Olaphis

Magic Kingdom The Lost Bastille is home to a number of prisoners, but none are more chatty than Straid, a sorcerer from the ruined nation of Olaphis. Although now a “forgotten prison”, (忘却の牢) this facility was once a castle, apparently the seat of government for this land. Based on Straid’s dialogue, this government was the […]

Lothric First Scholar

The first scholar of Lothric is mentioned in only one item description, but this one reference is all we need to confirm his identity. Soul Stream is a peculiar sorcery to acquire at the Grand Archives. That is because this “Soul Torrent” (ソウルの奔流) is the same name used for Soul Geyser from Dark Souls II. […]

Lothric Slaves

The slaves kept by the Kingdom of Lothric are consistently said to be “trifling”, (卑小) a lowly bunch keeping their scrawny forms close to the ground below the notice of their masters; with how they comport themselves, you would be forgiven for thinking them smaller than they actually are, the size of the average man […]

Twin Princes

The name “Twin Princes” (双王子) doesn’t necessarily indicate that Lothric’s royal brothers are actual twins versus just magically paired together through their curse, but it would explain their surprisingly close bond despite living completely different lives — twins are known for such extraordinary relationships, at least in fiction. Either way, Lorian is still the elder […]

Pus of Man

The description for the Follower Torch notes the historical use of fire to combat a “pus” manifestation of the Abyss within man. Indeed, the Dark of humanity has produced a viscous substance akin to pus in past games, and flame has always been the means to drive away darkness. However, we have never before seen […]

Aquamarine Dagger

The Aquamarine Dagger is a curious weapon to acquire in the Dreg Heap. It has been fitted with a crystal imbued with magic power, which it can unleash and then crystallize as a sort of blade extension from short sword to long sword. The dagger’s description also suggests that it was a parting gift since […]

Midir

Born a later generation of archdragon, Midir had the most peculiar upbringing for his kind. Rather than be hunted like the rest, he was raised by the gods of Anor Londo, which explains why he bears name of Celtic origin like so many of them. And not just any of those gods either. Old Moonlight […]

Lothric Bridge

While it is generally accepted that the massive bridge spanning the space between Lothric and the Undead Settlement was built to connect the two, some have argued that this is not actually the case, as it clearly leads to someplace left of Lothric rather than the city’s main gate. Indeed, while it now leads to […]

Oceiros

Prince Lothric was born destined to be a Lord of Cinder, but who decided this destiny for him? Making a prince of the kingdom a King of Kindling is called the work of Lothric’s blood as well as the royalty’s dearest wish, and the head of the royalty is King Oceiros. In that case, he […]

Crystal Sages

The Crystal Sages are a curious pair of twins, possibly fraternal twins in particular. Although their faces and body types are obscured, the Sage encountered in Farron is bald while the one encountered at the Grand Archives has long brown hair, potentially hinting that the former is male while the latter is female. Regardless, the […]
