First encounter dialogue

"I believe...I feel the scent of ash upon thee.
Thou'rt the one of whom uncle Gael spoke.
The one to show me flame.

Tis good. When this is done, may I return.
The door is open thanks to thee.

Tis good, I'll head off to paint.
I promised uncle Gael I would."

After she moves to the Cathedral of Ariandel:

 "Thou'rt Ash.
Thou'st a pact made with uncle Gael.
So I wish to tell thee all.
Behold its size. This is my canvas.
It's to be a cold, dark, and very gentle place.
...But first, I must see flame.
I wish to paint a picture.
Of a cold, dark, and very gentle place.
One day, it will make someone a goodly home.
That's why I must see flame."

After defeating Sister Friede:

"Those who aren't ken to fire cannot paint a world.
Those absorbed by fire, must not paint a world.
Don't worry, I haven't forgotten, Mother...
I can hear the fire crackle...
And soon, I will see it...
My thanks, Ashen One.
I will finish the painting.
Of a cold, dark, and very gentle place.
So that it might make a home for someone, someday."

" thanks, Ashen One
I can almost see the flame...
Soon, uncle Gael will bring me the pigment
I wonder if he has found it
The dark soul of man..."

If killed then talk to her after respawn, she says:

"Ashen one, i can not die.
I have a world to paint."

      Dark Soul of man.....I've got a feeling Gael or our old character from Lordran may be the vessel of manus for he "broke" in the first dark souls and his daughters being "fragments" of him (and with the collection of said daughters). Then again, the pendant is something manus want for he wanted happy memories and it hold no benefits for the player.
