The Henchmen are strange warriors and minions of Lucreto created from evil-fluids that ran through the cauldron in Temple of the Sun in the Realm of the Sun. They are creatures of darkness. Lucreto sent out his children of Darkness forth in search of the lost fragments of the Mask of Eternity, and to kill Connor. They were strong and well armored, and are immune to ranged attacks (to which they just laugh). They tried to kill Connor, and take the Mask pieces back to Lucreto, their master, but were defeated every time. Connor saw a vision of the henchmen being sent after him in the Swamp Witch's cauldron. He fought four that were sent after him, and several more in the Temple of the Sun, and even witnessed one being created in the cauldron before he purified it.
The First HenchmanEditAs Connor was exiting the windmill in Daventry town after picking up the axe, spears came from the sky and surrounded him. Connor tried to pick up one of the spears but it pulled away from him, and each spear combined together becoming the form of the first Henchman. It tried to stop Conner, calling him a usurper and to hand over the piece of Mask of Eternity he had in his possession. Connor slew the despicable varmint and wondered whence it came from.
The Second HenchmanEditWhen Connor retrieved the second piece of the Mask of Eternity from a chest in the Witch's Tower he encountered Lucreto's second henchmen. The henchman appeared behind Connor and told him to hand over the mask piece as it belonged to his master. Connor told the blackguard to take it from him. He attacked the henchman, cut off his hand and knocked him over the side of the bridge leading to one of Tower's side spires. After defeating him he obtained the henchman's Severed Hand.
The Third HenchmanEdit
While invading the lair of the fire dwarves whilst in the barren land, Conner opened up a chest to find the third piece of the Mask of Eternity. While doing so however, a Henchman seeped through the ceiling behind him, then reformed. After this he said that the mask piece belonged to Lucreto. Conner still defeated the dark being after which the Henchman collapsed into goop.
The Fourth HenchmanEdit
Within the Frost orc's citadel, Conner opened a chest that was behind a gate with a frozen Henchman beside it. Being cautious still, he hit it hard enough to shatter it into many shards before opening the chest. Even still, the Henchman regenerated back into how it originally was and fought Connor for the piece of the Mask of Eternity inside, he said that the mask belonged to his master and that it will not aid Connor, Connor said it would not aid him either. When Conner defeated this Henchman, it froze over and shattered in death.
