Soul of Darkeater Midir

Soul of Darkeater Midir.
One of the twisted souls, steeped in strength.

Use to acquire many souls, or transpose to extract its true strength.

Midir, descendant of Archdragons, was raised by the gods, and owing to his immortality was given a duty to eternally battle the dark, a duty that he would never forget, even after the gods perished.

      So what's the whole deal with his soul having the look of a Humans (there's even the humanity eyes). Not to mention that it also looks like Manus's soul. So does this mean Midir was also corrupted (he doesn't act it). Just a little confused, if someone could explain a little that would be much appreciated.

        Killed him with a crit and he fell off the bridge dying, no souls, no items, nothing. Dragon is gone now and i am sad.

            I honestly believe that Midir is a decendant of Seath. They both don't have eyes, that's just something I noticed right away. Also his soul says that he was raised by the gods. The gods hated all of the dragons, except Seath. So why would they put in the time to raise a dragon unless it was somehow related to the god's only dragon ally.

                Having defeated him I went to get the moonlight, only to find I never got his soul? Anyone else have this problem? I have soooo many boss souls because I never use them for their cost, so I seriously doubt that I used it.

                  i think there is a small issue with size, when you fight him in the bridge he looks very big but once in the pit the model seem slightly smaller can anyone confirm this?

                    Not sure if anyone mentioned this yet, but Midir is considered an abyss creature: Wolf Knight Sword bonus damage for the win

                      So, Shira tells us to kill Midir because she thinks Midir is crazy now, but probably it is the opposite, Midir might be the last one stands against the dark souls, against humanity.

                        From the description, it seems he is sane, despite of the fact that he attacks us, afterall, it is his duty to attack us, the offspring of the abyss, we are from dark and are the ones that he has to fight.

                          Midir got corrupted fighting with the Abyss that's why you see dark crystals/particles appear in his body and somehow acquired dark powers (Dark Laser Beam/ Dark Fire Breath). Hmm.. if he is a descendant of the Archdragons... I wonder how huge the the Everlasting dragons was if Midir is already that big.

                            It's a weird looking soul too, it's all black and wispy, it's got two little dots in the middle... OH MY GOD THE SOULS LOOKING AT ME

                              After Dark Souls 1 established "dragons have no souls" only to be retconned by Dark Souls 2 with bosses like Sinh and Guardian Dragon dropping souls that could be made into weapons, now we come to... a Miyazaki dragon creation who has a soul that can made into weapons (well, a weapon or a spell). I wonder what his personal interpretation for the discrepancy caused by the second game is that he decided to do this?

                                So, Midir was pretty much the dragon equivalent of Artorias. Both tasked with fighting the abyss until the end, kinda sad really...
