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. 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 really don't know why its not mentioned here but one of the locust preachers in ringed city talks about her.I think this should be added to her page. One poor girl slew her own kin, but even so, was embraced, enveloped by the Abyss. Twas a comfort that neither moon nor sunless sky afforded her before. Fear not, the dark, my friend. And let the feast begin.

        I got a bug, or maybe an unwritten part of this quest : I missed the Mortician's Ashes, and even though I gave the Dreamchaser ones to the handmaiden, I still did not get Sirris to appear until I gave the Mortician's Ashes to the Handmaiden and reset Firelink Shrine. Gotta be careful when rushing this game.

                my first playthrough ever. she keeps dying to the first npc. he's not hard and would be fun as a solo batte, but he tanks hits and heals(not sure how many times he can heal because she keeps dying). last battle i was super aggressive yet he left me alone over half the battle. guess im gonna have to stop hording material and finally upgrade some weapons.

                  strangely, when accepting her vow the voiceover omits the part starting "and even if all should turn against you..."

                    Okay, figured out why she didn't show up in my world. I had not gotten a second encounter with her in Firelink, nor did I see her sign before the Sulyvhan's Beast. Did I reload the world? Yes! Was I embered? Yes! Did I give a tongue to Rosaria? No! Did I exhaust her dialogue during the first encounter? Yes! Did I find the Dreamchaser's Ashes? Yes! So what was wrong? Turns out, when you give the Dreamkeeper's Ashes to the Shrine Handmaid, SAY WHERE YOU GOT THEM FROM. I said no so I could see the alternate dialogue, and THAT'S what caused Sirris to fail to show up for the second encounter and not have a sign near the Beast. However, this did not fail the questline (thank god), and I was later able to summon myself to kill Hodrick in front of the Curse-Rotted Greatwood. But mother mercy, I swear I thought I'd either bugged or botched something.

                          There is no way you can figure it out by yourself. This quest literally required you not kill Curse rotted greatwood until you beat Aldrich.

                              Ganks and can't kill anything even with darkmoon blade. Most worthless npc summon in the game. I accepted her knightly vows, murdered her in front of her own grandmama, and dung pied her corpse.

                                I lit the bonfire past the bridge and realised I had forgotten the dreamchaser ashes. After getting them and obtaining darkmoon loyalty gesture I returned to irythil and her sign doesnt show up. Yes im embered.
