Petrus of Thorolund

Petrus of Thorolund is a Character in Dark Souls.



Petrus is a blond Cleric who is waiting for Lady Reah of Thorolund and her two bodyguards at Firelink Shrine. He gives a Copper Coin to the player as a token of good will, offers to teach them minor miracles, sells some talismans and teaches the Shrug gesture. The player can also enter his covenant, the Way of White, by speaking to him. Joining is required to buy miracles early in the game if the player did not choose Knight or Cleric as a starting class.

After ringing the first bell of awakening and beating Capra Demon, he will be joined by his companions - Vince, Nico, and Reah of Thorolund - as they plan to set off on their secret mission into the Catacombs.

Note: if Petrus is killed before Vince, Nico, and Reah arrive, the latter three will all be hostile upon appearance.


Available upon arriving in Lordran. Encountered after heading up the stairs in Firelink Shrine towards the elevator leading to the church in the Undead Parish.

  • Talk to him a few times, and he gives you a Copper Coin as a token of good will.
  • You can also enter his covenant, the Way of White, to be able to buy Miracles from him.
    • When Reah of Thorolund arrives, and onwards, he will teach Miracles without needing to join the Covenant.
    • The Cleric and Knight class start with this covenant, and can learn Miracles without joining (though the prompt will appear anyway.)
  • You can pay him for information about their Undead Mission, it will cost you your current Soul Level x 100 souls.

After Reah and her companions arrive, they will all leave for the Catacombs after you visit a few areas, or a Quit/Reload. Visit another few more areas, or Quit/Reload again, and petrus will have returned. He is quite distraught, claiming to have lost his lady.

  • He still teaches you miracles after he returns, but is much less talkative.
  • Talk to Lautrec to learn what really happened, you must pay for this information which will cost you your current Soul Level x 100 souls.
  • Talk to Petrus again and he will also tell you the truth, that the Lady is helplessly trapped in the Tomb of Giants, and that you can do as you please with her.

If you rescue Reah from the Tomb of Giants, she will settle down in the Undead Church, and the story will advance further.

  • Talk to her in the church, and Petrus will confront you with your action of saving her, and tell you that she's "not worth her salt without her family name".
    • If you let Petrus kill you after this, he might say "Too bad for you, I'm a wolf in sheep's clothing." upon your death.
  • Ignore her, and she will be dead after you kill two or three more bosses.
    • Talk to Petrus, and he will tell you that her death is terrifying news.
    • If you choose to kill Petrus after Reah's death, he will drop the Ivory Talisman, one of Reah's belongings.

      The first time lautrec told me what happened I absolutely butt raped this bastard with a bandits knife, and if dark souls was realistic, firelink shrine would have been soaked in blood. Then I pushed lautrec off of a cliff and was on my way.

        Somehow I am starting to like this guy. For me, he is one of those npcs who stay sane no matter what, like patches and the others. Yea he is a bastard, but does it matter if he is the last man standing?

          He has such a sinister tone in his voice when he tells you reah fell down in the depths of the catacombs. He’s evil but committed to his goals nonetheless

              I tried talking to him to get the shrug gesture but I accidentally pressed R2 and agroed him. I still killed him at early sl and I don’t feel bad for killing him at all.

                Letting that miserable sanctimonious pig priest jump over the edge was the only sin I never dared to be ashamed of to commit.

                  LOOK AT THE TOP OF HIS HEAD!
                  **** Petrus
                  Fun fact
                  "Lund" is slang for ***** in Hindi so Petrus is from Thoro-*****

                    Yeah... tries to buy the Chosen Undead off as soon as he sees them, betrays his comrades and runs away like a coward, and if you happen to get Lautrec's tip he tries to play it off like his role as a traitor was anything new. Petrus, you're a fool of the highest order. And what makes it worse is the Covenant you and your "friends" are supposed to represent. You're one of the co-op/healer factions; you're supposed to be all about helping your fellow man, not abandoning them to die or go Hollow and offing them when they become an inconvenience! I enjoyed finally executing this prick. There's nothing I hate more than a traitor and a coward.

                      I wonder if i did something wrong. I cant get his "not worth her salt without her family name" dialogue to trigger, even though i saved Reah from the tomb and bought all her miracles
