The Introvert and Ancient Spirit duo.

Etymology

Kris's name is a synonym for the term saber, a specific type of sword.

Tannherjar's name is a portmanteau of the name of the Patron who sponsored the character, Tanner, and einherjar, the term used for individuals who passed on in Norse mythology and have entered Valhalla.

Biography

Tannherjar is an ancient spirit of a warrior from long before HorrorVale had its name. Trapped in a sword and without a body, he waited for someone to borrow a body from.

Before meeting Tannherjar, Kris was an 18-year-old NEET who rarely left the house except to get a new Boo-Ray or game. One fateful day, she finds a possessed blade and forges a pact with its spirit. Granting her armor and some much-needed confidence, they set off on new adventures with Alice and crew.

Recruiting

Kris and Tannherjar are an optional playable character duo. They are first met in act (?) at (Location) where Alice (Interacts) before the two of them join the team.

Design

Kris

Kris is freckled, short-haired ghoul wearing a long dark red battle robe cover in bits of bronze armor with the breastplate notably resembling a Jack-O'-lantern.

Tannherjar

Tannherjar is a spectral skull covered in green flame and wearing a black flat cap. The line on his nose combined with his eye sockets create a design similar to glasses. His soul is connected to a broadsword with two green gems embedded in the blade and a guard that resembles a horned Jack-O'-lantern.

Gameplay

Kris has an "install" function where after gaining blood lust by damaging or defeating enemies, Tannherjar can come out of the sword and possess her fully - giving her fire-based attacks, raising her stats and giving her access to her most powerful moves. According to her creator, Kris will possess incredibly low speed to allow her to snag kills more easily.
