The Old Guardian is a non-playable character and possible unique enemy in Fear & Hunger.


"The figurine created by the older gods to protect the golden temple of the true king. He has seen millennia go by, but still the fool waits for a false prophecy."
- The New Gods when asked about the Old Guardian.

The figurine was created by the Old Gods to protect the Golden Temple of the True King. The figurine still waits for the True King to come back and take his true throne. It has been a millennia since, and he still continues to wait for a 'false prophecy'. Presumably, he might have fought the Fellowship for their right to enter the Golden Temple of the True King. He eventually starts to believe he might not be worth the King's audience, and asks for the player to engage in a battle to the death as a means of confirmation.

Location and behaviour

If interacted with in the past version of Ma'habre, the Old Guardian will not be hostile, simply sharing lore on the ancient city with the player.

In the present version of Ma'habre, he will realocate to the bridge area, looking at the horizon out to the darkness. After noticing the player's presence, he will start a fight.

He fights with his fists and feet. He does not deal a lot of damage with his fists if the player and the party has good equipment. They must be aware for his Axe Kicks, as his feet do more damage than his arms.

His torso has the lowest health pool out of any body part, therefore it is better to just focus on the torso with a decent party.

If earlier in the game, you destroy the Nameless Figurine’s arms, the Old Guardian will also have his arms missing.


His red scarf can be looted from his corpse, as a trophy to show that the player did defeat the Old Guardian.

Using a Soul stone grants the Old Guardian soul, which "prevents dying". Should a character equipped with the Old Guardian Soul take a fatal blow (or multiple), they instead survive with 1 Body. The soul then vanishes at the end of the turn.
