It's the plain looking one that's special. After losing Everway's civil war, the Whiteoar family gave these simple leather thongs to their agents. While these ankle bracelets are not powerful enough to open one of the Whiteoar's Seagates, they do allow their agents to make a quick if temporary escape, by hiding in Tidal Pools - elemental interstices that can be accessed from river, lake, or sea water. In a Tidal Pool, the swimmer will be in an area with air and water. S/he will need to swim, tread water, or have something to float on like a surf board in order to avoid drowning. They may have strange company swimming below them in the Tidal Pool, and it is often quite hungry.
Mechanics: The anklet must be immersed in river, lake, or sea water. The wearer upon willing it so, will find him/herself shifted to a Tidal Pool until the next low tide, when they are ejected. The anklet will not work again until the next high tide.
