Sirris of the Sunless Realms is an NPC in Dark Souls 3.


General Information




  1. Start: Road of Sacrifices trigger. Speak with Sirris of the Sunless Realms in Firelink Shrine after you speak to Horace and Anri of Astora.
  2. Find and give the Dreamchaser's Ashes to the Shrine Handmaid in the Firelink Shrine.
  3. Speak with Sirris at Firelink Shrine and gain the Darkmoon Loyalty Gesture.
  4. Kill the Sulyvahn's Beast at the bridge near the Irithyll of the Boreal Valley bonfire. Reload the world and find her summon sign in the middle of the bridge. Use it to be summoned into her world and help her kill Creighton the Wanderer.
    • If her summon sign does not appear killing the Curse-rotted Greatwood makes it appear.
    • You don't need to kill Curse-rotted Greatwood. You only need to light the second bonfire across the bridge, teleport back to first bonfire from there and you'll see the sign.
    • If you've already killed the Cursed-rotten Greatwood and her sign doesn't appear, warp back to Firelink after activating the bonfire after the bridge then go back to the beginning of the bridge. Her sign should appear. If you haven't crossed the bridge and lit the bonfire on the other side, her sign may not appear.
    • You don't actually have to kill the Sulyvahn's Beast, just cross the bridge and her sign should appear once you reload the area.
  5. Talk to her at Firelink Shrine to receive a Blessed Mail Breaker and the Silvercat Ring.
  6. After defeating Aldrich use the summon sign outside the Curse-Rotted Greatwood boss area to be summoned into her world and help her kill Hodrick.
    Note: For this step, you have to defeat 3 lords of cinder and a unique Budding Green Blossom will appear within the Shrine Handmaid's shop inventory. The item description has a special notation that reads: "Good-bye, dear Grandmother. I will visit Grandfather, in the Pit of Hollows." Sirris probably left the item with the Shrine Handmaid, before confronting Holy Knight Hodrick, her Grandfather. Its appearance in the shop can be used to confirm your progress in the questline, but purchasing it is not required.
  7. When you return to your world, Holy Knight Hodrick's armor (the Sunset Armor Set) will be right by the Pit of Hollows bonfire and the Sunset Shield will be at Hodrick's grave. Both can be obtained before talking to her.
  8. Speak with her for the final time at Firelink Shrine, and she will swear fealty to you. If you decline her offer she will stay in Firelink Shrine and give you the option to accept her offer again if you speak to her.  After you accept her vows, she will not fight back if you choose to kill her, allowing the player to easily get her equipment.
  9. While speaking with her in Firelink Shrine, she says that she can die in peace. Hodrick's grave is between Firelink Shrine and the Iudex Gundyr boss bonfire, where the hollow standing at the edge of the cliff can be found. The Sunset Shield can be found on his body. NOTE: You may need to log out and then back in for it to appear.
  10. After defeating the Twin Princes her corpse can be found at her grandfather's grave containing the Sunless Talisman and her armor can now be purchased at the Shrine Handmaid.

Questline Quirks and Failures

  • She leaves Firelink Shrine and becomes hostile if the player gives Rosaria a Pale Tongue to increase her covenant's level and may leave if the player kills Company Captain Yorshka. (as of regulation 1.05, simply changing your appearance or respeccing does not fail her questline.)
  • Doing this ^ before looting her body will result in her turning hostile.
  • It is no longer possible to speedrun to Rosaria to offer a pale tongue before ever meeting Sirris to avoid failing her quest. Sirris will simply not show up, and giving the Dreamchaser's Ashes to the handmaid does not fix this.
  • She'll skip first encounter dialogue if the player gets the Dreamchaser's Ashes before talking to her once.

