Reah of Thorolund

reah firelink

Information

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.

Encounters

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.

Drops

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

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

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

Notes

  • 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. (Source: The trigger for Reah being murdered in the Parish Church. By illusorywall)
  • Talk to Oswald of Carim after her death to figure out what happened to her.

      If I already have some of the miracles from whats his face, do I also need to buy them from her to get her to move?

        After you protect her in the Tomb of Giants, return to Petrus and kill the fat ****. Mission accomplished. Now Rhea will live forever at you side, shining upon your path with her sacred light. You can viist her anytime in the Undead Parish church.

          ...so I started NG+, became Way of the White,
          killed that serpent Patches and went straight to the Tomb of Giants.
          Got the Rite of Kindling and moved on, arrived at the place where
          they were supposedly deceived by Patches, currently dead.

          I picked the skull lantern. But there is no one there.
          No Rhea, no Vince, no Nico.

          Timeline wise, they technically haven't gone on their mission yet,
          since I accomplished for them, same clan and all?
          What the cock?

            What happens if I killed pinwheel before I killed Capra demon? Is she down in the catacombs automatically?

              I just experienced an event not listed here, first time it's happened to me since 2011. I'm doing late game things, killing fire keepers, kindling all bonfires, doing all optional bosses etc. Then I had her spawn back at firelink where she and Petrus usually are, and she immediately agroed on me. I've never had this happen, I'm currently a dark wraith 2+ and usually she just refuses to speak to me if I'm in that covenant. Had anyone else experienced this and if Soo what's the trigger? I thought it was hilarious because she had no weapons or miracles and I had a great time reposting for for 10 minutes with my bear fists lol

                "Alternatively they will leave as soon as Pinwheel in The Catacombs is defeated." Oooh that's why i never saw her in the firelink shrine...

                  Omg I'm so mad, I was talking to her in the pit-black Tombs of Giants, then 2 fking bone trees came out of no where and killed her.

                      I literally talked to rhea in undead parish. After going through Izalith she still died. I talked to her and even opened up her menu where you can buy stuff from her. I even bought her divine blessing. I even talked to petrus so it wouldn't happen immediately after I talked to her. Still died. Love this game. Best NPC's in any Dark Souls game, having fun, whoo hoo. (**** me amiright)

                          I was reading comments while standing in front of her, bumped my controller and hit her. I was in firelink btw. Anyway to fix this?

                          • I've had a bit of a strange sequence of events.
                            I killed Capra Demon before the Bell Gargoyles, and Reah appeared in Firelink.
                            I immediately went down into the Catacombs, killed Pinwheel and went into the pit to save her.
                            I found her in the Church, bought all of her miracles. On saving and reloading, she had disappeared.
                            I'm assuming that she has moved to the Duke's Archives, however dialogue with Petrus and Lautrec suggest that Reah is still in the Catacombs.

                              You must buy her miracles AND divine blessings before she will move from Undead Parish to Duke's Archive.

                                So just to clarify, there's absolutely zero advantage to letting Petrus live until she returns from the Tomb of the Giants as opposed to killing him after she gets trapped there and he returns to Firelink alone? It seems to me that all leaving him alive would do is give him the chance to kill Reah with no benefit to the Chosen Undead.

                                  After I rescue her I teleport back to the shrine.
                                  I kill Petrus so he doesnt murder her.
                                  I make sure the Channeler is dead so he doesnt kidnap her.
                                  I've actually never had her die on a playthrough. I go back and check on her regularly.
                                  Despite killing some of these bosses after saving her.
                                  Im assuming you have to actually buy all her stuff first.

                                    I'm sorry but the above mentioned trigger for Rhea to be killed is misguiding .
                                    Here are the list of bosses that I've killed before saving her in the Tomb Of The Giants :
                                    1.) Gaping Dragon
                                    2.) Bell Gargoyles
                                    3.) Great Grey Wolf Sif
                                    4.) Chaos Witch Quelaag
                                    5.) Iron Golem
                                    6.) Ornstein & Smough

                                    And here are the following that were killed after :
                                    1.) Gravelord Nito
                                    2.) The Four Kings
                                    3.) Seath The Scaleless
                                    Note those are 3 main bosses considered to be a trigger for her death . But so far none of that has occurred and she's still alive with an additional dialogue " I do not warm easily with unfamiliar faces ........" despite Petrus being still alive .

                                      For anyone on a first playthrough and trying to get replenishment, don't make my stupid mistake. Make sure you find and kill all the bone towers in the pit before you talk to her. Because otherwise their dumbasses will walk over in the middle of dialog and kill her before you get a chance to do anything. So now I've lost out on something I had my eye on for awhile and can't be gotten any where else. Sure I can get it next playthrough but what the hell man.

                                        The easiest way to keep Rhea alive is to simply kill Petrus once she moves to the Undead Parish. Anything you could buy from Petrus is sold by Rhea for less souls, and she doesn't get mad at you if you kill him.

                                          In all my playthroughs I never encountered here in the D.A.s. I did however find her armor set there, meaning she must have been there at some point, but never hollow and hostile. I thought I bought everything from her in at least the first playthrough, and definitely searched all the cells in 3 playthroughs because I have 3 sets of her armor, but never encountered her there. However, I am not sure that she ever disappeared from the church. Good info though, I was pissed as hell in my first playthrough because neff killed her before I even found out where she relocated too.

                                            Wow really? Can anyone here read and understand English? Actually read and "try" to understand simple words... "ONCE RESCUED FROM THE TOMB OF THE 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." Oh btw this definition might help you guys... "After - preposition : following in time, place, or order. - Examples : 1 - Let's go for a walk after breakfast. 2 - Some people believe in life after death."

                                              You can save Reah even if you have taken too long to go save her in the Catacombs; just do not go to the Undead Parish before killing Petrus once you finally save Reah.

I really would have liked ensuring Reah, and some of the other npcs, stayed safe. (then again, I guess our character does have their own problems to deal with, so maybe it makes sense you cannot save many of them in the end... I think almost I cried a bit as I wrote this)

I rescued her from the tomb of giants , bought all of her miracles when I found her in the church , Petrus still won't complain and is still selling me his stuff , Reah won't move to the archives. I even tried doing the DLC bosses and areas right after buying Reah's things but nothing changes . Fun .

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?

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.

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'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...

                                                                                  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.

                                                                                      • Anonymous
