Amnesiac, Lapp

General Info
Health Souls Drops
???? 3300 Siegbrau

Amnesiac Lapp,  is an NPC in Dark Souls 3. He is part of second DLC, The Ringed City. A man with a plate-armor helm you can encounter at Dreg Heap. He states that he's an amnesiac hollow and calls himself "Lapp." Maybe he could be a reliable fellow.


Amnesiac, Lapp Information

  • Killable
  • Events with this NPC
  • Can be summoned for The Demon Prince fight on the ledge right before you drop down.
  • Can be summoned for The Spear of the Church fight behind the right door to the cathedral, given that you have completed his questline. 


Lapp's Questline

  1. You can find Lapp first at The Dreg Heap, then at The Ringed City (Location)
  2. Dreg Heap: After the tower falls down, destroying a portion of the church with 2 Lothric Knights in it, go back in and use it as a bridge to find him.
  3. Earthen Peak: Next to the first bonfire, he's just sitting there on a piece of elevated ground before the angels start appearing, in order for him to move to the next point, you need to grab the Titanite Slab. He will speak to you about treasure and if you don't retrieve it he'll have it for you later. (You can quickly obtain the slab by reloading the area with quitting or using homeward bones three times.) Lapp will have moved down to just below where he was sitting. Exhaust all dialog for the treasure.)
  4. He can then be summoned on the ledge right before the Demon Prince fight. A Siegbrau can be found where you met him in Earthen Peak after the fight.
  5. Ringed City Inner Wall: He's on a balcony, straight across from the locked shortcut door. Speak to him to get a Siegbrau and he will mention seeking the Purging Monument
  6. Swamp: As soon as you go down the steps, turn left and follow the wall to see a ladder (Mind the monks). Climb this ladder and go up the stairs, then turn left. You should spot a Ringed Spear Knight, he should have a regular Ringed Knight hidden further down. Lure them one by one. Past them is an entrance leading to a round area with a couple chairs. Lapp is there sitting on one.
  7. After you find the Purging Monument, come back and tell him how to get to it. You have until the final boss of the DLC to do this, after which he goes completely hollow and becomes hostile. (I found Lapp on the balcony after defeating Slave Knight Gael and I was still able to proceed with this questline without Lapp going hollow).
  8. Final Appearance: Crumbling staircase right after your first meeting with the dragon Midir. As soon as you're past the part where he breathes fire along the path, turn right and go down into the Shared Grave. There's a bit of rubble there that may look impassable, but it is not. He's in the room directly to your right. Just do what he says (familiar cutscene will play) and he should drop the Lapp's Set and Champion's Bones (if you don't own Ashes of Ariandel) in front of that same room. NOTE: He drops the items outside the room in shared graves. In other words, you have to get back up. You do not need to reload the area.
  9. He can be summoned, as his true identity, for the Halflight, Spear of the Church Boss fight. His sign is behind the door on the right, but you must have completed the above steps for it to appear.


Combat Information


First encounter dialogue

"Oh, look at you, you've got your head screwed on correct.
Fantastic, to meet a kindred spirit, on this godforsaken crag.

Call me Lapp. I can't remember my real name, so let's just go with that.
I have a feeling we're going to make a fabulous team. Oh, you'll see, you'll see!
ohh, in all honesty there's something I should tell you
I'm..a hollow. Yes, I try to play it off, but i haven't a clue about my past.
Who I was , or what I lived for. Not even my own blessed name.
That's why I've come here, searching - for the purging monument, said to be in the ringed city. Where the pygmies who found the dark souls at the dawn of fire reside.
All I can say is, those little stones aren't doing much to help me remember anymore.

Well, that's the long and short of it,
so if I completely forget who you are, don't be wrath with me
c'mon what else can I say, I'm a bloody hollow for heaven's sake!"

Second encounter dialogue

"Oh, I know who you are
Great to still see you in one piece
Cor, I can see why they call this the dreg heap at the world's end
Mangled remnants from every age and every land

It actually lends credence to the old rumours
that the ringed city rests below it all

Ah, don't mind me, you needn't worry yourself with this nonsense.

I just wanted to tell someone, and I'm sick of old humpty

I should stay quiet. wait, I'll make it up to you and let you in on a secret
past here, you'll find the remains of a giant earthen tower,
not a very nice place to visit, only there's precious treasure in the thick of the swamp
I ddn't have any use for it you see, but I left the package behind
if I get the chance i could go fetch it for you, but maybe you'd rather go grab it yourself?
i know who you are, a righteous warrior, yes, with a solemn duty to boot?
well grab that treasure, that's as good a treasure as any.

Ohh, look at you, you found the treasure
dashing, just dashing, you'll make good use of it I'm sure
now this is a little toast from me to you
not much to speak of, but bottoms up - to the greatest warrior there is.

If you don't find the treasure

Oh, there you are - perfect timing
you remember that treasure?
well, I fetched it for you, as promised.
oh, it was only a hop and a skip - I needed a rest from old nan over there
here, go ahead, its yours - maybe it'll help you with that solemn duty of yours
this really is a dreg heap at the worlds end
mangled remnants from every age......."

