists.
