The Hand is variously ascribed a number of magical abilities that it is supposed to produce whilst the wick stays lit, including providing a light that only the wielder can see, [[SkeletonKey unlocking any door]] it comes across or sending anyone into a household/anyone who looks into the flame to sleep/[[TheParalyzer paralyzing them]]. Generally any power that would be of use to a sneak thief. Generally an artifact of BlackMagic--something that no respectable sorcerer would own, use, or even want to touch.

* In ''VideoGame/ConquestOfElysium2'', the necromancer class uses Hands of Glory as catalyst for their more complex necromantic rituals, opening the veil between life and death to summon undead monsters or obtain knowledge. The sequel ''Conquest of Elysium 4'' adds the Markgraf class, who has a hobbit necromancer sidekick that also uses Hands of Glory for their rituals.

-->It is possible that someone plucked an old love from the grave to send you this. More likely they bought it at Hangman's Arch. Possibly it means they value you more than their own right hand. It's hard to be certain.
