First encounter

Hmm...  Another one of those Unkindled, are you?
All you faceless Undead, behaving as if you deserve respect.
Hmph.  No matter.  Heed my words.
If you’ve any sense, you’ll go find a coffin to huddle up inside.
You here, in this land of Hollows, you’re like a frail maiden on the front lines.
If like the others, you’re fool enough to play the champion…
Then go on ahead, traipse right past the abandoned church.
You’ll face death, and it won’t be pretty.
Enough death to leave you broken, time after time." (chuckle)

If like the others, you're fool enough to play the champion...
Then go on ahead, traipse right past the abandoned church.
Hopeless, the whole lot of you.  Like little moths, flittering towards a flame."

After visiting Irina's cell

You like poking around in cells, do you?
How very genteel!" (chuckle)

Ah-hah, taken an interest in her, have you?
Well she's a lost cause. Couldn't even become a Fire Keeper.
After I brought her all this way, and got her all ready.
She's beyond repair, I tell you." (chuckle)

The woman's a lost cause.
Couldn't even become a Fire Keeper.
She's beyond repair I tell you." (chuckle)

After rescuing Irina of Carim

You've gone and rescued her, have you?
How very quaint, pitying creatures that are beyond help.
Very well.  I'm sick of looking after her at any rate.
I am Eygon, a knight of Carim.
I am allied to you as long as you assure the girl's safety.
And only for that long..."

What's the matter?  My terms are very simple.
I am allied to you for as long as you assure the girl's safety.
And only for that long..."

First encounter (if you visit Irina's cell first)
(This replaces both parts of his normal first encounter)

Hmm... Another one of those Unkindled, are you?
All you faceless Undead, behaving as if you deserve respect.
Now you're poking around in peoples' cells.
How very noble!" (chuckle)

First encounter (if you rescue Irina first)
(This skips all his previous dialogue)

Hmm... Another one of those Unkindled, are you?
All you faceless Undead, behaving as if you deserve respect.
Now you've gone and rescued the wench...
How very quaint, pitying creatures that are beyond help."
(The rest is the same as his normal rescue dialogue)

Firelink Shrine (after Abyss Watchers)

Ahh, I know you. Been some time(, since we met in person).
I just dropped in to see how she's getting on.
Now, what are you playing at with this circus?
This cesspool of doddering oldfolk and degenerates.
Couldn't be better. She must fit in perfectly here." (chuckle)


Iudex Gundyr (after he takes Irina away)

I made myself very clear.
My allegiance remained only as long as you assured the girl's safety.
This knight of Carim does not forgive betrayal.
Even a broken woman deserves her dignity..."

When you die

Remember. A knight of Carim does not forgive betrayal.
Not ever."

When he dies

(argh) Irina... This bastard/wench..."


Attacking him

What is it now!"
"Curse you, ***** fool!"

Aggroing him

Lost it, have you?
Then I'll take care of you.
As many times as it takes!"

He kills you

Stay dead this time."

You kill him

Deluded Hollow bastard...



  • Eygon of Carim is played by Grahame Fox.
  • Holds some similarity to Garl Vinland from Demon's Souls, a greathammer and shield wielding knight who guarded the maiden Astrea much like how Eygon guards Irina.
  • His weapon of choice is very similar to the Grant used by Paladin Leeroy from Dark Souls as they are both great hammers with a faith requirement and special area of effect attack. Much like Leeroy, he is summonable for a sorcerer who creates clones of himself.
  • His helm is based on ceremonial/parade helm of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V.
  • Can be summoned for dragonslayer armor even after being summoned for crystal sage. ( Summon can be found in the building to the right of the stairway leading to the boss fog on the right side just beyond the doorway ). 
  • Eygon is the second knight of Carim NPC you can ally yourself with, the first being Lautrec of Carim from Dark Souls 1. Both the knights also has a keen interest in Fire Keepers, maybe it's a cultural thing.
  • Interestingly, he uses a shield in combat, a trait that is very rare among the knights of Carim, who often uses the Parrying Dagger.
  • Within the Ringed City, past Midir and inside the tower that houses the Shared Graves Bonfire, the player will be invaded by the Moaning Knight. This knight is using the same moveset and armor as Eygon, which may lead to speculation that the invader is indeed Eygon gone hollow, or some similar knight within his order. He also drops the Blindfold mask.
  • Building from this information, one can infer that this "Moaning Knight" is the slain Eygon that stole Irina after she was corrupted by the Dark by way of corrupt miracle tomes. Thus, due to a possible player choice, Eygon is left hollowed after the ages waste away, and he guards the bonfire in a place that once held firekeepers. (huge guess)

      If you headshot him with a bow he stands up making it possible to push him down the cliff. During my latest attempt he however took no fall damage, might be a bug but didn't work as before.

        How do you get Eygon out of Firelink Shrine? Is it because I did Irina questline late and maybe possibly bugged? (Started doing it when I was looking for his summon sign in Lothric Castle)

          The Moaning Knight invades even if you turn Irina into a firekeeper (I also never killed Eygon), so his invasion has nothing to do with player choice; unfortunately, this seems to nullify to "slain Eygon" theory.

            For as rough as Eygon is, he is quite honorable. Protecting a broken woman despite her failing to fulfill her purpose of becoming a Firekeeper, and doing it while he seems very displeased and upset with that fact.

                So what, if you dont kill him there's no way of getting his Hammer and Shield? That kinda sucks, makes sense, but still sucks

                  I am having trouble getting eygon to leave his summon sign. I have talked to irina and freed her and talked to eygon after as well. I am level 48 sorcerer and have ventured some way into farron keep but have not killed the crystal sage boss, does my level effect whether or not he will leave his signature? i have not given irina any tomes or bought any miracles and cannot seem to find eygon anywhere. can someone shed some light on this?

                    I have her a dark tone but never sought the spell, will he take her away or does he do that when I buy the spell?

                      Fun Fact: The Hollows with the pots won't Aggro him. They can hit him with no consequences. He just takes it until he dies.

                      Unrelated, guess who got Mornes great Hammer and Moaning Shield at level 20?

                          Curiously, you have to give at least one Holy Divine Braille Tome to Irina to summon Eygon of Carim for Dragonslayer Armour Boss Fight. I hadn't given any tomes to Irina and I didn't see the summon sign near the boss area. I was able to summon Eygon of Carim for Crystal Sage though (without giving any tomes to Irina).

                            After defeating dragonslayer with the help from Eygon, he is dead, what happen with him? Why he is dead anyway? I think he is strongest NPC when come to tank the boss. It make me sad, he is dead for no reason.

                              So, if you give any dark tomes to Irena, even just one, he will kidnapp her and be unable to summon for the Crystal Sage.

                                You need to give a tome for him to appear and he will be on the left side in the room when your facing towards the boss.

                                  Roll a bit and he can't hit you, after all the pvp I've done lately he was no problem.<br/>I killed him for an early Greatshield for my Greatshield trolling character :)

                                    I couldnt find the sign when I was killing the crystal sage. In the end I just killed them without him cause a player phantom was waiting on me, which I found dissapointing. Where is the sign?

                                        I summoned Eygon for the fight against Dragonslayer Armor. But, his name was misspelled "Egon of Carim" in the health bar, while it was correctly spelled during the rest of the game. Does anyone know why this is?
