"Indeed, I am a sorcerer. With plenty to share.
What champion demands service without recompense?"
— Orbeck

Orbeck of Vinheim is a character in Dark Souls III.

He is voiced by Brendan Patricks.

In-Game Description

Once an assassin for hire, a sorcerer only in name, exiled from the Dragon School of Vinheim after turning Undead, on a journey to explore the depths of sorcery.


Orbeck is initially located studying sorcery scrolls on the second floor of the ruined keep in the Road of Sacrifices. He then moves to the Firelink Shrine where he can teach the Ashen One numerous spells. He can be given different scrolls to increase the number of spells he teaches. Once he has taught all his spells and Lorian, Elder Prince and Lothric, Younger Prince have been defeated his corpse can be found in the Grand Archives along with his ashes.


Orbeck hails from Vinheim home of the Vinheim Dragon School, a school of sorcery. Orbeck was a member of this school until he was banished when he became undead. Despite his fascination for magic this was not the reason he was admitted in the dragon school. He was only admitted when he accepted to become an assassin for the school.[1] This is further proven by the black robe he wears which is only used by members of the school that are tasked with more covert work.[2]

  • To recruit Orbeck, the player must have a minimum of 10 Intelligence before talking to him at the Road of Sacrifices, otherwise he will dismiss them.
    • Equipping the Scholar Ring will count towards this requirement, allowing any player who has progressed to the Grand Archives to recruit him should they wish not to invest levels into the stat.
  • Once Orbeck has relocated to Firelink Shrine, he will ask the player to bring scrolls as a deal for him to stay. If the player defeats any four bosses before bringing Orbeck a single scroll, he will hold true to his promise and depart for the rest of the game.
  • If Orbeck has been recruited, Yuria of Londor will tell the player in dialogue to "deal with him". The player can either kill Orbeck and loot his ashes or wait until he leaves to the Grand Archives and loot them from his body there. Either way, give the ashes to Yuria to receive the Morion Blade.
  • Once the player has purchased any four sorceries, Orbeck will gift them the Young Dragon Ring.
  • After purchasing Aural Decoy, Farron Flashsword, Spook, and Pestilent Mist, Orbeck will reward the player with the "Silent Ally" gesture, along with the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring. Buying these spells will ensure they acquire all gifts from him in only four purchases.
