Trever is a potential companion in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. While almost all characters have a rather straightforward way of joining your roster, the steps to obtain this fella, who also happens to be Sosiel’s brother, aren’t quite obvious. Here’s our Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Trever recruitment guide to help you get this secret companion in your campaign.

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous – How to recruit Trever (secret companion)
Act 2 and Act 3: The Shield
Since Trever is a secret companion in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, the method to recruit him tends to be contextual and well-hidden. The first key moment occurs in Act 2 during the Strike From the Sky quest. As you explore the Lost Chapel, you’ll stumble upon your missing companions, including Sosiel. Around this time, he’ll also obtain Trever’s shield, the Immaculate Petal. It’s imperative that you do not lose or accidentally sell this item. As such, you’ll want to place it in one of Sosiel’s alternate equipment slots.
Moreover, once Sosiel rejoins, you’ll receive the From a Dead Woman’s Hands quest. Complete this as you see fit, but take note of some important responses:
- Lost Chapel – “This isn’t the end, you can still find those knights.”
- Drezen – “You don’t know what your brother endured in this war. Perhaps the person you once knew is gone.”
The reason for this is to imply that Trever is a broken man. Instead of Sosiel thinking that his brother is a hero, it will sow more doubt, encouraging him to look for his sibling and, perhaps, turn him back to the light.
Another notable facet to recruit Trever in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous occurs in Act 3. Sometime when you visit Drezen’s Citadel, you’re informed that a fella posing as Trever, which piques Sosiel’s curiosity. Again, complete this sidequest as you see fit, but make sure you do these steps:
- After surviving the ambush, just imprison the impostor. Don’t just execute him outright.
- When talking to the impostor, tell Sosiel: “Wait, this is only one person’s side of the story.”
- Choosing the above response leads to another task where you’ll head back to Lost Chapel. When you enter the zone, you’ll see a bunch of people camping. Reply to Sosiel with: “Your brother hoped to keep his heart pure, but he couldn’t.”
Act 4: Battlebliss Arena and Fleshmarkets
Next up, you’ll need to reach Act 4 in Alushynirra. The goals here are as follows:
- Progress the Experiencing the Bliss quest in the Battlebliss Arena, just before you duke it out with the champion (i.e., while looking for the succubi entertainers).
- Do not kill Zeklex, the promoter NPC. Come to think of it, don’t make any decisions that will cause him to get replaced.
- You may need to visit the other areas of the city, as well as skip time/rest for a bit until Sosiel wants to have a conversation with you. He’ll tell you about a slaver wearing a black mask.
- This fella is none other than Wirlong Black Mask, a slaver in the Fleshmarkets. Be forewarned that there are dialogue options, and even a Mythic Quest, that will cause him and other NPCs to turn hostile. It’s imperative that you avoid doing that until you’re able talk to him with Sosiel in your party. This lets you learn Trever is a gladiator.
- Speak with Zeklex in Battlebliss Arena about this discovery.
Reunited in the Arena
Once you learn about Trever’s fate, you can complete the Battlebliss Arena quest to become the champion. Zeklex will then present an option for Sosiel to face Trever. Here’s how the devout cleric needs to reply:
- “Trever? Brother, is that you?”
- [Sosiel raises his shield] – You’ll get this option if the Immaculate Petal is in one of Sosiel’s equipment slots.
- “Trever, what have they done to you? You’re safe now. Let’s go home.”
The siblings will then fight off all the demons automatically. This will finally let you recruit Trever as a secret companion in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. His feats and perks are far from ideal. Likewise, since you get him fairly late in the campaign, you’d hardly be able to make the necessary changes when you respec. He also doesn’t have a companion quest, as he’s tied to Sosiel’s. But, hey, at the very least, you got him in your squad.
