Born in: Arborstone
Nation: Kurzick
Profession: Monk
Age: 22
Danika zu Heltzer dwells with the rest of her family in the fortress-like Cathedral zu Heltzer, a monument to Saint Viktor (one of the two champions who slew Shiro Tagachi on the day of the Jade Wind). Like her father Count Petrov zu Heltzer, leader of the great Kurzick House that bears their last name, Danika is proud to name the venerable Viktor as an ancestor. Unlike her father, Danika is much more open-minded toward non-Kurzicks and the other Kurzick Houses. This is probably attributable to her avid reading habits. To overcome the extreme boredom of what she considers her “imprisonment” in the cathedral, she has voraciously devoured the contents of countless tomes in the zu Heltzer family library, especially those that speak of other lands and other peoples.

Danika has never been more frustrated with the Kurzicks’ isolationist policies, which she believes can only lead to the further decline of her people, and indeed her world. She is eager to venture into the world outside Echovald Forest, and find new allies for all the Kurzicks. Like Argo, her sense of justice is strong, and she would be among the first of the Kurzicks to set aside factional differences should a greater threat arise. She has even had some contact, against her father’s strict orders, with House Vasburg, the longtime rivals of House zu Heltzer.

12 Divine Favor, 12 Healing Prayers


During The Count's Daughter, Arborstone, The Eternal Grove, and Raisu Palace.


Eye of the North

15 Healing Prayers


  • No condition removal.
  • No active energy management.
  • Healing Breeze is not energy efficient or used effectively by the AI.
  • Resurrection Chant is a half-range spell and she sometimes wades into the middle of the battle to use it.


In Sunjiang District (explorable area) and Pongmei Valley, during the quest the Count's Daughter:

"I am no longer content to remain in the protective confines of my society. My people think to keep evil at bay by reading signs and portents, performing rituals, and blindly following the words of the Redemptors...but we are no safer from evil than our neighbors, and we are doing nothing to help. I simply can't sit still any longer."

Arborstone mission:

Before retrieving the Urn of Saint Viktor:
"Now, remember...this place is sacrosanct to my family. It's been heavily guarded, and not even I know every ward and protection that's been put into place. But don't worry; our defenses would NEVER harm a zu Heltzer. As long as you're with me, you'll be safe."
After retrieving the Urn of Saint Viktor:
"I don't understand. This wasn't supposed to happen! Not while someone from House zu Heltzer was here. It must be an omen....
The cathedral has sealed itself and its guardians have been awakened. They've been enchanted to attack intruders, and they won't rest until we're as dead as the bodies entombed here. I don't know how to turn them off.... Our only hope is to make our way to the main entrance so that I can perform the necessary spell and open the gate.
Dwayna protect us; Balthazar give us strength. We're going to need it."

Echovald Forest towns and outposts:

"If I cannot protect my people, who will? I will not sit in these great towers of stone and beauty while the world crumbles around itself. I am with you, until the end of all things. Can I help you with anything?"

Raisu Palace mission:

"All my life I have watched from the high towers and safe halls of my family's holdings as events unfolded in the outside world. We Kurzicks were too caught up in endless prayers and deliberation to take any action. In so doing, we let our honor fade away. Today, I am here to regain our honor and the pride of our ancestors."
Ask Shall I come with you and help save the emperor?
"Shall I join you on this noble mission to save the emperor? Once you decide to bring me along, you cannot change your mind."
Yes Accept
"Now is the time for action! The time for deliberation is past."
No Decline

Divine Path:

"I am indebted to you for everything you have done for me, <character name>. I only hope that we can use the lessons learned in all of this to forge a lasting peace with the Luxons."


Echovald Forest:

"Brutus and Sheena have been with me since birth. They aren't ordinary Rot Wallows."
"I remember watching my brothers train for the dark dance with the Luxons, seeing them in action was like witnessing a divine work of art."
"These forests are petrified, not those who dwell within them."

Battle quotes[edit]

"Death dare not sing its song while I am here."
"House zu Heltzer!"
"Saint Viktor guides me!"
"Saints be true."
"The gods are with us."
"The light passes from me into you."
"We will see the end of this."
"You will not die today."
