The Brand.png

The Branded is a group of five individuals who are linked together via the mysterious Brand, an advanced Wanderer rune that allows body possession. An individual known as the Passenger uses this brand to control the members of the Branded one by one. After the Passenger is done with one and moves on to the next person, the victims were left disoriented and lose all memories of what happened during the possession. They can feel something was inside them but all they have is some vague and hazy recollections. Once the possession is over, the brand is burnt out.


The group consists of Jane Bell - a former bounty hunter, Cl'erns Qui'g - a man who was turned into a monstrous creature, Across Rivers - a protector of the Lost Fire Nation, Desidério Ríos - a devotee of the Absolutionist Church, and Constance Driftwood - an Oneirist.

Companion Banters[]

As Companions, members of the Branded have unique dialogues or interactions with each other that no other companion has.

    • Across Rivers: "He wanted me to get him a book on the spirits. I don't approve of his methods."

  • The Passenger could be considered as an in-world representation of the Player, who can make the protagonists do anything at their whim, even so far as killing their loved ones.
  • The Brand can be found at the entrance of the Blood Moon temple. This suggests the Wanderer learned the rune from the Ancients. Similarly, the icon of the Profane Linguistic affliction, the ability to understand the Gelsennig language, is also the Brand.
