In order to unlock the Mercenary, you’ll have to find a Celestial Portal which can be a little tricky to locate. The Celestial Portal appears to spawn randomly.

According to some reports, on a flawless run of the entire game, you might get a chance to see one.

Try to finish your runs and hope to come across one. Compared to its counterpart, the Celestial Portal appears white. If you are lucky enough to find one, enter it to find the Obelisk.

Getting to Obelisk requires you to “clear a parkour”. Get through the parkour and sacrifice yourself at the Obelisk. Upon sacrificing yourself, your run will end and you’ll be rewarded two things – Mercenary and “True Respite” Achievement.
