Voiced by Cara Theobold

Nepheli Loux, Warrior is an NPC in Elden Ring. Nepheli Loux is a warrior and fellow tarnished who was ordered by decree from her adoptive father to kill and dethrone Godrick. She wears clothing similar to the starting Hero class, and she can help you in the battle against Godrick the Grafted if summoned. Her summoning sign is golden and is just outside the boss fog. Other NPC Summon opportunities include boss fights against Godfrey, First Elden Lord and Omenkiller (in Village of the Albinaurics). Progress in her questline to have her summon sign available for these encounters. 

 

The puppet of Nepheli Loux can be summoned for aid in battle by using the Nepheli Loux Puppet Ashes.

 

Let the scars I carve remind them.   

I am Nepheli Loux. Warrior.

 

Nepheli Loux Location in Elden Ring

Nepheli Loux can initially be found at Stormveil Castle, inside a room before reaching the Secluded Cell site of grace. [Map link]

  • While outside Roundtable Hold, she can be attacked and drops Stormhawk Axe when defeated. 
  • Her adoptive father is Gideon Ofnir, leader of Roundtable Hold. Her real father might be Godfrey, First Elden Lord.
  • After defeating Godrick the Grafted and exhausting the initial dialog with Gideon Ofnir at Roundtable Hold, you can find her in the room outside the library.
  • After exhausting her dialogue at Roundtable Hold, you can find her under the stone bridge leading up to the Village Of The Albinaurics. [Map link]
  • After defeating Omenkiller, Nepheli will return to Roundtable Hold, crouching near the bottom of the stairs next to the blacksmith.
  • Nepheli questline point of failure: If the player speaks to Melina at the Forge of Giants site of grace (triggering the cutscene with the Roundtable Hold) before finishing Nepheli's dialogue and defeating Omenkiller at the Village of the Albinaurics, then she will disappear for good. Her Stormhawk Axes drop at the village and the questline ends. To avoid this failure, defeat Omenkiller and finish her dialogue before resting at the Forge of Giants.

 

Nepheli Loux Questline: How to complete Nepheli Loux's Quest

Her Father's Orders

  • Find Nepheli inside the room to the north of the heavily guarded Stormveil Castle courtyard.
  • Exhaust her dialogue so that she offers her help in fighting Godrick the Grafted.
  • (Optional) Before you go through the gold fog door, there is a summoning sign next to it that you can use to summon Nepheli.
    • Regardless if you are playing online or offline, you can still use her summoning sign.
  • After defeating Godrick, she moves to the room outside the library in Roundtable Hold. Speak to her and exhaust her dialogue. 
    • She won't move here if you didn't talk to Gideon Ofnir at all yet. Talk to him and reload at the site of grace and she will appear.
    • You must also rest at the Godrick the Grafted site of grace for her to appear at the Hold.
    • She'll then reward you with the Arsenal Charm.

 Seluvis's Potion

  • Finish her quest above, or skip it. Either way this quest will be doable. You must meet her at the Roundtable Hold once.
    • Note: If you offer her Seluvis's potion when meeting her in the Roundtable Hold the first time, she will refuse to take it. Once she returns to the Roundtable Hold from the Village of the Albinaurics, you can offer it again by speaking to Gideon about her despair.
  • Speak to Preceptor Seluvis and receive the quest.
    • If Seluvis is dead, you can continue on with the quest starting from the next step.
  • Find Nepheli at the Village Of The Albinaurics, exhaust her dialogue, and defeat the elite enemy Omenkiller which can be found on the other side of the bridge above her.
  • Return to the Roundtable Hold and find Nepheli downstairs, next to the first fog wall. Speak to her.
  • Speak to Gideon Ofnir and ask him about Nepheli.
    • If the player has the potion, he will offer you a choice: either give him the potion so that he can dispose of it, or give it to Nepheli. If it is given to Nepheli, she will become unresponsive and leave. She can then be found in Seluvis's secret room, turned into a puppet.
      • Alternatively, the potion can be given to Dung Eater when he is encountered in Roundtable Hold after obtaining a Seedbed Curse. This will allow you to obtain the Dung Eater Puppet summon later. Note that doing so will end Dung Eater's questline and prevent you from getting the Blessing of Despair ending.
      • Afterward, you can return to Preceptor Seluvis to complete his portion of the quest.
    • If the player does not have the potion, the quest progresses along the line where Nepheli does not take the potion.
      • This happens if Seluvis is dead and the player found Nepheli at the Albinauric Village and killed the Omen Killer having never received the quest from Seluvis. This can still happen if Seluvis is still alive.
  • The Stormhawk King found in the Chapel of Anticipation can be given to Nepheli in Roundtable Hold, provided she did not take Seluvis's Potion.
  • Roderika's questline must be progressed to the point where she can upgrade spirit ashes, before you can give Nepheli the Stormhawk King ashes.

