Sirris of the Sunless Realms is an NPC in Dark Souls 3.

 

General Information

 Can be killed. Once dead, the player can buy her Armor Set from the Shrine Handmaid.

 

Questline

  1. Start: Road of Sacrifices trigger. Speak with Sirris of the Sunless Realms in Firelink Shrine after you speak to Horace and Anri of Astora.
  2. Find and give the Dreamchaser's Ashes to the Shrine Handmaid in the Firelink Shrine.
  3. Speak with Sirris at Firelink Shrine and gain the Darkmoon Loyalty Gesture.
  4. Kill the Sulyvahn's Beast at the bridge near the Irithyll of the Boreal Valley bonfire. Reload the world and find her summon sign on the bridge around where the Sulyvahn's Beast spawned. Use it to be summoned into her world and help her kill Creighton the Wanderer. (*note* You have to light the Central Irithyll bonfire to get the sign to appear.) Sirris's Sign Location
    • For the Creighton the Wanderer interaction you don't need to kill Curse-rotted Greatwood. You only need to light the second bonfire across the bridge, teleport back to first bonfire from there and you'll see the sign.
    • If her summon sign does not appear killing the Curse-rotted Greatwood makes it appear.
    • If you've already killed the Cursed-rotten Greatwood and her sign doesn't appear, warp back to Firelink after activating the bonfire after the bridge then go back to the beginning of the bridge. Her sign should appear. If you haven't crossed the bridge and lit the bonfire on the other side, her sign may not appear.
    • You don't actually have to kill the Sulyvahn's Beast, just cross the bridge and her sign should appear once you reload the area.
    • If her sign continues to not appear, completely resetting the game has been shown to solve the problem on occasion.
    • Make sure that she left Firelink Shrine after you've given her the Dreamchaser's Ashes and received the gesture, if you travel to Irithyll right after talking to her the sign will not be there yet.
    • You have to kill Deacons of the Deep to receive the "small doll" to pass through the barrier at the end of the starting bridge in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, then reload the area.
  5. Talk to her at Firelink Shrine to receive a Blessed Mail Breaker and the Silvercat Ring.
  6. After defeating Aldrich use the summon sign outside the Curse-Rotted Greatwood boss area to be summoned into her world and help her kill Hodrick.
    Note: For this step, a unique Budding Green Blossom will appear within the Shrine Handmaid's shop inventory (Costing 10 souls). The item description has a special notation that reads: "Good-bye, dear Grandmother. I will visit Grandfather, in the Pit of Hollows." Sirris probably left the item with the Shrine Handmaid, before confronting Holy Knight Hodrick, her Grandfather. Its appearance in the shop can be used to confirm your progress in the questline, but purchasing it is not required. Defeating Yhorm is also not required. (if the summon sign does not appear outside of the Curse-Rotted Greatwood fight, killing the Curse-Rotted Greatwood will spawn the sign)
  7. When you return to your world, Holy Knight Hodrick's armor (the Sunset Armor Set) will be right by the Pit of Hollows bonfire and the Sunset Shield will be at Hodrick's grave, between Firelink Shrine and the Iudex Gundyr boss bonfire, where the hollow standing at the edge of the cliff can be found. NOTE: You may need to log out and then back in for the items to appear.
  8. Speak with her for the final time at Firelink Shrine, and she will swear fealty to you. 
    If you decline she disappears from the Firelink Shrine and becomes hollow at the Pit of Hollows.
    If you accept her vows, she will not fight back if you choose to kill her, allowing the player to easily get her equipment.
  9. After defeating the Twin Princes, her corpse can be found at her grandfather's grave between the Firelink Shrine and Iudex Gundyr bonfires, containing the Sunless Talisman and her armor can now be purchased at the Shrine Handmaid.

Questline Quirks and Failures

  • She leaves Firelink Shrine and becomes hostile if the player gives Rosaria a Pale Tongue to increase her covenant's level and may leave if the player kills Company Captain Yorshka (as of regulation 1.05, simply changing your appearance or reallocating stats does not fail her questline).
  • Doing the above before looting her body will result in her turning hostile.
  • It is no longer possible to speedrun to Rosaria to offer a Pale Tongue before ever meeting Sirris to avoid failing her quest. Sirris will simply not show up, and giving the Dreamchaser's Ashes to the Handmaid does not fix this.
  • She'll skip first encounter dialogue if the player gets the Dreamchaser's Ashes before talking to her once.
  • If you want to speed up the last step, kill her after she pledges herself to you, since this would have the same effect as the last step (for doing Leonhard's quest for the Crescent Moon Sword and other items).
  • Denying her offer for loyalty will result in her becoming hollow. She can be found praying at the Pit of Hollows altar, just like her grandfather. Defeating her will drop the Sunless Talisman.

Notes

  • If you by any chance failed to retrieve the Mound Maker covenant before killing the Curse-Rotted Greatwood, you will receive the covenant after defeating Holy Knight Hodrick in the Pit of Hollows in Sirris' questline (will be received directly when spawning back in your world).
  • Her summon sign for the Deacons of the Deep battle is next to the fog gate. The Dried Finger will let the player summon Anri, Horace, and Sirris for the battle.

