Open the shortcut to Lost Izalith

Chaos Servant is a Covenant in Dark Souls. Led by the "Daughter of Chaos", it located behind a false wall on the first floor of the room behind the boss of Blighttown (Quelaag). To enter the room and gain access to the bonfire and Spider Witch, you will need to tell Eingyi (the creature that blocks the entrance) that you are interested in joining (note that this does not count as committing to the covenant).

Note :

  • Anwsering "No" to Eingyi impedes regular joining until he is either killed or the player requests absolution to Oswald of Carim in the Undead parish. Killing him is not a betrayal to the Chaos Servant covenant, but remember that he gives you a pyromancy flame and sells pyromancies (once you are egg-fected)
    • Workaround: Eingyi can be made to ask the question again by simply quitting and reloading the save while standing in front of him.
  • Getting kicked out of a covenant will earn you a sin.



You must have access to Queelag's Domain (lower Blighttown).
1. Reach Quelaag's Domain and locate the White Spider, who is behind a false wall below the lever to activate the underground bell (see Ancient Spider Witch)
3. Talk to her and select Enter Covenant
3. You will obtain the spell Great Chaos Fireball, and can buy spells from the Egg Burdened nearby.


Effects of covenant

  • Upon joining the Chaos Servant Covenant, you will gain access to two powerful pyromancies, with the second granted at rank 2.
  • If the player kills or harms the Daughter of Chaos, the Covenant will be considered broken.
  • Shortcut to Lost Izalith at rank 2.

You do not have to be a member of the Chaos Servant Covenant for these next things.

  • If you speak to Eingyi (the Undead with eggs on his back) while you have an egg on your head, he will allow you to purchase the spells Poison Mist and Toxic Mist, and also give you a free Egg Vermifuge to remove the egg from your head. These spells will remain available for purchase afterwards, regardless of whether or not you have an egg on your head.
    • Eingyi also sells a Servant Roster, which will let you view all players who are members of the covenant and their contribution to the covenant (how much humanity they've given up kept as a score).
    • Possible glitch : talking to him for the first time after defeating Ornstein and Smough may result in not being able to buy spells. Defeating another boss fixes it.


Rank Rewards

Offer Humanity items to the Daughter of Chaos

Rank Humanity Offered Reward
0 0 Upon joining, receive Great Chaos Fireball
1 10 Nothing
2 30 Receive Chaos Storm and can open the shortcut to Lost Izalith.
3 80 Nothing

*Note: You can leave the covenant after opening the shortcut to Lost Izalith, and it will remain open. However, leaving before doing so means that you cannot open the door until you become Chaos Servant +2 again.*
Offering 30 humanity in a future play-through will not give you additional Chaos Firestorm spells.

Betrayal Penalties

Attacking the Daughter of Chaos counts as betraying the covenant.
Killing the Daughter of Chaos will deactivate the bonfire and give you a Fire Keeper Soul. You can still warp to this fire once deactivated.
If interested on how the egg head looks you can check the following video. Shows the 1st stage of the egg, the hatching and later the larva attack.

How to correctly get infected with eggs:
Equip a low powered weapon (even better, use your bare hand without dragon torso). Then go up to an egg carrier and give them a little tap, but make sure you don't kill them. You can also jump on top of them, or just kick one of them a few times. After that, all you have to do is stand there and wait for the burdened to grab hold of you and impregnate your forehead. This can take a couple attempts for it to stick, but when it does the easiest way to tell is for you to let your character idle. Once your character is idle he will randomly scratch his head. After that it's just a waiting game, but it can take up to 10 minutes for the egg to hatch, and when it does if you go see Eingyi (Egg-burdened npc after Queelag) and he will give you an Egg Vermifuge and access to Poison Mist and Toxic Mist Pyromancy spells.

Effects of egg infestation:

  • The souls you get for killing enemies is reduced by half.
  • You cannot wear a helmet until you remove the egg.

If you do not cure the egghead, then after you collect 100,000 souls it will "upgrade", gaining more effects:

  • The egghead grows larger
  • Your kick is replaced (for ALL weapons) by a unique maggot bite attack. This does miniscule damage, staggers the opponent as if they had been kicked, and has longer range than a normal kick, but it is slower.

