Leonhard Information


Leonhard's Questline


  1. Start: You will first meet Leonhard after reaching the second bonfire at the High Wall of Lothric. Return to Firelink Shrine to find Leonhard leaning against Holy King Lothric's throne. Speaking to him will grant you five Cracked Red Eye Orbs.
  2. After obtaining 1 Pale Tongue, and lighting the Cliff Underside bonfire or defeating the Curse-Rotted Greatwood in the Undead Settlement, Leonhard will give you the Lift Chamber Key to the locked door below the Tower on the Wall bonfire. (Note: Pale Tongue must still be in the inventory at this encounter, if you use it, he will not appear)
  3. At the Tower on the Wall bonfire head down two levels and open the locked gate. Take the lift down and defeat the Darkwraith to obtain the Red Eye Orb. Then return to Firelink Shrine and speak to Leonhard again.
  4. Once you reach the Cathedral of the Deep, find Rosaria´s Fingers in Rosaria's Chamber at the second floor of the Cathedral of the Deep and offer at least 1 Pale Tongue to Rosaria (Do NOT rank up in Rosaria's Fingers until the next event happens)
  5. Speak to Leonhard at Rosaria's Chamber (over by the entrance to the chamber) and exhaust his dialogue.
  6. After reaching the Profaned Capital bonfire, return to Rosaria's Chamber and pick up the Black Eye Orb in front of Rosaria's corpse.
  7. Go to Gwynevere's bed chamber, above the Aldrich, Devourer of Gods bonfire.  Here you will receive a prompt to use the Black Eye Orb to invade Leonhard.
  8. End: Kill him here to obtain his hat (Silver Mask), Soul of Rosaria (use to revive her or to purchase Bountiful Sunlight miracle from Ludleth at Firelink Shrine), and the Crescent Moon Sword.


  1. This quest can be easily and quickly completed at the end of the game if the player chooses to complete Sirris' questline first. If the initial stages of receiving his Cracked Red Eye Orbs and the Lift Chamber Key have not been completed, perform these by talking to Leonhard in Firelink Shrine. Once he tells you to join Rosaria's Fingers, go to Rosaria's Bed Chamber and offer Rosaria a Pale Tongue. Leonhard will then appear at the entrance and you must talk to him and exhaust his dialogue. Then use a Homeward Bone or Coiled Sword Fragment to return to the last bonfire rested at (Bringing you to same place). At this point, Rosaria will be dead and you can loot the Black Eye Orb from her corpse. Now travel to the "Aldrich, Devourer of Gods" bonfire and use the elevator to go up to Gwynevere's bed chamber. Here you can use the Black Eye Orb to invade Leonhard and kill him. By this process you will get the Silver Mask, Crescent Moon Sword and Rosaria's Soul immediately.
  2. Equipping the Rosaria's Fingers covenant item or turning in any number of Pale Tongues will halt you from progressing Sirris' questline, although you can finish his questline at any point after you do Sirris' questline. Simply asking to join and obtaining the Rosaria's Fingers will not halt the progress of Sirris' questline, nor will reallocating attributes or changing appearance.
  3. If you kill Leonhard before you have killed the Darkwraith locked in the Undead Settlement, the Red Eye Orb will be replaced wih a Pale Tongue. It is recomended to wait until after you have defeated the Darkwraith before you attempt to kill him.
  4. You can still use every one of Rosaria's services without returning her Soul, so it is recommended not to return it.







First encounter dialogue

Mm, Unkindled, are we...
And fast on the trail of the Lords absconded?
Then these red eyes are for you."
(Gives Cracked Red Eye Orb x5)

"Use them to pillage embers, and briefly heighten your strength, for your duty.
What else are unkindled ashes good for?"


After obtaining Pale Tongue

Well, hasn't it been some time.
I'm Leonhard, the Ringfinger.
Remember me?  I slipped you those red eyes some time ago.
You're making quite an effort of it. So I thought you might like to know.
If you yearn for a proper red eye orb, one that is uncracked...
Then kill the Darkwraith, survivor of the land swallowed by darkness.
He has been a prisoner, for many ages. In the deepest cell in all Lothric..."

