"Be gone with you! ...You'll spoil my focus."
— Vamos

Vamos is a character in Dark Souls. A reclusive, surly old skeleton, Vamos is a blacksmith by trade. He is voiced by Daniel Flynn, who also voiced Solaire of Astora and the Giant Blacksmith.


The bottom of The Catacombs can be accessed from the spiralling staircase by falling onto a series of ledges and into a hole. Upon reaching him, he will open up a shortcut to the wheel skeleton valley.


Vamos is the blacksmith in The Catacombs. It might take a while to make it back out of the Catacombs from there and the Tomb of the Giants which proceeds after him is quite large, so his repair services may prove invaluable. He is also the only blacksmith that is able to upgrade weapons down the Fire (by default, can be enhanced after giving him the Large Flame Ember) and Chaos (after giving him the Chaos Flame Ember) paths.


Little to nothing is known about Vamos. No other character acknowledges his existence, let alone his past, as far as anyone knows. Aside from his antisocial remarks, the only information that can be gleaned of his previous life is the Royal Helm he possesses, which is hinted to belong to an ancient royal line.
