      It's possible this is a reference to Giantdad, as it's the Giant's coal, and unlocks the chaos infusion.

        You can see Aldrich's slime trail from the corpse leading up the stairs. Was another of his victims.

          Perhaps one of the least useful video locations. If your intent is to show an item's location you need a point of reference. Particularly one that someone who had not already been to that location would recognize. Reasonably, this would be the bonfire.

            If u haven't seen dark souls 1 story then don't read this. Andre's dialogue says that he knew the giant In Anor Londo, but how in the hell would he know of the giant he is not a god or apart of the gods so how is does he know. The only explanation is Andre is confirmed as the first born of Gwynn makes since due to them sharing the love of smithing and weapons which is Andres, Giants, and first born favorite thing

              The Giant's Coal... used by the Giant Blacksmith of Anor Londo, the guy who sold you the "Giant Set", allows you now to forge... Chaos Weapons ?! ... ... ...Could it be some kind of reference to the legendary build of GiantDad ?
