Pieta can initially be found at Skyrest Bridge.
- Nearest Vestige: Vestige of Ethryg
After defeating Pieta, She of Blessed Renewal, a remnant of her can be seen when you interact with the Umbral Realm in front of the gate at the Skyrest Bridge. In that memory, Pieta was seen casting a Radiant Healing Spell on those she calls brothers and sisters in the hopes of easing their suffering. After that, go through the passage on the left side that will take you to the place where you will meet a bunch of other NPCs.
As you head inside the building, you will be met by Exacter Dunmire who welcomes you in. In the Main Area of the Skyrest Bridge, you will find Pieta who is alive and well. When you speak to her, she will be delighted in knowing that you're a divine instrument sent by Orius to deliver her death and rebirth, which resulted in her getting clarity. At this point, she will tell you the story of how Orius sustains her, and her wishes to lend that power to you.
The blood flowing in Pieta's veins is so powerful that its contents can bring healing to those who drink it. She will also ask you to bring her any of the Saintly Quintessences you can find so that she can further bolster the power within the Sanguinarix you carry. Upgrading your Sanguinarix will result in getting more charges as well as the efficacy of each Sanguinarix charge. This will help you in the mission of cleansing beacons, restoring the Hallowed Sentinels, and eradicating Adyr's malignancies. These are the missions that Pieta speaks of and she will lend her power to you, every step of the way, all in service of Orius.
When you speak to Pieta in the Hub at Skyrest Bridge, she will tell you how The Descriers of the Dawn were misguided, and that they foster misinterpretations of Orius' divine will and works. She goes on to continue that many of the nobles in Mournstead that are entombed beneath the crypt followed their teachings, and held beliefs that it was Orius' power that maintained the structure and not the integrity of the stonework. This shows how much Pieta is a follower of Orius, as displayed by this monologue.
During your 3rd encounter, Pieta speaks of how sacred texts depict Saint Latimer, a noble knight and a devout follower of Our Lady, who was canonized after he sacrificed himself to show the Hallowed Sentinels what was necessary for the greater good. She shares that many have given their lives to sustain the beacons, but Latimer was the first one to do so and remains one of their most venerated figures.
On your 4th encounter with Pieta, you will still find her in the same location at Skyrest Bridge. She tells you that she too, has a conscience and she understands the instinct to pity the boy found at the base of the mine, and the desire to condemn the Hallowed Sentinels for such an act. However, she reminds you not to be hasty- that the bond between the boy and the Umbral realm is indissoluble, and that he plays a vital role in safeguarding Mournstead.
If you have the Odd Stone, hand it over to Pieta. She will examine it and tell you that it looks different, and yet, somehow, she recognizes it. She tells a story from her childhood, back in the orphanage when she was still young and before the Hallowed Sentinels found her. She met a kind woman named Iris who helped her overcome her fears of being alone. She tells you that she lost the stone a long time ago, and yet it found her again after all these years. In our playthrough, we gave 3 Odd Stones to Pieta, but we didn't notice any immediate changes.
When you meet her again, Pieta will tell you that the abbey is the only other home that she ever knew, aside from the orphanage she grew up in. She feels the pain of seeing what it had become, but it pains her even more to see her afflicted brothers and sisters who roam its halls and courts. Although Pieta says, that she takes comfort in knowing that salvation is near for all, except those who started the corruption.
Pieta's True Form
Players can unlock Pieta's True form by following the Umbral Ending guide. This fight is accessible when you're aiming to get the Umbral Ending in Lords of the Fallen. This can be achieved after killing off certain NPCs and eventually interacting with Pieta and revealing the truth about what empowers her, and her healing abilities.
To do this, players will return to Skyrest Bridge, and use Soulflay on Pieta. This will cause Pieta to unleash her true form and become one of the most powerful Bosses in Lords of the Fallen. Pieta has dedicated her life to Orius and because she served a cause she deemed greater than herself and giving life, she didn't realize that she was acting in defiance of her own parasitic nature.
Unlock the Umbral Ending in LotF
Unlocking the Umbral Ending in Lords of the Fallen will require killing certain NPCs. By doing so, it will automatically lock out players from completing their quests as well as interacting with them. To unlock the Umbral Ending, do the following related to Molhu:
- After inserting Harkyn's Umbral Parasite in the column inside Skyrest Bridge, speak to Molhu to reveal your next target.
- Interact with Pieta in the hub and Use Soulflay to reveal her parasite. This will teleport you into the fight against one of the most powerful bosses. Defeat the new boss unlocked and take the umbral parasite.
- Insert the Umbral Parasite in the column inside Skyrest Bridge which has an open slot.
