Lionhead shares some details about Fable Legends hero Rook

Posted on March 17, 2014 AT 05:51am

Lionhead has shared a few details about one of Fable Legends‘ heroes over on its official blog.

In Fable Legends, instead of creating their own character, players will take control of one of a group of pre-selected characters. Rook is a veteran member of the Strangers, a group of men and women who act as an army, police force, and communications network for those travelling across or living along the edges of the Deadlands.

Rook acts as the ranged hero and makes use of a “Catsgut” repeating crossbow. He believes in honor, justice, and isn’t afraid to speak his mind. “Always direct and to the point, Rook is a man of few words (and the occasional hand gesture), but you will always know where you stand with him. You’d just better hope that’s not  standing at the wrong end of his bow,” the developer added.

Fable Legends is being developed exclusively for Xbox One using Unreal Engine 4.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
