The Grizzled Seer is a minor character in Shovel Knight. He appears as a short, hunchbacked, old man with grizzled hair, beard, and horns. He dons a purple cloak and a staff and, as his name suggests, he is capable of predicting the future.

Shovel of HopeEdit

In Shovel of Hope, the Grizzled Seer can be found in the Village on the far right. He encourages Shovel Knight on his quest to the Tower of Fate. A second Grizzled Seer is seen in the beginning of Frigid Flight, however in a green robe instead of the blue one.

The Grizzled Seer reappears at the end among the rest of the village, as the Tower of Fate crumbles.

Plague of ShadowsEdit

In the ending of Plague of Shadows, the Grizzled appears among the inhabitants of the Village who watch the destruction of the Tower of Fate.

Specter of TormentEdit

In Specter of Torment, the Grizzled Seer is among the inhabitants of the Lich Yard who flee upon the invasion of their village by the undead.

King of CardsEdit

In King of Cards, the Grizzled Seer can be found in the right room of the Card Shack in the Lich Yard.
