Keepsakes are items that can be equipped to obtain some sort of benefit during a run. They are acquired by giving Nectar to various characters for the first time. A keepsake can be equipped in the display case in the Training Grounds before a run.

Things to note about using Keepsakes:

  • Once a keepsake has been equipped and Melinoë has left the Crossroads, the keepsake cannot be swapped out for a different one except between regions.
    • Access to a keepsake display case between regions is unlocked with the Kindred Keepsakes Incantation.
    • Caution: Closing the keepsake display after changing keepsakes will lock the display from being accessed again until the next post-boss room.
  • If you switch out of a keepsake mid-run, you cannot switch back to it for the rest of the run.
  • Keepsakes automatically rank up when enough encounters are cleared while the keepsake is equipped.
    • Rank 2: 25 encounters
    • Rank 3: 50 encounters

    • 300 Sec = 5min 0s
  • The Cherished Heirloom II Cherished Heirloom Duo Boon can upgrade a Keepsake's effect from Epic to Heroic.

Keepsakes From Olympians[ | ]

All of the Olympian Keepsakes (except the ones from Hermes and Artemis) have the same function:

A Boon of (God Name) is likely. You can Rarify his/her Common/Rare/Epic blessings once this night.

Additional Notes[ | ]

  • At Rank 1, these keepsakes can only be used with Common Boons; at Rank 2, it can be used with Common OR Rare Boons, and so on.
  • Rarifying will increase rarity by 1. For example, a Boon that started out Rare will become Epic, a Boon that started out Epic will become Heroic, etc.
  • The Cherished Heirloom II Cherished Heirloom Duo Boon does not work with Olympian Keepsakes.

Trivia[ | ]

  • The Luckier Tooth keepsake is a reference to the Lucky Tooth from the first game. Since this one is Luckier, it gives 1 more Life when you die.
  • Similarly to the first game, these keepsakes also have references to Greek myth:
    • Silver Wheel - a wheel symbol that's associated with Hecate.
    • Engraved Pin - references Moros's role alongside the Fates.
    • Metallic Droplet - the substance inside the veil is probably Mercury, which is Hermes's Roman counterpart.
    • White Antler - a reference to Artemis's sacred animal, the deer.
    • Iridescent Fan - possibly a reference to the rainbow goddess Iris, who was a messenger of Hera.
    • Adamant Shard - in myth, adamant is a powerful metal used by the gods, Hephaestus himself using it at one point.
    • Lion Fang - a nod to the Nemean Lion which Heracles slew.
    • Blackened Fleece - an opposite and reference to the Golden Fleece, an item connected to Medea.
    • Crystal Figurine - resembles a pig, which Circe is known to turn tresspassers into.