Lord of Limgrave

  • After completing the quest above by not giving Nepheli Seluvis's Potion, you must progress Kenneth Haight's quest to the point where he's in Fort Haight saying he has to look for a fitting lord to rule Limgrave.
  • After defeating Morgott and talking to Gideon about helping Nepheli get back on her feet, you can find Nepheli, Kenneth, and Gostoc in the Stormveil Castle throne room near the Godrick the Grafted site of grace. If they do not appear, spawn from the Godrick the Grafted site of grace and rest at the Secluded Cell site of grace (do not merely teleport to it), which may fix the issue. (If this doesn't work, try the same in reverse: travel to Secluded Cell and rest there, then run to Godrick and rest again there. Also, you can try going back to Fort Haight, where Kenneth Haight usually stands, which might trigger him and Nepheli to move to the throne room.)
    • The quest will still advance if either Kenneth or Gostoc is dead.
    • Warning: Killing Gideon prevents this dialogue and results in Nepheli dying where she is at the time, leaving her items behind.
    • If all requirements have been met and the NPCs have still not moved to Godrick's throne room, rest at the Lake-Facing Cliff site of grace. 
    • Rewards: Nepheli will give the player an Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone at the end of her questline. She can also be summoned for the fight with Godfrey, First Elden Lord in Leyndell, Ashen Capital.
    • An additional Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone will be sold by Gatekeeper Gostoc for 20,000 Runes. (Not applicable to his bell bearing if he was killed.)

 

Dialogue: Nepheli Loux

Introduction

  • "Be proud. You were a fine warrior.
    Your only mistake was your choice of master.
    Let the winds lift you, to a higher place."

When attacked

  • I see. You are but a simple villain. Let the scars remind you; this lesson comes from Nepheli Loux!
  • (On player kill) You wouldn't even register as a threat to father. Hurry up and die.

When killed

  • Father... I am slain. Please...become Elden Lord...

Speaking to Nepheli

  • "Well, who do we have here?
    Tarnished, are you? Clearly not one of Godrick's lot.
    I am Nepehli Loux.. Tarnished and warrior, like you.
    I'm here by decree of my father.
    How utterly repellant this is...
    This "grafting" of Godrick's ill befits a Lord.
    He's tainted the very winds."
  • "If you intend to challenge Godrick,
    I ask you call upon me.
    The winds run could with his deeds.
    I'm certain father would permit me aid the fight."

Small Talk

  • "Apologies, but I've idled long enough.
    As fellow Tarnished we must each follow our own guidance. Down whatever road takes us to the throne of Elden Lord.

At the Roundtable

  • "You again...
    I thought you'd receive a summons to the Roundtable.
    Nepheli Loux. We met at Stormveil.
    I'm glad to see you here. I have something for you.
    I found it in Godrick's grafting grounds.
    You defeated him. You should have it. Make good use of it. I don't intend to make a habit of scavenging corpses."
    [Hands you x1 Arsenal Charm]
  • "Ah yes. I wonder if you've met my foster father?
    He's in his study. The room Ensha's guarding just over there.
    If you haven't already, I advise you introduce yourself.
    Father is the leader of the Roundtable.
    I'm sure talking to him will be worth your while."
  • "It's about time I headed off.
    I'll see you again, warrior, should the fates deign it."

