Luan Art
Stage Tower of Fate (flashback)

Spoiler warning!
This article contains plot details about an event that occurs later in the game.

Luan Seatlan was Donovan's partner in his former life, and Reize's father.

Appearance Edit

Luan has wild black hair, a black beard, and a red headband to go along with it. He wears a red outfit, with small plates of golden armor, and has a large, bandaged sword.

Personality Edit

While he is not seen much, only being seen in the flashbacks in Specter of Torment, he is shown to be very caring of Donovan and Reize. In the second flashback scene, he was killed by Donovan when trying to convince his friend to flee after the fight against Shield Knight. According to himself, in his youth Luan was reckless, brash and naive, resulting in many near death experinces who he, in a later age, would end up regretting.

Trivia Edit

  • Like how Seizui created Reize, he also created Luan. However, he was redesigned to fit the Shovel Knight world better, thus looking very different to his original incarnation.
  • If the player dies during a flashback, Luan will also collapse to the ground.
  • Luan has a sprite that shows his sword, and it can be seen for a split second right before he stabs it into a wall to help Donovan reach a height.
  • If not found in the Memory of Adventure, Luan will personally give Donovan the Caltrops in the beginning of the Memory of Conflict, regarding them as a fine weapon and a possible usefull asset for their return trip from the Tower. After initially mocking them as scavenged scrap metal, Donovan in the end comply with his friend and add them in his equipment.
