[ Legacy of Kain: The Lost Worlds ]

Turel

article by Ben Lincoln

 

Turel was the second of Kain's Vampire Lieutenants. After freeing the Human Citadel from The Priestess' influence, Raziel would have used his newfound Possession ability to travel to Turel's home, The Turelim Clan Territory and face the last of his brothers.

The dialogue between Raziel and Turel which is still present in Soul Reaver's game data strongly implies that the key to his defeat lay in making use of a nearby source of water, but the details are not presently known. Consuming Turel's soul would have earned Raziel the Amplified Force Projectile ability.

When Turel was removed from the game, his dialogue was partially re-used for the mini-boss (described as "Morlock" in some official guides) from who Raziel acquires the standard Force Projectile power. "The Morlock Boss" was Turel's development codename (see Character Names).

Turel is visible in the opening FMV as one of the lieutenants who throws Raziel into The Abyss, and there is a coffin for him in The Tomb of The Sarafan.

This artwork, posted by Arnold Ayala on his WordPress blog, is believed to include the only publicly-disclosed images of the Turel model texture maps created for Soul Reaver.

 

There are no known in-game images of the evolved Turel.

Turel and his gift to Raziel were reintroduced to the series in Defiance.
