Irina of Carim is a NPC in Dark Souls 3. She can teach and sell Miracles to your character in a certain area of the game.


Irina of Carim Information

  • Can be killed.
  • Sells Miracles, see Items Sold below.
  • Teaches the "Prayer" gesture.
  • Accepts all divine tomes, but her questline will vary accordingly.
    • Purchasing any Dark Miracles from her causes her to fall to darkness, and be taken away by Eygon of Carim, to be protected from you.
    • Purchasing ALL Dark Miracles causes her to stop being a vendor, and initiates a gloomy dialogue. (If you speak with her whilst equipping Morne's Gauntlets, she will have more things to say.)
    • Purchasing ALL Holy Miracles instead (without buying any dark ones) turns her into a Fire Keeper.



  1. Start: You can find Irina in a cell near the entrance to the Road of Sacrifices in the Undead Settlement. She can be reached by dropping down the cliff next to Eygon of Carim or purchasing the Grave Key from the Shrine Handmaiden for 1500 souls and going through the sewers next to the Dilapidated Bridge bonfire.
  2. Once you free her and accept her services, she will relocate to Firelink Shrine. If you approach Blacksmith Andre and head down the stairs to the right, she can be found at the end of the hallway.
  3. Dark Path: If you give her the Londor Braille Divine Tome or the Deep Braille Divine Tome, and subsequently purchase any Dark Miracle  from her, Eygon will take her from you. They can then be found just after Iudex Gundyr's bonfire, and Eygon will be hostile. If you kill him, he drops Morne's Great Hammer and the Moaning Shield. If you cannot find her after killing Eygon simply warp out and back and she will be where Eygon was standing. Talk to her twice and she will return to her spot in Firelink Shrine.
    1. If you didn't buy ALL of the Dark Miracles  you can still access her inventory and buy Miracles. BUT will not trigger her Dark Dialogue.
    2. If you purchase ALL of the Dark Miracles from her she will no longer sell you Miracles. However, you can still speak with her, and must purchase and wear Morne's Gauntlets to finish the dark version of her questline. BE CAREFUL! After defeating Eygon and speaking to her once she will wake up and ask if anyone "is there."
    3. When returned to her usual spot Irina will not sell anything and will only beg the charcter to touch her. If he/she does without Morne's Gauntlets she will not recognise the touch, asking again for someone to touch her; if you're still wearing the gauntlets she'll believe that you're Eygon and will ask you to kill her, as Eygon promised. Killing her drops her ashes. 
  4. Light Path: If you instead purchase ALL the other Miracles without purchasing any Dark Miracles, she will become a Fire Keeper, and move to the bottom of the Tower outside of Firelink (the one where Blade Master was standing). If you had given her Londor Braille Divine Tome or the Deep Braille Divine Tome, but didn't purchase any Dark Miracles, these will be laying next to her on the ground. You can then give them to Karla to purchase all the Dark Miracles. After this happens, she will be able to level you up, much like the Fire Keeper inside the Shrine.




Items Sold



First encounter (Undead Settlement)

Ahh, who's there?
Is someone there, anyone?
The dark surrounds me, nibbles at my flesh.
Little creatures, they never stop biting.
So please, hold out your hand, and touch me..."

Selecting "Touch"

Ahh, yes, there you are, so close indeed.
Then I am not entirely alone, just yet.
Praise the merciful gods above... (gesture)
Oh, forgive me.
I am Irina of Carim.
I came to this land so that I might be a Fire Keeper.
Your touch has freed me from the darkness.  You are a Champion, then?
I am weak, and unfit to tend the flames.
But if it would not trouble you, might I enter into your service, instead?"

If you "Decline" her service

Ahh, yes, of course, I understand.
Even so, I thank you deeply.  For your touch.
I will never forget it, not ever."

[Talk] "Oh, sweet Champion. You still wish to converse?
Don't worry about me. I've long dealt in dark. It is my calling."

