Lurien the Watcher Information
Lurien the Watcher, who resides at the top of Watcher's Spire in the City of Tears, is the most loyal Dreamer to the Pale King. He is extremely wise and brilliant, and his title of "The Watcher" was given to him as he constantly watches over the City Of Tears though his telescope at the top of his spire. He is guarded by Watcher Knights, large armored beetles who were his servants before they became Infected. At the top of the Spire, Lurien’s devoted butler, shown to be a Cowardly Husk, remains guarding him, watching over his bed as he sleeps (though not much is known about the butler aside from Lurien mentioning him in his journal, which can be found and read in a hidden nook in the Spire). It is unclear how Lurien volunteered to become a Dreamer, but he shows a great admiration for the Pale King, and had a mutual friendship with him.

Notes & Tips
- Lurien’s insectoid species is unknown. He is the most enigmatic of the Dreamers, but the most loyal to the Pale King and Hallownest. His body shape, seen partly beneath his robes, is oddly reminiscent to that of a Kingsmould.
- You can find and read some of Lurien’s writings in a journal within a hidden nook at the top of the Watcher’s Spire.
- Lurien’s devoted butler, a timid Cowardly Husk (also mentioned in Lurien’s journal), still watches over him in his resting place in the Spire. The butler appears to be Infected due to his glowing eyes, but he is not hostile, and immediately runs away from the Knight. He remains there even after Lurien has been defeated.

Lurien is my favourite Dreamer. Definitely the *best* Dreamer, so mysterious (and possibly a Void-based insectoid?)
I love his role as a wise, brilliant, and noble spiritual guardian, and his utmost devotion to PK and Hallownest - but there is so little information about him, it is quite frustrating. He deserves a much bigger role - TC barely touched on him... Disappointing...
Also, very sad for his butler, the Cowardly Husk still watching over him as he sleeps at the top of the Spire... I keep the poor little butler alive so he will be healed from the Infection like Myla...
Lurien was definitely a void construct made by the king
Probably one of the first void constructs created. I think that this make perfect sense
Lurien was always curious about life and things that's why he was known as Lurien the Watcher. He was made by the king, The king decided to give him a tower, and when no one would volunteer to be a dreamer he used a thing that would listen to his every command like a void construct, Lurien the watcher
Just killed Lurien, he was my second Dreamer. Now onto the Beast and I'm done with those 3
