"But all are customers, you see. Just customers who want Spirit Shards."

—Twillen, Ori and the Will of the Wisps

Twillen is a mysterious travelling merchant in Ori and the Will of the Wisps who sells and upgrades Spirit Shards for Ori. He is first found at the entrance to Kwolok's Hollow, but after the first meeting he moves to Wellspring Glades.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Twillen wears a tall brown hat, a brown scarf, a brown robe dotted with spots and carries glowing blue shards with him inside his robe or in a basket he carries on his back, displaying them when he sells or upgrades shards for Ori. His face is shadowed by his hat, but his yellow eyes can be seen and black boots can be seen peeking out from the bottom of his robe.

Shard Upgrades[edit | edit source]

First encounter Ooh. The glowing stranger my customers speak of with such...awe. Tell me, is it usual for your kind to fall from the sky? I have met many curiosities on my travels, after all. Oh yes. Some fall, some fly, some prowl, some...slither. But all are customers, you see. Just customers who want Spirit Shards.
At Kwolok's Hollow entrance Ah. You met the feathered traveler. Not yet a customer, oh no. He doesn't quite agree with the way of...appreciating such ancient temples, you see. But what a waste it would be, leaving my dazzling Shards to lie, useless and forgotten! Even so, I grow weary of the hunt. Perhaps I will find someplace to set up a proper shop. Someplace less...dank.
Returning to Twillen A returning customer! Always a welcome sight, oh yes. Your name is spoken ever more loudly. Even so, I have heard many names on my journeys, you see. The names buy my shards, and pass. They sound quite the same, oh yes. Still, my shards gleam more brightly around you. Perhaps yours is the one to remember. But for that, you would need to do something worth remembering, you see.
Talking Ooh. The many names that buy my shards are curious about my travels, oh yes. I learned many things. I lost many things. But it is easy to find new shards, you see. Some things are less easy to replace.
After Ku's injury My customers whisper of your friend. They say you are trying to save her. I had a friend once, you see, before I had only my shining shards.
Upon giving secret shard Ooh, my my my. A raw shard, and in pristine condition!
Greeting Care to refine your spirit shards? Or buy an entirely new shard, perhaps?
Leaving Thank you for your patronage.

Of course.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • During development, a tribe of small, hostile creatures from Twillen's race was considered. The idea was later discarded and Twillen became the only representative of their kind.[1]
  • Twillen was supposed to be accompanied by a dog-like creature, trained to sniff for shards in abandoned places. The companion however was not included in the final game.[2]
