The beloved black axe of the gallant Shieldless Lothian, formerly of Forossa.

No warrior matched the ferocity of unbeatable Lothian, but he abruptly retired from the battlefield and was never heard from again. Some say that he grew tired of the frailty of human foes, and set off to slay the legendary dragon.

Acquired From

  • Treasure in the Shaded Woods - past the Ruined Fork Road Bonfire. One of the roads will take you down a path in which you will find a mini-boss Flexile Sentry. The axe is behind him on a corpse.
  • Scholar of the First Sin - From the Ruined For Road Bonfire, take the leftmost path. Continue forward and you will find a corpse with the axe on it.



Hints and Tips:

  • This axe is very powerful when dual wielded but not powerstanced. If the left hand l1 and right hand r1 are alternated then you will get your opponent in what seems to be a inescapable stunlock.
  • Be warned, there is one additional hollow in the area that WILL screw up auto-target, and WILL cause you to turn your back to the flexile sentry and get clubbed in the head.
  • Upgraded using Twinkling Titanite to +5.
  • It can be buffed with any type of pine resin, despite it being an elemental weapon. It's recommended to use gold pine resin to get even more lightning damage.
  • This axe has a faster swing speed and unique move set compared to other axes, with the exception of powerstancing two Dragonslayer's Crescent Axes, it's the same moveset as other axes.
  • May be a reference to Perrin Aybara, a character from a fantasy book series called "the wheel of time" due to it closely resembling the description of Perrin's axe. Futhermore, it is found on a hollow along with the Golden Falcon Shield, which may in itself be a reference to Perrin's wife Zarine, who goes by the name Faile, which means 'falcon' in one of the languages of that series.
