Dialogue

First encounter dialogue:

 

I believe...I feel the scent of ash upon thee.
Thou'rt the one of whom uncle Gael spoke.
The one to show me flame.

Tis good. When this is done, may I return.
The door is open thanks to thee.

Tis good, I'll head off to paint.
I promised uncle Gael I would."

After she relocates to the Cathedral where Sister Friede is:

 

Thou'rt Ash.
Thou'st a pact made with uncle Gael.
So I wish to tell thee all.
Behold its size. This is my canvas.
It's to be a cold, dark, and very gentle place.
...But first, I must see flame.
I wish to paint a picture.
Of a cold, dark, and very gentle place.
One day, it will make someone a goodly home.
That's why I must see flame."

After defeating Sister Friede:

 

"Those who aren't ken to fire cannot paint a world.
Those absorbed by fire, must not paint a world.
Don't worry, I haven't forgotten, Mother...
I can hear the fire crackle...
And soon, I will see it...
My thanks, Ashen One.
I will finish the painting.
Of a cold, dark, and very gentle place.
So that it might make a home for someone, someday."

"...my thanks, Ashen One
I can almost see the flame...
Soon, uncle Gael will bring me the pigment
I wonder if he has found it
The dark soul of man..."

 

After killed: 

Ashen one, i cannot die.

I have a world to paint."

 

In The Ringed City DLC: 

...Ashen One, thy gift of flame has taken root. And Uncle Gael will soon bring the pigment.
Pigment coloured like the dark soul of man.

I wonder if Uncle Gael has found it?
The pigment coloured like the dark soul of man.

Upon giving the Blood of the Dark Soul
My thanks, Ashen One.
With this will I paint a world. Please tell me thy name.
I would name this painting after thee.
My thanks. I will paint a world of that name.
Twill be a cold, dark, and very gentle place.
And one day, it will make someone a goodly home.
I see. We are much alike.
Twill be a cold, dark, and very gentle place.
And one day, it will make someone a goodly home.
Then I will name this painting "Ash".

I wonder when Uncle Gael intends his return.
I hope the new painting will be to him a gentle home.
My thanks, Ashen One.
I will assuredly finish the painting.
Of a cold, dark, and very gentle place.
One day, it will make someone a goodly home.

      I like it when she asks our character's name. If we say we have no name, she names us and the painting "Ash". So now we're Ash and the new world she painted is...Pokemon? :) We just teleport to Pallet town (Lol cause painting) and instead of normal Ash starting his 10 year journey of failure we show up as a Giant Hulking Flaming Knight and murder/replace him and pikachu. Then go on an epic bloody adventure with the painter riding on our shoulder like Giant Robo.
      Pokemon! Adventures of "Ash"(en one)...Gotta kill'em all!

                Ok so since the lore is a bit shaky on her and someone already mentioned it on here, I think this might be Ocelotte. Now he was dislike bombed because he didn’t supply any evidence, but I would like to try and put something together. So now, if Gwynevere was the Queen of Lothric, I don’t think she would leave Ocelotte with an Oceiros that was loosing his mind. I think she would try and keep the child safe from Oceiros by keeping her in the same place where another crossbreed was, say like Yorshka? Plus The painting lady is a crossbreed so that can be some evidence of Oceiros being the father. I don’t really know, the lore is really vague with this one, anything can really be possible. This just makes the most sense to me

                  "Pigment" is kinda similar to "Pigmy". Knowing that this pigment is the dark souls I think it's a happy coincidence

                    Is she immortal? I mean in the lore. She can come back to life, and she's called the painting woman, so is she immortal?

                      This is Ocelott from the Consumed King Oceiros boss fight. Do the lore diving yourself and you'll find that I'm 100% right

                        "Sorry, but your uncle Gael wont be coming home. On the positive side - the thing he searched for? - I guess, he always had it in him and the real treasure was the friends he made along the way? Anyway..." [Hands over Blood of the Dark Soul...]

                          Since she makes a painted world where you can live in, it is a bit weird that theres a painted world in a painted world, so ive came up with a theory about the painted world. What if the painted world was based of a painting like the one of her? I believe theres a ''core'' part of the painted world, which is a painting itself and the entire place is based of the painting, but a painting is not eternal so the painted world rots. So in order for a new painted world the old one would need to get burned so the new one can take over and shape the landscape, for a painted world without rot. Now this is just a theory and i dont have any evidence backing it up, but i like to think its like this.

                                  Is it just me who has a memory of the painting being finished after you've given her the dark soul? She paints some/all the painting in my memory. Yet I can't find any pictures anywhere.

                                        No matter what someone says, for me, she is Priscillas daughter (the father i have no idea, propably a human ), so she is worth cherishing and protecting.

                                          speculation on the linage or history of painters does little to explain their purpose. They create and reforge worlds.

                                          • Here's a potential thought, Yorshka is the product of Priscilla and Gwyn (Since Gwyndolin is referred to her as brother) while this Painting Woman is the product of Priscilla and someone else, possibly a lover within the painted world. That would make her and Yorshka half-sisters.

                                              If Priscilla was indeed a product of Seathe--and one is of the mind that Priscilla and The Painter have some relation, which I am--then it would seem Seathe's quest for immortality was a success, though, not for himself. Immortality, instead, of time, of life, and of death, through a perpetuation of endless cycles of new paintings as the as the First Flame finally wanes to naught.

                                              That is, until, one day, tiny flames will dance across the darkness.
                                              Like embers, linked by lords past.

                                                The point of infusion of the blood into the pigment was to cancel the cycles, a peaceful world painted of one soul without other influence will not face disparity the same way, would probably be like the untended graves which are only non peaceful to trespassers

                                                  Isn't she talking about the painting the "Painted World of Ariamis", since time is all warped and messed up in DS anyway?

                                                      Just got to Gael and haven't found her at all in the Ringed City so far. Does she appear after I kill him?

                                                        1. She never appeared anywhere within the Ringed City for me, so the information stating can be "found" there is quite misleading, and 2. Wouldn't painting 'girl' be more appropriate, considering her child-like appearance and demeanor? I guess this is just a nitpick, but still...

                                                                  • Anonymous
