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)

      I noticed his dialogue changes if you summon him for Sage.
      He will say "been some time" but if you summoned him, he will say "been some time since we met in person"

        The summon asdvice for crystal sage fight is TROLL AS ****. It says look left upon entering 'the room' - which is taken to mean the boss room (as there's no fog upon first entry) HE'S SUMMONED IN THE ROOM >BEFORE< THE BOSS ROOM. fix asap, someone must be changing this **** back to being intentionally vague just to troll people, I lost three embers trying to summon this ****er because of whichever autist dipshit doesn't understand language.

          My theory: after Irina becomes a firekeeper eygon gives his armor to the shrine handmaiden and goes to irina's old cell bare naked to jerk off one last time before he kills himself. Then one of his brothers (who is also a knight of carim and wields the same weapons and wears the same armor) comes to check on Eygon only to find him dead and bare naked. Then he sees the player take his weapon and shield and concludes that we must be the one that killed him. So Eygon's brother tracks us down to the ringed city to kill us but he dies to us.

            Perhaps Eygon is talking about Fextralife here? Does this have any lore implications?

              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.

                                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.

                                              Can someone tell me why my Eygon is still alive? I haven’t purchased anything from Irina. I fought All 4 lords of cinder and finished the ring city DLC and this dude is still at Firelink shrine... I couldn’t even find his summon for dragonslayer.

                                                So after defeating soul of cinder i decided I'll kill irina so i can fight eygon to get his stuff before ng+. He never showed up. And then i find out he's dead and is in Irina's cell. It was sad.

                                                  During my fight outside the shrine he placed his shield on his back and blocked 6 attacks from my caestus with his weapon, this man just does not care.

                                                  • Carim and Londor are close. In what way exactly is obscure to us but all evidence (together with the old DS1 item/miracle descriptions) lead to that conclusion that they are connected. Maybe Carim is runned by hollows masquerading themselves as faithfull saints, maidens and paladins? Also interesting in that context that people in DS constantly warn us about the "way of white" and the clergy in generel. Gives you the chills if you think about it.

                                                      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

                                                            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.

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.

                                                                              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).

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                  Irina saif herself she wasn't meant to become a Fire Keeper. Important info! And she read a dark tome judging from her symptoms when we found her. And Eygon said she's broken. Implying not the book was the problem. Irinas frail nature was it! Maybe it's time to look at this "odd couple" in a different light. Based on what we know, they were not on an ordinary pilgrimage. If I had to guess I would rather say the goal was the cathedral of the deep (where we find btw a set of another maid) and she was meant to become one of those cathedral evangelist. Whats support this in my opinion is that Carim and Londor seem to be close judging from the items history since DS1. Raising the question what the real nature of their Church and their believes are. It's not about Jesus that's for sure.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      Fought eygon but he rand off a cliff and dropped his weapons where I couldn't get them. Is this my punishment for being bad?

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        Okay, so I let him die on his own (RIP bro) but he dropped two Morne's Greathammers and two Moaning Shields??? Does it carry over for each NG that you don't pick them up? I never aggroed him or anything and Irina never went mad. I already had one of each, but suddenly I was carrying three of them. Also wasn't online, not sure if that might affect anything... Wish I knew how to exploit this lol.

                                                                                          Theory time. The Moaning Knight is Eygon gone hollow, everyone has guessed this, but the Blindfold mask is the biggest link. Eygon brought Irina to Lothric in order to make her a firekeeper, though she failed to become one. Likely, he held a Fire Keeper mask of some sort while waiting for her to finish her training or initiation, to be given to her once she became a fire keeper. The Blindfold mask is described as being similar to a fire keepers mask, though is likely different because it comes from a different place. Since Eygon never gave Irina the mask (even if you make her a Fire Keeper she still doesn't get it), he would still have it till he goes Hollow, which you then retrieve and use for yourself.

Step 2: Aggro Eygon (possibly optional) Step 3: Make the saw enemies hit Eygon (for some reason they do tons of damage to him) Step 4: Kill the saw enemies once he's dead. Step 5: Loot your free Greatshield and Hammer!
