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. Sirris's Sign Location
    • If her summon sign does not appear killing the Curse-rotted Greatwood makes it appear.
    • 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 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.
    • I also had to kill Decons and then pass through the wall that requires the Doll and then rest at the bonfire and then teleport back to the bonfire before the bridge
  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.
  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 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 have a question : I talked to sirris in my first NG and here all ok , Then I didn't know i had to go back and help her so I continued the story and joined Rosaria fingers only for achivements and now she told me she will be hostile next time we meet. The thing is that I recently started NG+ with the same character , Can I still try again her questline or i need to make another character and do it with the new one ?

          What happens if you kill the two princes before meeting her, or completing her quest line? This latest playthrough I managed to beat the Dancer before even beating Vordt and I'm up to the Dragonslayer Armor Boss. Don't want to go in if not summoning the her and E will ruin my playthrough.

            I can confirm that you need not kill three Lord's of cinder to have her cooperation summon sign appear outside the I'll rotted greatwoods boss area. I've killed both the Abyss Watchers and Aldrich, have the profaned capital Bonfire, but have not killed Yorm, and the Cooperation sign appears. Haven't checked the shop for bud yet

              IMPORTANT!

              If you join Rosaria's Fingers Covenant after you accept her vows and before she dies, the next time you'll visit the Firelink Shrine, she will appear standing and holding her sword.

              You'll trigger her dialog "Mm, I see you are now a Finger of Rosaria..." as you've done nothing for her.

              I didn't have the Budding Green Blossom though.

              And since I've already got Silvercat Ring, I killed her right as soon she spoke these words.

              The Sunset Shield was on the Grave + she dropped the Sunless Talisman.

                  npc questlines are getting way too complicated and intermingled and consequences are so severe and time consuming to fix like having to restart game cause you miss best things why cant i just backtrack to fix mistakes like a storyline choice respec or something not everyone has time to do several playthroughs and even if they did i dont see how its worth it almost makes the game unplayable cause its so frustrating who wants that enough is enough

                    You do not at all need to kill all 3 lords of cinder for sirris to appear in front of the great hollow, all you need to do is kill aldrich and it will appear. (same for the budding green blossom to appear in the handmaidens inventory) [I tested this on the 28.06.2018

                      She is the WORST summon! EVER! she either dont do any damage and keeps healing herself (she doesnt have any estus, so she has to cast magic) or she attacks dumbly and doesnt heal herself at all, dying after 2 boss hits. She is super trash.

                        It's ironic how she says:
                        "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."

                        And betrays you after you join Rosaria...

                          LeL, so to summ it up, even if you do everything to help somebody, they just die out of...reasons. Ah, Dark Souls, the forced drama is strong with you.

                            I don't know if it is worth mentioning but, the end of her questline is when she is found dead at her Grandfather's grave. Therefore, if she pledge loyalty to you, you accept, but start giving tongues to Rosaria before she dies, she will turn hostile and disappear. So wait until you found her corpse to follow Leonhard's questline.

                            It's a shame she does not invade your world if she turns hostile. She just, disappear.

                              No you don't, the budding greenblossom isn't necessary, it simply acts as a marker for where you are in the questline, you can be summoned without it in your inventory or buying it

                                I am currently on cycle NG 30 with a character and probably have completed the game another 50 times with other characters. Here the steps as simply as I can put them:
                                - talk to anri and horace at the road of sacrifices
                                - return to firelink to talk to sirris
                                - travel back to firelink to see she is gone (this is the step that confuses people, after every step you will be required to return to firelink to make sure she left before her quest continues)
                                - get the dream chaser ashes
                                - give ashes to lady
                                - travel back to firelink to see sirris
                                - talk to sirris
                                - travel back to firelink to see she is gone
                                - her sign becomes available for deacons and abyss watchers
                                - light both bonfires at either end of the bridge to irithyl
                                - you don't need to kill the wolf or reload the game, you can run past the wolf to cross the bridge and it will disappear, or kill it quickly with magic through the barrier
                                - find her sign near the beginning of the bridge
                                - use her sign and kill creighton
                                - travel back to firelink to see and talk to sirris
                                - travel back to firelink to see she is gone
                                - kill aldrich
                                - go to entrance of fog gate of pit of hollows to find her sign. If you haven't already killed the cursed tree, you will need to do so first.
                                - if you haven't joined mound makers, you can buy a stamina green blossom item for 10 souls from the vendor and you will become a moundmaker after the grandfather fight.
                                - use her sign to kill her grandfather
                                - travel back to firelink to talk to her and accept her service
                                - travel back to firelink to see she is gone
                                - her sign will now be available for dragon armor and twin princes
