“Gathering together the most accomplished explorers in Paris, I looked closely at each. Who would become my new right hand?”
The Leader Selection screen with six of the eight leaders unlocked.

The Leader or Explorer is the player's chosen avatar and head of the party. Leaders are chosen at the beginning of the Campaign and cannot be changed or removed as long as they remain alive.

The Big Game Hunter and Anthropologist are available immediately, while the others are unlocked by completing specific achievements.

Leader characters

Each Leader has unique traits and stats that encourage certain play styles. They also have exclusive Perks available after each trek in addition to the standard perks.

Leaders start with more Health Inline74.png than Companions, and have a Capacity Inline02.png of 4 instead of 2. They start the campaign at Experience Level 2.

Note: In the table below, Health and Traits are based on Level 1. Since Leaders start at Level 2 they will have +5 Health, and one level-up increase already applied to traits.

Each Leader starts with one pre-determined Level 1 Hand Item and two pre-determined Level 1 Companions.
