"Oh, don't stare. How would you look after aeons in some ghastly crypt? But your people are rather prone to death. Mine are not. And yet when I emerged from my completely unjustified imprisonment, I found them gone, our culture forgotten, any trace of the world I knew all but obliterated. I must even hide my true face beneath an ever-shifting mask for fear you savages will attack me! That is how I wander this strange world, trying to uncover the truth about a history you primitive people never even knew existed."
- "You woke up and your world was gone. The last of your kind, you hide behind a charmed mask, searching for the truth about a history that no one knew existed."
- If you are interested in the lore of the game and its history, it is highly recommended to include Fane in your party. The other Origins characters have had or may have noteworthy effects on their respective races, but Fane's actions in his ancient past (which he has initially forgotten) literally reshaped the entire world itself and every race now currently in it, and you will only discover how with him in your party and explore diligently.
- If not selected as an Origin, Fane is located in the Hidden Alcove just north of Fort Joy. Also at the Sanctuary of Amadia, approximately X:392 Y21.
- Can also be recruited on the Lady Vengeance, after fighting Alexander. Fane is in the middle zone of the ship in the sleeping quarters.
- If Fane is not in your party before fighting Dallis on Lady Vengeance, he will die and can no longer be recruited.
- Regular healing spells hurt Fane for he is an undead. Poison heals him. You can pick up and carry a Barrel of Ooze with you. It can be used an unlimited number of times in Crafting when combined with an Empty Potion Bottle to create a Poison Potion, giving you an excellent constant source of healing.
- It is beneficial to keep a Poison Wand on Fane. Manually fire it into the ground and have Fane walk into the puddle, and you will have an unlimited source of healing for him, as well as the surface for Elemental Affinity talent if is being utilized on your Fane's build.
- Fane's bony fingers can be used as an unbreakable lockpick. With level one thievery all chests and doors in Fort Joy should be accessible.
The Mask of the Shapeshifter
Fane's Mask of the Shapeshifter, which you had at the start of the game, is soon stolen by Windego during the events at the Merryweather. You can talk to Nebora about crafting another, who will then advise you to speak to Kniles The Flenser. Alternatively, you could attempt to retrieve it back by killing Windego at the beach north of Fort Joy.
If you have not already, pick up Atusa's leg outside the gates of Fort Joy (Note: this belongs to Magister Atusa, who when the party first arrives at the fort, is slaughtered by Dallis The Hammer) and give it to Kniles the Flenser. He will give you the Face Ripper. You could also instead choose to kill him and afterwards loot it from his corpse.
The Ancient Temple and the Eternal Aetera
Have Fane interact with the sarcophagus in the Ancient Temple within the Blackpits Mine, in the Reaper's Coast (Act II; The Midnight Oil, A Generous Offer or Dark Dealings in the Blackpits). The Eternal Aetera appears, and upon attempting to speak in a language unknown to most of the other inhabitants of Rivellon, is shocked when she realizes Fane understands her words. Here, you have the option to learn about the fate of Fane's people, and more, updating the journal.
The Nameless Isle and the God King
On Nameless Isle, Fane will recognize the structures belongs to Eternals. Later, if Fane is your main character, he can choose whether to serve God King or not (if you sided with black rings, Thinning the Herd).
At Arx, a former colleague of Fane's accosted him in hexapod Voidwoken form. She suggested he take the power of Divinity and use it to restore the Eternals. She said he could seal the God King on the other side of the Veil, saving the Eternals from the Void.
In the Crypt of Lucian, persuade Fane to support your claim to divinity, or support him to be next divine. (or kill him if he refused to support you.)
