Smallville Wiki

The Kryptonian memory pendant belongs to the House of El.

The symbol on the pendant appears in the Kawatche caves.

The memory pendant is a Kryptonian device used to record memories that occurred in a given time as interactive experiences.

Physical Appearance

The design of the memory pendant that Jor-El used is the Kryptonian symbol for "journey," and was based on the original symbol of the House of El, suggesting that it may have been passed down through many generations of the family.

Powers and Abilities

When holding the memory pendant, touching an object that the original user encountered during the time that he recorded the memory triggers the device; the new user experiences the memories associated with the object.

Early life

Jor-El used to wear the pendant around his neck.

Jor-El used the memory pendant to record his memories from his visit to Smallville in 1961 and sealed it a compartment in the Kawatche Caves so that his father would not learn of his experiences.

Season Three

Clark wears the drifter's jacket and pendant to look like Joe's ghost and frighten Mayor William Tate.

In 2003, Jor-El's son Clark Kent, recovered the device and used it to solve the murder of Lana Lang's great-aunt Louise McCallum.
