"The Lost Scepter" is the thirtieth episode of Mysticons, and the tenth episode of its second season.



The Mysticons race against The Vexicons to retrieve an ancient and powerful scepter. Zarya is left to watch her stepbrother at the Stronghold, much to her annoyance, while the others try to solve the riddles left by the old, old King Lorius to Glorious to find his lost scepter before the Vexicons hand it over to their Star Mistress.


In the Episode

  • Zarya meets her birth mother for the first time, even though she remains a statue.

Outside the Episode

  • A new race of magical creatures are introduced: the Vexicons, who may be a reference to the Rowdyruff Boys who are the stronger, male counterparts of the Powerpuff Girls, and the four Knights of Destruction- Shagon the Hate, Khor the Destroyer, Tridart the Despair and Ember the Pain- who combat the second generation of Guardians of the Veil- Will Vandom, Irma Lair, Taranee Cook, Cornelia Hale and Hay Lin- and were also created by the dark emotions of the corrupt original fifth Guardian Nerissa in the second season of W.I.T.C.H.
  • This episode reveals that Drake City was once ruled by a tyrannical, child-like king known as "Lorious the Glorious" until the Goodfeys eventually took over the royal bloodline.

  • Gawayne: "On second thought, that's kind of my thing. I help people. So what can I do for you?"

Character Notes
Vexicons (full debut) The dark counterparts of the Mysticons, called forth from the evil pages of Proxima's Codex in the previous episode.

They race the Mysticons all across the realm to retrieve an ancient and very powerful scepter that has been lost to Gemina's history, so they can present it to their "mother."

Gawayne Is aware that Zarya is his other stepsister whom he already thinks is lame as Arkayna.

Uses the lost sceptor to control Proxima and the Vesticons to leave his newly found fortress but later, without thinking, incinerated it.

Queen Goodfey In the throne room, her bone form is met by her youngest twin daughter, Zarya, whom she does not remeber.
King Darius His bone form remains in the throne room, next to his second wife's statue. Seems to be Gawayne's role model due to the way he cried when Zarya mentioned him.
Arkayna Introduces their petrified mother to Zarya, who is not sure what to say to a mother who never knew she had another daughter.
Zarya Meets her birth mother up close for the first time, though in solid bone.

Has to watch Gawayne while Arkayna, Piper, and Em try to solve the riddles.

Proxima Orders Gawayne to use the mind-controlling abilities of the scepter to order the Mysticons to hand over their weapons, thus rending them powerless. However, she is ordered to release Gwayne and leave with her "super cool" Vexicons. She does so, vowing that "this isn't over."
Malvaron Deduces that the Vexicons were created from Proxima's Dark Codex. He magically creates parchment and quill to give to Piper who has seen an inscription on Gawayne's forehead.
