The Soldiers comprise the main fighting force of the Chilean expedition into the Abyss. They provide support to Katrien, taking her place if she dies. The Soldier is not able to use any items, but can carry the items that the player character dropped upon death. If a Soldier successfuly makes it to an altar, Katrien will be revived. For Ghost Monk and Pincoya, the Firefighter and the Officer (respectively) take the Soldier's place instead.
If the player has a camp token on an altar, every few encounters, one or more soldiers, firefighters, or officers will come to aid the player in battle.
Soldiers also appear as npcs who offer conversation. Wounded soldiers in the Abyss will give random loot when interacted with.
