Hermit is a major character appearing in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

A travelling salesman.
- PDA contact biography


  • According to the briefing from Deedee, Hermit is a former colleague.
  • He is alluded to by the Snitch as a reclusive scientist on Countryside. Since there is only one other person apart from Bandits and Military, this could very well be that person...


  • Hermit resides in the otherwise abandoned church near the eastern Bandit village in Countryside.
  • In keeping with design protocol, the church is of course, mined.
  • As part of the storyline mission to Find another way into the underground., the player has the option to accept or decline his offer to assist in finding the path there.
  • Due to his lack of experience and underwhelming armament, if he does help he will frequently meet his end.
  • He also provides half of the information to a secret stash - but not the location - provided that the player has paid the Snitch for this nugget in advance.

Side missionsEdit

Due to his reclusive nature he may be unwilling to talk. Making a game save in his location and immediately reloading the save seems to 'cure' this behaviour.


  • He has the appearance of Nimble in the released game.
  • He is a member of the Loners, whether or not he was formerly a scientist.
  • The biography "info" is probably a nod to his clone's appearances and functions in the other S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games (his appearance in Clear Sky).
