???? 1000 Firelink Shrine Sunless Talisman

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 Talisman.



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..."

      About the idea that Sirris is the granddaughter of the Shrine Handmaid: 1) why would the Handmaid sell the special green blossom if it was a goodbye message from her granddaughter and 2) why would Sirris be going to a random grave after she succeeds in her storyline all the way to the end? Seems far more likely that the grave is of her grandmother and the Handmaid simply picked it up off the grave to sell after Sirris set off on her quest. I don't understand why this is even a question.

          In case you wonder why Creighton and Hodrick are that strong. We are beeing scalled down in these encounters. Probably to Sirris level. My weapon against Hodrick did only half the damage as it would do normaly. Could mean Sirris is running around as a pure faith glass cannon. Her non buffed hits are weak, too what is supporting this theory.

            I was having an issue with my controller so I accidentally attacked serris and she got aggroed. I had to kill her before I could complete her questline. Is there any way I can fix this?

              Actually, i recently killed sirris after completing her questline. Instead of saying her usual dialogue line mentioned in the post, she said "My Vows...". I have to say that i successfully completed her questline.

                You can join Rosarias Fingers, but you can't give a pale tongue unless you are reallocating attributes, and or changing appearance then it does not matter.

                    If for some reason you want to summon Sirris for the Twin Princes, you *cannot* join Rosaria's Fingers before that fight. Even though she's sworn loyalty to you and you've helped her defeat Hodrick (and don't hear from her again after her oath unless you summon her), she'll take it back, tell you that you'll meet as adversaries, and her summon sign in the entry to the boss area will disappear.

                    Sirris really isn't useful at all in that fight, but hey, the more you know.

                      Maybe it's just a little bug in my game, but I noticed that parts of her dialogue cut off/are unspoken when talking to her after beating Hodrick. More specifically, the line where she says "If I may ever be of assistance, call upon me." The " upon me" part isn't spoken. Just a little oddity, nothing really critical.

                          If i already killed the majority of bosses and cleared the areas does her summon sign still appear so she can summon you for creighton?

                            She won’t appear if you’re hollow, she wasn’t showing up the second time and I did everything possible. After I healed the dark sigil with the Fire Keeper and reloaded the area Sirris showed up.

                              You say she will turn hostile but she never invades you or does anything other than say she will no longer be your friend.

                                Will NOT APPEAR for Abyss Watchers boss fight unless you have spoken to Hodrick (possibly joined, can't say for sure in NG+ if it counted that as well) in the Pit of Hollows. Does not require Curse-Rotted Greatwood to be defeated for this. Unsure how this went so long without being added to the wiki.

                                    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 ;)
