Shadow of Chernobyl



Monolith Patch Monolith


Charon (Харон) is the leader of the Monolith faction during the events of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.


Shadow of ChernobylEdit

Charon can only be found within the Palace of Culture in Pripyat. While he is armed with an Exoskeleton and a Vintar BC, he is an easy fight, since for some reason he only fires his Vintorez in semi-automatic bursts. He also chooses to rely on his USP Compact in close quarters. However, he is almost always found with a retinue of Monolith experts protecting him.

The rewards for killing him are unfortunately minimal - ammunition for his weapon, as well as medkits, though he drops substantially more than the average stalker. He is usually found in the basement of the Monolith's HQ. However, Charon is located under the Monolith "sculpture", which has several nice artifacts surrounding it, such as several Night Star artifacts, a Spring, a Kolobok, and after midnight, a Moonlight artifact.


A short bio, that was omitted from final version of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl game describes him as follows: [1]

Regular stalker from the Monolith grouping. No details available.


  • In Greek Mythology Charon is the name of a Hades' ferryman whose purpose is to convey the souls of the dead across the River Acheron, a segment of the River Styx, the boundary of the Earth from the Greek Underworld.
  • Perhaps, as mentioned above, the name may have been chosen to symbolise Stalkers passing over to the Monolith.
  • Unlike other leaders Charon has no interaction with the player aside from combat, and can actually be entirely avoided.
  • Like Scar, Charon wields a Vintar BC as his preferred weapon. Whether this hints at a further connection cannot be said, however.