Dialogue

 

First encounter (Firelink Shrine)

Mm, you're an Unkindled, aren't you.
I am Sirris, of the Sunless Realms, former servant of the Divinity.
Duties we each bear, but one's duty is a solitary affair.
I doubt we've much to gain from fraternisation.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

Second encounter (Firelink Shrine)

Hello again.
I have since heard a great deal about you.
For one, that you are most gentle of heart.
I, too, am bound by duty, but can offer you my sign.
I hear that cordial intrusion lays the path to embers.
If I can be of help, by all means, do call upon me.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

"If you should require assistance, use my sign.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

Creighton the Wanderer

Thank you for your kind assistance.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

Third encounter (Firelink Shrine)

Mm, I have not thanked you, for your generous rescue.
That Dark Spirit was one of Rosaria's Fingers. Vile bastard offspring who lurk in the darkness.
My sworn enemies.
Fearsome invaders, to say the least.
I would not have made it alone. You have my deepest gratitude."

"If you require help on your travels, I offer you my sign.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

Holy Knight Hodrick

I finally found you.
Just as I promised, grandad, remember?"

"Good night, grandad..."

Fourth encounter (Firelink Shrine)

Oh, there you are.
I'm afraid I've involved you in my affairs, over a little promise, at that.
My sincerest thanks for your assistance.
At last, my grandfather will rest in peace, and I can die.
But there is...one last thing.
May I take a vow? To serve you, as a knight."

[Refuse]

Yes, of course.
I am afraid I have overstepped my bounds.
But if you might ever reconsider, and allow me to avow myself to you...
Do not hesitate to speak up.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

"Oh, hello again. May I avow mysef to you?
As a faithful knight, yours and true."

[Accept her knightly vow]

Oh, I am most grateful.
I, Sirris, do hereby serve as your faithful knight.
Wherever, whenever, I am needed, and even if all should turn against you...
My loyalty shall never waver.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

"If I may ever be of assistance, call upon me.
I am your knight, forever and true.
Blessing of the moon upon your journey."

Joining Rosaria's Fingers

"Mm, I see that you are now a Finger of Rosaria.
Your path is wholly different to mine.
Gentle Unkindled, I bid you farewell.
If we meet again, it will be as adversaries."

When fought after joining Rosaria's Fingers

"Yes, I see, an errant Finger you've become.
Very well. I will cut each Finger from the hand."

While dying

"Forgive me, grandad..."

      I love how they tried to make her a warrior apart of an ancient covenant specialized to kill the guilty with a hatred towards invaders but she ironically becomes a damsel in distress because her damage and health are so low.

        Sirris of the Useless Realms.

        I seriously don't get why From put in the effort of making this cool sword-fighter lady on a dark quest to put down her crazy undead grandad, who belongs to a shadowy sect of badasses who punish evil and who wields an awesome unique magic buff, then give her **** damage and now ability to tank. Such a potentially cool character held back by being mechanically terrible. Sirris might be the single worst summon in the game and the fact that she is there for Abyss Watchers, Deacons and Twin Princes is almost insulting.

        Anri is the true sword-waifu, now and forever.

          Pfft. Sirris. Lucatiel is where it is at...until she loses her memory...and turns hollow...*cries into Lucatiel body pillow*.

            Can I still get the sunset, even after offering just one tongue to rosaria? I made this mistake and I can't figure it out how to undo it

              A tip to killing Hodrick is to bring Undead Talismans to the fight (idk how are they called in English), this will block his Estus and make it easier to kill him.

                So if she becomes hostile does she just disappear from the playthrough? Didn’t know she would become hostile after swearing fealty but before twin princes. I’m gonna have to dupe a darkmoon talisman aren’t I

                  She did okay against the invader. Went a round with him, ran off to heal, i backstab him, she comes back and distract him and I backstab again, he focuses on me and she distracts him again and backstab, he gets up and we double teamed him and killed him. Okay she tickled him, but she still aggro'd him enough for me to backstab him.

                    She left firelink shrine before I could give handmaiden dreamchasers ashes after i killed Crystal Sage. Haven’t done Farron’s Keep yet. Hope she returns.

                      I tried summoning her whenever she was available in a recent playthrough, the only fight she was helpful in (and the only one she survived to the end of) was Abyss Watchers. She's kinda tanky during Dragonslayer Armor but does like 40 damage. She unsurprisingly accomplished nothing on Deacons, then wandered around in circles through phase 1 of Twin Princes and instantly melted in phase 2

                        If you don't talk to her after killing Hodrick in the pit of Hollows, she'll stay in Firelink Shrine permanently provided you never start up a convo. This is purely in case you don't care about the reward and enjoy having your shrine as populated as possible

                          in the invasion if she dies and you quickly kill creighton, even though it says teleporting back because she died, it still counts as good, and she appears in firelink

                            She cannot be a knight. She has zero skills with her weapon. The only damage comes from her Darkmoon Blade buff. Which she has from Yorshka which demands 30 proofs of concord in exchange for the miracle. So the question is HOW DID SHE GET THOSE EARS???

