Wow this quest made me sad. In the Dreg Heap when he was toasting Siegbrau and talking in that cheery manner I really thought he was Siegmeyer, somehow surviving until the end of the world.
Instead, Siegmeyer is probably long dead, and "Lapp" is actually that annoying lil **** who has been around since the first Linking.
There is also more to Lapp's quest than you think. The personalities of "Lapp" and "Patches" are parallels to the dark soul, the repressed true identity of humanity, and the white soul, the fake identity, taken by humans after Gwyn's terrible treachery. Who is the real Patches? The ******* who likes to kick people off things, or the warm and friendly knight ?
BACKGROUND LORE IF YOU'RE CONFUSED: In the Age of Fire, Gwyn sealed the dark soul of the pygmy (who was our ancestor) and trapped it within the Darksign. While their true humanities were left starving and neglected behind the darksign, humans held onto the white souls they found scattered around the land as their own identity. This is why humans go hollow as the fire weakens, because the fire of the Darksign fades, letting their humanity out, which after being starved for a lifetime begins to devour the fake soul, which has all their memories.
Long story short, Gwyn was a nerd who ****ed over an entire species and consequentially the world itself because he was, quite literally, scared of the dark.
