      Huh, his soul looks more like a soul dreg than a humanity to me... They seem similar, but that would imply a connection to the Deep, not the Abyss.

      Although, we DO fight him in a *deep* cavern flooded with water—in fact, it's the same, corpse-laden water we find in Aldrich's chamber. You can also see from the stone bridge that Midir falls through the surface of the black swamp, meaning this cavern is somewhere below the water...

      Maybe the Abyss represents a single human will that takes command of all others, whereas the Deep represents an amalgam of human souls lacking a dedicated goal? That would make sense then for his soul to resemble a spell associated with the Deep instead. It even looks like it's sinking downward.

          Ok Im confused. I thought archdragon are soulless? Am I missing something? We know the Ancient Dragon in DS2 is a fake because she dropped a soul of giant upon death. So why would Midir drops his soul if he’s a true archdragon?

   was he eating humans who have the dark soul within them hence the phrase "let the feast begin"? Kinda explains all the body's in his arena and why his soul has humanity in it.

              Lel, from software is trying it best to confirm what is was plain and clean from the first game - true dragons had a dark souls. Thats why gods hunt them down and then make this elaborate lie. But i bet some of vadyavidia fans would still to thick to get it even after whole DS3 game and then this boss, which clearly has a dark soul, but what even more important dark souls is not get him mad of "corrupt" as it goes with golden-souls creatures which has possessed "tain" by dark souls. Artorias get mad just by waling in abbys, filthy xennos as he is.

                So what's the whole deal with his soul having the look of a Humans (there's even the humanity eyes). Not to mention that it also looks like Manus's soul. So does this mean Midir was also corrupted (he doesn't act it). Just a little confused, if someone could explain a little that would be much appreciated.

                  Killed him with a crit and he fell off the bridge dying, no souls, no items, nothing. Dragon is gone now and i am sad.

                      I honestly believe that Midir is a decendant of Seath. They both don't have eyes, that's just something I noticed right away. Also his soul says that he was raised by the gods. The gods hated all of the dragons, except Seath. So why would they put in the time to raise a dragon unless it was somehow related to the god's only dragon ally.

                          Having defeated him I went to get the moonlight, only to find I never got his soul? Anyone else have this problem? I have soooo many boss souls because I never use them for their cost, so I seriously doubt that I used it.
