Daughter of Crystal Kriemhild is a NPC in Dark Souls 3.

Daughter of Crystal Kriemhild



  • This NPC invades in Untended Graves, along the cliff path where the Cemetary of Ash bonfire would normally be.
  • You can also meet her as a hostile NPC, in the trio of Black Hand enemies at the bottom of the stairs that leads up to the Twin Princes boss, in the Grand Archives.


  • Souls (phantom): NG (7,543), NG+ (??), NG++ (??), NG+3 (??), NG+6 (??), NG+9 (??)
  • Souls (human): NG (12,000), NG+ (24,000), NG++ (??), NG+3 (??), NG+6 (??), NG+9 (??)
  • Sage's Crystal Staff (Human version).

Combat Information






  • 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.

      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?

                    I blasted her off the cliff and now I can’t find her drop, is there anyway to claim it rather than the next ng?

                      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