The egghead can be cured by using an egg vermifuge. Keep in mind that if you break the chaos servants covenant, you will no longer be able to buy the antidote for the eggs. See the Egg Vermifuge page for alternative ways to obtain them.

        OK. So for CLARITY’S SAKE. The shortcut isn’t the elevator to her right or the wall to her left. The shortcut is the door IN Lost Izalith that leads to the Sunlight Maggot.

          Hey, I offered 30 humanity to her at one point and i cant open the shortcut, nor did i get chaos fire storm, now i just offered her 10 and it said rank gained and i got nothing, did the game just throw away all my humanity? thanks if anyone knows anything

            My covenant of choice as a non-Faith user. Also feeling kinda guilty for murdering her sister and then impersonating her.
            Just a note to self: Keep this covenant a secret from Laurentius :c

              I offered 30 humanity to fair lady but the door at the end of the corridor didn't open. Help? Also, how do I talk to the fair lady? She just says ".....?"

                  Chaos Servant Covenant Route:
                  1) Discover covenant to get achievement (only once per account).
                  2) Join covenant to get Great Chaos Fireball (only once per character).
                  3) Offer 30 humanity to get Chaos Storm (also ony once per character).
                  4) Since that's actually all it has to offer leave the covenant for another and never rejoin again.

                  Tip 1: You don't need this covenant to open Lost Izalith shortcut - any fog-type pyromancy used if front of the doors will do.
                  Tip 2: You don't need this covenant to buy from Eingyi or get his Pyro Flame - you need to get infected with egghead (and have at least 11 Int for flame).
                  Tip 3: You can kill Fair Lady for her Firekeeper Soul to upgrade your Estus Flask since there's another bonfire just around the corner in Demon Ruins (you will still be able to warp here even if bonfire will be out).

                  Only reason for staing in this covenant is when you play offline and don't use pyromancy or miracles but still want to use Izalith shortcut. Otherwise chosing different covenant is always more beneficial.

                    I see a lot of comments about leaving covenant halves rank.. I can attest for a fact this isn't true.. did it on my 2nd playthrough gave the humanity, ranked up to 2, left the covenant because I went on to do something else before hitting up demon ruins. Went up to the shortcut didn't open, went to bonfire switched covenant to chaos(from demon ruins bonfire that the worm guards) went back to the door and it opened.. didn't have to give any more humanity cause I had already given everything I had the first time.. so yea.. don't think the rank halves..

                      bro idk if i did something wrong (i killed Eingyi) but the shortcut doesnt open to me at level 3 of the covenant, i tried to exit and re enter, i already posed the lord vessel, idk what to do about it, now i try to open the yellow fog of lost izalith

                      • Reach Rank 2 to open the shortcut, if you give 80+ humanities in one go you skip the Chaos storm and shortcut, you can repeatedly join and leave the faction to half the rank and allow you to lvl up again.
                        in short, do the donations 10, then claim, then 20 then claim then 60 and claim othing

                            Ive heard that it is possible to rank up to +2 by only offering 15 humanity. I think it as something to do with faith or maybe the sunlight altar. Id really like to know more about this

                              Do you have to still be in the covenant to use the shortcut or can you give the 30 humanities, and switch to another covenant?

                                Hey, so I might’ve killed the guy that sold you stuff and joined the covenant, does that mean there’s no way for me to get any of the stuff he sells anymore? (I’m guessing there’s no way, but I thought I might as well ask anyways, because I keep hitting npc’s that look like enemies and Thai is the third one already and just, why do they make them look like an enemy in the first place?!?)

                                    For anyone reading, be sure to travel down to the Izalith shortcut and open it *BEFORE* you leave the covenant and/or kill the Daughter of Chaos for her firekeeper soul.
                                    I killed her immediately after spending 30 humanity to open the shortcut, only to later find it closed.