At the Village of the Albinaurics

  • Oh, it's you... Well, what do you make of it? What's happened to this village?
    I witnessed a sight much the same, in my infancy.
    The oppression of the weak. Murder and pillage unchecked.
    A waking nightmare, made by men.

  • But this time, I'm a woman grown.
    And though the suffering cannot be undone, I can still mete out justice.
    Justice to the oppressors.
    Let the scars I carve remind them. I am Nepheli Loux, Warrior.

At the Roundtable Hold after defeating the boss of the Village of the Albinaurics

  • Ah, you... Please, leave me be. It's pathetic, I know, but I...need to think.
  • (After speaking to Gideon)
    ...So you know already, do you? Right. It's true. My father cast me out.
    For indulging my emotions. Forgetting the mission. Punishment for offing his pawns.
    Father...rather, Lord Gideon has offered me guidance all my life.
    I would have done anything for him, to place him on the throne of Elden Lord.
    And yet I... Though it was not my intent... I betrayed him...
  • I...can no longer trust in father... To think he'd order his men to enact such tragedy... Where is the justice he purports, in that?
    He once told me that if he became Elden Lord, he would never allow the downtrodden to be cheated ever again.
    Was he simply lying to me?
  • No, no, no... How could I say that? Father has always given me his guidance... And now...I've lost it...

After giving her the Stormhawk King

  • "In this ash, I can smell the ancient storm.
    It reminds me of my first hawk."
  • I'm... not like Roderika. I don't feel the presence of spirits, let alone see them.
    Still, this ash... It reminds me of my first hawk. Thank you

 At Stormveil Castle throne room

  • "It's been some time. I must thank you, for your aid.
    I told father I would be with him no longer.
    I remembered the vow I took when I first became a warrior, so many moons ago.
    This land is much like the one from which I hail.
    I will call upon the storm, to drive away the foulness that has settled on the winds."
  • "Again, I am Nepheli Loux. Warrior.
    Some call me by the title of Lady, but I remain the same woman underneath.
    Though I have now abandoned my former guidance.
    I cannot express how much you've helped me.
    [Hands you x1 Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone]
    Should you become Elden Lord. I would gladly lighten your burden."
  • "Farewell, fellow warrior. I will remain, to summon the storm.
    But your guidance, and your fight... Surely lie elsewhere."

      There's another way to accidentally break her quest. If you burn the Erdtree, AND you've collected all 5 Seedbed Curses, then you can't give the potion to anyone BUT Nephali. Gideon will be gone, and talking to Dung Eater will give him ALL the seedbed curses at once, killing him so he can't take the potion either.

      Obviously you can avoid giving it to her but it still leaves you with no way to advance her quest.

        Anon 11th Nov 21:09 is wrong about those steps needing to be followed to get Nepheli, Haight and Gostoc together in the throne room. I've just been given one ancient dragon stone by Nepheli and bought one from Gostoc. I defeated Morgott and tried to pass through the thorn barrier and I have activated numerous grace checkpoints at mountaintops of the giants but I have not spoken to Enia or Gideon and I have not had any dialogue options from Melina regarding the cardinal sin or her being the kindling.

        • Anonymous

          If you can't get them all together, make sure of the following:
          -You defeated Morgott
          -You were warded off by the eardtree
          -You Spoke to Enia and exhausted her Dialogue about the cardinal sin
          -You spoke to Gideon
          -You spoke to Melina to the point where she tells you not to worry about the kindling (Basicly telling you to set her on fire without any issues)
          This happened at the Seluded Cell Side of Grace, I hope this helps my fellow tarnished!

            Okay i can't find info on this. So I've completed her questline, and pretty much everybody's that doesn't involve Farum Azula and beyond, and have almost everything done in those areas. I have been farming enemies for the remainder of weapons, and had to buy a fist from Gostoc. I talked to Nepheli just because and she said "ill stay here to call the storm" or something like that as her end speech. Fast forward- more farming - go back to Gostoc for a shield i dont have... Nepheli is gone from the throne room, and there's two Stormhawk Axe's in her place. Anybody know if these means she died as a bug or did i just not exhaust dialogue all the way? Or is this new?