(Gives Lift Chamber Key)

"I can see it in your eyes.  If you didn't invade, didn't pillage, whatever would you do?"


After obtaining Red Eye Orb

Ah-hah, you've found a proper red eye...
Brilliant. I knew you were no ordinary man/woman."

(Gives Applause gesture)

"Now invade and pillage all you like.
And if you grow weary of your duty, you, too, may become a Finger.
Come on, give yourself to Rosaria, of the Cathedral of the Deep."


In Rosiaria's Bed Chamber after joining covenant

"Ahh, so you've chosen to serve Rosaria after all.
She will be pleased with me for finding her another Finger...
But be warned, my friend.
Rosaria's Fingers need only fetch tongues for their mistress.
Otherwise, we are free, unchained.
Like Yellowfinger, you can choose to believe that all Fingers share camoradarie.
But do not force your romance on the rest of us."

When attacked

"What's wrong with you?"

"Can you even hear me? If you can, cease this at once.
Before it's too late."

"I see, I see, as clear as day.
You are a vile, starved beast.
Much too dangerous for her!"


Killing player

"You beast. You've trifled with the wrong knight."


On Death

"Curses, I can't... die here...
My dear Goddess..."


When invaded in Anor Londo

"Well, well, never expected to see you here.
Felt sorry for the poor thing, in all her festering glory?
And now you want to ravage her soul, as well.
I sowed the seeds. I'll prune the mess.
I, Leonhard, swear so upon my vows to the goddess."

"No one will despoil her soul.
Certainly no beast wrapped in human skin!"

"What do you want with her soul?
Isn't flesh enough for a sick beast?!" 


Killing the player's invading phantom

"Enough with you, my friend.
A knight of the goddess does not die."


Invading after being defeated

"Well, well, back for more, are you?
Vicious one, aren't you? I knew it all along.
And now you want to ravage her soul, as well."

"You are no longer of use. You'll run free no more.
I, Leonhard, swear so upon my vows to the goddess."


Death during invasion

"Blessed Rosaria..."



  • In the same vein as the Patches line of characters, Leonhard's name is a reference to Leonhardt from Armored Core 4. Ironically, Leonhard is a scoundrel, whereas Leonhardt is virtuous and noble.
  • Very similar to Knight Lautrec of Carim from Dark Souls, with a shady personality, weapon set and even a quest with a Black Eye Orb.
  • Voiced by Edward Bennett.
  • Lore Theory By Hodor: Served Rosaria out of love, until he met the Lady Gwyn at the Prison Tower. Also, after seeing the Player Character take to murder and the way of a finger, he becomes disillusioned with his blood-lust and serves the Dark Moon Knights. -"Leonhard set out on a journey of rebirth, but decided instead to serve the goddess as a knight, and inherited this weapon." Possibly the intended spouse of Yorshka as he was a noble, after thinking her dead served Rosaria. Until finding her in the Prison Tower.
  • Fact: Changes Covenant's during quest line. Doesn't have Crescent Moon Sword in Firelink Shrine.

      Ranking up in Rosaria's Fingers does not adversely affect his questline. He'll still appear in her room as usual upon offering tongues and reloading the area. (I offered 30 and he still showed up in my game.)

        Don't get what he wanted to accomplish by stealing Rosarias Soul. Did he hated her? Did he loved her and couldn't bear other people worshipping her? Was he the son who cutted off her tounge? Was he crazy? Wanted he her power? Is there an explaination why he suddenly kills her...after we did what we where asked himself?!

          It says that killing him before killing killing the Dark Wraith replaces the Red Eye Orb with a Pale Tongue. This is false as I killed him as soon as I saw him in Firelink before finding the Dark Wraith at all and I still was given the Red Eye Orb

            i just try it after giving rosaria 30 tongues and the quest proceed as usual ending with rosaria's death so it doesnt have to be just the one pale tongue. (all after ending the game)

              if you're planning on killing him for the set don't worry about missing out on the non-cracked red eye orb. Upon his death he will drop his mask and the key to get to the dark wraith. You don't need to get it from him.

