Dialogue

 

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...
Irina..."

 

Trivia

  • 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)

      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.

        "If you’ve any sense, you’ll go find a coffin to huddle up inside."
        Were I to simply lay down and die, IT WOULD NOT PLEASE MALACATH!

          I summoned his for Crystal sage but instead had him carry me for the entire Woods, damn he can tank and hit like a truck. All I did was spam heal and quick step. Feels so dirty letting him do all the work lol. *Playing in mod*

            Eygon is a simp confimed "A Carim knight will dedicate an entire career to attending a single maiden, just as Morne once served one goddess alone."

              I got really confused with this one at first, he looks almost visually identical to my DS2 build. For a moment, I assumed the game reads save files from older games, but I guess its just a coincidence.

                i think this NPC is underrated when you encounter him he sounds ike a douche, but can you really blame him. there is a lot of undead around and at this point in the game you have'nt done anything special so it's not really that soupricing. notice that the game wants you to aprroach irina from the sewers, if you have just opened the cage from up front he would have probably attacked you. but when you exit he sees that you did'nt kill her (she also had "creatures" biting her that apparently only you can cure) when you do that he seems like he is starting to trust you and allow you to take her to firelink shrine, not because he is sick of her or anything but because he trusts that you have good intentions. in firelink shrine he stands close t irina but also in a place that he can watch when you come in, so if you actually planned to kill her he could have prevented that. when you give irina dark tome and buy dark miracles from her, he will drag her away from you to pull her away from your influence (at this point her safety is more important than killing you for him) but when you show up he obviously attack you so you won't have anything to do with her. if yo decide to cooperate with him he dosen't just leave you alone with her but also help you to insure that you're alive for her. he dies after beating abyss watchers and dragonslayer armour because this is the best way for the game to insure that you have obtained lothric and carim braile tomes and make irina a firekeeper, as such she will be safe from anything under your protection. now when irina is safe eygon is probably going hollow and he dosen't want himself to become a thread to irina so he kills himself in a place where far enough so he won't be going to worry anyone but obvious enough so one day you will be able to find his corpse. and to think that i killed him in my first playthrough because i though his weapon was cool

                  It should be added that he can no longer be summoned for the Crystal Sage fight if you beat Abyss Watchers first.

                    Another NPC with an odd trigger for an event... He'll die when the Abyss Watchers and Dragonslayer Armor are defeated. Why the Abyss Watchers? It's not like you can even reach the Dragonslayer Armor without killing the Abyss Watchers first... Why isn't it just defeating the Dragonslayer Armor? Really odd design choice.
