This man understands that existence and adversity are one and the same.

The Leper is one of the playable Character Classes in Darkest Dungeon.

Together with the Crusader, the Vestal and the Flagellant (released in the The Crimson Court DLC), he refuses to embark on missions if the Abomination is in the party.

Class Description[edit | edit source]

Struggle, and futility. All of life is a constant toil to keep oneself alive for just a little bit longer. And The Leper not only knows this, but he embraces it. Living a tortured existence has taught this man that one must rely on the self before any others, making him the most independent of those arriving to the Hamlet. He does not need the aid of others, for he knows how to channel his energy into frightening power, or curative energy. He cannot help others with this power, but he can draw on it to give himself strength that other men can only dream of, or the endurance that has kept himself going longer than any other man could. And when his massive blade falls, there is only death for those who stand in its wake. However, it is a slow and heavy blade, and agile foes may easily evade its massive arcs.

The Leper's eponymous disease has ruined his body, and at camp it becomes painfully evident how much it takes a toll not only on him, but those around him. Should the other's mental health be in question, The Leper can leave the others to give them peace of mind at the cost of his own well being. However if he needs relief he may let down his mask, while calming him looking upon such a malignant face will bring duress to his companions. But if he truly needs company, he can always sit and reflect, meditating with his blade, just as broken as he is. All will meet with death, there is no exception to this. The Leper's only goal is to see that as many of the accursed creatures of this land meet their appointment before he meets his own.

Combat Skills[edit | edit source]

A ruined man, a warrior, and a poet. The Leper is most effective when given a turn to focus himself before raising his massive blade. When he swings, it is all or nothing - crushing blows and massive damage or the empty whistling of a glancing blow. He is entirely self-sufficient, drawing strength from his life of trauma, and able to channel it into heals, protection, or unrelenting fury.[1]

Camping Skills[edit | edit source]

A loner and an outcast, the Leper will tend to shun the others in his group, preferring instead to mend his own dying body at the expense of the horror such an undertaking brings forth. In order to reduce his stress, the Leper can remove his mask, but such a thing is sure to unsettle his companions.
~ Survivalist

Camping skills are special skills heroes can use while they are camping. They take a certain number of "respite" points to use, and can only be used once per camp (unless the skill says otherwise). Most heroes have three shared camping skills and all heroes have 4 unique camping skills (With the Flagellant being the exception having only unique camping skills). Only 4 of these can be equipped at one time. Any Buffs or lasting effects given from a camping skill lasts for 4 battles.

The Leper is a self-reliant man, and as such he takes care of himself while he prepares for tomorrow's campaign. He can buff himself and healing his stress, but the Leper's means of relieving stress brings his companions stress. He can also heal the stress of others by isolating himself from them, but that puts strain on his body.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

Heavy and restricting, the Leper's bronzed cuirass can absorb all manner of punishing blow. His massive sword is slow to swing, but delivers crushing damage to anyone caught in its unstoppable arc.

Unlike other games, equipment upgrades in Darkest Dungeon are linear, all bought at the Blacksmith.

The Crimson Court DLC added special Trinket Sets, two for each hero. They confer powerful bonuses to the hero equipped with them and having both equipped at once yields an additional bonus, which is shown greyed out at the bottom. The origin dungeon for all Trinket Sets is the Courtyard and they all have the rarity Crimson Court.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Leper has inspirations taken from Baldwin the IV, a king of Jerusalem who was also known as "The Leper." In fact, one of the pregenerated names for The Leper is Baldwin.
  • One of his lines "I was a soldier" while Leper is under affliction "Masochism" suggests that Leper was a warrior, before the events of the game. The line of his Crimson Court set "The last treasure of a king" also theorizes if Leper was a ruler in his past.
  • The Leper appears to be passively suicidal, as seen in some of his barks when his stress is high or when afflicted.
