Crestfallen Merchant
"...Ah, what? What? Who are you? Ahh, another Undead, eh? I took on Sen's Fortress alone... But I'm no different from those vile creatures... I was driven by conceit... Ahh, you think you're different? That you can handle it?"
— Crestfallen Merchant

The Crestfallen Merchant is a character in Dark Souls. A pessimistic merchant, he peddles goods at Sen's Fortress. He is voiced by Andy Gathergood, who also voices Laurentius of the Great Swamp.


  • Found in the later half of Sen's Fortress. On the narrow walkway opposite the Giant depositing boulders, there is a gap. The Crestfallen Merchant is located in the structure after jumping over this gap.


As a pessismistic and guilt ridden merchant, he will often encourage and praise the players efforts while condemning them as futile. His erratic implications can be taken as signs that he's well into becoming Hollowed himself.[1]


The Crestfallen Merchant is slow and wields a cumbersome weapon. These traits make it fairly easy to strafe and hit him with fast attacks before getting out of the way, as well as making him a good target for ripostes.

  • His armor and imposing stature suggest that he could be one of the fabled knights of Berenike. However, he readily admits to looting other Undead before they become Hollowed in order to sell their equipment, thus it is also as likely that he is just a very large man who has donned their armor.
  • Although he appears taller than the player, the Crestfallen Merchant is actually floating in the air.
