|“||My end is near. The devils hunt for me in the darkness. The gold of El Dorado bears a terrible curse. The Spaniards have unleashed hell, and become as demons. My men have all been murdered, leaving the task to me alone. No ship will depart this island. I destroyed them all. Drowned the cursed city. A thing of such great evil must never leave these shores. In my final hour, I commend my soul to God. May he have mercy on this unholy place.||„|
|~ Sir Francis Drake's last testament as he describes the curse of the El Dorado and the Descendants.|
Descendants are major antagonists in the 2007 action-adventure video game Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. They are a breed of feral demonic monsters that were formerly human before coming into contact with the El Dorado statue.
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
They make their first full appearance when they attack and kill Eddy Raja and attempt to kill Nathan Drake and Elena Fisher. Drake had found out that they were Spaniards who were cursed by the treasure, so he had to stop the statue from leaving the island like Sir Francis Drake did. Gabriel Roman was oblivious to the curse and persuaded by Atoq Navarro to open the statue, which was revealed to be a sarcophagus with a body inside. They all then witness the body give off viral spores that transform Roman into a Descendant before being killed by Navarro, who secretly knew of its power all along. Just as Navarro took off with the statue to his ship, Descendants arrived and slaughtered the mercenaries. In the climax, Drake was able to stop and kill Navarro by sending him and the statue to the bottom of the sea.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
In "Chapter 6 - Desperate Times", Drake muttered, "Great, power's out, and a girl's trapped. I swear to God, if there's a zombie around the next corner..." This could be referring to the time that he had to get the power back on for Elena to get out, while fighting Descendants on the way from and back to the generator.
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
Right before "Chapter 10 - Historical Research" begins, Elena mentions something about, "cursed treasure", which could be another reference to the Descendants. Also in multiplayer, when patch 1.13 was released, a Descendant Mask was available for both the Custom Hero and Villain by completing the Decorative Pendants treasure set.
Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale
Descendants also appear during Drake's level 3 super in Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale.
