Benhart's debt dialogue
— Benhart of Jugo

Benhart of Jugo is a character in Dark Souls II. He's voiced by Tom Cotcher, who also voices Cromwell the Pardoner.

Description Edit

Benhart is a proud warrior with a deep belief in living by the sword. He has short, blonde hair and a very thick Scottish accent. The most notable thing about Benhart is the teal greatsword that he always has on his person. His sword, the Bluemoon Greatsword, is his most prized possession, as it is a family heirloom, and he believes it has some hidden potential.

In regards to his personality, Benhart is honorable, and stalwart. He believes that strength is proved through combat, and came to Drangleic in order to test his mettle.

Lore Edit

Benhart comes from a long line of great warriors. He was born in the desert land of Jugo and his signature weapon, the Bluemoon Greatsword, is a family heirloom that has been passed for generations amongst the members of his family. Determined to prove that his sword has some hidden potential within it, he travels from land to land to hone his swordsmanship in battle.

During his journey, he found the set of armor he wears during the events of the game. It can be noted that his armor depicts the sigil of a stag similar to the one found in Creighton's armor. This implies that, at some point during his travels, Benhart might have traveled to Mirrah and acquired his equipment there.

Eventually, Benhart ended up in Drangleic. In this land, he met the merchants Maughlin; of the western land of Volgen, and Magerold of Lanafir. Although both merchants were curious about Benhart's sword, both of them think that his weapon might be a replica of a certain legendary sword.

Plot Edit

Benhart is first found near Majula, outside of the Shaded Woods. When approached by the player, he is sitting and contemplating what to do, as the way forward is blocked by the petrified Rosabeth. When Rosabeth is unpetrified by using a Fragrant Branch of Yore, he thanks the player for clearing the way and hopes to the see them again. At this point, one can learn the gesture "Joy" from him. After, he can be summoned to assist with the Prowling Magus and Congregation boss fight, in Brightstone Cove.

He can then be found next to the bonfire past the Dragonriders, in Drangleic Castle. He remarks on the discord of the land, before changing locations. He will then be available for summon to fight the Looking Glass Knight.

After, he will move to the ramparts past The Pursuer boss fight area in the Forest of Fallen Giants. He will state that he will assist the player in any challenge. He will then remark on the lineage of his weapon and its apparent hidden potential.

If the Ashen Mist Heart is possessed, he can be found in the Memory of Orro near his position on the ramparts. He can, additionally, be summoned to fight the Giant Lord.

He can be summoned to fight the Prowling Magus, Looking Glass Knight, Giant LordThrone Watcher and Defender, Nashandra and Elana boss fights.

Benhart drops the Bluemoon Greatsword upon death. If his sword is taken to Maughlin the Armorer, he will note that the sword is a fake; the true sword being the Moonlight Greatsword.
