“Cecil! There is one way that non-members can be permitted. A Trial By Sphinx
“No one has invoked the Trial By Sphinx for decades! Not since the incident with Lord Belgrave.”
Misako and Cecil Putnam in "Riddle of the Sphinx"

The Sphinx is an ancient artifact located in the Explorers Club.

History

Prior to Seabound

Decades ago, Lord Belgrave invoked the Trial By Sphinx, and an incident occurred.

Riddle of the Sphinx

Misako tries to get back in the Explorers Club while asking Cecil Putnam to get the Storm Amulet. Misako tells Cecil that she can enter by invoking the trial by Sphinx. Cecil warns them, but summons the Sphinx anyways. The Sphinx asks who will answer the riddle, and Wu asks for the riddle.

The Sphinx states its riddle. Cole answers "cake", and one of the torches burns out, and the Sphinx declares it incorrect. Wu attempts "discipline," but another torch burns out. Kai answers "fire", and it is declared correct, with the Sphinx disappearing into the floor.
