Apex Legends is a game full of unique weapons, mechanics, and characters and the voice actress for the tracker Bloodhound is giving fans a look behind the microphone.
Voice actress Allegra Clark posted a short video to social media showing her saying a few lines from the games technological tracker character Bloodhound. The developers added effects to the original voiceover to create how Bloodhound sounds. Clark said in the video she wanted to show everyone how the character sounded before post-production.
Since some people were curious about what Bloodhound sounds like sans post-processing! Iirc they knocked it down a half step or two, and I think that’s the pitch where I placed their voice. It’s hard to tell with the processing 😂😂 #apexlegends #bloodhound #honortheallfather pic.twitter.com/vqqGvOcGRn

The video shows Clark voicing Bloodhound’s popular catchphrases and lines in Apex Legends. She says the take used in the video is “more or less” how she sounded in the recording booth during the original take.
Clark says after getting her takes, the team at Respawn took “it down a half step or two,” in the final design.
So much love to the team at Respawn for their amazing launch, & for inviting me to help bring this hunter child to life. The battle begins—may the gods bless you.”
Searching through the comments section on the video, many fans were curious as to the origin of the accent. Clark responded by saying the voice directors wanted Bloodhound to sound ‘Old Norse’. The voice actress delved deeper into the lore behind Bloodhound saying the character is non-binary. The description on the Apex Legends says this about the tactical character.
Their identity is a mystery wrapped in layers of rumors: they are fabulously wealthy, a bloodthirsty murderer, a Goliath whisperer, a former slave, half bat, and a dozen other things depending on who’s doing the whispering.”
Clark has 10 years of training as a professional voice actress and has provided the voice for a number of characters in gaming and more. She helped bring to life Josephine Montilyet in Bioware’s Dragon Age: Inquisition.
