Disco Elysium Wiki

Shanky is a character in Disco Elysium.


Shanky, real name Dennis, 46, is a small rat-like man with dark eyes and a mean face. He's been described by people who know him as a mean and cunning guy. Not someone you would get along with. By his account a former featherweight amateur boxer. The kind of guy who always used to pick a fight with big guys who can't fight. Now he carries a shank and sticks people with it. Childless, divorced and hated by most people who know him personally.


  • He is encountered on day 2 at the Whirling-In-Rags Union cafeteria. During the Mercenary Tribunal, he either dies or runs away after mentioning the Wild Pines rep - and later dies when the Hardie boys (or what remains of them) catch up with him.
