The Tibetan villagers are a protagonist faction that appear in the 2009 video game Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

In the game, the villagers largely act cordial to treasure-hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake and aid him in battling Zoran Lazarević's soldiers when they invade the village.


[edit] Background

The Tibetan villagers live a quiet life in a remote Tibetan village situated in the Himalayan Mountains. Among the villagers are mountaineer Tenzin and his daughter Pema, while former Nazi Karl Schäfer has also taken residence in their village.[1]

In November 2009, Tenzin rescues treasure-hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake from the wreckage of Serbian war criminal Zoran Lazarević's train and brings Nate to the village. Despite none of the villagers being able to speak English, they give Nate a warm reception, willingly shaking his hand and talking to him.[1]

Later, the villagers aid Nate and Tenzin in battling Lazarević's soldiers as the soldiers lay siege to the village in an attempt to kidnap Schäfer. The villagers battle valiantly using Crossbows and other more modern weapons, but Lazarević's forces prove too strong and Lazarević is able to kidnap Schäfer.[1]

[edit] Behind the scenes

The Tibetan villagers are first seen in the 2009 video game Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The voice work for the villagers is provided by several actors, two of which voice additional characters in the Uncharted series: Pema Dhondup also voices Tibetan mountaineer Tenzin, while Tenzing Tsering also voices the Nepali resistance fighters. Some of the voice work for the Tibetan children is provided by the children of Christopher Balestra, the co-president of the Uncharted series' developer Naughty Dog.[2][3]