                General FYI: If you click 'offer Rosaria a tongue'... then click "NO" when asked for confirmation, you will STILL piss off Sirris... Just don't go near that button or bad stuff happens =(

                  Here's how to screw up and ruin the questline!
                  1) Do everything Leonhard asks until you get the Red Eye Orb
                  2) Ignore Leonhard like an idiot and don't get the applause gesture
                  3) Meet Rosaria and join the Fingers
                  4) Offer her a pale tongue on TWO separate occasions in an attempt to get Leonhard to appear in her chamber
                  5) Go back to Firelink and realize Leonhard isn't there either, so you can't fix the quest

                  10/10 game, not a single quest-breaking bug in sight

                    Easiest way to complete Sirris' questline and this one, but still PVP is to get all the way until you get the lift chamber key, and kill the DarkWraith. He will drop the Red Eye Orb. Leonhardt will forever remain leaning against the throne after this point, so simply don't talk to him again until you have completed Sirris' questline. Once thats done you can talk to him again and quickly wrap up the questline. And as long as you don't offer any pale tongues to Rosiaria, you can invade and collect all the plae tongues you like.

                      Does equipping Rosaria's covenant item without offering any tongues really end the Sirris story? Sirris didn't get mad at me and leave until I gave a tongue even though I have already equipped the fingers covenant.

                        So... He disappeared on me after I got the cracked red eye orbs from him. Invaded and he's gone now. Help?

                          I accidentaly ranked up in Rosaria's covenant and got the ring, does that mean that I can't proceed in the questline?

                            I fell on him in Firelink after making Yuria hostile (because I wanted the Manikin Claws and Pale Shade set from Londor Pale Shade)
                            now I have 2 NPCs chasing me around Firelink and I wasn't planing to absolve myself of sin until Londor Pale Shade's second invasion.
                            Why can't he just be in a corner like Yuria and not see me? Now I have to pay to get him to leave me alone!
                            I feel like an idiot for falling on his head in the first place!

                                Aside from Leonhard, is there any other NPCs you can invade? I totally missed the Anastacia questline in the first game because I didn't know you COULD invade NPC worlds.

                                  "I can see it in your eyes. If you didn't invade, didn't pillage, whatever would you do?"
                                  "Farm, farm and farm again because From has forsaken offline players."

                                    Remember Anastacia of Astora from DS1? She had pretty much the same general questline (speechless woman without a tongue but with special powers [being a Firekeeper vs "Rebirth"], gets killed by a knight, who steals her soul, has soul returned after Player invades and kills the Knight). The thing is: after being resurrected, she regains both her tongue and her ability to speak. So why is Rosaria still speechless even after resurrection?

                                      Lore Theory: Ringfinger Leonhard killed Rosaria and gained her soul in order to revive Gwynevere. One thing to note though, I believe that Rosaria and Gwynevere are the same entities, just that Gwynevere become 'corrupted' somehow and became Rosaria, either fleeing or kidnapped to the Cathedral. Why else would Leonhard take Rosaria's soul and specifically bring it to the chamber of (the illusion of) Gwynevere. During the dialogue, he constantly remarks on how the player is going to 'ravage' her soul. This may be in reference to the soul transposition of Rosaria/Gwynevere's soul, or reviving Rosaria's body. It makes sense on the point of soul transposition, but reviving her? This leads me to believe that Leonhard began to understand that Rosaria/Gwynevere was suffering in that state.
                                      If you're still not hooked on the idea that Rosaria is Gwynevere, that's fine. Let me just note that you can transpose the Soul of Rosaria into Bountiful Sunlight, where in the description it reads, "Special Miracle granted by the Princess of Sunlight... The miracles of Gwynevere, loved as both mother and wife bestow their blessing on a great many warriors". If her soul specifically can be used to create a miracle of Gwynevere, can it not be used to revive Gwynevere?
