"Penitent One... Whom shall I watch over now?"

Cleofás is found in the Mother of Mothers, overlooking Socorro, The Lady of the Perpetual Agony.

In his youth he was a member of the Order of the True Burial and an old friend of Lvdovico, but he left when he heard words of the Miracle manifesting, which may be referring to Socorro.

Quest: Rebirth
Speaking with Cleofas and Socorro will start a quest that can end with different results and different rewards depending of the actions of the Penitent One:

The first step is to make Socorro leave the room. It can be done in two different ways and it changes Cleofas' actions afterwards.

Option 1 (Rebirth): Give Socorro the three Marks of Refuge by defeating the three Soldiers of the Anointed Legion in the Archcathedral Rooftops. Doing so will make Cleofas go to the rooftops, left from the first Shrine when entered the Archcathedral Rooftop from Mother of Mothers. DO NOT GO TO HIS ROOM IN THE ROOFTOPS.

After giving the 3 Marks of Refuges, DO NOT find Cleofas at the rooftop or you will be locked out of the achievement. Talk to Lvdovico in Albero first, he will give you the Cord of the True Burying. Giving it to Cleofas then will cause him to go to Albero instead of him jumping off the roof, where he will give the Tiento to your Thorned Hairs Prayer and this unlocks the Rebirth Achievement:

Help Cleofas in his path of redemption.

Option 2: If the Penitent One ends Socorro's suffering, Cleofas will be found in a jail cell in the Wall of the Holy Prohibitions that requires the Key of the Inquisitor to open.

If he is not given the item, after exhausting his dialogue and leaving the room, he will commit suicide. On the other hand, if he is given the item he'll move to the Archcathedral Rooftops, to the left of the first Prie Dieu.

If Cleofas commits suicide by jumping from the Archcathedral Rooftops, Redento will comment on him when he reaches the Patio of the Silent Steps, earning the Crossing Souls Achievement:

Cleofas' suicide does not provide the prayer reward and the achievement will not be earned if Redento has already left the Patio of the Silent Steps.

- The Lady...

- Three Penitents that communed with the Miracle clamoured for her refuge and protection.

- Those souls for which she suffered have already departed to the other side of the Dream

- Had the holy Commandent of my Lady Finished...?

- Penitent One... Whom shall i watch over now?



Relevant Dialogue[]

Lvdovico after interacting with Cleofás Then thou hast already met Cleofás...

He was once a member of this congregation. One woeful day he broke his vows, and left upon hearing the news that... a miracle had occurred.

We never heard from him again.

Please give him this. It will mean a lot to him.

"Whoever you are, I address my exhortation to you, who, renouncing your will, embrace obedience as the first key to humility."

"Only those who are whole will cross over to the other side of The Dream."

These words, pronounced by our first master, would become our illustrious Rule. We brothers, with our holy purpose of recollection and burial, will dedicate ourselves with complete devotion to such cause, it being our first thought at dawn and our last thought at bedtime.
