      I have a lore theory to propose.
      There are 3 of these in one playthrough, and you can only get them by normal means by finding them in NG+
      Now the item description says this: Soul found in the corpse of a champion of legend.

      Used to acquire enough souls to sate a lord
      I think that two of the three souls are actually the souls of the chosen undead and the bearer of the curse.
      Now you might be wondering, what about the third?
      the fact that you can only get this item in NG+ shows that The Ashen One has already completed their journey and has now linked/ ended or usurped the fire and started their second journey.
      This makes me believe the thirds soul is the ashen ones soul.

      This is just a theory but I think it's pretty cool to think about, I don't know what they are doing in the places where you find them

          Idk how this guy did it since you can only carry 99. But during an Anor Londo invasion I got invaded by two clearly very experienced players. I faced the first one while the 2nd stood back. When I finally killed the 1st one, the one waiting started applauding me and started dropping multiple stacks of 99. I got about 850 of them before, as I was picking up the last stack, he backstabbed me, almost killed me, dropped another stack, and then backstabbed me again as I picked it up and waved farewell. As I was dying I watched him run off and kill himself. I hope he still got the Souls from having butchered me

            I find it interesting how this and the old hand souls have a more yellow-ish tone compared to the usual white souls you can loot from corpses.

              I'm pretty sure the type of Soul you loot from areas keeps increasing until NG +7. Like for example if you loot a soul of a Proud Paladin from a certain spot in NG, by the time you reach NG+7 it should atleast be a Large Soul of a Proud Paladin. I'm starting over on a new account and I'm in NG+3 and there's a lootable Soul at the end of the bridge that leads to Yhorm's Boss Room (it's the bridge after you climb down the ladder where the Fire Orbs are launched at you from a cauldron and the spear wielding Gargoyle also fights you) and I know that the souls eventually turns into a Soul of a Great Champion. I picked it up in NG+3 and it hadn't yet turned into a Soul of a Great Champion so I think there is more progression than these pages are describing.

                i didn't know these were NG+ exclusive, so i thought there was just 50K souls sitting in archdragon peak in my NG+0 game

                  I was at the midway fortress bonfire before the crystal sage and I was invaded by this person. they watched me kill a giant crab, applauded me then gave me 99 of these and just left. I dont know what to say. That person was so kind compared to the stereotypical "git gud" merciless backstabby players online. This game has a great community

                    I just tried to get the one from the Millwood Ruins in Ariandel, in NG+ of course, only to find a Soul of a Venerable Old Hand. Can someone confirm?

                        On my first ever play through of the game I just found four of these lying at the entrance to the grand archives. Probably someone who invaded when I didn’t notice, but I was still confused

                            I asked some guys for weapons and they did give me some and help me out with a boss, but one guy told me to go to lothric wall and summon him, he was a dark spirit summon so I thought I was in for a trap, but this guy drops 99 of these. It was insane.

                              I ended up having to force invade some guys (was with Watchdogs of Farron) and I just ended up not fighting and leaving(dying by jumping from a high point). They later messaged me and we ended up playing for awhile. Turns out they’re veterans at the game and gave me a bunch of these for me and my buddy to use and level up. 10/10 would invade those guys again

                                Shoutout to "Minerva" for dropping 30 of these badboys on my "Jax Kezia" character, along with over a hundred embers a quintuple siegbrau shot, and a plethora of survival items. I wish I was a noob, because a pubstomper like me feels guilty for the favour.
