He is the hyena. The faithful. The spider. The indestructible. The unbound. And above all, he is the Mistkerl who goes back without batting with the eyelash, even if we only remember to turn his back on him. If you know your way around the software extended soul universe, you already already know who is meant: the good, old, damn patches.
It is the only character that appears in almost every soul game since the genre was born. And while you could still dismiss your first few appearances as simple running gags, his questlines from Demon’s Souls to Bloodborne to Elden Ring became increasingly extensive and complex. Reason enough for us to take a closer look at the shady bald owner and make a few considerations why from software hangs so much on this character – and what it actually stands for!

Demon’s Souls: He doesn’t dare again!
Demon’s Souls laid the foundation for a new type of action role-playing game: Morbid atmosphere, tough struggles and learning the game mechanics through self-initiative are the focus. And because virtual exitus is the most effective teacher, almost everything and everyone in the Kingdom wants to see Bolaria dead. One is particularly nasty to work.
Depending on which of his two, we first headed, we are either lured under a huge bear beetle or stepped into a dark pit by patches of the hyena. Always with the prospect of valuable treasures, of course. If we follow his trace of rainbow stones in the ritual path, after our first ass next to the leader of the local clergy, we wake up that patch can obviously not stand at all.
Also interesting: the worst soul-likes on Steam!
If we resist the urge to take revenge on patches, he also tells us why: faith and praying do not fill stomachs. The looting of corpses apparently already, because patches make its intentions clear as soon as he thinks he has won. He then sells his stolen goods as a dealer in Nexus. In addition to flimsy excuses, he also has useful information for us in stock: Patches warns against freeing from his cell in Latria, Yurt, the silent chief.
Dark Souls: He dares again.
Patches also appear in Dark Soul as a insidious grave robber with a deep hatred of believers. In keeping with his dubious job, he appears here in the catacombs, where he hides next to a lever for the nearby bridge. A bridge that is randomly folded up while we cross it. If we believe Patches’ innocence taxations and ignore the corpses of the other adventurers who have probably gone to him, he moves deeper into the tomb of the giants. Provided that we did not imagine as a religious or woman.
