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)

      So i cant find it anywhere else but in my NG, Eygon was able to come help me fight the nameless king. I cant get him to appear now but my theory is he is summonable afrer Irina becomes a fire keeper and you kill either prince lothric or the soul of cinder. Ill try and get him to help after both and respond if either works

        I felt like crap killing him. All he did was protect irina. I wish I never purchased the gnaw miracle if this would happen.

            He is so loyal to Irina and his voice is highly charismatic even though he is quite the hardcore dirty bastard. He also hits you like a truck on low level. No chance to escape when even hit once and he got some nice hyperarmour for sure. He had huge potential to be some kind of typical fantasy bad guy hero. But he kinda was highly underrepresented. I still r8 him 8 out of 8 though.

              Is he only purpouse in the game be killed by us or die alone if we just ignore him? He looks badass and charismatic but he hasn't any reason to exist lol even if we kill him Irina doesn't care at all.

                    I honestly think Morne was a gargoyle guardian of the witch that later became known as "Caitha", the goddes of tears. They covered that up with the stone armor and that beast beeing a saint later. (or Morne became a gargoyle...if that is possible in the DS universe)

                      He showed up in firelink, I never attacked him. When I went to Lothric Castle and back to firelink he was gone

                        Eygon hits pretty hard when you summon him, but goddamn you have to damn near bribe him to get him to wing his stupid giant club or run anywhere close to the boss. Circle him with the boss and tow and try to trick the boss into aggroing on him, otherwise he's just useless.

                            Instead of prasing incredibly dull and lazy pieces of dialogue as "great storywriting", go and explore more interesting genres. You'll do yourself a favor having fun with actual stories and you'll notice how barebones whatever the heck this thing has as an excuse for the events of the game.

                              Eygon is a good example of great unwritten writing in games (games can't force the player into a story, the player creates the story, but games can provide options for the player to tell their own story. These options are what I call unwritten writing, because as a developer you don't write dialogue or cutscenes for them):

                              Yesterday I had a bad day, so I decided to play Darksouls.
                              Eygon pissed me off and I didn't know if I could get his weapons later in the game, so I've killed him.
                              Then I had a giant club to squash my enemies, which always feels good, especially in darksouls.

                              So despite taking away from the written story (killing Eygon), I got great story out of it (squashing enemies with a club on a bad day).
