The Empowered Scholar is a respawnable boss encountered in Guns, Love, and Tentacles DLC for Borderlands 3. A high-ranking member of the Bonded, recently empowered by Eleanor, he was dispatched to the Dustbound Archives to stop the Vault Hunter.


Recently appointed by Eleanor, leader of the Bonded, he was called upon by his master to kill the Vault Hunter, who was searching for a lead on how to remove the cursed ring of Vincent from Wainwright Jakobs in the Dustbound Archives. He confronted the Vault Hunter just before they could investigate the founder's office.
