The Mentor serves as the series' narrator and helpfully announces important information—such as creature status and level events—to the player. In Dungeon Keeper, he is represented by a demonic, disembodied voice. The character would later return in Dungeon Keeper 2 to serve as the game's mentor.

The English version of the Mentor is voiced by Richard Ridings, though this evidently wasn't always the case as the Dungeon Keeper Goodies Disc contains cut female Mentor voices.

Classical Latin versionEdit

In 2010, GodmyX, a devoted fan of Dungeon Keeper, transcribed all of the Mentor's English voice lines into classical Latin, and released a patch that would implement the Latin voice lines into the game. He had been inspired by the medieval Gregorian choir, which can be heard in the intro, as well as by the Pseudo-Latin names of the spells. He adopted the Latin pronunciation that was commonly used in Central Europe during the Middle Ages.
