Dusk of Oolacile

Dusk, after being rescued from Manus


Dusk is a princess-sorceress from the long fallen land of Oolacile, where unique sorceries were crafted. At some point in the past, her home town was destroyed. It is unclear what caused the city to fall. At some point after this, she was trapped in a Golden Crystal Golem. Since the Crystal Golems are the results of Seath the Scaleless' experiments, it is likely that he is responsible for Dusk's imprisonment.

In the additional content, we get to see how her city was destroyed. During Dusk's time, Oolacile awakened Manus, Father of the Abyss at the urging of a Primordial Serpent. Manus then proceeded to spread the Abyss across the land and captured Dusk from the present time. The Knight Artorias, who arrived in Oolacile to repel the Abyssal forces, attempted to rescue her, but he was overwhelmed and became corrupted by the Abyss. She is finally rescued by the player after defeating Manus, although mentally scarred and incoherent from her experience. If you visit her in the Darkroot Basin after defeating him, she mentions being captured and being subsequently rescued by "Artorias", and having little memory of the event. She then realizes that your character was the one who rescued her, and not Artorias as she previously believed.


Darkroot Basin
Her summon sign is right at the edge of the lake where the Hydra was located, a few feet away from the corpse holding the Knight Set, but only after killing the Hydra and defeating the Golden Crystal Golem she is captured in.

Chasm of the Abyss
Right after you defeated the boss, she will appear where the boss is killed. You can only speak to her, and when you leave the area, she will be back in Darkroot Basin.


Getting Dusk as Merchant

  1. Kill the Hydra in the Darkroot Basin. This will spawn a Golden Crystal Golem in the alcove behind the Hydra.
  2. Travel along the lake by the waterfall all the way back to the alcove. Since you will be walking through water, it is recommended to equip the Rusted Iron Ring during this section.
  3. You should see the Golden Crystal Golem. If you don't see the Golem, try quitting and reloading.
  4. Defeat the golem. During its death animation, Dusk will appear where it was standing.
  5. Dusk will thank you for freeing her and asks you if you need her magic. Answer "Yes" and she will tell you that you can summon her to buy magic spells from her. If you answer "No" she will disappear and not be available for the rest of that playthrough.
  6. Now you can summon her via her summon sign.1 For some reason, it may occur that her summon sign will not be visible. It will, however, still be present in the water at the edge of the lake near the boulder, and it can be activated by moving around the area until the context menu for summoning her appears.

  • After being summoned for the first time, the Antiquated armor set can be found near where you fought the Golden Crystal Golem.
  • Despite being summoned via a phantom sign, she can in fact be killed.
  • If you have the Additional Content, after getting the Broken Pendant, her summon sign will disappear until you have defeated Manus. The spells and catalyst she sells from that point are transferred, and shared, with Elizabeth. You must defeat the Sanctuary Guardian in order to access them again.
  • You don't need to be in human form to summon her after saving her.
