Alsanna, Silent Oracle is a character in Dark Souls II: Crown of the Ivory King. She is voiced by Clare Corbett, who previously voiced Maiden Astraea, the Undead Female Merchant, Gwynevere, Princess of Sunlight and Crossbreed Priscilla.
Alsanna is a mysterious child of the Dark, one of the many fragments of Manus, Father of the Abyss. At an unknown point, she traveled to the northern kingdom of Eleum Loyce, ruled by the Ivory King, and devoted herself to him as his oracle. An ancient Chaos was discovered deep below the land, so in an attempt to appease the raging flame the Ivory King built a great cathedral at its mouth and Alsanna prayed in silent vigilance. The attempt was unsuccessful, and the flames still raged.
Eventually, the Ivory King sensed the degradation of his soul and left Eleum Loyce without a word, leaving everything to Alsanna. He traveled deep into the Chaos until the flames devoured him.
Free the KingEdit
Upon entering the Grand Cathedral, Alsanna can be found at the top of a flight of stairs, surrounded by frozen branches similar to those growing from the Bed of Chaos. She will give some background to the Ivory King and Eleum Loyce when spoken to:
Agreeing to her offer, she replies: "Kind visitor, I thank you. Let me open the path to Chaos. And please, do all you can..."
Next, a beam of light breaks the ice below the staircase, blocking a room that houses a large pit leading to The Old Chaos. The message "Alsanna's seal is undone, and the winds of Eleum Loyce are ceased." will appear, indicating that various frozen parts of the city have now melted. She goes on:
This is an indication to locate the three Knights of Eleum Loyce so that they may provide aid against the Ivory King. Once the Ivory King has been defeated, Alsanna will thank the player and reveal some more of her background and her connection to Manus, Father of the Abyss:
Loyce Knight SoulsEdit
After the King's defeat, Alsanna will mention: "The knights of Eleum Loyce were swallowed by the Chaos... where their souls still remain. I pray for their deliverance." This prompts the side quest to collect Loyce Souls in exchange for pieces of the Loyce Set and eventually her soul.
Every time a Loyce Knight soul is returned to her, she says: "I sense a knight's joyous elation. Kind visitor, please accept my gratitude." Progressively, the formations of ice blocking the stairs will break the more souls are returned. Once 15 souls have been returned, she states:
Once 50 souls have been collected, the final pieces of ice break, allowing the player to meet her. She sits at the top of the staircase, kneeling in prayer. When spoken to, her dialogue will allude to her sisters, Nashandra, Elana and Nadalia:
Once she grants you her soul, she finishes with: "Go on, kind visitor. May you reach your journey's end, one day."
