The Scrutinizer is an NPC located in Downtown Sanctuary during HeroRealms Month, a Hero vs. Villain themed month-long event. Both The Scrutinizer and HeroRealms Month were introduced in-game on January 14, 2014.
The character "The Scrutinizer" appears to be inspired by the Watchers from the Fantastic Four series. To scrutinize means to examine or inspect, a variation of to watch.
The Scrutinizer was first revealed publicly over Twitter by Free Realms Lead Designer Justin "Mourde" Dazet on December 18, 2013, and was featured through a teaser image on December 19, 2013.
On January 13, 2014, Free Realms Producer Steve "Shock" George posted an advertisement image featuring The Scrutinizer.
