Stockpile Thomas is an NPC in Demon's Souls and Demon's Souls Remake. NPCs are the various characters that are encountered by the player throughout their journey. NPCs provide information, others are quest givers, while some are categorized as Merchants and/or Blacksmiths whom you can trade with or request for certain services.


Stockpile Thomas is a widower whose family was killed during the setting in of the deep fog; his wife and daughter were either slain or turned into Demons, but Thomas, unwilling to dwell on the past, has made his home in the Nexus and is willing to store any and all items the player is carrying.

In the Boletarian Palace you find two hung corpses, one holding the Jade Hair Ornament and the other the old raggedy robes set. Due to Thomas' dialogue when you give him the ornament it becomes clear that these corpses very likely were his wife and daughter. The other corpse is holding the same armor set (except for the hat) as Yuria suggesting that his wife and/or daughter was a witch and that was probably the main reason for their execution.


Stockpile Thomas Information

  • Stores any and all unused equipment for the player
  • Weapon upgrades can be made at Blacksmith Boldwin and Blacksmith Ed while Stockpile holds on to the players ore. You don't need to carry the stones to the blacksmiths for them to use it — just leave it with Thomas.
  • He can hold up to 99 of stackable items like upgrade stones, grass, spice, turpentine, etc., and up to 999 of each arrow type.
  • You can trade him the Jade Hair Ornament from Boletarian Palace in exchange for a Ring of Herculean Strength (increases carry weight). You must talk to him to exhaust his other dialog, before he will offer to make the exchange. Make sure you have the Jade Hair Ornament in your own inventory. It's a good idea to always have this Ring with you (not necessarily equipped) so you don't lose dropped items because of Carrying Overweight. (If you try to grab an item and it says you are overweight just equip the ring, if you leave the item there and go back to Nexus the item will be lost forever).
  • Killing him will make it impossible to access any items he was holding until your next playthrough. He also drops the Ring of Herculean Strength when killed, unless you already traded him the Jade Hair Ornament for it.

Stockpile Thomas Dialogue

First encounter

  • I'm Stockpile Thomas.
    When the Scourge came, I didn't know what hit me. When I came to, I found myself here, in the Nexus.
    My wife and daughter fell victim to the Demons. But I would be worthless in battle.
    At the very least, I hope to lend my assistance to you brave slayers of Demons.
    I would be happy to lighten your load and look after any excess baggage.
    Rest assured. Your goods are safe and sound with me.
    Best of luck to you!
  • When the Scourge came, I abandoned my wife and daughter, and fled like a madman.
    When I came to, I was in the Nexus. I haven't dared venture outside these walls since.
    I wish I could do more, but I am ignorant of the world beyond these walls.
  • That candle maiden cared for me during my first days in the Nexus.
    She says very little, but has a kind heart. She's just the age my young daughter would have been.
    The poor, poor girl… trapped here with her eyes occluded by wax.
    If only something could be done to help her.

Jade Hairpin

  • Th-Th-That hairpin! That belongs to my daughter!
    Then, she didn't make it after all… my dearest little baby… may she rest in peace…
    May I ask you a favour?
    Would you mind giving up that hairpin? I'd like to have it in memory of my daughter.
  • No
  • Yes, yes, of course… You are the one who found it, it should remain yours.
    Hahaha, please, please forgive me. I didn't mean to get emotional. Hahahaha…
  • Yes
  • You're a saint! Thank you, thank you so much!
    Oh, I mustn't forget… It's not much, but please accept this as thanks.
    I'm a bit ashamed to say, but I found it one day, discarded on the main road.
    But it seems to possess a strange power.
    Anyway, I feel that you should have it. It will be happier in your hands.

After defeating another boss

  • Saints, Sages, and all manner of wise men watch over the halls of this Nexus.
    This rejuvenating sanctorium is a fine place for the slayers of Demons to rest their weary bones.
    I, too, must contribute how I can, for we are indebted to our honourable defenders.

After defeating another boss

  • What is the world like outside the Nexus?
    With brave souls like you confronting these vile Demons, perhaps it won't be long before things return to normal.
    At least, that is what we are all praying for…

After defeating another boss

  • Sometimes I stop and wonder how I ended up in the Nexus in the first place.
    Why didn't I protect my wife and daughter, even if it meant being slain by the Demons?
    Hahahah, please forgive me. I am over it now.

After defeating yet another boss

  • How do you do it? I can't imagine what it takes to slay a Demon…
    If only I could assist in this fight…


  • Hello again. I'm keeping a close watch on your belongings. Rest assured.
  • Thank goodness you are safe! I was worried sick about you.

When leaving

  • You have a heart of gold. Don't let them take it from you.
  • We are indebted to you, for you fight on our behalf.

When running off and returning

  • Wait, where are you going?
    • What was that about? Running off like that.

When attacked

  • What on earth has come over you? In God's name, stop!

      Everyone loves this guy. But he abandoned his wife and child to save his own skin. Only reason I dont hang him from the chains his wife and daughter hang from is because i like watching him suffer. **** this dude seriously.

        I didn’t give him the ornament in ng+ because I like to do as many things as I can in different ways and I felt bad but then remembered that he’s the storage person so in my head canon I picture him taking it out of storage while I’m not in the nexus for comfort.

          not gonna lie, if it weren't for Thomas I would've given up on my ng+ walkthrough. he's the type of dude that you don't want to let his high hopes of you down.

            If you kill him, does the "Send to Storage" option disappear? Toying with killing him to get Mephisto to appear. Fine with not being able to recover any items as I only have Old One and Mephisto to go before NG+, but would not want to lose items due to it (especially Foe's ring).
