He was one of the Sealers, sorcerers who flooded New Londo to lock away the Darkwraiths and their Kings after they descended into Dark. Of the three Sealers, he's the only known surviving member. He's currently atop the ruins of New Londo, keeping watch over the seal to keep the Abyss from spreading.


New Londo Ruins
Before defeating The Four Kings, he is found on top of a building in the first part of New Londo Ruins.

Firelink Shrine
After defeating The Four Kings, return to his location and talk to him again. Afterwards he will be in Firelink Shrine.


  • Access to the Key to the Seal, which is needed to open a door to provide access to the control that will drain the water in the lower levels towards the Valley of Drakes. This makes it possible to access the lower levels of the New Londo Ruins which in turn provides access to the The Four Kings area boss.
    • If you have retrieved the Lordvessel, upon talking to him, he will give you the key.
    • If you want to access the lower parts of the ruins before getting the Lordvessel, you can kill Ingward and he will drop the key.
  • Ingward can remove your curse for the cost of one Soft Humanity. Use the "Remove Curse" option on his dialogue menu.

Bug Note

  • On the PC version this guy is currently seriously bugged and he may not drop the key when killed, making your playthrough impossible.
