What To Do With The Tortured Prisoner In Lords Of the Fallen

Lords Of The Fallen features various characters you’ll encounter on your quest to cleanse the beacons, and some of them might need your assistance. Sometimes, they won’t directly ask for help, making it a bit of a mystery; that’s just how games like this are designed to add extra depth and challenge.

Take the Tortured Prisoner, for instance. She’s trapped behind a locked cell, and when you try to interact with her, you won’t get any spoken dialogue because she’s struggling to communicate. It can leave you unsure about what to do next.

Where To Find The Tortured Prisoner

The Tortured Prisoner is located at Skyrest Bridge, but before you can access her location, you will need to get the Skyrest Bridge Key to unlock the area where she is imprisoned.

From the key location, make your way to the end of the bridge and then head left, where you’ll see an entrance on your right. Inside, you will see there’s a locked door, but now you can use the key to unlock it.

After unlocking the door, walk across the bridge ahead of you, and then take the stairs on the left side all the way up. At the top, you’ll find a prisoner in a cell to your right; that’s the Tortured Prisoner.

When you interact with her, the Tortured Prisoner won’t speak. Instead, she’ll be trying to muffle her sounds. However, she definitely needs your help.

To help her, you must find and give her a catalyst known as the Searing Accusation, which is located in this same area.

How To Free The Tortured Prisoner

The Searing Accusation is locked away by an Umbral entity, and to unlock it, you’ll need to locate and interact with three Soulflay items. However, this can only be accomplished once you’ve entered Umbral, so be sure to get started on that first.

Soulflay Item #1

After leaving the Tortured Prisoner’s cell, return to the stairs and continue until you reach an open space to your left where you can jump to the center where there are some statues.

Once you’ve made the jump, you’ll discover the first Soulflay item just behind those statues. Don’t forget to Soulflay it before you proceed.

Soulflay Item #2

Descend from this point back to the stairs and continue downward until you reach the bridge. On the left side of the bridge, you’ll spot a Soulflay item that you can activate to bring a platform.

Once the platform is close to you, drop down onto it. Then, turn around to locate the second required Soulflay item. Remember to Soulflay it to proceed.

Soulflay Item #3

Now, after turning back, use the Soulflay item to reach the ladder in front of you. Once you’ve climbed the ladder, you’ll notice another ladder to your right.

At the top of this second ladder, you’ll see the Umbral entity right in front of you. More importantly, you’ll find the last required Soulflay item up to your right.

Soulflaying this final item will dispel the Umbral entity, granting you access to the room it was guarding. Inside, you’ll find an Umbral belly. After Soulflaying it, you’ll be able to get the Searing Accusation.

Free The Tortured Prisoner

With the Searing Accusation, return to the Tortured Prisoner. Interact with her, and you’ll see a prompt asking if you want to hand over the Searing Accusation.

Choose to give it to her, and she will express her gratitude through what appears to be joyful muffles, signifying your successful assistance.

Should you reload this area, you’ll have the opportunity to get the Tortured Prisoner’s Head Cage from her prison cell.

The Tortured Prisoner Location After You Free Her
