Smough relished his title as executioner, so much so that he ground the bones of his victims into his feed. He desired to be a part of Gwyn's Knights, but was rejected due to his apparent gleeful love of his work as an executioner as well as his cannibalistic behavior.
— Smough's Lore


Executioner Smough was the last knight left to defend the Cathedral of Anor Londo, home of the Gods, after Dragonslayer Ornstein took his eventual leave. Smough was, in fact, a cannibal, grinding the victims of his job of Executioner into his meals. This behavior is what kept him from joining Gwyn's Knights.

A theory as to why Smough was indeed trusted with the protection of the cathedral was that he and Ornstein were somehow undead- making him a useful tool for the Gods, despite his cannibalism.
