After a last-ditch effort by Vahen and Lancelot to rescue Kane from the shadow within him, Lancelot cleanses a fully mutated Kane. It works, in returning Kane to his previous state of mind, but his body is still twisted. Traces of the shadow still remain in his body and the constant struggle to retain his sanity takes a toll on Kane's body.
Kane's right arm is completely tainted in shadow and his left arm is puny and weak. Kane can only rely on his right arm in battle now, making him weary of combat.
