Daughter of Crystal Trivia

  • Her name is derived from the Germanic elements grim "mask" and hild "battle". Kriemhild was a beautiful heroine in the Germanic saga the 'Nibelungenlied', where she is the sister of Gunther and the wife of Siegfried.
  • The name "Daughter of Crystal Kriemhild" can have two meanings: The daugther of the person known as Crystal Kriemhild, or as Kriemhild - Daughter of Crystal, which is hinted at by the description of the staff she drops. Daughter can also mean apprentice or follower etc.
  • It is unclear why she wears the firekeeper set, but she may have at some point been a firekeeper.

      i saw her, turned around and ran to lure her on more advantageous ground. apparently she promptly walked off a cliff (trying to reach me?), i didn't even land a single attack

        She's EASY! Equip a bow, right when you start up the initial stairs, stop, let her invade. Then stay at the bottom right where the path curves up. You should be able to peek out and see her. Youll be able to get off 3 shots including the first head shot. Shell walk down fire off a spell, stop and walk back to the same position. She has 2 estus flasks. That's an easy way to cheese her if you dont want to fight her up close

          Bad place for an invasion. She tries to keep a distance from the player which means that she's always standing at the edge of the cliff. I accidentally pushed her off with R1 spam. Comments here seem to whine about her parries, which makes me happy because it means that I avoided Ms. Hodrick

            npcs that parry are so bs. i get it if i was r1ing for hours onto them, but if i slowly close the gap and r1 once into a perfect parry? come on dude.

              Why doesn’t she clap? She’s a ganker and a mage, they clap all the time whenever they kill while holding their boyfriends peen.

                The Crystal Sages gave the staff to their favorite pupil Kriemhild. As being a favorited pupil, Kriemhild took on the title Crystal same as the teachers, becoming Crystal Kriemhild. This one is the daughter of that pupil.

                  I swear it said Daughter of THE Crystal Kriemhild when I fought her invader. (“The” wasn’t in all caps, that was to place emphasis)

                    Somewhere I heard that she is a firekeeper for the dark shrine. And considering she’s allied with lothric, it’d make sense for her mission is to stop any possible new ashen undead from coming. (Hence invasion)

                      Daughter of Crystal is her title, Kriemhild's her name. The description for the Sage's Crystal Staff says that the Crystal Sages' favourite pupil was Kriemhild

                          I'm not completely certain of this, but I don't think she has her rapier as an NPC on top of the archives. I've never seen her use it there, in my many playthroughs.

                            Notice that she has eyes, she is most likely a firekeeper whos champion gave her eyes and she seen a world of betrayal and is now fighting to stop the linking of fire

                                She doesn't invade me in graves. I killed dancer early. Same goes for Hazel and Thorny boy. Is that normal? Did I miss something? Could it be because I have no internet?

                                      Actually if it’s interpreted that she is the daughter of Kriemhild I think the person in the grand archives was kriemhild and that after you killed her her daughter cane for vengeance. I mean if you killed her in the grand archives how could she invade you? Especially since it says it was the staff of kriemhild.

                                        This little*****e right here is the only one of the trio in the Grand Archives you should care about. Spells hit like trucks, Parry queen, and it's hard to target her since Albert and Kamui keep rushing you. I will never forget that time when she parried me in front of Albert and he riposted me. Gotthard, I miss you...

                                          Good soul farming spot. She respawnes after every reload. Kick her off the ledge and reload game. 8000 souls a minute.

                                            What an easy invader xD she stood still near the edge for about ten seconds so I kicked her off. I mistook her for a trolly player at first

                                              I believe she's wearing the Fire Keepers' attire cause she "cherish the writhing, searing darkness" (Fire Keeper Gear disc.). The Untended Graves is surely a Dark place. She may not be blind, but may cherish the darkness all the same.

                                                Got invaded by her in Untended Graves, but was confused that when I killed her she didn't drop anything. Just now reading this I'm even more confused that after killing her in the grand archives she manages to invade.

                                                  When she parries you, it's actually pretty uncommon for her to riposte you. Most times, she parries and then casts a spell or something.

                                                  • Yellowfinger Heysal lives! I think this npc invader is actually Yellowfinger reborn. Its odd that she drops nothing and is the only other npc to use Farron spells. In Yellow fingers description it hints at some sort of relationship between the Crystal Sages and her. Maybe she is the daughter of one of them or step-daughter at the very least.

                                                      I think the crystals are about Oceiros. She could be a student of his, or even a daughter.
                                                      Or perhaps she's similar to the hybrids in the Duke's Archives from DS 1, experimented on.
                                                      Either way, she's related to crystals, and probably not in the nicest way.

                                                      She's wearing Fire Keeper's robes too. Could she be Gundyr's firekeeper?
                                                      Maybe she's posing as such just to keep him there, because she wants the flame to die...

                                                      Also her skin tone betrays Irithyllian nationality. She could be the Pontiff's student.

                                                        This NPC is Kriemhild. When has an NPC's name ever been their relationship to a named character? It's just a grammatical fluke of listing one's title before their name. This is the standard naming practice of NPC's in Dark Souls, with exception of when their title is simply "of (homeland)", "the (descriptor)", or, on occasion, "knight of (homeland)".

                                                          If she's there defending the Princes, and was most likely a scholar of the Archives, she's got to have some irreverence for the whole flame linking thing and her wearing of fire keeper robes may illustrate that. Not just any rando is allowed to wear those and I can bet she pulled them off some corpse in the untended graves.

                                                                Somehow this woman just parried two handed Astora Greatsword R1 like it was a twig. Apparently she can parry UGSs for some reason.

In the same way that black hand; Kamui and lion knight; Albert are her compatriots whose names are preceded by their titles. This is opposed to her being the daughter of the original crystal Kreimhild.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    -She drops nothing in Untended Graves at all, besides souls. She likely invades because at this point you're close enough to Lothric and Lorian where she feels the need to step in.
                                                                    -She is the same in the Archives as when she's a Dark Spirit. The Staff was likely given to her by her mother, who was a favored human by the Crystal Sages. Her mother received the staff from them and gave it to her. It's also why the Crystal motif.
                                                                    -The Firekeeper robes are likely just for fashion. I see no reason other than that.

                                                                    • She's the daughter of the Crystal sage in the Grand Archives, similar to Heysal because she's the daughter of the Crystal sage in the Undead Legion. She uses the Crystal Rapier and the Crystal staff and she wears the Fire Keeper outfit. She can be found next to the Farram Knight and the Black Hand probably protecting Lothric and Lorain. She can also invade you in the Untended Graves, which is kinda weird sense we has no purpose there in the first place.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        And the word "Hild" doesnt mean "battle"... It is a noun (name) for itself (if you add a few letters) or is at least an addable part to form a noun and therefore a meaning...
                                                                        (For example: Brunhild, Hildegard, Gerhild, Hildesheim, Hildebrandt, Hilda, Hilde ect.)

                                                                          • Anonymous
