I found the seedlings wriggling in the earth. In my palm, they writhed helplessly. Their hide mottled and dried like dead leaves before falling away. These creatures grew soft and flesh-like, wrinkled like my own hands. They blossomed into something strange yet familiar.

Hadern, the Deliverer Description

  • This Shell is only available through the The Virtuous Cycle DLC.
  • Hadern is unique in that he can acquire and activate any one ability from each of the four other Shells after unlocking the respective Accretion abilities. This allows for a deeper level of customization and flexibility with builds. However, activating a skill incurs an additional cost of Tar and Glimpses, on top of unlocking the respective Accretion ability. As such, Hadern is currently the most expensive Shell to invest resources in.


Hadern, the Deliverer Stats



Where to find Hadern, the Deliverer

  • Hadern can be found on the second floor of Fallgrim Tower after collecting the Smoldering Mace, Martyr Blade, and the Hammer and Chisel weapons. You can then talk to him and will then be prompted to "One Last Glimpse" which will be a final battle with Hadern himself using his weapon, the Axatana. Defeat this two-stage boss battle to unlock his shell for the Foundling to use.

Hadern, the Deliverer Notes and Tips

  • You do not need to fully upgrade the four weapons to unlock him. Only the base weapons are needed to be able to talk and fight Hadern
  • After defeating Hadern, be sure to talk to him to unlock his weapon; the Axatana
  • Hadern is very versatile as he can unlock abilities from the other shells and make his Parries even more powerful and buff-inducing. That said, be sure to save Glimpses up for the right ones you want to unlock
  • Hadern is able to access Sester Genessa's store by pressing "Q"
  • When choosing a skill with Hadern from another shell, the Tar and Glimpse requirement is halved, so keep that in mind
