Candle Face 1
The Fireplace has candle-man minions who will help you out as well, and serve as its eyes and ears to the world away from the fireplace. You first see a Candle when you clear the tutorial, later in the game you can see the corpses of Candles that fell in combat or were murdered by the undead. According to the Candles tab in the Vall mission, Candles are specifically ordered to never engage combat.
