It is sold to the merchant for 12,000₧ in the main game. In Separate Ways, Ada must use it to unlock the door in the room containing the cage trap by examining the chest Leon originally found it in and placing it in an indentation at the bottom of the chest.


In the maingame, it is a treasure item and is found in chest Chapter 3-3, during a fight with a Garrador.

In Separate Ways, it is a key item in Chapter 3. It is found in a chest in the same the locked room on the castle balcony.
