MORELL, THE CRYPTOZOOLOGIST – Do you know what the success rate in pharmacological research is? 0.000003% of bio-reactive agents have reproducibly beneficial effects. Yet science persists in the search for medicine. *As* we persist in our search for new species.

Morell, the Cryptozoologist is a character in Disco Elysium.

Background[ | ]

One of the foremost cryptozoologists on the face of Elysium, Morell has traveled across the isolas in search of cryptids, from the derelict regions of Revachol to the monsoon-drenched jungles of South Safre. He is a distinguished member of the Cryptozoological Society of Chemnie (which has 4082 entries on its list of cryptids, 2000 confirmed to be hoaxes), yet has never actually encountered a single cryptid in his long life - and hopes to discover one, to give his life meaning.

He married Lena in '45, and the two have been inseparable ever since (aside from Morell's field expeditions where her wheelchair wouldn't fit). In '51, they are searching for the Insulindian Phasmid, together with Gary, the Cryptofascist, who is their close friend and provides them with a place to stay. Lena provides support in gathering information and preparing cryptid traps.

Interactions[ | ]

  • Morell can be found at Land's End, northwest of the Feld building, starting on Day 3. Once Harry's convinced him to go back to his wife, Morell will move to the Whirling-in-Rags.
  • Morell is the target of the Find Morell, the Cryptozoologist task, which is available starting with Day 2, but can only be completed on Day 3 at the earliest. Once encountered, he can be convinced to go back to the Whirling, but only if you agree to inspect the traps.
