So I'm replaying the LoK series (or as best as I can when verifying my cache on steam deleted my saves for SR1, but that's another story), and while going through the light forge, I noticed a similarity between the masks (I think they're masks) of the Greater Thralls and the design of the tattoos or warpaint that the Dumahim have in Nosgoth. It's not exactly the same, but it was close enough to get my attention. It could just be nothing, but I'm wondering if there's a connection.

there is a similarity between the two but it could just be coincidental given the time span between the games.

Hmmmm so they already had warpaint?, I might have to replay SR1 to have a look myself, and as for steam, yeah it's a pain when it deletes your saves, you could always turn off cloud saving and autoupdating that might help

No, those are pics of one class of thralls that guarded the forges in Soul Reaver 2.

Ahh my bad, still they look quite cool, plus which forge did they guard, because off the picture it looks like the light forge, but it's been a while since i played SR2

Haven't played for a while, but weren't the greater ones the annoying shield ones?

Hmmm I think so, they were also the ones that ideally were better to waste glyph energy on, cause they were such a pain

Yeah they were really irritating. I think that's the fate of becoming an undead creature other than a vampire in Nosgoth - take up a career in irritating.

There is no glyph energy in SR2. These ones did have shields, sometimes accompanied by two sword wielding others thralls. They were in I believe all of the forges (since you need either shields to open doors, or used as light collecting dishes), except the Fire Forge (which has no enemies), and they also inhabit Janos' Retreat.

I actually like tho role of Greater Thralls that it were the strongest of the Thrall variant enemies seen in Soul Reaver 2. As with other thrall variants.

I didn't actually mean glyph forges, I mean't reaver forges
