Who is Teaks in Sea of Stars?

Teaks is an NPC character who joins the player’s party in the early stages of the game. They are a traveling historian who explores the world searching for artifacts, knowledge, and stories of the world of Sea of Stars.

They join the party as Cargo, which are companions that do not engage in combat or level up alongside the main party but are still part of your group and an important part of the game.

During player’s adventures, they will come across special items called Artifacts, which they can give to Teaks when resting at a campfire or aboard the Vespertine, and doing so will unlock stories. These stories add lore and context to the world and make it richer, like explaining certain characters’ origins or detailing an important lore event.
