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.



  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 may 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 may 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 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.


  • 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.



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 last thing.
May I take a vow? To serve you, as a knight."


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 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.

                  I can't find her corpse and the summon is not available.

                  - Didn't join Rosaria
                  - All bonfires of the game and DLC are lift
                  - Dreamchasers ashes are given to handmaiden

                  Any ideas?

                    The Boss page states that Sirris can be summoned for a lot of boss fight... but don't remember see any of her summon sign in any boss encounter area.

                      Well, it is 100% possible to completely miss her questline. I somehow did the Rosaria part before ever meeting Sirris. The very first time I saw Sirris was at the Firelink shrine and she told me we were enemies now, and I was like: 'who the hell are you?' LOL

                        All these questlines and summon signs are really stupid. All need to be done required only diehard fans to go search all possible progression routes. If play the game blindly then won't get ****. The one planning all these in formsoftware should be fired.
