"Hmph. What a waste of time. Go and fall off a cliff."
— Undead Male Merchant

The Undead Male Merchant is a character located in the Undead Burg. Losing his mind and near-hollow, the Undead Male Merchant finds companionship in "Yulia". He's voiced by Miles Richardson, who also voiced Siegmeyer of Catarina.


The Male Undead Merchant has little to do with the plot, although he does offer useful services to players early in the game. He also mentions that the Capra Demon, the Taurus Demon and the Hellkite Dragon have taken up residence nearby.

The Undead Male Merchant is the only merchant, discounting those found in the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, who sells Lloyd's Talismans in the game. These items are often useful in PvP, so his services may outweigh the Uchigatana and souls that he drops.


The Undead Male Merchant was mistreated in his homeland when he turned undead and so is quite happy with being alone and in Lordran. He implies that abuse inflicted upon the undead is not uncommon. Little else is known about him.


The Undead Male Merchant is relatively mediocre at the stage of the game in which he is encountered, boasting only slightly more HP than the average hollow. His attacks are very slow and easily avoided or parried. On top of all this, he has almost no Poise and is easily staggered. He fights with his Uchigatana and has no shield, allowing the player to kill him quickly. His attacks cause Bleed, without Bloodred Moss Clumps or the appropriate Bleed resistance equipment, the Merchant can quickly Bleed the player to death if given the chance.

  • The Undead Male Merchant is the only merchant in the game that is affected by Undead Rapport. However, due to his slow attack speed, non-existent poise and fragility, it is risky to use him as an ally when putting him in danger.
  • Unlike most NPCs in Dark Souls, his clothing cannot be obtained by the player.
  • The merchant's dead body will always spawn where he was sitting if he is killed even after reloading the area.
