Emma

The duty of being Prince Lothric’s wet nurse fell to High Priestess Emma. In her dying moments, her Japanese dialogue quickly shifts from calling him just “the Prince” to “Lothric-sama“, a respectful address which nonetheless uses his name. In other words, this loyal subject is showing a degree of intimacy when decorum no longer matters […]

The High Wall

Consider that is where we arrive when first traveling there, it is easy to assume that the High Wall simply refers to Lothric’s outer defenses. The walls we warp atop do tower high above the city, with only the castle at its center surpassing them in height. But the description for the Small Lothric Banner […]

Lothric End

Birth of a Religion When we first explore the Lothric capital, we come across a peculiar sight: lines of armor suits — Lothric Knights — each missing their heads. And patrolling around them right in the barracks plaza is the beheader: a hefty warrior wielding a weapon of absurd weight, soaked in blood. More of […]

The Eclipse

After defeating the last Lord of Cinder, we return to Lothric to discover the world experiencing a solar eclipse. Normally, this would be the result of the moon blocking the sun, casting the lunar body’s shadow upon the earth. However, the timing of its appearance and its possible later reaction to us subverting the First […]

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 Lothric Castle are consistently called “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 not noticing that they match our size at their full height. Armed mainly with slipshod hatchets, speed […]

Twin Princes

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

Lothric Bridge

Although 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 otherwise, pointing to how the causeway clearly leads to someplace on Lothric’s left rather than the city’s main gate. Indeed, while it now leads to nowhere — as […]

Oceiros

Prince Lothric was born destined to be a Lord of Cinder, but who decided this destiny for him? Making a Lothric prince 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 had brought […]

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 […]
