Witch Beatrice is an NPC Phantom is Dark Souls

 

Witch Beatrice Information

Beatrice is a self made woman, and somewhat of a rogue witch. She was never a student of the Vinheim Dragon School, but learned her trait from her elders, like a proper witch should. Her catalyst is also handed down, from a lineage of witches, and bears the marks of casting age-old sorceries.

  • This witch can be summoned to help you fight the Moonlight Butterfly in Darkroot Garden. The sign to summon her is at the bottom of the tower hidden in a bush. Summoning her makes this boss trivial, and if you want a challenge is not recommended.
  • She can also be summoned in the fight against the Four Kings, but only if she was summoned for the Moonlight Butterfly fight. Her summon sign is hidden behind the square tower just before entering the fog.
    • You do not have to kill the butterfly to make her sign appear in New Londo, it should be enough to summon her in the forest and send her home.
  • It is worthy of note, her armor set and her catalyst can be found, after defeating Four Kings, in the Valley of Drakes near the shortcut door and cave to Blighttown.
  • She, like the chosen undead, wanted to fight the Four Kings and did so before the time of New Londo's flooding. This makes her ancient in the storyline.
  • She was also one of the three people able to traverse the abyss. The Chosen Undead (player character), and Artorias being the other two.
  • If you are having hard time defeating Four Kings, summoning her can make the fight harder because she is counted as helping phantom and Co-op rules applies for boss fight.

      Since this Beatrice has short blonde hair and fights a butterfly together with a guy who dies all the time and happens to be a witch with the same name as the Golden Witch, an Umineko reference is possible!

      Simply, by the existence of this choice of name, this level of reasoning is possible for Furudo Erika! What do you think everyone?

        Beatrice is a beast. During the 4 kings fight, she was doing almost 1000 dmg per hit. Definitely a powerful asset.

          The armor description literally says she did not live to tell the tale. Apparently she was not able to traverse the abyss.

            I summoned her for the 4 Kings fight, but she was vanquised before I could jump into the hole. What gives?

              Any kind of source for the "wanted to fight the Four Kings and did so before the time of New Londo's flooding. This makes her ancient in the storyline."?
              Absolute first I've heard of this

                No you can't go back and summon her at the garden after the butterfly fight. I just checked. Now I'm going up have to join playstation online to get people to help me with the five kings.

                  Somehow I'm not able to summon her in the NG+ even though I'm in human form. Just defeated Gargoyles and got to the place her sign should be but I don't see it. Has anyone seen this too?

                    FYI In the Remaster I never summoned her and still found her gear in the Valley of Drakes (Firelink shortcut).

                      Would had been cool if the player had to fight her post Kings fight. You know, she goes Hollow. Where could the fight take place?

                        i like this summon for both moonlight and four kings, NG+ +5 BKGS i summoned her and she dealt far more damage than me so i spent the fight distracting the kings and taking all the damage for her

                          "She was also one of the three people able to traverse the abyss." literally anyone you summon can traverse the abyss and there's no reason to assume player-summons are different than npc-summons. she just happens to /be there/. who writes these fan-theories?

                            You can't summon her if you're wearing the Cat Covern Ring - don't know if that's true for al;l summons, but yeah.

                              Last time I summoned her for the Four Kings she started shooting magic at nothing before I even got to the boss and then died somehow.

                              Remastered btw

                              • I sincerely think i hate and love her at the same time, in the moonlight butterfly fight shes the most useful summon ever, but at the four kings she just stares with the shield up instead of attacking with magic while i have my life sucked by that grab attack

                                  I would have to disagree with the part that mentions to not summon her for the butterfly if you want a challenge. The butterfly is a battle of patience rather than difficulty. Beatrice here saves you that wasted time.

                                    Me after the Moonlight Butterfly fight with Beatrice: Uuuuumm...B-Beatrice, w-w-would you like to come along for the rest of the game, too? IF, you w-want that is! Don't hurt me with your nuclear god magic!

                                        That moment when you were weak and beaten moonlight butterfly on your own then you regret doing this at 4 kings fight :(

                                          I didn't summon her in the darkroot garden and want to summon her to fight the four kings, but can't find her symbol... Do I have to fight 'em now all alone?!

                                          • Witch Beatrice's gear will spawn once the Four Kings have been defeated, this is even without Summoning her. Appears her gear trigger is being Summoned for M.L Butterfly and Four Kings death.

                                              Don't even consider summoning her for the Four Kings fight. When you plummet into the Abyss she'll lose like 75% of her health from fall damage (playing the PS3 version btw). Can't wait to pillage her corpse once I get this fight out of the way, doing it solo.

                                                In my playthrough she didn't do anything during the butterfly fight. Thank god I am a sorcerer bc she didn't cast a single spell.

                                                  I know in the Japanese community, a lot of fans commonly theorize that she's a witch descended from Oolacile, or possibly lived in Oolacile in the time of Artorias, which would explain her ability to traverse the Abyss as well as the "age-old sorcery" she inherited. Her catalyst also branches out in the same way of both the Oolacile Ivory Catalyst and the Oolacile Catalyst. More unsettling is the realization that her garb and color schemes are quite similar to those of the Oolacile sorcerers, who may be relatives of hers that succumbed to the Abyss, though why she was spared is unknown.
