Reah of Thorolund


Reah of Thorolund, the youngest daughter of the House of Thorolund, is a maiden on a mission, and will appear after defeating the Capra Demon. She is accompanied by her two former classmates, the clerics Vince and Nico, and can be found praying beside Petrus of Thorolund in Firelink Shrine.
She will tell that they are on a mission, but never reveals what the mission is all about. Speaking to Petrus of Thorolund (talk option) he will ask you if you want to know the mission of the undead. If you pay him for the information (level x 100 souls), he will tell you:

"Undead clerics are given a mission to seek Kindling. Kindling is the art of feeding bonfires with humanity. Through Kindling, we shall one day be granted magnificent powers."

Talking with Griggs of Vinheim, before she leaves, will reveal that she is actually after the flame of kindling.


Locations Events
Firelink Shrine Appears next to Petrus of Thorolund, along with her two escorts Vince and Nico, after defeating the Capra Demon. She will tell you that they are on a mission, but never reveals what the mission actually is.
  • After talking to Petrus they will all leave for The Catacombs, the next time you exit the area.
  • Alternatively they will leave as soon as Pinwheel in The Catacombs is defeated.
  • The next time you return to Firelink Shrine, Petrus will have returned, saying "He failed to protect her".
Tomb of Giants She is found in the pit that Patches the Hyena kicks you into. She has also been fooled by Patches the Hyena, and is stuck in the hole along with her two bodyguards who have turned hollow.
  • Upon speaking to her again, once you have defeated her two hollow bodyguards, she will give you the miracle Replenishment.
Undead Parish Once rescued from the Tomb of Giants, she will relocate and sell advanced miracles, at the altar in the Undead Church (where you found the Fire Keeper Soul). There are two outcomes after being saved from Tomb of Giants.
  1. If you take too long to visit her, after Tomb of Giants (exploring 2 or more areas and killing bosses), Petrus will kill her. She will drop 7 humanities along with a Pendant at her location in Undead Parish. (Update: Reah will be at the altar for the 2 areas and bosses ONLY.)
  2. After buying all her miracles, she will eventually leave the Undead Parish and head to the Duke's Archives, escaping her grisly fate.
The Duke's Archives After disappearing she will reappear in a cell, a couple flights of stairs down from where you re-spawned after dying to Seath the Scaleless.
  • She has gone hollow, and will attack, but is mostly harmless. Drops the Ivory Talisman and 7 humanities when killed.

Reah will drop different items depending on how or where she dies:

Firelink Shrine

Tomb of Giants

  • 7 Humanity
  • Ivory Talisman

Undead Parish

If you kill her:

  • 7 Humanity
  • Ivory Talisman

If Petrus kills her:

The Duke's Archives

  • 7 Humanity
  • Ivory Talisman

You can also drain her for 12 humanity using the Dark Hand, before she goes hollow.


  • If you kill Patches in The Catacombs, before Reah and company goes down there, the outcome will be the same for them. The only difference is that she will not mention Patches when she tells you what happened.
  • If you kill Nito, Patches will move to Firelink Shrine. If you do this before she leaves for the Catacombs, Patches will re-appear in the Tomb of Giants if you go down to see her.
  • If you kill Petrus before Reah and company arrives, they will be hostile towards you when they arrive. Absolving your sins wil not revert this. Reah will still go to the Tomb of Giants, but she'll just be sitting there without talking, and her bodyguards will be gone. (unconfirmed)
  • If you attack Reah in the Tomb of Giants or Undead Church, she will stay in that location until you absolve your sins. She will only fight back if you attack her in Firelink Shrine, and also in Duke's Archives after she hollows.
  • After freeing Rhea from the Tomb of the Giants, killing 2 of any of the following bosses results in her death. Note that they must be killed after rescuing her, it doesn't count if you killed them beforehand: The Gaping Dragon, Bell Gargoyles, Priscilla, Sif, Nito, Quelaag, The Bed of Chaos, Iron Golem, Ornstein and Smough, The Four Kings and Seath.

      The "quest" steps are EXTREMELY MISLEADING. It's not "if you take too long to visit her". You'd better get all her miracles before you kill two of the bosses in the later list, because whether you visited her or not she will be dead.

          I’m a little lost. I already beat pinwheel and Petrus is now saying he can’t find his lady after I came back from beating lower undead burg and the depths. What should I do now? Incidentally I already killed laurek and the crestfallen Warrior.

            If you want to completely save Rhea you need to rescue her from the crypt, kill off that sucker Petrus of Thorolund, and then just make sure you don't buy all of her miracles. I recommend buying Homeward from Petrus since you really only ever need one copy of that spell anyway, and then simply not buying it from Rhea. You don't really get anything from doing this, except the satisfaction of cheesing death away from a game that likes to kill every single person you meet.

              I did buy all of her miracles and articles after freeing her from the tomb of the giants but she never left undead parish and eventually got killed by petrus.. I didn't kill nito so i guess that's the reason

                will Petrus still kill Reah when you dont kill Nito? i am asking this because i didnt kill Nito and Petrus only said that he is happy that you rescued her. shouldnt he say something like she is nothing worth?

                  I remember in the original ps3 version if you attacked Reah with a weapon (not killing her) in the Tomb of the Giants after killing the 2 hollows, she had dialogue. Does anyone remember what it was? I can't find it anywhere online. She said something like "I deserve your actions, you have every right to be angry with me" .. or something like that. Does anyone know or remember???

                    I accidentally aggroed Bowlcut at the start of the game, had to kill him, came back later and killed his two mates, but instead of killing Reah, I realized all she can do is 1-HP punches (and also 1-HP "back stabs"), so I just kind of kept her as an attraction. I'd be in the middle of talking with Griggs, and suddenly I'd explode in a fountain of blood as she pummeled my spine, yet still be totally unharmed, and Griggs would keep chatting with me as if nothing happened. That is, until she tried to run away from me and fell off a cliff...

                      The info about attacking Rhea in Tomb of Giants is NOT TRUE, at least in DSR. I accidentally swiped her once with my weapon while fighting her bodyguards, and she started attacking me.

                        i feel sorry for her. her voice is miserably cute... a weak innocent personality that has been domainated by religion

                          Is her gesture missable? I was never given the option to learn it when she was in Firelink Shrine.

                          I haven't haven't come across her in the Tomb of Giants yet.

                            Well, was trying out a faith build. Found Rhea in the Catacombs, acidentaly hit her while fighting her Bodyguards, she runs away. Well, crap i think, but i can still get my Sins pardoned. Then she jumps off the cliff.
                            Nice feeling.

                              So I thought that by visiting her before exploring further or killing bosses that I would have triggered saving her, but apparently Petrus just murders her anyways. You HAVE to buy all her miracles before exploring and killing more bosses or else Petrus just kills her anyways.
