Undead Prince Ricard

Undead Prince Ricard is a very minor character in Dark Souls.


Prince Ricard is a hollowed enemy found near the top of a tower in the latter half of Sen's Fortress, beyond the Berenike Knight.

He does not respawn when killed.


Even though his armor implies that Ricard was from Astora[1], he is likely a member of Balder's royal family. Ricard journeyed through different lands for a long time until he eventually Hollowed in Lordran.[2]


Ricard wields his Rapier and Buckler for close-range combat, and a Longbow for distant targets. He can parry and riposte attacks. His attacks deal fairly low damage, giving the player a lot of room for error.

  • Since Ricard's Rapier says that he "wandered the lands in a fateful ill-conceived journey" and is praised for (unknown) exploits sung in monomyth, it's possible that Ricard left his kingdom to adventure.
  • Ricard might have been the son of Undead King Jar-Eel due to the similarity between their titles, which could track Ricard's origins back to the four kingdoms. However, that wouldn't make any sense in the final game.
  • Ricard is implied to be the son of Knight King Rendal.
