Laurentius of the Great Swamp is a Character in Dark Souls
He is a Pyromancy trainer rescued from The Depths. Was apparently being held captive by an undead chef.
- To find him, enter the Depths through the iron door unlocked with the Key to Depths right after Capra Demon. Go down the stairs until you reach the area with the hollows and tables, and drop down through the archways, then follow the hallways until you reach the area with the Butcher who is waiting on an elevated platform; if you reach a closed wooden door, go the other way. Kill him, and move into the room full of barrels. He is in a barrel in the corner when you find him. It is recommend to roll through the barrels to free him, since this will not cause him to become aggressive.
- After being rescued Laurentius can be found by taking the first stairway up from Firelink Shrine and turning left, he will be sitting on the ground.
- If you hadn't chosen Pyromancer at the start, he will give you a Pyromancy Flame and offer to teach you pyromancies. He can also upgrade the flame using souls.
