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 […]

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 […]

Lothric Pillars

Strength of a Knight Lothric’s royal government is divided into three “Pillars” which have supported the monarchy since the kingdom’s foundation. Of these, the Knight is the most conventional. Encased in fairly standard armor, Lothric knights serve their lord with distinction, wearing the royalty’s crest on their standard shield and surcoat as part of that […]

Gundyr

Gundyr wears “very” old cast-iron armor, with the helmet being made to resemble the face of a king wearing his crown. Although this look is an obvious reference to Old King Doran from Demon’s Souls, it nevertheless implies that Gundyr himself is a king — any warrior of lesser status would be dangerously disrespecting the […]

Lothric Beginning

Flash of Light We encounter the Dragonslayer Armour on the bridge linking Lothric Castle to its Grand Archives, specifically just after passing through sections dominated by soldiers and knights. This suggests that the boss is army property, and the melted iron armor’s chief purpose supports this. The Dragonslayer Greataxe and Greatshield “slightly revive” their one-time […]

Gwynevere

Despite her rather prominent presence in the Boreal Valley, Gwynevere is noticeably absent from the record for the rise and subsequent tyranny of Pontiff Sulyvahn. There is no mention of the goddess being confined to the Anor Londo cathedral like Gwyndolin, and her old chair there remains empty. Neither is there reference to her being […]
