It was partially empathic and could impart weak, base emotions upon its wielder.
The sword was later broken, and then repaired, but without all of the strong defensive magic it formerly had.
Later on, Catti-brie combined the blade with Vidrinath by using the Great Forge of Gauntlgrym. With the help of the primordial guiding her, the act not only restored much of the blade's former ability but also greatly improved its cutting edge and defensive power as well, to the level of Vidrinath's incredible former edge and possibly beyond. Drizzt noted that the new blade had become vastly superior to the original Twinkle after wielding it in mock combat, choosing to use it as his main-hand weapon henceforth instead of Icingdeath, despite having favored the latter for over a century. Additionally, Twinkle gained Vidrinath's drow poison enchantment, allowing Drizzt to defeat his enemies in a non-lethal fashion, something that was deemed a fitting tool to complement Drizzt's overall disposition.
