Due to Alain's previous connections to the Shatter-Shields of Windhelm as well as the radiant conversations regarding the fact that their family warhammer has been stolen, it is assumed that this is the Shatter-Shields' aforementioned missing hammer.
- When wielding the warhammer in Windhelm, guards may notice it and comment on it. The comment names the weapon as "Aegisbane" and refers to it as the heirloom of the Shatter-Shields. The guard concludes the comment by stating that the last time it was heard of, it was stolen by Alain Dufont and Muiri. This means that this is in fact the stolen warhammer. There is no known way to return the weapon to its owners.
- The name of the warhammer may be a reference to the Shatter-Shields' name, as "aegis" is Greek for "shield," and so it implies that it destroys shields.
- Aegisbane looks completely identical to a normal iron warhammer, the only difference being its name and Frost Enchantment.
- Despite being unique, the enchantment is quite weak compared to other frost enchanted unique weapons, such as Firiniel's End and Chillrend.
- Aegisbane is likely intended to be a parallel of the Aegis-Fang from the Forgotten Realms universe in Dungeons & Dragons.