                            • Anonymous

                              Important to note that refusing her fealty does not immediately result in her going hollow; you can talk to her again and agree even after re-returning to Firelink.

                              I'm guessing she will then only go hollow after your next boss fight OR after the Twin Princes?

                                ALT+F4 the moment you hear her die during the segments where you help her, then when you open the game again you will be able to try again without her dying permanently.

                                  Dammit. Didn't know you're not allowed to join Rosaria. I kinda wanted to do that questline. Well, I guess that's something to do on NG.

                                    I made a faith character as a change to my usual dex build in the souls games. I followed Sirrus' questline as I wanted her armour set, and when I realised what was going on with Hodrick and Sirris, it hit me in the feels.

                                    I messed up her questline right at the end first time I did it, by trying to do Leonhards story without beating the princes, so I never saw the end.

                                    My miracle blade ofvthe darkmoon character really grew on me, so I started going for trophie on her for NG+, where I had to hand in a tongue to Rosaria to get the gestures from Heysel, etc.

                                    NG++ was where no more mistakes. Did every quest and story (as well as rings) in full, bringing Sirris to every fight I could even the ones she makes it harder in like the Twin Princes.

                                    At the I was expecting to find Sirris' talisman by Hodricks grave, which would be bad enough...

                                    When I actually saw her on top of the grave, I have to admit my throat genuinely locked up....

                                      I exhausted her two initial dialogues at the shrine, then i decided to ignore her sign on the bridge. After taking out Dancer, i actually found the bouquet in Shrine maiden inventory and bought it. Just to refresh my memory, i went back on the bridge and realized her sign is still there. I went beside the Pit and also found her sign. Seems like i can still do both, but does that mean that i'll lock her other steps if i do either?

                                          It seems like i've failed this questline. I currently done everything up to step 6 (Killed Aldrich) but the special Budding Green Blossom doesn't appear in the lady's inventory, and there's no summon sign at the entrance to the Gurse-Rotted Greatwoods room.
                                          Any help?

                                              Just to let you know guys, I spoke to her only once to get the darkmoon loyalty gesture, then I completely ignored all other steps, killed Soul of Cinder, and still managed to complete all other steps in her questline. So if you think you progressed too far in the game you didn't.

                                                          It's ridiculous how weak she is when you help her as a summon, or when she helps you as a summon. She barely deals any damage even with buffed weapon, has low HP and defences, pretty stupid AI that forces her to go melee with 10% hp while she still has Estus and FP for casting her heals. Not to mention how fast she drops dead in Twin Princes fight without even damaging them! Her only role is to facetank for about 20-30s and die, giving you a little breathing room to go ham on the boss.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            Imo I really like Sirris as a character. Her story is in depth and a bit mysterious, she gives a cool ring, and her build is legit (I like how self-reliant she is). She's got good damage and health for Iron Dragonslayer and Twin Princes so she's really good for pulling agro too. Plus her personality is pretty cool

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              I talked to her in firelink shrine, she gave me the gesture and dissapeared. I gave the ashes to the shrine-maid and there was sirri again, everything seemed cool. But when I went to fight the Abyss Watchers there was no summon sign, only Gotthards...

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                I was fighting her in the Firelink Shrine (with her fighting back) and after she self-healed two or three times with her miracles, she just vanished out the world mid-fight when I next got her around half-health. Is she now just gone completely from this cycle and I have to wait until NG+ to attempt to fight her again?

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  I think that you should add something like this:

                                                                                  "If you join Fingers of Rosaria after Sirris pledged loyalty to you she will appear in firelink shrine to warn you of her becoming an adversarie of yours, you can kill her here as a last chance of getting the sunless talisman and her armor set"

                                                                                  I'm not sure if she vanishes out of your world after that if you don´t kill her or if she hollows in the normal location, but i would bet for the first one.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    It seems that you can skip the Irithyll fight and still complete her questline. I was quite far into my game when I decided to do her questline and when I went back to Irithyll, her summon sign wasn't on the bridge. (no matter how many times I reloaded, etc) So I went to her next location beside the Pit of Hollows (after buying the budding green blossom) and her sign was there and her questline continued as normal. Just thought I'd mention it :)

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      Reminder that you are able to reallocate your stats and change your appearance without failing her questline. The only thing you can’t do with Rosaria is offer a pale tongue specifically to level up the covenant.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        "If you by any chance failed to retrieve the Mound Maker covenant before killing the Curse-Rotted Greatwood, you will receive the covenant after defeating Holy Knight Hodrick, in the Pit of Hollows, in Sirris questline. (Will be received directly when spawning back in your world)."

                                                                                        to the Mound Maker Covenant wiki page as well, so that way people who are trying to find out how to get into the convenant (like I was a few days ago) will know that they have an alternative method.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          • Anonymous

Is there any manual or description? Or we have to figure out through the one or two lines these NPCs say? If wasn’t because this site I would have missed completely this questline and many others.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              Went to Rosaria to do Leonarhd questline as well while I was at it and when I came back she became hostile but did not fight back.
                                                                                              Nice vow you did, *****.

                                                                                                • Anonymous
