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
    • 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.


  • 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..."

      Sirris of the Sunless Realms? More like Sirris the Useless. Has to be one of the least helpful summons in the series.

          You can safely join to rosaria fingers after defeating the twin princess, at that point her questline will be completed, the talisman will be in hodrick's grave and her armor will be purchased at Shrine Handmaid. (If you followed right)

                Should be mentioned, if you kill invader in pit of hollows without killing invader from the irithril bridge FIRST (cant go back) you'll never get the silver cat ring at that NG. pit of hollows invader has to stay alive for as long as you dont have the ring.

                  It should be mentioned that she sits on the stairs near the fire keeper. Although it may be obvious, it's not shown anywhere EXACTLY where she sits, and if you talked to her and didn't play the game for a year like I did, it would have saved me a few trips around firelink shrine looking for her. In my case, I hadn't gotten dreamchaser's ashes, and I killed all the bosses up to dragonslayer armour, "discovered" rosaria's covenant but didn't use any pale tongues. I was able to find her summon sign after talking to her at firelink and getting the gesture, then I didn't see the sign on the bridge. I went back to make sure she wasn't still at firelink, THEN the sign showed up. Hope this is helpful to someone.

                      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

                              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.
