Relic Seeker Lemm Information

Relic Seeker Lemm and his shop can be found in a tall tower in the City of Tears, which he claims was free to be used. He specializes in uncovering antique scriptures found on relics that are scattered around Halownest. After speaking to him, he offers The Knight to trade in relics that have been found in exchange for a reasonable amount of Geo. Right after The Knight kills one of the Dreamers, he closes his shop and leaves - you can find him at the fountain of the Hollow Knight, contemplating on the likes of the statue. Speak to him and he will return to his shop.

Aye Aye. Come searching for rare items have you? Well hands off! This collection is mine and I won't be selling to grubby little wanderers.

Still, I imagine you come across many interesting items in your travels. Maybe you'd care to part with some? I'll offer a fair trade for each.


Notes & Tips

  • Relic Seeker Lemm won't cooperate with The Knight if players have the Defender's Crest Charm equipped.
  • Relic Seeker Lemm is one out of the two merchants who purchase items off from The Knight.
  • Relic Seeker Lemm mentions other Relic Seekers, though none are found in game. It is unknown if they all look like him, or if Relic Seeker is simply a hobby.
  • The description for the Void Idol is a quote from Lemm.

    • Lemm’s reaction to the Defender’s Crest is hysterical. I wish more characters noticed and reacted to it. Elderbug does too, but he is clueless of course; unlike Lemm, he doesn’t know where the smell is coming from and actually apologizes when the source of the stench is right in front of him.