              The wiki states that Nephili will not show up at the Hold until Godrick is defeated, except, she just did, in my game. I only spoke to her in that room outside the heavily guarded entrance, where you see her first. didnt fight godrick, but moved on to liurna, found Ranni again, and suddenly Nephili was at the hold! and when i reloaded, she was gone. whelp, guess i wont get her help with godrick, or the arsenal charm???

                Im trying to give her sulivans potion after i beat the omenkiller, but the only option it gives me is to leave?

                • Anonymous

                  She doesn't say anything while helping you fight who I assume is her father? I completely missed that you can summon her to that fight and did it without her, but it'd be interesting to know if they interact at all.

                  • Anonymous

                    If people are still struggling with getting Nephelli, Kenneth and Gostoc to move to the throne room, here's the events i did to make them move, Progress all their qustlines to when they're all supposed to move to the throne room, then progress through the game until you defeat Morgott in Layndell (I only put this here because i know some people may get a little confused between Margit in stormvail castle and Morgott in Layndell) Then fast travel to the grace called Secluded Cell in Stormvail Castle, Rest at it then run over to Godrick The grafted grace site (Don't fast travel) then rest at it, hopefully now you should see Gostoc is nowhere to be seen, finally go check the throne room for all 3 NPC's, hope this clears some things up for people

                      Ok so the point of failure is no longer an issue i burned the erdtree then

                      Figured out i needed to restore the rune in limgrave divine tower

                      Note i killed gostic and kenneth (got a golden seed from kenneth)

                      The moment i talked to her foster father (he previously said talk to albinech woman) but know said the she is my foster daughter and then ported to secluded cell rested and neph was sirting in the throne did her speech then second time talked to her gave me the ancient smithing stone

                        I tried everything people had mentioned after giving Nephali the Ash, but her and Kenneth were not going to Godrick's throne.

                        It only progressed for me after opening another Belfry.

                        Hope this helps.

                          This wiki is confusing. The sequence for me is kill Morgott, talk to gideon about not able to get to the tree (not about nephelli), rest at secluded cell, Melina will talk to you abt main quest, then gostoc and rest will be in the castle. when u talk to gideon he will thank u for helping nephelli

                            I was stuck in her questline. She was staying at the Round Table, talking about the ash of the Stormhawk. I beat the game, got an ending, and she was still here. All I had to do is teleport to the Secluded Cell site of grace, and rest here. then I went (not teleported) to the Godrick the Grafted site of grace (Gostock was still here, kicking) and then I rested to that site of grace. and I saw Gostock was gone, and every NPC were on the throne room.

                            so:
                            1. teleport to Secluded Cell site of grace
                            2. rest
                            3. go to Godrick the Grafted site of grace
                            4. rest

                                What the wiki says cannot possibly be correct, I followed meticulously every step to the point when Gideon should give me a dialogue option "helping Nepheli get back on her feet" which he doesn't. Nepheli is still talking about her first hawk, Kenneth is still looking for someone with proper lineage, Gostoc apparently still isn't done with kicking the king of all that is golden, Morgott is very dead, Gideon has the potion and doesn't feel like doing anything with it yet (which is fine, Seluvis's time will come), ofc Roderika is able to upgrade spirit ashes... I really don't see it and nothing obvious comes to my mind. Anyway either this questline is bugged or the wiki is wrong. If you have any idea what could be the issue here, I would be very happy to hear anything useful !

                                  She Wont spawn unless you talk to gideon in roundtable, exhaust his dialogue, and rest at the table. You should now see gideons door open and nepheli just outside to the right.

                                      Can confirm, trying a lot of things didn't work but for some reason teleporting to and then resting at secluded cell Grace moved all the NPCs after completing all the steps.

