Nemesis - 01

Nemesis, by Alfred Rethel (1837).

In Greek mythology, Nemesis was a spirit of divine retribution against those who showed arrogance before the gods, as well as being the word defining one's worst enemy. She is similar to Alastor, who punishes those who have done evil deeds.

Although a respected goddess, Nemesis had brought much sorrow to mortals such as Echo and Narcissus. Narcissus was a very beautiful and arrogant hunter from the territory of Thespiae and Boeotia, who disdained the ones who loved him. Nemesis lured him to a pool where he saw his own reflection in the water and fell in love with it, not realizing it was only an image. He was unable to leave the beauty of his reflection and he eventually died. Nemesis believed that no one should ever have too much good, and she had always cursed those who were blessed with countless gifts.


Nemesis is a tall female, rapier-wielding ghost swordswoman who hunts were-beasts. She is normally invisible and fades in and out of view.

She remains stationary until the player is within range and then is able to freely move through the level to line up her attacks. Take note that her two sword attack motions have a wider range than they appear to have and she can do them in succession. She can only be damaged by attacking the sword.
