    Chthonic Companion's are required through the same method as Keepsakes, but become available when your relationship with specific characters grow to a larger level and by gifting them Ambrosia instead of Nectar. When you give Nectar to a character, their relationship grows and on the first exchange you will receive their keepsake.

    As you progress in your runs, make sure you talk to each character every chance you get and when you have nectar available, give it to them as a gift to boost their relationship status. Eventually in the codex, you'll see their status shows a heart with a Keyhole. If you have Ambrosia (which is mainly unlocked during runs on the Elysium boss fight and through fulfilling prophecies), you will be given the option to gift it to them. A unique dialogue will play indicating that the characters have grown extremely close and you will be rewarded with their Chthonic Companion.

    The list of Characters this is possible with is:

    Companions themselves are like Summons. They each offer a different ability you can call upon during a run. You start out with only being able to use them once per run but with added upgrading at the Display Case in the Courtyard, you'll be able to use them multiple times throughout each run.

    BREN XVIII have Skelly up to the point of the locked heart after gifting, but unable to give him an Ambrosia even though I have plenty, anyone know how to gift?

    iagoYou might have to talk to him more. The option for giving Charon Ambroisia only popped up for me after I had some more Talks with him even though I had maxed out hearts with him.

    BeefalumpYep, I believe if the option isn't immediately available when you hit the locked heart, it may take a few more runs and times talking with the character. Eventually you will be given the option.

    BB rockerBren, I did the same thing. Looked at the other guide for ALL pets and for skelly you need 4+ non-zagreus weapon aspects unlocked and have used a maxed out Zagreus sword on skelly.

    xZHCxAnyone else have problems with this achievement popping? I've unlocked and equipped Skelly's rib and summoned in combat but still hasn't popped...

    Finraziel42This game has issues with achievements after it has been suspended. Make sure you quit to menu and then kill the game (use Xbox button to open the guide menu, move to game, hit menu button, quit) every time you stop playing (or before you play again). Usually any achievements you missed should also pop then once you load into the game again...

    TotalFarkCan someone EL5 how to do this with Achilles? He is stuck at the locked heart and I have Ambrosia. I even unlocked the weapon aspect he gives me Varatha GaunYu. I have beaten the game many, many times and the option has never come up.

    BeefalumpFark, IIRC Achilles could be tied to his friend in Elysium (cant remember his name), you may have to keep doing runs and talking with him to complete his quest. Some of these can be tied to side quests achieved through dialogue. I did all of these when the game came out on switch but it completely slipped my mind when writing this months later when it came out on Xbox. Hope that helps!