                                    • Playing on the PS4 as we speak. Offered 31 humanities, got the spell and thought the shortcut was the wall behind. Nothing happened so I went about playing and joined another covenant. So I rejoined the covenant and was demoted to Chaos Servant +1. But I went through the Demon Ruins anyway - not that I had a choice - and lo and behold the shortcut was open. Was it because I offered more humanities than 30 in one go after first joining? Also I had the same issue isome years before when I played the game on the PS3. I thought I had everything memorized.

                                        Unfortunately my least favorite covenant. I think the lore is great, and the pyromancies are great, but there is no online function unlike every other covenant - except Princess Guard. There is no covenant item to invade in any way and no bonus to pyromancies at higher covenant levels. There is basically no point in remaining in this covenant after you get the rewards and open the shortcut. Princess Guard at least allows you to use some co-op miracles.

                                          So I changed some Covenants, and got demoted from Chaos Servant +2 to just Chaos Servant. Do I have to offer again 30 humanitys to open the shortcut to Lost Izalith? I have not been to the Demon Ruins or any place below that

                                              If anyone is wondering about the location of the shortcut due to the sh*tty description on here, it's NOT at the end of the hall where the Fair Lady is. It's just past the 2nd bonfire where all the Capra demons and stone demons are and to the right, just before the fog wall for the Demon firesage. If you're able to access it, walk up to the wall and press the interact cue and the wall will drop.

                                                I ended up NG +++ at Chaos +2 so I thought maybe I would not need to offer any more humanities to open the shortcut while in ++++. After placing the lord vessel I went down to the door and it opened.

                                                • You know, offered 33 humanities and she still does not talks or the shortcut does not open. Getting humanities isn't a big deal. But where's my reward? I did got the pyromancy that was promised on rank 2. But the shortcut and her talking ability still not working.

                                                    The only thing you get at rank 3 is the new dialogue "Oh, thank you dear sister... It hurts no longer", that's all. It seems the true goal of the covenant is to "heal" the Fair Lady, the more humanity you give her the better her health. At the highest rank 3 she's then much healthier, gives a tiny bit more dialogue, and her legs are moving much more. At the lowest rank she's outright sick and about to die. It also seems the higher your rank, the more her legs move implying she's getting healthier. Sadly, you can never truly cure the Fair Lady of all of her ailments. It also seems like the humanity in the eggs have been drained, causing her strain "Sister… It hurts… the eggs have gone still… I fear it may be too late… I'm so sorry, dear sister" and giving her humanity "heals" the eggs thus healing her. The eggs, and the humanity inside, are probably also helping her function as the fire keeper. Even sadder, Quelaag was hunting people for their humanity so she could use that humanity to heal her sister. Saddest of all? I was told once that the Fair Lady tried to take all the disease that was to infect Blight Town into herself, sacrificing her health to save Blight Town from the disaster spreading from Lost Izalith (same disaster that turned these sisters into half spiders and their brother into the Ceaseless Discharge). I couldn't find much to back that up though, except one quote from Eingyi "Worse than Undead, we are diseased, and unwanted. Like the grime of the Great Swamp. But my dear, Fair Lady! She cried for me... And swallowed the great Blightpus, despite Mistress Quelaag's orders to the contrary". I think the Fair Lady tried to swallow the Blightpus from everyone she could in Blighttown, at the very least all the egg carriers like Eingyi. Lastly, there's hacked/unused dailaogue from Quelaag that suggests that Quelaag would offer the player the covenant instead of the Fair Lady, but it seems like it would've given you the same "reward".

                                                        Just to be clear: the shortcut does NOT open from the dead end in the Fair Lady's room, it is located in the Demon Ruins directly before the fog gate that leads to the Demon Firesage boss fight. You go down some tree roots and there will be a door that only opens if you are a +2 Chaos Servant.

                                                                I gave her more than 30 souls and still i am not rank 2.

I know it doesn't give any benefits, but does she at least get better the more humanity you offer, or will her dialogue change at all (granted you have the ring)? What about rank 3 with 80 humanity?

                                                                    • Anonymous

(It doesn't help either, that the chaos servants don't seem to offer any stat boosts apparently.)