Third encounter

Oh, well, fancy meeting you here.
A true blessing, that we should seek the same place, and find ourselves standing here, together.
I've got the last of my brew. Let's have our own little toast with it.
To my search, and to your duty. And to the joy that lies before us.
All right, then. Bottoms up! Now, I'm off in search of the Purging Monument.
Once I find it, everything will come back to me.
Who I was, what I lived for, what my name was.
What terrible grudges I held.

...I dunno, I just have this feeling. That that's the kind of man I was.
Oh, don't hold it against me, I only think I was! Now, I'm off in search of the Purging Monument.
Once I find it, everything will come back to me.

When you find him after opening the Show Your Humanity shortcut

Oh, and here we are again.
How goes things? I'm rather running in circles, I'm afraid.
I can't find the Purging Monument. And I've searched high and low.
What if it was never here in the first place?
Ah, bloody hell, what do I know.
Sorry, I know it doesn't concern you.
Seeing you all good and well, I...
I just sort of spilled my guts to you.
Just forget it all. Like a good Hollow would!

...What did I come here in search of?

Damn, stop it, I'm unbreakable, unbreakable.

...Ahh, please, someone tell me...

If you tell him where the Purging Monument is:

Who am I? Why am I here?
Are you certain of that?
No, sorry, I know you'd never lie to me.
Thank you, thank you kindly. I'll speed right on over.
It won't be long now, before I know everything.
Who I was, what I lived for, and what my name was.
And I'll have you to thank for it all.

Ahh, thank you, most sincerely.
I swear upon my birth name.
That I am your friend. No matter what might come out, no matter what I was.
If you would do me the honour, allow me to be a true friend, always.

It won't be long now, before I know everything.
Who I was, what I lived for, and what my name was.
And I'll have you to thank for it all.

Final encounter:

Oh, finally, you've come.
Now I know exactly who I was. And for that, I've a little thanks to be giving.
Go this way, and peep past the broken staircase. Some awfully fine treasure's just sitting there all alone.
It'll change your life.

I've much to thank you for, so I'll say it again and again.
Go this way, and peep past the broken staircase. Some awfully fine treasure's just sitting there all alone.
What, don't you believe me?

Every age, it seems, is tainted by the greed of men.
Rubbish, to one such as I, devoid of all worldly wants! Hmmm, I dunno, maybe it's just the way we are.
I'll stick you in my prayers. A fine dark soul, to you.


What's wrong, friend?
Stop it! Oh, please!
...Bloody hell! Lost your mind, have you?
Then I have no choice! Forgive me!
...I deserved this.

Forgive me, friend.
I cannot die just yet.
What in bloody hell?
Stop that! Enough of that!
...Bloody hell, you've lost your head, have you?
Then, let's have a go, shall we.
I'm unbreakable! You can't crack me! I'll rot yer flesh!
...Curses, of all the luck.

Everything always goes to pot, doesn't it.

True friends, eh?
Everything always goes to pot, doesn't it.

      kinda wish i hadnt given the bastard his memory back, going hollow actually made him a good person

      gets his memory back and hes already back to being a self righteous douchebag while the world ends around him

      oh well, shouldnt have expected otherwise from patches. just gonna murk him for his armor next time i play elden ring, as always

        If he gives you Siegbrau in an area, killing him there won't drop another.
        Also, killing him in his final location where he is squatting, it won't drop it either, in case someone wonders.

          My assumption is that Lapp is the Patches from the first Dark Souls game. Now you might ask how is this possible? (For those who don't know you meet him in the giants tomb in ds1 and he pushes you down a hole. He turns hostile and can be killed if you go back to see him.) My theory is that he was somehow able to come back to life like how the ashen one (and other dark souls protagonists) has. And his travels led him to the ringed city and here we are.

            Dude tanking demon prince & stomp halflight like a gigachad, no wonder he still survive until the world end.

              Hating lapp is like hating a horse for eating hay, it's in his nature for him to behave the way he does.

              he's a lovable sort, and I literally can't hold a grudge on him

                I'm not seeing this mentioned so- warning for early quest break- idk what happened but-
                I got the slab and came back to tell him, when he gave me the- drink I won't bother spell- I got a discord call-
                when i came back from the call I was being spawn camped by "amnesiac lapp" and I had to kill him.

