-If you open the door to Havel
's cellar from the Darkroot Basin and turn the camera just right, you can see him actually moving and positioning himself behind the door. It's probably nothing new, but I found it funny that him "ambushing" the player is really intentional by Havel, and not just due to him being placed close to the door by the devs and attacking on sight like a regular mook. Quite sneaky for a guy in that armor of his!
-Petrus of Thorolund
's stash behind him at the Firelink Shrine indicating how much of a sinister bastard he is early on, if you pay attention to details and connect the dots. I love this game for stuff like that, even though Peturs alongside Lautrec top the leadership board of my most hated NPCs. The slaughtering of cute young women by seemingly harmless people is a bit overused a concept in this game - my overprotective older brother compulsion does not approve!

Otherwise it could have been useful.
I'm probably yet too inexperienced to properly judge when it comes to long-term usefulness of certain weapons, but I have to say, I'm kinda puzzled now.
This weapon is actually pure bliss for me - I have completed the game once now (with a fast-roll, ranged/critical-hits-only-melee kind of character), and it outmatches any dagger I have found in basically everything. A maxed-out Bandit's Knife was quite deadly already, but I have yet to find an enemy (where applicable) who gets up again after a successful Riposte or even Backstab with that thing.
For a "regular" melee combatant, of course its up-front-damage is outmatched by any basic sword, but if judged for what it is intended for (dirty fighting, like all the daggers), is it really that horrible on higher levels? That's a legitimate question, having only completed NG the very first time a week ago, and playing a brand new character with SL 57 currently.
