Lord of Pessimism
The Crestfallen Warrior is a Character in Dark Souls. He is the first NPC you will meet at Firelink Shrine. He has grown weary of the world and fears his hollowing is inevitable. When engaging in conversation with him, he will reveal useful information about the world and your objectives.
- Be careful if you engage him in combat. At earlier levels it can be very difficult to escape him, especially if your bonfire is set to Firelink.
- If you're starting a new game he can be an easy 1000 souls if you hit him until he attacks then run to the bridge under the entrance to the Undead Burg and jump behind the armored Hollow. You'll be safe and he will die rolling off the cliff.
- His discussions with you become increasingly negative. He is so afraid of dying outside the shrine that he remains there, paralyzed with fear, until his eventual hollowing.
- Once hollowed he moves to the bridge entrance to New Londo Ruins, right below firelink shrine, where he will attack you on sight.
