Vinheim is land of sorceries and the home of Vinheim Dragon School, mentioned in Dark Souls and Dark Souls III. Those from Vinheim tend to be scholarly and are sometimes scorned for it. In Dark Souls player will come across a few characters, namely: Griggs of Vinheim, Rickert of Vinheim and Big Hat Logan.
In Dark Souls III only one unambiguously linked to Vinheim is Orbeck of Vinheim, but this land is also mentioned in few items descriptions, e.g. Young Dragon Ring is given to newly ordained sorcerers.
