<Gwen> the pitiless is a neutral NPC that only appears in Elona+. She is a grown-up version of <Gwen> the innocent, and replaces her in Yowyn after Act 1 has been completed.

The years have not been kind to <Gwen>, and she has become much more serious as a result. She no longer follows the player around Yowyn, instead standing on a spot near the well in the center of the town. She also stays quiet unless attacked.

She is a lot more powerful than most NPCs in North Tyris, barring the Chaos, Fort, and bosses. In combat, she attacks from melee, and can use the Insult special action and cast Slow and Mist of Frailness. She's something of an upgraded Silver eyed witch.

She sometimes drops the Secret treasure of the saint upon death. Additionally, every two play time hours, her level is incremented by her total number of deaths (only those after her transition into "the pitiless" and only up to 500), resulting in gains to stats, speed, and skills.

She can be copied with an Astral Light Pen if the conditions are met. Her copy doesn't retain the ability to level up automatically or any additional levels or stats the original <Gwen> may have gained after respawn, but any of said levels are figured into the Astral Pen calculation.


<Gwen> the pitiless cannot be evolved.

Curiously enough, if <Gwen> the innocent is copied and evolved with an <evolution heart>, this evolution uses the same sprite as her "pitiless" counterpart, but lacks any of said counterpart's spells and special actions.


Flavor text[]

The following dialogue is taken from Elona Custom version 1.65.

Hostile "I simply cannot accept a life of being constantly afraid of the shadow of monsters."
"I may have changed, but I'm still alive. And I'll keep fighting to keep it that way."
"Despair? Let ME tell you about despair."
"It's good to carve the taste of fear into your heart!"
Victory "No more. I won't allow you to make anyone sad any longer."
"Someone like you isn't worthy to receive the blessings of the gods."
Death "Flowers blossom and wither... We are no different."
"Mom always told me that you're reunited with everyone once you die... I wonder if I'll get to see mom again."

  • As before, she's a direct reference to Gwen, a character from the Guild Wars series. Specifically, she's a reference to the stoic, vengeful post-Searing Gwen.
  • If copied with an Astral Pen, her copy will retain the original's tendency to remain still on a single tile if left to stay in Your Home, the Ranch, the Doujou or the Discarded ranch.
