First encounter dialogue

Oh, your head's square on your shoulders, is it?
I thought that clamouring tin can was the last, but here we go again.
What is it you want from this old stone-humped hag?
I've nothing for you, not a smithereen. I just like to stand here, and take in the view.

Well, that came out of nowhere.
You think an old stone-humped hag would be brimming with goodies?
I've none of that, not a smithereen.
Strange little lad, you are.
Strange little lass, you are.
What on earth do you see in me?

At the close of the Age of Fire, all lands meet at the end of the earth.
Great kingdoms and anaemic townships will be one and the same.
The great tide of human enterprise, all for naught.
That's why I'm so taken by this grand sight.
This must be what it's like to be a god.

Oh, if you just can't stop yourself, at least hear this.
Far below, there's a deep, dark hole carved out of a tree.
From time to time, voices brim from the depths of the cavity even now.
Mutterings of the very demon that Prince Lorian spoke of, I'm sure.
Horrible sounds, of an afflicted thing yet cursing men.

Why, where did you hear that name, love?
Oh, it doesn't matter. I'll tell you what I know.
The Ringed City is said to be at world's end.
Past this heap of rubbish, as far as one can go.
But you'd better think twice.
The forsaken Ringed City was walled off by the gods to contain the pygmies.
...and the dark soul is better left well alone.

Ahh, yes, it's just what you'd guess.
Legend says that the Ringed City lies at the end of the earth.
This heap of everything, you're looking right at it.
But be warned.
The pygmies were exiled to the Ringed City.
And no one should go near the dark soul.

You're not willing to reconsider, are you?
Well, that's just fine. It's a rare thing, to have a true duty.
Don't go and take it for granted, I suppose.
Won't do any better than this, not you or that poor tin can.
Keep your marbles intact, love.
At least until I lose mine.

When you see that tin can, pass the word along.
I'm afraid he's a little too brave for his own good.
Don't run off and die, love.
It's a nicer view with you in it.

...My time has come, has it?
Well, maybe I'll get to see an angel.


  • Looks the same as Londor Pilgrims.
  • Description of Old Woman's Ashes says that the hag was once wet-nurse of royalty. The Priestess Ring, which is associated with the Shrine Handmaiden makes a similar reference, suggesting that the hag is Shrine Handmaiden.

      "You think an old stumped hag would be brimming with goodies?"

      Ma'am you have one of the best weapons in the game.

        I won't say she's the Shrine Handmaiden. I always assumed that she's Emma, The High Priestess of Lothric that gives you the Banner to traverse to the Undead settlement or later one the basin of vows for Lothric castle. Makes more sense.

          I don't think she became the angel. Her body would've turned into one of those gross-ass tree pilgrims. The angel totes killed her.

            Personally, after beating all dlcs, seeing this woman turned into an angel was quite a happy closure to the game. She is one of a few NPC who won't harm nor demand anything from player, and she "just likes to stand here, and take in the view." Now she is an flying angel, she can enjoy the view from many directions in the sky. That "must be what it's like to be a god." The angel flies in circle looking down the place screaming for joy.

              I returned, saw the passive angel, and shot it down. If that really is the old woman, doubt she is happy wailing like that, in that hideous form.

                Random thought but could she meant to be the old woman which we hear in the intro? (I know they have different voice actors but that's not my point)

                  I noticed in nowhere on this page does it mention she drops a Titanite Slab when you come back after she dies. Surely this happened to other people besides me??

                    I think either she became the angel, or she was killed by an angel. I shot the angel with a Dragonslayer Greatbow, and it only shot one volley of darts (arrows?) at me before it returned to being creepy.

                      Will the people who write this wiki stop pulling random theories out their asses?! They should put solid fact instead of theories. Like, what stops me from saying that Rosaria is Sif in a costume?

                        "She's not the Shrine Handmaid, she's clearly Emma!" ...How is that any better of a theory? Emma wasn't a Hollow from Londor, and she certainly didn't need to make a pilgrimage just to reach the very castle of which she was the High Priestess... I'm all for grimdark theories, but honestly, I think she's just an old lady who happened to be a wet nurse for an unspecified land's royalty--most likely that of Londor. If so, it would make sense that she would provide merchandise to the player, considering they potentially fill the role of "Lord of Londor."

                        Either way she's chill af and I'm proud of my stone-humped grandma.

                          She's an angel now... Albeit a very creepy and disturbing sounding one, but still, happy for her ...I guess, if this is all a good thing for her.
