Effects[edit | edit source]

  • This item has a different pickup quote and effect depending on the character it is picked up as:
Character Pickup Quote Effect
Isaac Choose your destiny Doubles item pedestal spawns like There's Options. You can only take 1 of each pair, but it affects all item sources. Extra choices in Devil Rooms and shops are free.
Magdalene HP up Grants 3 heart containers
Cain Locks don't stand a chance Grants a golden key on each floor, essentially giving Cain infinite keys.
Judas Knowledge is power Using books deals damage to all enemies in the room in addition to their normal effect, similar to a black heart or the Necronomicon effect.
??? Stronger spirit HP ups give 2 soul hearts instead of one.
Eve Your very own murder Getting hit will occasionally spawn additional Dead Birds that persist between rooms.
Samson (empty description) No special effect as of now, "mimics" a random item instead
Azazel (empty description) No special effect as of now, "mimics" a random item instead
Lazarus (empty description) No special effect as of now, "mimics" a random item instead
Eden ??? Gives a random item.
The Lost Better destiny Removes HP upgrades from the item pools.
Bethany Conserve your faith Using saved up hearts to complete the active item's charge will occasionally not use any hearts.
Jacob & Esau What's yours is mine Upon obtaining it, the character that collects it obtains three passive items of the other.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item originated from the Binding of Isaac: Community Remix mod, where it was known as 'Soul Script'.
  • The item's new name and unlock requirement are likely a reference to the biblical story of Jacob and Esau, in which Esau trades his birthrights to Jacob in exchange for stew. The reference is strengthened by the Birthright's specific effect when taken by Jacob or Esau, allowing them to "inherit" the items of their brother.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Bug Bug! This item tends to randomly crash the game upon pick up. Most noticed when picking up this item with the Jacob & Esau character if the other character does not have at least 3 passive items.
Bug Bug! When picked up as Isaac, the game will often crash when a beggar or machine generates an item pedestal.
