Pit Keepers are specialist Knights seen in the Necropolis of the Scarlet Fortress, where they block access deeper into the substructure of the Keep. They are seen in the Pit of Heresy Dungeon, where they must be killed in order to open the gateways into the chambers that house the Servants of the Broken Blade.
