Eyes of a Fire Keeper is a Key Item in Dark Souls 3.

Eyes of a Fire Keeper


A pair of dark eyes.

Said to be the eyes of the first Fire Keeper, and the light that was lost by all Fire Keepers to come.

It reveals to the sightless Fire Keepers things that they should never see.

 

Eyes of a Fire Keeper Usage

  • Can be given to the Fire Keeper in the hub version of Firelink Shrine. She will then offer to "remove fire from the world".
  • Talking to Ludleth the Exiled while in possesion of the eyes will change his dialogue to explain the background story of the untended graves and the owner of the eyes.
  • The effects of giving the eyes to the Fire Keeper changes the Firelink Shrine music, changes the Fire Keeper`s dialogue, as well as providing option of the Betrayal Ending.
  • If the Fire Keeper is killed after giving her the eyes, the eyes will be returned to the player and then everything will become as if you had never given them in the first place. Note that you can still return the eyes to her after this happens.

      It's the Eyes of the Keeper
      It's the Ash of the Night
      Rising up to the challenge of our Phantoms
      And the last known Unkindled
      Wants to burn out the Light
      And She’s watching us all with the Eyes of the Keeper

        Since you find them on a corpse in the Untended Graves where Irina sits in the normal firelink shrine, is it possible that irina is the dead firekeeper in the untended graves? Maybe an alternate version of herself like how the Shrine Handmaid is in both places at the same time?

            Why does this page called the "End of Fire" ending, the "betrayal" ending? Doesn't really make sense unless it is mentioned as such somewhere in the game. Linking the Fire would be the betrayal as you are Undead Human ie. you should work to bring about the end of the Age of Lords/Fire unless you "betray" humanity to again help Gwyn continue his Age. At least that's how I personally interpret the games' Ages and I've seen lore channels state similar conclusions due to Gwyn's actions. "End of Fire" is the proper name for the ending or Age of Dark ending perhaps.

              So i got the link the fire ending without exploring the untended graves. later i went there and got the eyes, now if i give the eyes to the firekeeper, can i get the end the fire ending too?

                Gave the eyes to her accidentally, declined, killed her and there is no more eyes on the inventory. Is this ok?

                  Ooooh. There is mentioned about dissapear of these eyes with words "in some instances".. What are those instances? Because i really want "End of Fire" ending and Irina is sitting next to me in Firelink Shrine.. :( Please answer someone :((

                    It's weird to say this now, but from looking at the body where you find the eyes... The marks over the eyes region look a lot like the wax covering the girl's eyes in Demon's Souls.

                      Hi, what happens if you give her the Eyes and then choose Decline and you dont kill her? She will still have the Eyes, but does it count as accepting and "Wishing for a world without flame" OR it counts as if i never gave her those Eyes? Thanks and sorry for my english

                        These eyes belong to the First Fire Keeper, and Ludleth has been a Lord of Cinder in the past. Since he speaks about helping “her” cope with the visions, that implies that he was part of the first set of Lords of Cinder. This would also reinforce (but would not prove) the theory that he’s also one of the Pygmy Lords, but because he volunteered to become a Lord of Cinder, he wasn’t imprisoned with the rest of them.

                          Interestingly this ideology correlates with the painted world DLC. According to the bird thing npc that was sitting in the chair. The proper use of the flame is to burn way a rotting world then allow the next world to be born. Similar to hat ludleth apparently did. The betrayal seems to be towards the "Gods" race as theh need the flame to remain in power and not lose to humanity. The truth is that they are being accommodated for a living a lie. -sheba

                            I hate this item, if you have these eyes and not going for the betrayal ending, it's either, 'is there something I should know', then you give her the eyes and it's all 'please kill me' the moral to this story is? Don't talk to a blind person if you have eyes.

                              I really hate this item, when your not going for the betrayal ending, you either have to keep a secret from the firekeeper, or listen to her beg you to kill her, and if you kill her, it's back to the, is there something I should know? Scenario, moral of this story is? don't talk to a blind person if you have eyes...

                                    I though you would have given the eyes to the mirical teacher irina so she could do somthing,
                                    Could have been an Easter egg from developers but they must have seen better things to Be done

                                            Honestly, call me weird, but I actually prefer the Ending The Fire Ending. It's messed up, but honestly, It needs to happen...Lothric is shredding itself apart. The Fire is already dying...and no Flame burns forever.

                                              question I have is what do they show the fire keeper? something corrupted? Or the truth? and what truth would that be? Why does she see things but want me to kill her then? Does she "reset" after each death? Does she forget what she saw? does she prefers to live a lie? I don't understand what is going with these eyes. are the eyes evil? Or are we evil in linking the fire? and if yes why would she wish for that? her reaction makes no sense to me.

                                                The decease Fire Keeper you get the eyes from almost reminds me of the Maiden in Black. Maybe it's just me.

                                                    I be her the eyes because I have already beaten all the bosses, but I regret it because the firelink shrine now makes me really sad because of the music

                                                      Aparently after you give the firekeeper the eyes, the music in firelink changes from the violin music to a much sadder piano tune

                                                          Do the eyes carry over to NG+? I just want to make sure whether i should just give her the eyes now after already beating the final boss or start NG+ with them to get the alternate ending.

                                                            Had to test it out and Irina will not accept the eyes after becoming a Firekeeper. There's no option to give them to her.

                                                              So if I kill her will she respawn? Also if I don't kill her nor wish to change the ending with the eyes will anything happen? Basically if she just has them, will anything happen?

"This is completely wrong. All of the fire keepers are blind - just look at the one you level up at. When you give the fire keeper the eyes, she asks if you're sure you want to give them to her, as they're not meant to have eyes. The item description even says they belong to the first fire keeper! That's clearly not Irina, as she isn't even an actual fire keeper, let alone the first one.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

I haven't done it but I believe this is a way to revert your decision leading to the Betrayal ending.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

She sounded so afraid and on the verge of breaking down in tears when she remarks on a world without fire...And when you say 'yes', she sounds so defeated and tired, just going to accept the fate that awaits her in the future.One thing I cannot grasp is why would the Fire Keeper to allow such a thing to happen? Isn't her duty is to keep the fire going? So if you disagree with her wouldn't she just replace you with another unkindled? Perhaps she has a more personal reason?
