Aldrich Faithful is a covenant in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

The faithful ensure that Aldrich, Devourer of Gods, remains undisturbed, by taking the form of loyal spirits and hunting down those who would trespass the ruined cathedral.


The Aldrich Faithful covenant can be found in the lower plane of Irithyll of the Boreal Valley.

From the Pontiff Sulyvahn bonfire, proceed onward and make way to the other side of the large courtyard with several dead Giant Slaves. Upon entering the main building on the opposite side, hit the wall on the left to reveal an illusory wall concealing the main access to the covenant.

Climb down the large ladder to reach a big, flooded hall. There are two Sulyvahn's Beasts lying in wait once reaching this area, one on the left and one further ahead on the right.

In one corner of the room lie the remains of Archdeacon McDonnell. Interacting with him allows access into the covenant.


The Aldrich Faithfuls protect Lord Aldrich from harmful ash, such as the Ashen One, and claim Human Dregs as their prizes. These may be used to rank up in the covenant for rewards.

How to join[]

To join the Aldrich Faithful covenant, the player must first have cleared the area by defeating both Sulyvahn's Beasts and then proceed to Archdeacon McDonnell's remains and pray to them, at this point they may ask to join and obtain proof of the covenant.


Like the Watchdogs of Farron, Aldrich Faithful will be called upon to defend Aldrich's territory from trespassers; any player who has Host of Embers status will be subject to invasion. This area is defined as anywhere from the courtyard upon exiting Pontiff Sulyvahn's arena, up until the rotating stairway leading up to Anor Londo. Aldrich Faithful can pursue trespassers up into the cathedral itself, but will not be summoned for trespassers who have already reached the upper level bonfire.

Defeating the Host of Embers will reward all present Aldrich Faithful with Human Dregs, which can be offered to Archdeacon McDonnell to deepen their allegiance to the covenant.
