Alvina of the Darkroot Wood

Alvina of the Darkroot Wood is a Character in Dark Souls.



Alvina the Cat is a character in Dark Souls who lives in the upper part of the Darkroot Garden, past the door locked by the King's Seal., unlocked through the Crest of Artorias which is purchasable from Blacksmith Andre for 20,000 souls. Alvina can be found in a stone castle straight through the wood from the door, crouching in a window. If you talk to her and choose the right options (YES both times), you can join her Covenant, the Forest Hunters. She will then give you the Cat Covenant Ring, which will allow her to summon you to her aid in protecting the forest from others that have sinned against her covenant.
If you attack her she laughs furiously and says, "What a fool we have! What a wretched fool we have!", before disappearing.




  • Killing one intruder as part of the Forest Hunter covenant will result in Alvina giving the player a Divine Blessing. Killing 3 trespassers of The Forest will grant the Ring of Fog.



  • Nothing. Attacking Alvina simply causes her to disappear. However, angering Alvina of the Darkroot Wood will be considered as NPC Hostility Sin. (PvE sin)

        This crazy feline said a load of mad, indecipherable gibbering about some nonsense I've never heard of and then I was asked "YES or NO". Well, I'm not the kind of person to just rashly agree to something I don't understand that could be legally binding, so I prudently said NO. Seems that was the wrong answer and this ****ing cat is butthurt at me now. Lame.

          One funny thing you can do while referencing this covenant and Alvina is you can take pictures of cats irl in weird spots and then post it with caption "Join this covenant?"

            Alvina: I shall summon others who by their honour will work tirelessly with thee! ..... Others stand aside and do nothing.

              I'm curious to her relationship with Sif, she leads to rescue him in Chasm of the Abyss while he's still a puppy and stays with him till he's several centuries old.

                  I just beat the dlc for the first time and it raises some serious questions about this character. She was around in the Abyss to lead me to Sif. So she can either walk through time herself, or she is just very very old (and remember, the only other people who live that long are gods. Even Sif went from a puppy to full grown in that time. Alivna still looks the same). Also, she cares about Sif and wants me to find him, or at least wants me to defeat Manus and knows Sif can help. I'm sure this kitty has an angle of some kind, I just don't know what it is!