I killed morgott but I hadn't gotten around to giving dung eater the potion yet. I did not speak to gideon about the potion at all because I was always intending to give it to dung eater. I have recently given him the potion and I have his puppet. The only dialogue options I get with gideon is for unlocated demi-gods. I also can't see any sign of nephelli on my map. So I'm basically f**ked then for this NPC quest yes?

                                                          One thing learned. You could be level 300 and have a +9 weapon and be far from overpowered. A +25 weapon at level 50 is a lot more powerful.

                                                            How the hell do you get her to drink the potion? I gave it to her, she said she didn't need it, then never drank it. Honestly so tired of these quest layout. It's not aging well at all.

                                                              I like to think that Nepheli Loux goes on to survive and given she's strongly suggested to be Godfrey's Daughter, she'll have the capability to live for near eternity and harbour her strength into that of godly renown. Similar to Godfrey and his lion I believe the tipping point into God like status will be when she one day gains complete control of the storm king, who we know she shares a connection with, and merges with him becoming the godly stormhawk queen hinted at via her weapons. Fingers crossed we get a sequel or atleast lots of dlc's!

                                                                What's this? A genuinely good character in a Miyazaki game that (by your choice choice) doesn't meet a depressing end?

                                                                I'm stunned.

                                                                  You can still complete her Lord of Limgrave quest with both Kenneth and Gostoc dead. At least as of 1.05. In this instance: Kenneth was at the point of saying he needed to find a lord but was killed before Nepheli was given her stormhawk ashes and before the potion was disposed of via Gideon. Gostoc had been killed after defeating Godrick and was still stomping on Godrick's head. Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone was still awarded.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

Her questline doesn't look like interrupted in any way. You just completely skip meeting in Stormveil Castle

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

If you did this, you can now do all steps to giver her the potion, like talking to Gideon, then to her, then go to the village under the bridge, then talk to them again, etc., and NOW the potion will be still avaliable.

                                                                            • Anonymous

I defeated Maliketh before finding the Stormhawk ashes and before her quest was patched, so I didn't know that she can become a lord after the quest is patched and you shouldn't defeat Maliketh before that.

                                                                              I don't care about thee quest rewards, I just wanted her to survive because she was my favourite NPC in the game

She didn't do anything to deserve lordship over Stormveil either, it's just given to her. it's a real shame because she could have been the perfect waifu

                                                                                  • if youre past morgott and none of them want to move, try warping to the Secluded Cell grace outside Godricks arena, check to see if Gostoc's name is still inside the arena on the map, sit again, made it disappear and they all moved like a flash mob into the throne room

                                                                                      Nepheli wasn't appearing in the Village of Albinaurics for me until I spoke to Albus, received the half of the medallion and killed Ensha.
                                                                                      The guide doesn't say anything about doing any of this, it just says go to the Village of Albinaurics, which is only part of the requirement for Nepheli to move there from Roundtable Hold.
                                                                                      She will NOT go to the village until AFTER you kill Ensha, which requires you to have received at least half of Haligtree Secret Medallion.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        If you're having trouble getting the NPCs to go to the throne room, anytime after you beat Morgott you then have to go talk to Nepheli and Kenneth again regardless if you've completed all the steps and their dialog before. On multiple playthroughs this is what I had to do.

                                                                                        • I am not 100% on this BUT I THINK that Pidia is the real puppet master.

                                                                                          For example if you try to give the potion to Nepheli AFTER you have gotten the Deloris puppet you will not be given an option to give it to her.

                                                                                          I do not know if the same is true of Dung eater, but at least for Nepheli the option does not seem to be there after Pidia is dead. If that is the case it does make sense as creating puppets is not a common activity and as such would likely be an obscure art.

                                                                                          It is regrettable because here I sit with a dispondant girl doubting her very existence and I can do nothing to make her MY thrall. Even with the potion in hand.

                                                                                          So It seems the potion is not what makes the puppet. The potion only acts as a hypnosis to get the drinker to willingly come to Pidia. At least in the case of Nepheli. Once at the tower, Pidia goes to work turning the drinker into a puppet.

