The Owl Familiar is an Owl that follows the player around and helps them.
Game specific informationEdit
Obtaining this glyph is the requirement for completing Serge's "Show Me the Owl!" quest. Owls can be found prominently perched on tree branches in Tristis Pass. When the glyph has been obtained, Shanoa must return to Wygol Village and activate it to call an owl familiar. Talking to Serge at this moment will complete the quest.
- Familiars in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia reach Level 2 at 32,767 XP and max out at 65,535 XP, which is Level 3 (the message "LEVEL UP" will appear onscreen when a new level has been reached). Unfortunately, there's no in-game way of checking how much experience a familiar has gained. They gain 3 XP for hitting an enemy and they gain 2,000 XP when Shanoa absorbs another copy of their own glyph. So, according to this math, it takes 17 copies (rounded up from 16.38 and not taking into account enemies hit/killed by the familiar itself) of the glyph to grow one level. If the familiar is onscreen at the moment it gains a level, it will not immediately display its new abilities; it must first be sent away and summoned again.
