Trivia

  • He is the Faraam set wearing enemy among the 3 NPCs in Grand Archives (Albert, Kamui, and Kriemhild) on the long set of stairs guarding the Twin Princes.
  • Voice actors, chracter inspirations, fan art, cosplay goes here.

      "I was able to summon Lion Knight Albert after killing the Dancer of the Boreal Valley, I was wearing the Dancer's Set. He used the Black Seperation Crystal after killing Emma." This makes no sense seeing as how you can't fight the dancer until Emma is dead (either killed by player or once three Lord's are beaten) and once you fight vordt his summon sign disappears. And if you've killed Emma and he crystaled out you can't summon him as his sign never comes back.

        In the Grand Archives I take these guys on one at a time. One play through he was last but died for no apparent reason while I was fighting the other ones. I looked around but couldn't find a spot where you can fall to your death. I still got all his stuff so no big deal I guess. Interesting glitch of some kind. Possibly he wandered as far as the elevator shaft but that's in the other direction.

        • So the story between him and the three other characters.17 Sep 2016 15:31  

          There's a loose background story between Albert, Kamui, Gotthard, and Kriemhild, that you can get a feel of as it unfolds as we play through the game.<br/><br/>Albert is present at the High Wall when you arrive, and will help you to defeat the now insane Vordt, who is an agent of Pontiff Sullyvahn. But should you betray the royal family and kill Emma, he'll Black Crystal out in defiance. Albert is unseen for the rest of the game until you reach the Archives. It is likely that he remains somewhere in Lothric Castle until the Eclipse causes him to ascend to the Archives to meet with Kamui and guard the Princes.<br/><br/>We don't meet Kamui in game until the encounter in the Grand Archives, so it's likely that he was simply waiting there all along, guarding the final path to Prince Lothric, but we do know that before he was initiated into the order of Black Hands, he travelled to the Undead Settlement to forge a companion blade for his main weapon, Onikiri, creating Ubadachi, as all Black Hands fought with paired weapons. We don't know when this happened however, so it is possible that he was made a Black Hand after Prince Lothric was resurrected, and travelled to the Undead Settlement more recently, though apparently before we arrived.<br/><br/>Gotthard, another Black Hand, sets out from the castle to destroy an enemy of the Royal family; Pontiff Sullyvahn. We first encounter him on the path to the Abyss Watchers, who he helps us defeat to unlock the passage that eventually leads down to Irithyll. We can then summon him for assistance against the Pontiff, fulfilling his quest to defeat the power-mad tyrant. Gotthard returns to the castle and flees towards the Archives when the Eclipse occurs, but is killed by unknown means (possibly whilst fleeing from the Dragonslayer Armour). It is Gotthard's death that allows us to proceed into the Archives, towards the encounter with the Princes.<br/><br/>Kriemhild, the favourite student, and possibly biological daughter of the Crystal Sages, invades us in the Untended Graves following the player's victory over the Crystal Sages in the Crucifixion Woods. Unable to defeat us and exact revenge by herself, she ascends Lothric Castle to join Kamui and Albert in defending the path to the Princes, hoping that their greater numbers will grant her the revenge she seeks against the player.<br/><br/>It is worth noting that the ultimate encounter in the Archives is basically a nod to the Gank Squad boss fight from Dark Souls 2, in Shulva. Just like before you have a heavy-hitting tank in the form of Albert, instead of Varg. A dual-wielding katana edgelord in the form of Kamui instead of the Afflicted Graverobber, and a primarily ranged character who switches to a rapier up-close with Kriemhild instead of Cerah.

          • Emma's Cause or Lothric's Cause?15 Jul 2016 21:53  

            Seeing as he's found before Lothric, "guarding" possibly, it could be that the reason he crystals out, is because he doesn't want you to pass the Dancer and get to Lothric.

              I don't think this is true, For me when i killed Vordt with him helping, he just leaves, i haven't tried to kill emma first tho.
