First encounter dialogue

"Welcome. To the painted world of Ariandel.
I am Friede. I have long stood beside our blessed Father, and the rest of the Forlorn.
But Forlorn thou seemeth not.


Lord of Hollows, I know not the missteps which led thee to this painted world.
But thy duty is all, and thy duty lieth elsewhere.
Return from whence thou cam'st.

I presume it visible to thee? The bonfire here, in this room.
A meek and faded thing, but 'twill guide thee nonetheless.


Upon Giving Chillbite Ring


Ahh yes, there is a thing thou shouldst by rights possess.
A remembrance of this cold world, for the great Lord of Londor.
May it help thee bear thy duty.
(hands you the chillbite ring)
Now, return from whence thou cam'st.
Thou'st a place in that world, and that alone is cause to rejoice.

Upon opening Shortcut

Be forewarned, eager Ash,
Should this world wither and rot,
Even then would Ariandel remain our home.
Leave us be, Ashen One.
Sweep all thought of us from thy mind. As thy kind always have.

[If Yuria's questline is completed]
Be forewarned, eager Ash,
Should this world wither and rot,
Even then would Ariandel remain our home.
Leave us be, Ashen One.
Thou'rt the Lord of Londor, and have thine own subjects to guide.

Upon triggering Boss Fight

Fret not father, we have no need of thy flail.
Tis only the flame, quivering at misguided Ash.
Please, avert thine eyes.
I will snuff out these ashes for good. 



During Boss Fight

 (Dialogue, first phase, player dies)

Return from whence thou cam'st
For that is thy place of belonging.

(first phase, player-Lord of Londor dies)

Return from whence thou cam'st
Yuria surely awaits thee.


(second phase, player dies & third phase, player dies)

Leave us be, Ashen One.
Sweep all thought of us from thy mind. As thy kind always have.


(second phase, player-Lord of Londor dies & third phase, player-Lord of Londor dies)

Leave us be, Ashen One.
Thou art the Lord of Londor and have thine own subjects to guide.

        Defeated Sister Friede and did not get a Titanite Slab at any point through the fight, checked inventory and storage and it's nowhere. Anyone else have this issue?

          I rate the feet 8/10 , well she is a warrior girl but she's not wearing any boots during the fight therefore the soles of her feet must be bruised. Still she's a second after #1 Rosaria whos feet lie gracefully on her bed for us to admire, truly 10/10

            1st phase: Pretty good. 3rd phase: Fantastic! 2nd phase: A shrieking idiot banging his pot. Could do without it...

                If you look closely you can see that her eyes blink in an irregular pattern. You can see this more easily if you go behind her and maneuver the camera underneath her hood.

                  If you never talk to her the whole DLC and enter the boss fight, the Chillbite Ring will be on the chair she's sitting on.

                    I don't know if this is a bug or not, but removing your Dark Sigils through the Fire Keeper's healing after you've already finished the Lord of Hollows ending keeps Friede and Vilhelm from referring to you as 'Lord of Hollows.'

                    As a result, I highly recommend that there are those who keep their Dark Sigils regardless of whether or not the storyline is already complete in the case that there are further lore implications should you be Lord of Hollows in the upcoming Ringed City DLC. And possibly even items, yadda yadda, as removing the Sigils seems to strip you of your title.

                      What's her dialogue like when you arnt pursuing the Lord of hollows ending? She told me that I had my own duty in linking the flame and I had no business in their world, but I'm wondering if it's any different when you've already linked the flame