                                                                                          Again, not 100% on this, but this has been my observation.

                                                                                          • I did NOT reach Crumbling Farum Azula (the farther grace reached is Forbidden Lands) and I she moved to the throne room anyway. I'm not sure but looks like you need to get rid of the Seluvis Potion (giving it to Dung Eater or Gideon)

                                                                                            • Anonymous

Nepheli accepted the ashes, but now the dialogue with Gideon is no longer available and she won't move from the Roundtable to Stormveil (I have defeated Morgott). Did I just randomly mess up the quest for doing dialogues in the wrong order? :T

None of the other “fixes” helped, so try just quitting if it’s not working for you as well.

However, the trio didn't gather at the Stormveil throne room until I have spoken to Melina about kindling at the Forbidden Lands grace.

First is when she gives you the Rold Medallion in Morgott's room at Grace. The second was when I was going to Stormveil trying to get them to show up. I passed time at the Grace. Melina showed up and told me to go to the Great Forge, and then they were in the throne room. This was AFTER I had talked to Enia at Roundtable and she told me to go there as well after asking about burning the impenetrable thorns. So maybe that is the order; Kill Morgott; talk to Melina 1; Talk to Enia; Talk to Melina 2.

I can't say for certain this was the trigger, but i had rested there before after killing Morgott (and doing the other things mentioned).

I've been through this whole thing twice already and nobody ever appears in the throne room. Kenneth is still there, I've killed the bosses ... I've given the stormhawk to Nephalie... nothing happens. I've travelled to the ****ing kings site and then clicked on the private room. NOTHING. This is my second playthrough and none of this **** happens.

All supposed prerequisites mentioned above were completed. Messed around for a few hours tonight, did some backtracking and something triggered her to move to the throne room... the only things I did worth noting were that I found Pidia's corpse in Caria Manor, killed the Black Knife Assassin in Altus Plateau & found/talked to Boc in the Capital. I assume finding Pidia did it since that stems from Seluvis' quest.

Kenneth is in the throne room with the "I share command of the castle with the lady..." dialog. But Nepheli isn't here, I even found the 2 stormhawk axes on the throne. I didn't kill her of course.
                                                                                                                              Why would Kenneth have this dialog if she's dead, or not here ? is she dead ? Is this a bug ?
                                                                                                                              For info I killed Gostoc way earlier, now i'm clearing Farum Azula, I feel this quest is lost on this playthrough.

Instead, if you head directly east of the village (on the map) you will find her resting at the first tree your cursor intersects with. Hope this gets fixed!

It just happened to me, that she left her axes, or dropped items suggests that she is dead. If you don’t give her the bird ashes, she prob offs herself.

I killed Kenneth on accident after finishing his questline til where he says he needs to go find a new lord of Stormveil or whatever. I was talking to him when a monster started attacking us and i panicked and attacked Kenneth. I killed him so I could google if I can undo aggro... which would've been possible if I hadn't just freakin' killed him just then! Damn it!! Killed Gostoc because I hate him for stealing my runes... wish I knew he was a source for a +25 stone.

After that I did teleport to fort Haight to go and see Kenneth but he was gone, at that point teleported to the Godrick the Grafted site of grace and did go sit at the Secluded Cell site of grace without teleporting as recomended and they all moved to the Throne room.

Just beat Morgott, and rest at the grace in front of the throne room of Stormveil and they'll move after you complete all the steps for Kenneth and Nepheli.

Resting at Godrick grace wasnt enough. After killing Morgott, Gostoc was standing around kicking Godrick's severed head like usual BUT was able to sell to me, except WITHOUT the Dragon stone (until he finally moved to throne room)

I had also talked to Nephali downstairs at RTH and Kenneth at his castle multiple times prior to this to try and get them to move. In fact without this page I would not have known they were supposed to do anything else. I had seen something on Reddit about Gostoc selling an ancient dragon smithing stone later in the game and it was just never happening so I searched for an explanation and found this page.
