Legacy of Kain Wiki

Vampire Hunter Pillagers were human vampire hunter enemies and part of Moebius's Mercenary Army. Encountered primarily by Raziel in Legacy of Kain: Defiance, they were the among the lowest ranked of the Vampire Hunter classes seen in Defiance and were seen predominantly in Raziel's chapters in the Blood Omen era at the Cemetery and Pillars of Nosgoth - although they would be featured again later a later chapter in Vorador's Mansion. They were notable for their use of grenade-like firebombs.


Vampire Hunter Pillagers were male troops of Moebius's Vampire hunter faction, encountered by Raziel in the Blood Omen era at the start of Defiance. The Pillagers wield a set of handheld claw-like blades and wore clothing that consisted of various mismatched materials including a white undershirt and several brown belt-like leather straps across the neck and chest and extra leather padding on the shoulders and forearms. They also wore khaki shorts with several further brown lkeather straps and padding on the thighs, knees and ankles - with lighter brown greaves and boots on the lower legs. Most of the pillagers hair was shaved into a mohawk and they grew long fu manchu style moustaches.[Defiance][Defiance/4][Defiance/6][Defiance/12][Defiance strategy guide]

Pillagers were the long range troops of the Vampire hunter faction in Defiance. They were generally quite weak in close-quarters combat and preferred to stay at range and throw grenade-like firebombs in a high arc. When pressed they could also use the claws to attack at close range using their notable agility to roll out of range. Despite their relative wekakness, their ability to disrupt battles from a distance made them a higher priority in combat. They were among the first enemies to be encountered by Raziel as he returned to the Material Realm in the Blood Omen era in Find the Path to the Pillars and could later be encountered in the chapters Find the Location of Vorador's Mansion and Battle Kain.[Defiance][Defiance/4][Defiance/6][Defiance/12][Defiance strategy guide]

Like many of the Vampire Hunter classes in Legacy of Kain: Defiance, Pillagers could be 'enhanced' by the spells of the Vampire hunter sorceresses.[Defiance][Defiance strategy guide][Defiance manual]
