The developers of the upcoming turn-based RPG King’s Bounty II have revealed the third of the available protagonists. Previously, the team revealed paladin Elisa and magic-wielding countess Katharine.
A long time ago, Aivar, a descendant of an impoverished noble family, used to be a knight of the Royal Guard. However, at a crucial moment, he refused to support the coup that eventually led to king Claudius’s ascension to the throne.
This got him banished from the Guard. Aivar escaped to Artisania, where he earned a fine reputation as a mercenary and became the captain of his own troop: the Hounds of War.

King’s Bounty II will be launching on August 24th, 2021 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
