Charon's Obol is one of several currencies that can be earned within the underworld. They can then be used in Charon's shop or at a Well of Charon to purchase various items. All obols are lost on death.

Codex Entry[edit | edit source]

Codex.png '...The Underworld is best known as the domain of death, but it is also the domain of countless wealth and riches, sent into the River Styx along with the deceased. Here the purpose of such coin is mostly symbolic; but there are those who value it in a manner more traditional, especially the boatman, Charon. His need of coin cannot be fully understood. He hoards the wealth, perhaps to build for himself increasingly superior river-fairing craft. Fates only know what else.'

Obtaining Obols[edit | edit source]

Obols can be received as a room clear reward, or found inside special golden destructible items scattered throughout the various chambers.

Investing Darkness in the Deep Pockets upgrade at the Mirror of Night allows Zagreus to begin a run with up to 100 Obols, and the Chthonic Coin Purse can be equipped before or during a run to receive Obols depending on the upgrade level of the keepsake.