  • If you want to speed up the last step kill her after she pledges herself to you, since this would have the same effect as the last step. (for doing leonhard's quest for the Crescent Moon Sword and other items)



First encounter (Firelink Shrine)

Mm, you're an Unkindled, aren't you.
I am Sirris, of the Sunless Realms, former servant of the Divinity.
Duties we each bear, but one's duty is a solitary affair.
I doubt we've much to gain from fraternisation.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

Second encounter (Firelink Shrine)

Hello again.
I have since heard a great deal about you.
For one, that you are most gentle of heart.
I, too, am bound by duty, but can offer you my sign.
I hear that cordial intrusion lays the path to embers.
If I can be of help, by all means, do call upon me.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

"If you should require assistance, use my sign.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

Creighton the Wanderer

Thank you for your kind assistance.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

Third encounter (Firelink Shrine)

Mm, I have not thanked you, for your generous rescue.
That Dark Spirit was one of Rosaria's Fingers. Vile bastard offspring who lurk in the darkness.
My sworn enemies.
Fearsome invaders, to say the least.
I would not have made it alone. You have my deepest gratitude."

"If you require help on your travels, I offer you my sign.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

Holy Knight Hodrick

I finally found you.
Just as I promised, grandad, remember?"

"Good night, grandad..."

Fourth encounter (Firelink Shrine)

Oh, there you are.
I'm afraid I've involved you in my affairs, over a little promise, at that.
My sincerest thanks for your assistance.
At last, my grandfather will rest in peace, and I can die.
But there last thing.
May I take a vow? To serve you, as a knight."


Yes, of course.
I am afraid I have overstepped my bounds.
But if you might ever reconsider, and allow me to avow myself to you...
Do not hesitate to speak up.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

"Oh, hello again. May I avow mysef to you?
As a faithful knight, yours and true."

[Accept her knightly vow]

Oh, I am most grateful.
I, Sirris, do hereby serve as your faithful knight.
Wherever, whenever, I am needed, and even if all should turn against you...
My loyalty shall never waver.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

"If I may ever be of assistance, call upon me.
I am your knight, forever and true.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

Joining Rosaria's Fingers

"Mm, I see that you are now a Finger of Rosaria.
Your path is wholly different to mine.
Gentle Unkindled, I bid you farewell.
If we meet again, it will be as adversaries."

When fought after joining Rosaria's Fingers

"Yes, I see, an errant Finger you've become.
Very well. I will cut each Finger from the hand."

While dying

"Forgive me, grandad..."

      So she swore her undying fealty to me, then I gave a tongue to Rosaria now she wants to kill me... I don't think that's how fealty goes, she would let me kill her without fighting back for ***** sake and now I can't have a badass to fight for me. From pls stop

      • 17 Apr 2017 23:55  

        Can I offer pale tongues to Rosaria in NG (get the reward) and still do Sirris questline in NG+??
        I missed the silvercat ring in my NG. Its the only ring I missed so far.

        • 14 Apr 2017 15:46  

          Maybe one of the recent regulations have changed this bit of her quest, but if you decline her swear of fealty, she'll leave to go hollow at the altar beneath the Cursed-rotted Greatwood. If you really want to keep her around, its best to just not talk to her after assisting her with Hodrick or move away from her while she speaks to keep from having to make a choice...

          • 14 Apr 2017 15:36  

            Failed her questline, due to a glitch.

            Went to rosaria for the 1st time and used the skill re allocation and paid 1 pale tongue (found as a drop)

            After coming back to firelink she says im her enemy now and next time i meet her it will be as enemies.....

            This is the part i hate about dark souls 3.....
            1 small action can ***** you up real bad.

            Just like if you a single dark miracle from irina of carim you fail her story too...

            GG wp no re.

              Intersting Trivia: At the point where Siriis' Questline is finished and she lies dead next to that grave, if you put a sign there with the "You didn't deserve this" (Don't know exactly how it's called) and a gesture, your character will always appear as Holy Knight Hodrick (For me it worked with collapse).

              • 09 Apr 2017 17:25  

                I wanted to do both her quest and Leonhards but I made the mistake of doing Leonhards only after I defeated Hodrick with Sirris, I thought after I accepted her pledge to me it would be safe but I was wrong so if you want to do both you must kill the Twin Princes and wait for Sirris to die naturally to get her stuff before moving on to Leonhard.

