Irina was a frail woman. This frailty led to her becoming a saint of Carim, and to her grand treachery.

— Description of Irina's Ashes


Found in the Undead Settlement within a cell, guarded by Eygon of Carim. She can be found near to the Giant's tower from the Cliff Underside bonfire. A one-way door prevents you from immediately reaching her.

To get to her initially, you will need the Grave Key. From the Cliff Underside bonfire, head to the sewer entrance nearby and on the left-hand side of the sewer passage is a locked door. Open it with the Grave Key and proceed through the catacombs into a massive pit. Continue forward and enter the room to the left in the cliff face, climbing the ladder found within the room. Once at the top, continue forward to find her to the left and the shortcut door to the right.

It is possible to drop down into the valley and survive in certain places, saving you the 1500 souls. This requires approximately 24 Vigor. The best spot to drop down is probably right next to Eygon. The fall damage should then be somewhere between 500 and 570. You can survive it at 11 Vigor while in ember form.

General Information

Always exhaust the dialogue of Irina to ensure she moves onto each stage of her storyline.

  1. Find the Mortician's Ashes near to the arrow-laden area in the Undead Settlement. Give them to the Shrine Handmaid to unlock the Grave Key. Buy it for 1,500 souls.
  2. Open the door near to the Cliff Underside bonfire in the Undead Settlement to rescue Irina. She will move to Firelink Shrine.
  3. Bring her the two of the braille tomes. They are:
  4. Depending on what miracles you buy, you will get either a Holy or Dark ending:
    • Holy: Give her the Braille Divine Tome of Carim and Braille Divine Tome of Lothric then buy all the associated Light miracles of them and all her default miracles. Do not buy any dark miracles. (If you gave her a dark tome but do not purchase any of the dark miracles, she will leave the those tomes eventually for you to pick up again, you can then give them to Karla to learn from).

      She will appear in the Fire Keeper tower, where she will allow you to level up for souls just like the Fire Keeper. The Shrine Handmaid will sell Eygon of Carim's armor (only after all the bosses he can be summoned in are deafeated). His weapons can be found in Irina's cell in the Undead Settlement. If you gave her the Londor Braille Divine Tome or Deep Braille Divine Tome but didn't buy the miracles they will appear on the ground next to her. You can force these on Karla to buy the dark miracles
    • Dark: Give her the Londor Braille Divine Tome or Deep Braille Divine Tome, and buy the dark miracles associated with them.

      She will move to the Iudex Gundyr bonfire. You will need to fight Eygon of Carim to return her to Firelink Shrine. Afterwards she will be absorbed by the darkness and refuse to accept any divine tomes or sell any miracles. Upon purchasing and equipping Eygon's gloves, she will believe you are him and beg you to kill her.
