Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code - Character 101

Get that "are you selling cookies?" joke out of the way now, because if this teeny titan hears it, she's liable to put a crossbow bolt through your jaw. The swiftest and most fragile of the playable characters - after all, she is technically a little girl - the Scout is nonetheless a death-dealing machine. Not the kind of pre-teen you'd want to mess with if she were babysitting for you.

The Scout's speed, coupled with twin daggers, make her something like a circular saw in physical battle. Her attacks don't do a great deal of damage - again, she's a little girl - but she makes up for it by dealing them out fast and furiously. It also doesn't hurt that her flurried strikes can cause extra bleeding damage or sap a victim's life force directly.

Still, the Scout's greatest strength is her devastating arsenal of long-range destructo-blasts, administered in rapid succession via an over-sized crossbow called an arbalest. She has a wide range of power-ups for this dag-nasty dart shooter: rapid-fire, freezing shots, or toxic bolts that also drive an enemy to attack friend and foe. She almost doesn't even need a beast form, but she's naturally got one anyway.

The scout even wields some unusual magic; she can call in a plague of flesh-eating insects, force enemies to spout gold every time they're hit, and even create a doppelganger - so she's actually a twin terror. With a range of abilities such as this, the scout obviously requires a bit of strategy to reach her full potential, but you can't say she isn't versatile.

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
