"Heed my words. If you've any sense, you'll go find a coffin to huddle up inside. You here, in this land of Hollows, you're like a frail maiden on the front lines."
— Eygon of Carim

Eygon of Carim is a character in Dark Souls III. He is voiced by Grahame Fox, who also voices the Cage Madman.


Eygon wears Morne's Set and wields Morne's Great Hammer along with the Moaning Shield.



Eygon is first encountered guarding the cell where Irina is being held. He has an initially negative disposition toward the Ashen One but agrees to ally himself with the Ashen One after Irina is freed from her cell. He makes it clear that the alliance is only valid for as long as Irina is kept safe and warns them that he will make them pay if her safety is at risk. He can then be summoned for the Crystal Sage fight.

If the player kills Irina, Eygon will be waiting for them in the area outside of Firelink Shrine and immediately become hostile. If any dark miracles are purchased from Irina after giving her a forbidden tome, he will kidnap her to "save" her from corruption and become hostile outside Firelink.

Avoiding purchasing any dark miracles from Irina will enable the player to summon Eygon for the Dragonslayer Armour boss fight. His corpse, containing his weapons, can then be found in Irina's old cell in the Undead Settlement, and his armor will be available for purchase from the Shrine Handmaid.

  • Eygon is similar to Garl Vinland from Demon's Souls, wielding a similar shaped weapon and being tasked with protecting a holy maiden. Although Eygon appears to dislike his task compared to Garl, who was completely devoted to Astraea.
  • Eygon uses a shield, a rare trait for Knights of Carim.
