"Greetings, Undead warrior. I am the primordial serpent Darkstalker Kaathe. I can guide thee, and illuminate the truth. Undead Warrior, conqueror of the Four Kings; is this not your wish? To know the truth of men, and the Undead?"
— Darkstalker Kaathe

Darkstalker Kaathe is a character in Dark Souls. He is a primordial serpent with the primary goal of bringing about the Age of Dark. He is voiced by Peter Marinker, who also voiced Kingseeker Frampt and Eingyi.

LocationEdit

Darkstalker Kaathe will appear in the Abyss, after defeating the Four Kings, if the player has not already placed the Lordvessel through Kingseeker Frampt.

PlotEdit

Darkstalker Kaathe greets the Chosen Undead and tells his side of the story: that the player is not to renew the Age of Fire by rekindling the First Flame, but is in fact the descendant of the one who possessed the "Dark Soul", and shall be responsible in bringing about the Age of Dark. Kaathe will transport the player to Firelink Altar in order to place the Lordvessel, and then instructs the player to collect the other Lord Souls in order to confront Gwyn, Lord of Cinder.

Kaathe can initiate players into the Darkwraith covenant.

Frampt or Kaathe?Edit

Placing the Lordvessel while under the care of either of the serpents will result in the loss of the other. Frampt provides the service of breaking down larger Titanite pieces and can get rid of items in exchange for souls, while Kaathe provides Cracked Red Eye Orbs to the player while a member of his Covenant. How much of an enthusiast players are for invading other people's worlds is the deciding factor.

The choice of the primordial serpent the player sides with has no effect on the ending of the story.

NotesEdit

  • It is possible to join the Darkwraith Covenant without placing the Lordvessel and thus not alienate Kingseeker Frampt. After answering "Yes" to Darkstalker Kaathe's question and being transported to the Firelink Altar - do not place the Lordvessel. Instead, use a Homeward Bone, or similar method, to exit. As long as one does not place the Lordvessel neither serpents will depart. In this way, the player can be both part of the Darkwraith Covenant and use Frampt's "Feeding" service.
  • It is presumed that the Chosen Undead's ancestor, that Kaathe mentions, is the Furtive Pygmy.
  • Kaathe will depart if the Chosen Undead places the Lordvessel while Kaathe is not present.

TriviaEdit

  • It's actually possible to kill Darkstalker Kaathe, but only through the use of third party programs. Kaathe has 24,464 HP and drops 5,000 souls upon death.
