???? 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.
    • If her sign continues to not appear, completely resetting the game has been shown to solve the problem on occasion.
  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 (Costing 10 souls). 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.


  • If you by any chance failed to retrieve the Mound Maker covenant before killing the Curse-Rotted Greatwood, you will receive the covenant after defeating Holy Knight Hodrick, in the Pit of Hollows, in Sirris questline. (Will be received directly when spawning back in your world).



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..."

      Added Notes + Clarification that you could receive Mound Maker covenant item when killing Hodrick in pit of hollows during Sirris questline if by any chance you failed to do so before killing Curse-Rotted Greatwood.

        What a great description for the location of the grave! It was totally helpful! I didn't know there was a hollow in that map!

          The Sidequest-Page said "It's entirely possible [Hodrick] will kill Sirris, so approach this fight carefully."
          Does this mean, she is dead after Hodrick kills her? Because if so, you can save her by killing Hodrick before returning to your own world.
          Hodrick was one hit away from death as he threw a tantrum and killed Sirris. I killed Hodrick one second later. The Game told me "Sirris is dead, returning to your own realm", then the big letters said I fulfilled my Duty. As I went back into my world, I was sure, Sirris was dead, but I returned to Firelink Shrine and she sat there, thanking me for helping her against Hodrick. (Forth Encounter-Text)

            You do not need to defeat 3 lords of cinder to complete her quest line, only Aldrich, and therefore Abyss Watchers as well, need to be defeated.

              Lil help?

              Got all 3 primary bosses killed (Aldrich, Yhorm, and The Watchers) but the blossom isn't appearing and Sirris is gone. The summon sign isn't appearing before the Curse Rotted Greatwood boss. No, I didn't kill the boss. I don't understand what I did wrong... Maybe it's from killing Yhorm after Aldrich? If so, then that's just so broken.

                Why people assume she dies after finishing her questline? There is no corpse, and other NPCs leave corpses when die (like Eygon). She just leaves her equipment at the tombstone of her grandfather, nothing more.

                  So I didn't know that by giving tongues to Rosario that she leaves Firelink. When does she appear as a hostile NPC/invader?

                    NG+ runs if wearing Cats Eye ring you don’t get her summon sign on the irithyll bridge to continue quest because you shouldn’t have the ring before she gives it to you.

                      So just finished the irithyl part for sirris and only have 2 cinders killed but can still get the special budding green blossom. So you don't need 3 cinders to progress to next step in quest line.

                        After dying to Hodrick's one-shot parries on NG+7 a couple times (1512HP with nearly full Havel's), I finally manage to kill Hodrick with Sirris,
                        only to get a meager 5062 souls.. how disappointing.

                          I changed my appearance at Rosaria and Sirris' sign was nowhere to be found for Deacons nor Watchers. However, her questline is still going. Pretty strange.

                            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.
