Anri is a knight hailing from the land of Astora. They are accompanied by Horace, an alleged member of the Blue Sentinels Covenant.


Anri is initially found at the second Road of Sacrifices bonfire, along with their protector Horace the Hushed.

They both can be summoned for the Deacons of the Deep boss fight, their summon signs before the steps leading to the fog gate. Anri can also be summoned for Pontiff Sulyvahn, their summon sign being in front of a prostrating statue to the left of the fog gate.

General Information

This character's gender is dependent on the player's: it will always be the opposite sex. For example, if you are playing as a male Unkindled, Anri will appear as a female knight, and vice versa. This aspect is integral to the character's storyline. Anri is also an Unkindled who is searching for the Lords of Cinder, but their main focus is defeating Aldrich, Devourer of Gods.

Gives the player a Ring of the Evil Eye if the player tells Anri about Horace's location within the Smouldering Lake. Beware that if you dont go and immediately kill Horace after telling Anri about him, Anri will be killed by Horace and the questline will break.

Anri's questline is quite complex and requires a few obscure interactions.

Item Drops

The Elite Knight Set can be bought for 13,500 Souls from the Shrine Handmaid after their defeat.


  • If you fail to kill the disguised Pilgrim in Yorshka's Church when Anri gets here, a Pilgrim can be found just outside Darkmoon Tomb and only Anri's lifeless body will be waiting inside. If this occurs, you will have to attempt Anri's complete questline again in NG+.
  • Anri will not kill Horace. If you tell Anri about Smouldering Lake and leave Horace alive, you will later find Anri's corpse and his/her sword inside the cave where Horace is, at the end of the narrow tunnel.
  • In the case that Anri has progressed to Anor Londo, his/her request sign will not appear if Horace is still alive (though the Prism Stone mark will be there). You will have to go back to Smouldering Lake and kill Horace to progress the quest.
  • If you come back to Darkmoon Tomb after refreshing the area with bonfire, you will find the Pilgrim dead and can pillage Chameleon from his body. You can also loot Anri's Straight Sword from the altar. Upon refreshing the area again, Anri's body will be gone.
  • During the Usurpation of the Fire ending, Anri can be seen on the right among the rest of the hollows. If you bought the Elite Knight Set from the Shrine Handmaid, Anri will be naked for she/he has nothing to wear, otherwise he/she will be wearing the Elite Knight set. *this Note is wrong, only the gender of the player decides if Anri is hollow/naked (male) or in armor (female)*
  • Anri is wearing the Elite Knight armor set from the original Dark Souls whose owner also was from Astora. According to the cut content, that knight was supposed to have his own quest simultaneously and would occasionally meet the player to help each other in their quests.
  • Although Anri's voice changes to the opposing gender of the player's character, her model is always female. The clearest showing of this is during the 'wedding' ceremony when the camera pulls in close on Anri


  • During the wedding, Anri's head under the cloth is actually shrunk down.
