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.

  • You can pay him for information about their Undead Mission, it will cost you your current Soul Level x 100 souls.

  • 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.
