Åke, known as Buster in the game, can be found in the same location - in a basement room adjacent to the Main Courtyard which can be reached from a door immediately to the right of the East Wing entrance door. Åke will be in a cage guarded by two gypsy henchmen with scythes and one with a flintlock pistol (who seem to be preparing to cook him). Although you can reach Åke as soon as the game begins, you won't be able to free him until you find the key to his cage. You'll receive Åke's cage key after rescuing Aunt Sophie from the East Wing's first boss. Unlike your relatives, there is no time limit on freeing Åke, since he's not a scheduled sacrifice. After the player has freed him, Åke will follow you wherever you go, just like one of your relatives. Unlike your relatives, Åke is actually pretty handy in a fight and will attack any enemies that appear while he's traveling with you. Also, since enemies tend to concentrate on attacking you and will usually ignore Åke, you don't have to worry too much about him getting killed. He's got the same amount of health as any other relative, so he can survive a decent amount of damage. Åke's biting attacks aren't quite as powerful as the punching attacks of Greg or Wilfred, but they still do a lot of damage and kill most enemies in three to five hits. Åke's attacks can also stun an enemy for a second or two.
Åke is more powerful than most enemies in the game, so he should be able to handle himself if you accidentally leave him alone in a room with a couple monsters. Just don't make a habit of it, because he CAN die.
Åke's reasonably quick, but it can slow you down a little to constantly be checking if Åke is following you. You may want to drop him off in the Main Courtyard whenever you don't need his help. Unlike your relatives, Åke won't die if you just leave him in the Main Courtyard. Instead, he'll simply appear near his dog-house in the Main Courtyard, where you can pick him up again. Just don't leave him alone inside the castle itself, because he can die that way. PewDiePie considers Åke to be a faithful companion, usually being saddened whenever Åke gets lost. Although, PewDiePie will call him a stupid dog if he does something very dim, such as not attacking a monster or not following him.
