"The home of Pyromancy, Izalith, was scorched by the very fire it created.
Undoubtedly, it was a flame of chaos, tangled by a witch's hand.
But who's to say that this Bonfire's flame is any different?"
— Cornyx of the Great Swamp

Cornyx of the Great Swamp is a character and merchant in Dark Souls III. He sells pyromancies and reinforces the player's Pyromancy Flames in Firelink Shrine after he has been freed from his cage in the Undead Settlement.


Cornyx is first found locked inside of a small cage in the Undead Settlement, in a scaffolding of the small fortress found near the guillotine and where three hollows throw firebombs from above.

To reach him, drop from the right side of the bridge nearby and onto a ledge below. Follow the only path available (lighting the Cliff Underside bonfire along the way), which leads to a piece of roof and the scaffolding of the structure, and eventually to Cornyx's cage. When asked, agree to become his pupil in the arts of pyromancy.

Once he relocates to Firelink Shrine, he can be found in the basement, near to the base of the staircase on the east wing, and reside there for the rest of the game.
