We've put together a guide on everything players can learn about the newest confirmed Apex Legends character, Seer.
Respawn Entertainment has been teasing a new legend for quite some time—something data miners were able to pick up on almost immediately. Seer's moth motif became the sigil image the company used to work in Easter eggs all over the trailer and, later, as part of a pre-season event still available. Even the social media accounts got involved, posting a parable of a young princess, her lover, and her promise to a cursed moth.
Here's everything we know about Seer in Apex Legends.
Apex Legends Seer: Everything We Know Ahead of Season 10
Seer is voiced by Ikechukwu "Ike" Prince Amadi (@AfricanWrdsmith), a well-known voice actor from Nigeria. Fans may recall his work as Javik in Mass Effect 3, Shao Kahn and Cyrax in Mortal Kombat 11, and Atrocitus in Infinite Crisis and Injustice 2.
Unfortunately, as far as general abilities and utility go, there is precious little out there concerning Seer. Some suspect he may be the coded legend, Pariah, but the mined abilities for Pariah involve steam—which, up to this point, we haven't noticed depicted with Seer.
Thanks to a video from garret (@GarretLeaks), we do have the icons for two of Seer's abilities. One mimics the shape of an eye surrounded by technology and the other a wide-open iris design. In the video, garret suspects this makes Seer a recon-based legend with a recon ability and an area of effect (AoE) ability.
Seer is the son of a powerful woman "bearing the mark of the moth." From the moment he entered the world, he was cursed—depicted by his unique light blue gaze. Stories of the Outlands: Metamorphosis explains that his gaze will "draw us all to the flame." Seer's sight is an immense power as those who refuse his gaze will be "undone," bringing the most powerful forces to their knees.
"Everything he touches will be changed. This, it cannot be unseen," the narrator explained.
Metamorphosis briefly shows how Seer grew up learning about technology from his father and physical strength from his mother. His father is seen gifting him a bright blue micro drone--which shifts into a moth once it flies from his hand. These drones are seen again coming from Seer's golden chest compartment with a handful of them forming the insect's outline.
Players may recognize this pattern from the Easter egg in the sky over the Apex Games, as well.
Being the "cursed" son of a woman marked by the moth could be a connection to The Moth and the Flame parable. In the story, a princess agrees to allow a moth to be reborn as her first child if it helps her find her love. The moth wants to be free of its curse—being attracted to things that only do it harm, such as fire.
Could it be that Seer's "sight," through information gleaned by his drones, is meant to show people harmful circumstances in their lives? Would uncovering them be the key to making them crumble and freeing the world? Perhaps we'll learn more when the Season 10 launch trailer debuts at the EA Play live stream on Thursday, July 22.
Another interesting side note would be the possibility that Seer is also from Gaea—like Rampart. After all, Rampart mentions him offhandedly as a friend of hers. The city Seer is born in also mirrors those found on the planet's surface as we've seen with fellow Gaea-native, Crypto.
Season 10 is clearly themed after Seer, himself, right down to its name. Like a moth emerging from it cocoon, Seer is set to dive into the Apex Games with wings outstretched once Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence launches on Aug. 3.
Its season launch trailer will be unveiled during the EA Play live stream on Thursday, July 22.
