How to recruit Ochlys in Unicorn Overlord

Ooo, heaven is a place on Cornia.

Though it’ll be a while before you directly deal with the more angelic characters of Unicorn Overlord, you can recruit one specific fighter quite early on. Ochlys is a Feathersword, a Flying-type unit with some excellent mobility. You’ll need to gather some shards to recruit her first, though.

Where to start The Winged Knight

First, to even meet Ochlys, you’ll need to head to Treyes Village to start The Winged Knight side quest. You can take the path south from Thulust Harbor and head east at the fork, past Fort Mainteneaut, to find the battle.

After speaking with Ochlys, you’ll need to help her reclaim Rondmort Church from some local bandits, whose forces you might remember. It’s an Enemy Level 4 fight, which shouldn’t be too tough.

Should you spare or kill Mandrin?

After the fight, Ochlys will want to execute Mandrin for taking over the church and holding its cleric Sharon hostage. No matter what you decide here, it won’t lock you out of recruiting Ochlys. I chose to have Mandrin executed, just to be sure, but I’ve seen reports from other players that indicate the decision here won’t affect whether you can recruit Ochlys.

Once the fight has concluded, you’ll recruit Sharon, who’s a core party member for the cemeteries side quest. But you’ll need to go a step further to get Ochlys. You’ll need to bring her a lot of Divine Shards.

Collecting Divine Shards

The knight Ochlys has been tasked with collecting shards, and she won’t be able to run off to battle alongside the Liberation forces until you’ve brought her enough. She’ll open up shop around Cornia, where you’ll be able to turn in Divine Shards for various items.

Divine Shards can be found as glittering, shimmering spots on the overworld map, so just keep your eyes peeled as you explore. I recommend just being patient and exploring Cornia as much as possible. You’ll need 30 Divine Shards in total to finish Ochlys’ personal quest, An Angel’s Request, and you’ll need to spend them buying some good stuff in the shop. I suggest the AP and PP increasing amulets, as they’re pretty helpful accessories to hold early on.

Once you’ve spent enough in the shop, Ochlys will confirm she’s gathered enough shards and can now march out with the Liberation Army. You’ll get a Carnelian Pendant, Lapis Pendant, 1000G in War Funds, and 40 Renown for your efforts, alongside a new Featherwing in your army. Not a bad deal for a little collecting.
