Eygon of Carim Information








First encounter

Hmm...  Another one of those Unkindled, are you?
All you faceless Undead, behaving as if you deserve respect.
Hmph.  No matter.  Heed my words.
If you’ve any sense, you’ll go find a coffin to huddle up inside.
You here, in this land of Hollows, you’re like a frail maiden on the front lines.
If like the others, you’re fool enough to play the champion…
Then go on ahead, traipse right past the abandoned church.
You’ll face death, and it won’t be pretty.
Enough death to leave you broken, time after time." (chuckle)

If like the others, you're fool enough to play the champion...
Then go on ahead, traipse right past the abandoned church.
Hopeless, the whole lot of you.  Like little moths, flittering towards a flame."

After visiting Irina's cell

You like poking around in cells, do you?
How very genteel!" (chuckle)

Ah-hah, taken an interest in her, have you?
Well she's a lost cause. Couldn't even become a Fire Keeper.
After I brought her all this way, and got her all ready.
She's beyond repair, I tell you." (chuckle)

The woman's a lost cause.
Couldn't even become a Fire Keeper.
She's beyond repair I tell you." (chuckle)

After rescuing Irina of Carim

You've gone and rescued her, have you?
How very quaint, pitying creatures that are beyond help.
Very well.  I'm sick of looking after her at any rate.
I am Eygon, a knight of Carim.
I am allied to you as long as you assure the girl's safety.
And only for that long..."

What's the matter?  My terms are very simple.
I am allied to you for as long as you assure the girl's safety.
And only for that long..."

First encounter (if you visit Irina's cell first)
(This replaces both parts of his normal first encounter)

Hmm... Another one of those Unkindled, are you?
All you faceless Undead, behaving as if you deserve respect.
Now you're poking around in peoples' cells.
How very noble!" (chuckle)

First encounter (if you rescue Irina first)
(This skips all his previous dialogue)

Hmm... Another one of those Unkindled, are you?
All you faceless Undead, behaving as if you deserve respect.
Now you've gone and rescued the wench...
How very quaint, pitying creatures that are beyond help."
(The rest is the same as his normal rescue dialogue)

Firelink Shrine (after Abyss Watchers)

Ahh, I know you. Been some time(, since we met in person).
I just dropped in to see how she's getting on.
Now, what are you playing at with this circus?
This cesspool of doddering oldfolk and degenerates.
Couldn't be better. She must fit in perfectly here." (chuckle)


Iudex Gundyr (after he takes Irina away)

I made myself very clear.
My allegiance remained only as long as you assured the girl's safety.
This knight of Carim does not forgive betrayal.
Even a broken woman deserves her dignity..."

When you die

Remember. A knight of Carim does not forgive betrayal.
Not ever."

When he dies

(argh) Irina... This bastard/wench..."


Attacking him

What is it now!"
"Curse you, ***** fool!"

Aggroing him

Lost it, have you?
Then I'll take care of you.
As many times as it takes!"

He kills you

Stay dead this time."

You kill him

Deluded Hollow bastard...



  • Eygon of Carim is played by Grahame Fox.
  • Holds some similarity to Garl Vinland from Demon's Souls, a greathammer and shield wielding knight who guarded the maiden Astrea much like how Eygon guards Irina.
  • His weapon of choice is very similar to the Grant used by Paladin Leeroy from Dark Souls as they are both great hammers with a faith requirement and special area of effect attack. Much like Leeroy, he is summonable for a sorcerer who creates clones of himself.
  • His helm is based on ceremonial/parade helm of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V.
  • Can be summoned for dragonslayer armor even after being summoned for crystal sage. ( Summon can be found in the building to the right of the stairway leading to the boss fog on the right side just beyond the doorway ). 
  • Eygon is the second knight of Carim NPC you can ally yourself with, the first being Lautrec of Carim from Dark Souls 1. Both the knights also has a keen interest in Fire Keepers, maybe it's a cultural thing.
  • Interestingly, he uses a shield in combat, a trait that is very rare among the knights of Carim, who often uses the Parrying Dagger.
  • Within the Ringed City, past Midir and inside the tower that houses the Shared Graves Bonfire, the player will be invaded by the Moaning Knight. This knight is using the same moveset and armor as Eygon, which may lead to speculation that the invader is indeed Eygon gone hollow, or some similar knight within his order. He also drops the Blindfold mask.
  • Building from this information, one can infer that this "Moaning Knight" is the slain Eygon that stole Irina after she was corrupted by the Dark by way of corrupt miracle tomes. Thus, due to a possible player choice, Eygon is left hollowed after the ages waste away, and he guards the bonfire in a place that once held firekeepers. (huge guess)

      What's the deal with this guy ? He swore an oath to devote his entire life to protect Irina, but he absolutely ****ing hates her ? Like literally all he does from the moment you meet him is talk **** about Irina, but at the same time he chose to be her lifelong protector and guardian (as is the custom in Carim). Getting major loser vibes from this guy, not as much as the complete loser Hawkwood, but still close. His armor and hammer are cool af though, I'll give him that.

        Weird. I've exhausted his dialog, killed both bosses, I've even completed Irina's quest, but no corpse in her cell.

          He was quite helpful for me against Dragonslayer Armour and I was very confused seeing him dead in Irana's cell afterwards. Now I know why i occured

            To summon this guy for fight against Dragonslayer Armour (I spent around 2 hours to find out why his sign was not in my game) we have to speak with him one time after we save Irina and then one time after he appears in Firelink Shrine.

            I will leave this comment for anybody who found problem with this guy and his sign. I guess that probably most people won't have this problem because encounter this guy after Irina is saved. But I found that many players also asked in Internet why they don't see his sign and I guess that it's because the same situation as in my game.

            I just met this guy before I saved Irina and then just ignored him - because didn't know that there is anything we should do with him after Irina is saved (now I see that we can understand it from text above about him but it still can be not understood in proper way - because we can think that we exhausted his dialogue - because we spoke with him - but not after Irina was saved).

            Then I found out that we should speak with him. But sing was still not in place. Then I realized that I have to speak with him again in Firelink Shrine.

            After it - he was available for fight :)

              With knight as a starting class, I've only able to do a full cosplay of him on SL170 with 41 VIG, 40 END, 60 VIT, 50 STR, and 30 FTH (with Havel's Ring +3 and RoF +3). With Ring of Steel Protection, it has 39-40% absorption, 35% on strike. Does anybody know if it is possible to make the build at lower levels?

                Wait what is censored when he says
                "Curse you, ***** fool!"
                I’d think it’s “bloody”
                But then why is bastard/wench not?

                  I just ran into a glitch. Completed Sirris' questline and neither NPC appeared near Dragon Armor. Completing Eygon's questline caused Sirris' summon to appear only. Then visited Iudix Gundyr's bonfire (where he would have been if he were hostile) and used the first Lothric elevator. One of those events triggered his summon sign to finally appear. Very odd.

                    This guy is the beast against Dragonslayer Armor, even in NG+3. All I had to do was aggroing the boss when his health goes low and he smashes the armor to pieces.
                    One of the best summons in the game, hand down.

                      Were I to simply lay down and die, IT WOULD NOT PLEASE MALACATH!
