      So many people are still speculating the significance of the egg, but I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone suggest it might be the egg that Midir came from. If you look not-all-that-closely, the interior of the egg matches the appearance of Midir's soul, with a sort of ring of stone surrounding a gaping black hole (which of course matches the eclipse, the Dark Sign, the Dark Sigils, and the hole bored into Hollows). Gwyn established the Ringed City, offered his youngest daughter, and charged Midir with battling mankind all around the same time, placing a seal on mankind even after he and his family perished. I don't imagine Gwyn would have been able to just enlist a random dragon in his service considering the violence he wrought upon their kind, so it makes more sense to me that Midir was raised from birth as a servant of the gods--and like the Spears of the Church, Gwyn tactfully kept the dragon blind to his true ambitions, caring not whether they fell to darkness in the process of defending the gods.

        I think her spell reaches much further as only until the borders of the RInged City. When the game starts and we see the intro we see pilgrems wandering in a desolated world like the one we see after her spell is broken. That is how our world really looks alike I think. But when we start it is still green and normal looking. There is no desert nowhere. Thats already the illusion of Fillianore. It could also be the ultimate reason for the Pus of Man. Fillianore preserves the look but under the surface the abyss, the dark, rottens the world further and further from the inside. And sometimes this dark beomes too strong and breaks through the illusion. We see this in the Ringed City in form of the dark lake and it also happens in the rest of the world with the Pus of Man. Why the illusion? Maybe to keep a path intact that guides an Ash to the Kiln of the First Flame even after the land has fallen in ruin. And to keep the chosen one away from the Dark Soul.

          Actually when we wake her up, she puts the Ashen one into a very powerful slumber (that bright white light we see) and we wake up after eons passed, at the end of time... just in time to recover the dark soul from Gael, who has gathered all the blood that contained it and is now waiting for the last shard, ours.

            Not killable?, well, you are the reason of her death, maybe her end is inevitable, but at least she can still alive - sleeping.

              Didn't see anyone mention this, but she is almost certainly a reference/homage to the girl in the anime Angel's Egg (which was obviously one of the inspirations for all of dark souls).

                As she is another beautiful goddess you can seemingly repeat seeing, has anyone tried to kill her? I'm curious if she just wakes up and I don't have the game, but interested in the lore, or if it's some kind of secret.

                  When first heard of her in the dlc I was hoping she was the pygmy that found the dark soul. Thought that would be kinda cool.

                    The ringed city is the egg, look around, you're in a shell, with crystals in it just like the concept art depicts.
                    Illusion? Yep, as you fly in you pass through some thick turbulent yellow clouds, then the sky is just yellow, like a golden sorcery of Oolacile, and the darksign is gone from the sun.
                    It's probably been said before, Im not trying to sound overconfident about the theory, just telling you my view of things.

                      I think the thing Filianore's is clenching, judging by the artbook, is not an egg, but a geode. Google them, they are some sort of mineral formation with a rocky exterior and its insides hollow and full of crystals. Maybe it is were the dark soul was found. It would make sense, since its shell is pale like a soul and its hollow core (which would have been housing pure darkness in the middle of the first flame) is full of curse crystals

                        I think Filianore is the mother of painted woman.
                        And the egg is a dragonegg(the painted woman).
                        I am 100% sure that this is the first firekeeper. We know that there is ton of firekeeper corpses in firelink and we know that everytime a firekeeper is summoned, her eyes is missing, like Filianore.
                        You can even see signs of darkness in Filianores face. Can anyone figure out the tower which you cannot enter, please.

                          All I ever wanted was a real big boobed goddess to serve yet she too was an illusion.

                          I literally cried when I saw her true dryed dead form.

                          Damn you Fromsoft, damn you.

                            if you go back to the room in the (past??? not ruined city) after talking to her she is missing, but her body is still in the (future??? ruined) world. does that mean she teleports rather than time travels???

                              Her name can be translated to "Daughter of the Sun". The first part, 'filia' means daughter in Latin, and 'nore' means sun in Elvish. See? Which means she is a daughter of Gwyn.

                                Who the fudge is this woman? and what is she holding in her arms?
                                Why is she locked away high up in the tower, behind the Halflight boss ?
                                NANDAYOO ??

                                  I wonder if the Eyes of a Fire Keeper are hers.

                                  From the description the eyes are that of the of the first Fire Keeper.

                                  Her eyes removed as she saw things she should not have seen?

                                    My theory: The pygmy we meet next to the city's first bonfire states her slumber is a "lid" of sorts. By that description her very existence can be alluded to "Pandora's box". As she sleeps, so does the rest of the city remain separated from time. This would explain why the city is so brightly lit despite the true "sun" being on the verge of going out. So long as she stays asleep, things will not age within the city, hence why everything still looks relatively new.

                                    Once she awakens, all of time catches up to her and the city itself is pulled into its proper time and place at the world's end. Here at the worlds end is where the Pygmy Royalty was hidden by Gwyn so that the power of the Dark Soul will not spread over the land, nor will it be stolen by a greedy human... until now.
