Have you heard of...Trusty Patches? If ever a man has rubbed me up the wrong way! If he ever comes around again, I swear, I'll have his hide!
Patches could possibly be a reference to the character "Patch the Good Luck" from Armored Core: For Answer, which was also developed by From Software. Both Patches and Patch the Good Luck are cowardly, use ambushes and are quick to grovel when placed at a disadvantage.
