Scouts were Humans belonging to the Watchers, characterized for long range, hit-and-run tactics. They fought alongside other Humans against the Vampires during the War for Nosgoth in the mid-events of Soul Reaver.
- "Professional and pitiless, Scouts were among the first of a new generation of Humans to take up arms against Nosgoth's Vampires. Armed with a precision bow, they are well used to hit-and-run tactics. Scouts swear loyalty to the Watchers, assassins skilled in picking off their enemies from the many hidden vantage points in the mountains of Dark Eden."
Scout weaponry was based on several longbow variants:
- Scout's Armor (default)
- Armor of the Watch
- Assassin's Shroud
- Blight Stalker's Garb
- Marksman's Regalia
- Scouts – Messengers, Wardens and Warriors at the Nosgoth official blog (by George Kelion)
- Dark Eden
