The worshippers, or vampire worshippers, were a subclass of humans active during the events of Soul Reaver. They were humans who worshipped the vampires of Kain's empire as if they were gods.

ProfileEdit

DevelopmentEdit

There is another sub-class of humans, who have adapted to the vampire menace by serving their tormentors and worshipping them as gods. The worshippers fall into two classes: Novitiates, who wield decorative but deadly staves; and Adepts, who use their sacrificial knives as weapons.

The worshippers, in their blind allegiance to their vampire masters, will always view Raziel as an enemy and cannot be swayed by Raziel's behavior. The worshippers are an insidious threat to the human population, since they kidnap victims for blood sacrifices. Considering no sacrifice too great, they will also gladly give their own blood, and lives, if necessary, to sustain their vampire masters.

The worshippers, in their blind allegiance to their vampire masters, will always view Raziel as an enemy, and cannot be swayed (like their fellow humans) by Raziel's behaviour.

A worshipper in 'City9'

Worshippers were present in the Soul Reaver alphas but were only seen sparingly. They were not found in the Silenced Cathedral, but were instead found in the City and only one Adept was present, placed in the 'City 9' area outside the temple and passage leading to the Undercity. No worshippers were found in the Undercity itself - although the area was notably unfinished and they may have been intended to feature there. The Knife weapon of the adepts could be picked up and used when dropped.

NotesEdit

The ultimate fate of individual Vampire Worshippers is unknown - those deemed worthy may have eventually been recruited to become vampires themselves.