If you "Accept her service"

Oh, thank you, sweet Champion.
I shall take my vows.
I, Irina of Carim, solemnly swear to serve you."


Second encounter (Firelink Shrine)

Oh, Champion of Ash.  Welcome back.
I was not meant to be a Fire Keeper, but I am honoured to serve you beside the Bonfire.
The gods are ever-merciful.  My gratitude lies with them, and with you.
I am yours now.  Your wish is my command."

"Talk" command

You know, in my home of Carim, I was a nun.
I would be pleased to share the tales of miracles with you.
Although to be honest, I only know a few.
But if I had a divine tome, I could tell you many tales and more.
Ahh, only I cannot see…
Terribly sorry, but you'll have to find me a Divine Tome in braille."


When given Divine Tome of Carim or Lothric

Ahh, you've brought me a braille Divine Tome.
Now I can tell tales of new miracles.
Tales of the greater miracles can be quite the epics...
What fun we will have."

When given Deep or Londor Divine Tome

Oh, what's this...
Champion of Ash, this Divine Tome is forbidden...
These are dark tales that lurk deep within men... These stories would not please you...
Of course, if you insist, I will read them for you.
Only, ahh, ahh, they frighten me so.
The little creatures that nibble at me in the darkness..."

When greeted

Ahh, Champion of Ash, welcome back. Do you wish to hear a tale? You only have to ask."

When greeted (after buying a dark miracle from her)

Ahh, ahh, sweet Champion.  Where have you been?
Please, your touch…
The little creatures, how they nip and bite…"


Upon leaving

Have a pleasant journey, Champion of Ash.
I pray for your safety."

Upon leaving (after buying a dark miracle from her)

Ahh, sweet Champion.  Leaving so soon?
Please, come back in good time.
I am frightened.  Of the dark that gnaws away at me."

Upon leaving (after buying all non-dark miracles from her)

Thank you ever so much, sweet Champion.
May your solemn duty conclude in triumph."


After she moves to the tower

Oh, sweet Champion of Ash.
Let souls be your strength..."


"Talk" command (after "rescuing" her from Eygon)

Ahh, ahh, please, someone, touch me.
The dark, surrounds me, nibbles at my flesh.
Little creatures, they never stop biting.
So please, hold out your hand, and touch me..."

Selecting "Touch" (after "rescuing" her from Eygon)

Ohh, is there no one near to touch me?
Keep these things from eating away at me."

Selecting "Touch" (after "rescuing" her from Eygon and wearing Morne's Gauntlets)

Oh, you again, touch me, one last time.
And kill me, as you promised you would."


Upon death

What have you done, sweet champion of ash
I only wanted to..."

Upon death (after touching while wearing Morne's Gauntlets)

Ohh...A Knight of Carim... always true to his word..."



  • Her name is Slavic/Eastern-European form of Greek name  Ειρηνη (Eirene), derived from a word meaning "peace". This was the name of the Greek goddess who personified peace, also it was borne by several early Christian saints and is popular among Eastern Christians.
  • Voiced by Sarah Beck Mather, who also voiced Lucatiel of Mirrah in Dark Souls II.
  • Irina's feeling of darkness eating her away like insects corresponds to the item description of Fire Keeper's Soul in Dark Souls 1 
     "A Fire Keeper's soul is a draw for humanity, and held within their bosoms, below just a thin layer of skin, are swarms of humanity that writhe and squirm"
  • If you kill her while wearing the Morne set her death dialogue will be different.

      Bought deep protection from her..... eygon just took her, killed eygon, and now shes all depressed.
      Dont want to kill her, but cant do the ''good ending'' with her either.

      And she just keeps crying about the things that nible her in the darkness.

      Guess i have to do the good ending on NG+

      • 08 Apr 2017 17:06  

        I have to wonder. I think we can all agree that Eygon is at least a good friend if not even a secret lover of Irina. So...what happend to Irina that she ended up in the this sorry state we found her? My only explanation is that he too gave her a dark tome. Considering what happens to her if we do that. If that is right was it an accident? Or not? And what tome was it? And was that the reason he was this "sarcastic"? Because he knew he screwed up? Everything?

