Eyeless Wretches, also known as Lost Souls, were a class of non-playable character in Blood Omen 2, they were the human prisoners of the Eternal Prison .

Profile[edit | edit source]

Eyeless Wretches came in either gender, though they were predominantly female (only one male wretch is seen - aside from the torsos on the walls). The Wretches were dressed in rags (or a surgical gown) and had their eyes sewn shut [1] (or possibly removed altogether), presumably by their jailers, the Prison guardians.[2]

The wretches were presumably incarcerated on a variety of charges; some were allowed to roam corridors, others were confined to cells; some were even tortured in a special wing of the prison[Blood Omen 2]. Like other NPC's, the Wretches could speak to Kain, but their information was of little use and seemingly tainted by madness.[3][4][5]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Blood Omen 2 had several pieces of Eyeless Wretch dialogue removed from the game,[7] many are disturbing or humorous, including a whole poem about owls and two figures who proclaim "I'm in hell, but at least I don't have to work on videogame development!" [8]