                • 09 Apr 2017 09:33  

                  Everyone probably know already, but you can in fact join Rosaria's Fingers, without failing Sirris' questline. As long as you don't offer a Pale Tongue to Rosaria, Sirris' questline should be safe.

                  • 08 Apr 2017 19:52  

                    I'd already gone through Sirris' questline in a previous playthrough, so I decided to decline her offer on becoming my knightess to keep her alive in Firelink Shrine. She stuck around even after I had beaten the Twin Princes and had completed a majority of the Ashes of Ariandel DLC back when it first released.

                    Then at some point when I was exploring The Ringed City, she disappeared from her usual spot (Forgive me, I didn't think anything new would happen with Sirris, so I didn't pay attention). I don't recall ever accepting her offer beforehand, and I didn't do anything with Rosaria either. On top of that, the Handmaid was not selling Sirris' armor, and I couldn't find her talisman anywhere in Firelink Shrine.

                    I checked back on this wiki page to see if her questline had changed, and I realized I had forgotten to pick up Hodrick's set in the Pit of Hollows for this NG cycle. So, I warp there, and color me surprised... There she was... Hollow and hostile...

                    She may have been a terrible summon, but she was still a friend.
                    Rest in peace, dear friend...

                    • 05 Apr 2017 17:15  

                      For anyone wondering, I completely forgot about her quest line, but went to the bridge after beating the game (didn't go on to second journey) and found her summon sign. So you may e able to do this at any time as long as you don't tick her off.

                      • 05 Apr 2017 05:58  

                        Her sign didnt appear at the cursed Greatwwod at start (when it should) i tried reloading the area, went by twice. But after visiting Aldrichs place (killes him way earlier) her sign appeared.

                        • 04 Apr 2017 17:13  

                          Just discovered joining the fingers by offering a pale tongue, even after defeating Aldrich and being summoned by Sirris to kill grand dad, will piss her off.

                          Thought I had finished her quest line. No big loss - I killed her in Firelink and got her talisman. Grandma carries her armor. She was a terrible summon anyway. Onward!

                          • 04 Apr 2017 16:01  

                            I'm at the point where Sirris swears fealty to me to become my knightess. If I join Rosaria's covenant or give her a pale tongue, will any future summoning signs that she puts down dissaper in my game (I.e for Twin princes fight since i've already defeated the Dragonslayer Armour)

                            • 04 Apr 2017 14:46  

                              So i tried to do her questline but i didnt find her sing on the irithill bridge.
                              1. i reloaded the area
                              2. ive done all steps before in the right order
                              3. i closed the game and start it again
                              My only explenation is that i lighted up the rosaria bonefire. i didnt speak with her. also could killing the red eye orb wraith do something? If somebody knows answer to my problem please tell me.

                              • 01 Apr 2017 08:58  

                                Her summon sign dont appear at twin princes although she sweared loyalty to me. Any suggestion why? Im lvl 50, no other summon sign appears and alone this fight is no fun

                                • 29 Mar 2017 15:27  

                                  This is FALSE!! -->> "you have to defeat 3 lords of cinder"
                                  I only defeated the abyss watchers and aldrich and her summon sign appeared near the pit of hollows.
                                  P.S: Grandad hits hard!

                                  • 20 Mar 2017 23:36  

                                    I wanted to complete her questline on my current playthrough but I failed somewhere.
                                    I didn't return to the shrine at all after I killed the Abyss Watchers and all through the catacombs through to Irithyll, where I finally returned then went back to get summoned by Sirris, only to find nothing, so I'm sure I missed the second encounter with her at the shrine but I didn't know you had to speak to her before a certain point.

                                    • 05 Mar 2017 14:25  

                                      Sirris says she an adversary to me now. I tried to progress her quest at the same time of Leohnard's. I offered Rosaria a pale tongue, returned to Firelink to see her standing up. I talked to her and she said y'know we're adversaries now. I tried changing my appearance to see if she'd return because she disappeared after that I talked to her. Haven't seen her since. Did I fail her quest? What do I do?
