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. Sirris's Sign Location
    • 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 she disappears from the Firelink Shrine and becomes hollow at the Pit of hollows.
    If 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 reallocating stats does not fail her questline).
  • Doing the above 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).
  • Denying her offer for loyalty, will result in her becoming hollow. She can be found praying at the Pit of hollows altar, just like her grandfather. Defeating her will drop the Sunless Talishman.



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..."

      Did I have to be online to make Creighton invade my world!? Cause I swear I'd done every single possible thing of the quest:
      - Talk to Anri: CHECKED
      - Talk to Sirris: CHECKED
      - Dreamchaser's Ashes: CHECKED
      - Give to the Handmaid: CHECKED
      - Talk to Sirris 2: CHECKED
      - Kill the Beast: CHECKED
      - Lit all Bonfire nearby: CHECKED
      - Defeat Creighton: CHECKED
      - Talk to Sirris 3: CHECKED
      - Area Boss Killed: UNCHECKED

      And all I can see at the giant grave is nothing so mind helping me a little bit here? Oh, I also kill the assassin at the Church BOnfire too, did that make any consequence!?

        okay so: i did beat abyss watchers, yorm, aldrich in that order - all talking done. so i found out, if the biding green blossom isn't in the inventary of the old handmaiden, u HAVE to kill the curse-rotten greatwood first. i mean it makes sense if u know that the fight happens finally in the pit of hollows. so having the gr8wood alive makes u unable to continue in her quest until u did that ;)

          This quest is bugged you need to get the sunless talisman before you give anything to Rosaria or you won't be able to get it and she'll turn hostile

            I'm just doing this quest now I've beaten Aldrick but not Yhorm and I went to the Tree boss and the summon sign is there so you do NOT need to beat three lords of cinder. ( i also bought the special green blossom from the shop)

              Top candidate for most useless, godawful npc summon. Just watched her do 38 damage on a riposte against Hodrick.

                You CAN do this after you finished the game. I have all bosses killed even the DLC ones and I am just wrapping up before NG+.

                I obviously talked to her after Horace and Anri appear at the Firelink Shrine. after that I did nothing on that questline. The Budding Green Blossom appeared at some time at the handmaiden, so for me this was not related to the Sirris questline but the trigger seems to be that you started it and you killed the lords of cinder. I have to add that I joined the moundmakers before I killed Treebeard - so that may be affecting something- may.

                Anyways; If you want to redo her questline waaaaay later do this:
                1. get embered.
                2. Go to the first Irithyll bonfire and walk up to the middle of the bridge. you will see a white summon sign. Assist her kill the wanderer.
                3. go to Firelink talk to her (gives you 2 items).
                4. Go to Treeboss (Dilapidated Bridge bonfire or something like that. since you killed him the pit will be of no use) the summon sign is right before that giant crater that used to be a courtyard with a boss in it. If it does not appear go back to Firelink and then return. I had to reload for it to appear. Assist her killing the dude.
                5. Go to Firelink and talk to Sirris she will promise you loyalty you will accept.
                6. go to the pit bonfire where the boss used to be and loot the body.
                7. Go to Firelink go to the Grave as described above and loot both Sirris and the other dudes body. - done

                    If Sirri's sign does not appear on the the bridge, a possible remedy is warping to Firelink Shrine and then back to "Irithyll of the Boreal Valley" bonfire.

                    Worked for me as of the time of posting. Perhaps someone could update the wiki to mention it, as the current instructions required me to find the solution elsewhere.

                      Hello there, folks,

                      As many of you know, you can achieve both the morion blade and the pale shade set in one playthrough due to a "hidden" way, the statue of velka. Is there a similar way to achive both the "proper bow" from Heysel and normally continue on with sirris' Questline to achieve the special items in her questline? As far as I know, it was possible to swear loyalty to rosaria and offer her the required amount of pale tongues for heysel to appear before talking to sirris for the first time. Does this way still exist? Or are there different ways to get both questlines?

                      Cheers and have a nice day.

                        Can confirm that the trigger for the blossom and the sunset armor drop is not killing 3 lords. I haven't killed Yhorm, but the blossom appeared and she sword loyalty when I returned from helping her kill Hodrick

                          Hey I'm wondering... Finished her quest up to 9th(where you get all the stuff apart from her armor I guess), and made her swear loyalty...
                          Soooo, if I rank up in Rosaria's now... will she keep her plomise, or will she invade me with her super dangerous weapon?

                            This seems to be a new addition to what has currently been in the game, but if you have not obtained the mound makers covenant, if you kill Hodrick, it give you the mound makers covenant. Normally, I wouldn't post anything but I don't see anything that describes that within what is currently here.

                              For those that can edit pages on Fextralife - and are a bit clueless it seems - you don't have to kill 3 Lords of Cinder for Step 6 and beyond. I beat only the Abyss Watchers and then Aldrich, and was able to continue the questline. Furthermore, once you Step 5, you can join Rosaria and still be successful, so you don't have to wait till the second to the last boss to respec.

                                She never showed up at all for me. I talked to Anri and Horace, and then checked to see if she was in Firelink, and no one was there. Gave the Dreamchaser's ashes to the handmaid, nothing. But when I gave a tongue to Rosaria, having given up on Sirris, boom, there she is, hostile and willing to kill me. What went wrong??

                                • 14 May 2017 04:44  

                                  Is it just me, or does Sirris do a comically pitiful amount of damage for, like, no reason? Is she doing an SL 1 run or something? Is her rapier secretly a broken straight sword? Is there some hidden ring in the game's files that reads "Become useless."?

                                  • 23 Apr 2017 10:21  

                                    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