                  I knew exactly how his questline would end the second I heard his voice and the word treasure, yet I was still surprised a little bit when it actually happened. Perhaps the fact that he actually gave me a Titanite Slab like it was nothing gave me some hope that it would be a bromance from there on out ;)

                    no joke the siegbrau that lapp gave me literally saved my life when fighting gael, I ran out of estus and gael was two shot. the only healing item that I had was the siegbrau that lapp gave me. I drank it and traded shots with gael. I hit him twice and he hit me once. Gael died and I lived on 6hp

                      It always amazed me. From made the ultimate douchbag for 4 games just to show us that he isn't actually evil. Patches lived for ages, seeing how greed corrupts everyone in the end and ruin civilizations. Technically speaking if his act in DS1 was indeed successful and the chosen undead would die in the pit. Perhaps the world would have been different for the better. In his cutscene in the ringed city, he let's you get the dark soul. The most valuable possession in history because he sees now thar as the world is ruined, perhaps time to do something else or different *enter bloodborne in the painting of the dark soul concept*

                        Well, this is partially true. If you kill Patches in Firelink Shrine, then he can't be summoned (his sign won't appear), though you can do Lapp quest-line nevertheless.

                        How I found out? Well, bored me killed Patches after finishing main game and when it came to summon him, after doing Lapp questline, to help me with Halflight, his sign is nowhere to be found. So don't do stupid things like I did.

                          Each time I met him, I wasn't sure whether he was a new character or a returning one. The whole "Amnesiac" thing (and the fact that it's Dark Souls) strongly suggested the plot would take a turn for the worse. Then, I saw him there in the Shared Grave, squatting, and I knew, and I sighed.

                            I love how he sounds like siegward the first time u see him in the ringed city, since he stole his identity in the main story, thats the little details that make u love the game.

                              Wow this quest made me sad. In the Dreg Heap when he was toasting Siegbrau and talking in that cheery manner I really thought he was Siegmeyer, somehow surviving until the end of the world.

                              Instead, Siegmeyer is probably long dead, and "Lapp" is actually that annoying lil **** who has been around since the first Linking.

                              There is also more to Lapp's quest than you think. The personalities of "Lapp" and "Patches" are parallels to the dark soul, the repressed true identity of humanity, and the white soul, the fake identity, taken by humans after Gwyn's terrible treachery. Who is the real Patches? The ******* who likes to kick people off things, or the warm and friendly knight ?

                              BACKGROUND LORE IF YOU'RE CONFUSED: In the Age of Fire, Gwyn sealed the dark soul of the pygmy (who was our ancestor) and trapped it within the Darksign. While their true humanities were left starving and neglected behind the darksign, humans held onto the white souls they found scattered around the land as their own identity. This is why humans go hollow as the fire weakens, because the fire of the Darksign fades, letting their humanity out, which after being starved for a lifetime begins to devour the fake soul, which has all their memories.

                              Long story short, Gwyn was a nerd who ****ed over an entire species and consequentially the world itself because he was, quite literally, scared of the dark.

                              • lapp comes back in the dreg heap even after you killed him because hes hollowed. just like how you hollow when you die. and just like say, lucatiel from ds2, his memories faded until her reversed his hollowing at the monument

                                        Lapp might represent the true nature of Patches, a kind, trustworthy warriors that keeps helping you.
                                        Yet he experience (This ****in world) turns him to be a damn thief and a liar... What a shame.
                                        But still, Patches wasn't completely evil. He would always returns the flavor If you ever helped him. (Like he saved the greyrat)

He has always hated patches with a seething passion, so when lapp kicked him down he lost his **** and alt f4d cuz he was fed up with it lmao

                                                                  Though the reveal was somewhat predictable.

So much sweeter that he got to think he made it to the end of the world only to find out that he might be unbreakable but still bleeds like a pig when his 'best friend' slices him up.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

And unlocking the lord Gwyn set in the handmaiden shop.

Lapp was really well handled until the last cutscene where it just flops like "ha ha it me". Especially since this***** happens twice in the same game. If anything, this should've been the only Patches appearance in 3.

He could just be an unlucky, selfish bad guy whose traps never work, he COULD be the good guy leading you to the right direction, but From leaves it ambiguous like almost everything is in the games. Pretty sure, like a lot of quests, it's up to the player's interpretation.

To everyone talking about how you go through all this effort just for him to betray you in the end, consider the following: 1. Patches' "betrayal" was not only harmless, it puts you on the right path. 2. He leaves his armor behind for you - I guess it's not confirmed "for you," but he could've chucked it into the pit. 3. Most convincing, he leaves his summon sign down by Halflight. Does risking life and limb for a stranger sound like the Patches we know? I think it's much like his relationship with Greirat. Patches clearly cares for the old thief - or for you in this case - but he has this persona as a heartless psychopath and he's not about to let that drop. To me, this raises questions about Patches' past - it seems he wasn't just a bad seed, so what made him so cynical? Does it have something to do with his hatred for clerics? However, that's neither here or there in this comment.

I saw the twist coming right from the beginning but it still hurt? I lied to myself, saying.. Well.. maybe this time it'll be different.. and it wasn't. Emotionally this questline hurt a lot.

                                                                                            • Patches, a metaphore for the "Director" of DkS1/3. I dunno who remembers the "pendant" scandal or him saying no "DkS" game is being worked on then Remastered got announced. Too much hype makes people blind and the groud harder once you smack into it.

You can kill all bosses in the entire game including all DLC bosses and this quest will remain available to complete.
