Patches never lost heart, and never looked back. He marched in one direction, and that direction was dead ahead. Did you see him passing by?

— Description of Patches' Ashes


Found in Firelink Shrine after meeting him for the first time in Cathedral of the Deep.

General Information

A merchant after moving to Firelink Shrine.

Always exhaust the dialogue of Patches to ensure he moves onto each stage of his storyline.

  • You first meet Patches in the Cathedral of the Deep, where he is disguised as Siegward of Catarina. He will trick you into crossing the bridge which he then lowers into the giant's pit. If you meet him on the other side of the bridge (through the route to Rosaria, Mother of Rebirth) he will apologize for tricking you and teach you the Prostration gesture. Should you reach the rafters high up inside the cathedral before meeting Patches, he will move to Firelink Shrine right away.
  • You next encounter him in the tower behind Firelink Shrine, accessed via the Tower Key. He will lock the door behind you after you enter, forcing you to either head down the tower by falling onto the protruding coffins or to warp out with the Darksign or a Homeward Bone. This can occur without having met him in the Cathedral of the Deep.
  • Returning to Firelink Shrine, he will act as a merchant, apologizing again for tricking you. If you cannot find him in the previous two locations, he will be here. Talking to him will let you either forgive him or not. Don't forgive him to get a Rusted Gold Coin and to learn the Prostration gesture if it wasn't learned before.
  • If you miss both of the first two encounters, Patches will still show up as a merchant in Firelink Shrine after you beat the Abyss Watchers.
  • After Greirat of the Undead Settlement leaves on his second scavenger outing, Patches will stop selling you items and demand to know where Greirat has gone; telling Patches where Greirat went will trigger Patches leaving temporarily while he attempts to save (not kill) him. Patches can save Greirat from his first two expeditions but if you send Greirat to Lothric Castle, Patches will leave attempting to save him but fail. He will return after you defeat a boss.

Item Drops



  • His dialogue changes depending on the player's gender and whether the player's class is Cleric or not. He'll call males 'Cleric' and females 'Nun'.
  • If the first time you talk to Patches in Firelink Shrine is after you have sent Greirat to on his second expedition, he will not mention knowing Greirat, and will not ask where he's gone.


  • Many unused slight variations of Patches' face remains in the FaceParams.
