"You're here to save me...?
But I am guilty. A wretched child of the Abyss.
Is that something you can forgive?"
— Karla

Karla is a character and merchant in Dark Souls III. She sells dark pyromancies, dark sorceries and dark miracles in Firelink Shrine after she has been freed from her cell in the Irithyll Dungeon.


Karla is a child of the Abyss, clad in grey, tattered robes and wearing a hat not unlike the one worn by Witch Beatrice. She is ashamed of her origins, but will agree to teach the Ashen One numerous dark spells, as well as certain standard pyromancies.


Karla is located in a locked cell in the lower level of the Irithyll Dungeon. In order to unlock it, the player must have the Jailer's Key Ring, found in the Profaned Capital, and then go back to the Irithyll Dungeon once more to free her.

After exhausting her dialogue and agreeing to rescue her, Karla will relocate to Firelink Shrine and become a merchant there. She can be found under the stairs to the left of Andre's smithy.

  • Karla's character is based largely on that of Yuria the Witch from Demon's Souls, including her set mimicking the Old Raggedy Set as well as being rescued from a prison so that she will teach the player character heretical magic. As well, both characters are voiced by the same voice actress.
