Smugglers,[1][2] also known as Bandits[3] or Outlaws,[4] were an enemy class encountered by Kain in Blood Omen 2. They were seen exclusively in Chapter 7: The Canyons .

DescriptionEdit

Smugglers were gangs of thieves and outlaws that roamed the Canyons preying on travelling merchants and their supplies.[3][4] They were not affiliated with the Sarafan, who apparently considered them a minor nuisance compared to the Lesser demons and the Seer [1](several characters throughout the level showed a belief that the Seer controlled the Lesser Demons[5][6]).

Smugglers came in two distinct variations (one male and one female); Male Smugglers wore cloth or leather and were armed with a Cutlass;[2] Female Smugglers were scantily dressed and armed with a Long swords and Throwing Knives for ranged attacks.[7] Smugglers were often not as powerful as Sarafan troops, but were much more agile[BO2].

NotesEdit

BO2-SmugglerF2

the female Mercenary class, mislabelled by the Prima Guide as a Smuggler class

  • Prima's Blood Omen 2 Guide also applies the term "female smuggler" to an axe wielding female enemy class present in the Canyons,[8] despite this variant class appearing to be aggressive towards other Smugglers and apparently acting to protect the convoys of the NPC Merchant Carters. These actions suggest that they are not in fact a smuggler class, but a Mercenary variant class (mentioned in the Prima Guide to be present in the canyons[6]); this is virtually confirmed by debug information - which labels the axe-wielding female class as "merc"; the same label it uses for male mercenaries [BO2].
  • Given the similarity in the name, it is likely that much of the items stolen by the Smugglers ends up in the businesses of the Smuggler's Den via the Smuggler's Tunnel, although no Smugglers are seen in that area.
