Overview[edit | edit source]
Though the Holy Grail is depicted as a legendary treasure in Arthurian legend, none of this is mentioned in the Serious Sam series. Its only known purpose is for activating (or powering up) the Sirian backup spaceship in the Church of Sacred Blood. The Arc-Al-Magi, a clan of wizards, were tasked with protecting the Holy Grail from anyone who wanted to steal it. They made a book called the Book of Wisdom, which would show the reader where to find it.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
The Holy Grail is Sam's main objective in The Second Encounter. Having crashed his ship into the Andes mountains after something collides with it, NETRICSA tells him that the Sirians hid a second backup spaceship incase something happened to the SSS Centerprice. The Sirians placed Time-Locks in different time periods with several human civilizations so that someone can get to the time period that the Holy Grail is in.
Originally, the Grail was kept inside an ice castle located near the Arc-Al-Magi's hideout. However, Mental found out about the Grail and its importance to Sam's mission, so he wiped out the wizards and stole the Grail from the ice castle. Sam soon found out that Mental had placed it within The Grand Cathedral and had Mordekai the Summoner guard it. However, as Mental and his forces were not within God's mercy, they were disqualified.
With the defeat of Mordekai, Sam enters the cathedral and obtains the Grail. Suddenly, he hears a phone ringing in a confession booth. Inside, he answers it and confesses his 'sins' to Mental for killing his army and then threatens that he is going to finish Mental off. After the call, Sam uses the Grail to activate the backup spaceship to make his way to Sirius.
