Anastacia of Astora
Anastacia of Astora


A mute woman from a village in Astora, her tongue has been removed so that she can't say any god's name in vain. Anastacia is Firelink Shrine's Fire Keeper, bound to the bonfire to keep it lit.


Firelink Shrine
In a cell, down the stairs next to the Crestfallen Warrior.


"The Murderer" Quest Line

Knight Lautrec of Carim murders Anastacia when either one of the following occurs regardless if the player freed him or not:

If you check Anastacia’s cell, you find her dead body, her clothes, and the Black Eye Orb. The Firelink Shrine bonfire no longer functions.

The Black Eye Orb can be used in Anor Londo, in the large hall right outside of the Ornstein and Smough boss room. You have a message pop up that says the Black Eye Orb is reacting to something and should now be usable in that area. Use the Black Eye Orb to invade Lautrec’s world.

After you win, you receive her Fire Keeper Soul. You may use it like any other Fire Keeper Soul, but uniquely, if you go back to her cell in Firelink Shrine, you can revive Anastacia.


  • Like any other Fire Keeper, her bonfire becomes unusable when she dies, although it will still be warpable.
  • Like any other Fire Keeper Soul, her soul is unique. When you take her soul from Knight Lautrec of Carim, if you want to revive her, you can only use that soul and no other.
  • You can use her Fire Keeper Soul from a previous playthrough, using the New Game Plus mechanic, to revive her, meaning that the moment you get the Black Eye Orb, you can make her bonfire and services usable again. Even if she's alive from this method, you can invade Lautrec and get the Fire Keeper Soul and usual loot from him as normal.
  • This NPC has unused dialogue lines.
  • She is the only human NPC who cannot be killed by the player.
