I don't think that's really enough to evidence infer Verra's general  
attitude towards personal possessions. See the previous thread about how  
many GWs "just happen" to have some relation to Verra. If she is actively  
trying to tie GWs to herself then collecting Spellbreaker from Vlad would  
have been counter-productive. Not to mention possibly needlessly annoying  
one of her more useful supporters.

Everything works in Theory.

I need to learn how to program in Theory.