        • 05 Apr 2017 13:54  

          I don't gave him any dark tomes, a gave them to Karla, and bought all dark miracles from Karla and then bought all holy miracles from Irina, but she isn't becoming a firekeeper.

          • 24 Mar 2017 20:07  

            I gave her a dark tome, bought 2 dark miracles (deep protection and gnaw), talked to morne about keeping her safe, but she still sits in firelink and morne is nowhere to be seen.

            • 13 Mar 2017 02:26  

              I killed Irina as Elgin and gave her ashes to handmaiden in firelink Shrine, put before Irina turned crazy One divine tome wasn't converted to miracles. Any solution? Please advise

              • 16 Feb 2017 23:24  

                When you give her the lothric and carim tome on your first meeting in firelink and buy all miracles instantly she has another quote upon leaving , She says: "Godspeed,Champion of Ash. May your solemn duty conclude in triumph." try it out might be worth adding.

                • 10 Jan 2017 12:20  

                  The edit button does not seem to be working for me- To survive the drop next to Eygon you need ~1391 health, this is achieved with 27 vitality, life ring, and being embered.

                  • 08 Jan 2017 19:04  

                    When does she turn into a firekeeper exactly?
                    I gave her all the books including dark ones but only bought all her light miracles. Then Eygon showed up at the shrine and mocked at the place, but said I'm doing a good job. But still, she's not turning into a firekeeper, when is it supposed to happen?

                    • 12 Dec 2016 02:14  

                      So, I noticed that a dialogue isn't listed here. Somehow I managed to buy all of the dark and light miracles while also killing Eygon after he took here away. I never received the option to "touch" and then kill her. Now when I choose the "talk" option she says "Now I can tell you tales of miracles, forever and ever... (laughs)." Anyone else have the same thing?

                      • 12 Dec 2016 00:40  

                        Guys, Eygon and Irim are Maiden Astraea and Garl Vinland from Demon Souls. My bro and I are playing through Demons Souls and we just fought them. They're absolutely the same kind of duo.

                        • Eygon? Part 215 Sep 2016 23:19  

                          Let me be more clear, I know that you can have Eygon killed early in the Undead Settlement by those big guys holding pots. If I do this and buy dark magic will he still rescue her.

                          • Choice02 Sep 2016 22:04  

                            How does your choice affects rewards? If you go dark path you get to kill her in her quest, gain the ashes and the Morne set+ weapons. But If you keep her well she becomes a fire keeper and does the same thing that your fire keeper does but you have to walk 20 seconds more to get to her?<br/><br/>Am I missing something?

                            • dropped key bug?16 Aug 2016 03:28  

                              I bought the tower key from the shrine maiden, then I rescued Irina, but I screwed up with Yoel and Yuria didn't show up (started going a light route so cured hollow status then decided to do the dark route and didn't get enough hollowing to get the sigils before I killed Abyss Watchers) so I couldn't get the Londor Tome, so I just said the hell with it and bought the first set of dark miracles, then killed Eygon, and after she came back to her normal spot, I killed her and she dropped a second tower key and I was able to keep it

                              • Talk to Eygon23 Jul 2016 10:30  

                                I followed these instructions exactly but nothing happened. It turns out you have to actually talk to Eygon again after rescuing her and he will say he is allied to you as long as you keep her safe. She disappeared straight after I did this.

                                • If I'm At The End Of The Game20 Jul 2016 01:11  

                                  If I'm literally at the end of the game, have all the lord of cinders souls and about to end it with the final boss.. Can I still carry on with this whole quest line? Cause I can't find Eygon outside the doors of the 1st boss (graveyard) .. She is still in the state of what y'all call "Death Dialoge" and also bought all her dark tomes.. Wanted to do this questline so I went all out, lol
