An Ally is a type of Asset or Unique Asset the player may acquire during a game of Eldritch Horror. These are people who join with the investigator when they are acquired. Where items often grant situational bonuses (such as +4 during combat) allies tend to grant smaller bonuses that are always in effect (such as +1).
Some allies in the unique asset deck have the Character trait. They represent specific, named individuals. While the investigators in Eldritch Horror were created by Fantasy Flight, character allies are generally named after individuals from H.P. Lovecraft's stories.
Leo Anderson can easily gain allies from the reserve or discard pile with his investigator action. The Rise of the Elder Things Ancient One can allow players to gain allies quickly, as the player can gain a random ally if they pass the test when fighting one of their Cultists. The Serpent Crown Mystery requires players to sacrifice allies. Some effects, particularly when Syzygy is the Ancient One, trigger when the player has more Allies.
