The Ghost is an unnamed NPC designed by Motion Twin artist Gwen. It appears when the player reaches a Challenge Rift for the first time, as the bearer of a tutorial message. The Ghost explains to the Beheaded that opening the chest will grant him great loot (namely a Scroll of Power, an amulet and cells) but it will be hard to get out of the rift.
- "NYAH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!"
- "So you've stumbled through a rift, eh..."
- "Bet you'd like to take these little beauties with you, now wouldn't you?"
- "Well, if you do decide to take them... Getting out won't be anything like getting in..."
- "Good luck... NYAH HA HA HA HA HA HA!"
There is no dialogue with the ghost after this.
There is currently nothing known about the Ghost, not even his name. It seems he is mostly a tutorial character with no real backstory.
- The Ghost can always be seen for a split-second upon entering a Challenge Rift, even if the full cutscene does not show.
