The Keeper is a Pre-Hardmode boss fought after the Eye of Cthulhu.

While The Keeper is alive, her exclusive Music will play.

Spawn[edit | edit source]

The Keeper can be spawned by using a Mysterious Tablet at night time.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Attacks[edit | edit source]

The Keeper stays to the right of the player, shooting bolts and occasionally summoning Dying Souls.

When she is below 50% health, she will shriek, summoning many Dying Souls. She will also summon Skeleton Minions.

Expert Mode[edit | edit source]

In Expert Mode, once she is below 50%, she will summon 5 orbiting Dying Souls around her, and her skeleton minions will be replaced with Bone Worms.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Keeper was one of the 2 first bosses made for the mod, the other being The Mighty King Chicken.
  • Holding the Abandoned Teddy ends the fight peacefully, and doing so will cause her to drop Keeper's Circlet. Attempting to summon her after doing this will provide the message "But nobody came..." and not summon her. The tablet will still be consumed, however.
  • The Keeper’s official name is “Octavia”

Lore[edit | edit source]

Deep within the inner Catacombs of Gathuram, far below the surface, a Lost Soul found a host. As the soul fused with the corpse, it awoken as a Fallen. The Fallen only saw darkness, although there was occasional blue lights. The ground was littered with bones and puddles of water. Calling out, the Fallen hoped to hear another voice, but the catacombs were silent; the only sound she could hear was dripping water falling from the ceiling. Hours passed as the Fallen roamed the hushed corridors and rooms. It was all the same, not a soul in sight.

Days had passed, the Fallen was overwhelmed with loneliness and desperation. She found a black cloak which she then wore, she also discovered a wooden rod with an ancient skull on the top. Misery was taking over her, she wished for a second death, but she couldn’t kill herself. A week has passed and she was still alone. Desperate for company, she tried to learn Necromancy to create her own friends. It took months before complete success, and she had finally created a skeleton - she finally created a friend.

The first skeleton - the first friend - only responded to commands, it had neither emotions nor senses. Despite this, she tried to talk to it like another person, but to no avail. Over months of constructing, she had created a dozen skeletons, but they were all the same. To her surprise, the first skeleton seemed to be weakened greatly. She attempted to heal it, but nothing happened.

The passage of time was incomprehensible to the Fallen, she didn’t expect her first friend to revert so soon. Once again, she became only more desperate - she didn’t want to lose her first friend. The skull baton she found had a small amount of mana still inside it, however, the constant Necromancy had diluted it. When she strived to heal her friend again, she felt a numb pain course through her rotten body. The skeleton’s hollow eye sockets lit up with a tiny dot of white light, and a faded light emerged in its ribcage. The skeleton looked at her, the Fallen felt the skeleton’s presence for the first time. For the first time in years, a smile appeared on her face. She asked what the skeleton’s name is, it replied with a quiet voice: “Sk… ull… Dig… ger...”

In only a day, she had become addicted to the Forbidden Necromancy. Red eyes started forming on her black cloak, she became frail, many thin arms grew from her body. But her mind was foggy, she felt nothing, the Forbidden Necromancy had taken control. In this time, her first creation - Skull Digger - had become stronger, he was no longer a skeleton, he had flesh, and a mask of bone had formed on his face.

More and more, she become addicted to Forbidden Necromancy. Then one day, a sudden wave of extreme pain and agony flowed through her, she shrieked. Her skin burned, pieces of rusted metal emerged on her hands, her body distorted and grew into a monstrosity. When it ended, all she felt was a mixture of pain and power.
