Sworn Protector is an unlockable passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth.

Effects[ | ]

  • Spawns an orbital familiar that blocks enemy shots and deals 7 damage per tick or 105 damage per second on contact ((in Repentance) 53 damage per second).
    • It also attracts enemy shots to itself, making them more likely to be blocked. A shot actively being attracted can no longer damage Isaac and is essentially nullified, but if it slips outside the Protector's range, it can again deal damage.
  • Sworn Protector has a chance to drop an Eternal HeartEternal Heart upon blocking 10 shots in one room.
    • This can only happen once per room, but leaving and re-entering a room will allow another eternal heart to be dropped.
  • (except in Repentance) This item belongs to the SeraphimSeraphim set. Collecting three items from this set will transform Isaac into an angel.
  • (in Repentance) This item belongs to the ConjoinedConjoined set. Collecting three items from this set will transform Isaac into a three-faced version of himself.
