I couldn't help myself!
You encounter the Scholar three times throughout the game:
1) After the last primal boss you've killed.
2) At the entrance to the Undead Crypt
3) At the Dragon Shrine bonfire
As many of us have guessed, the Scholar is Aldia! He directs the chosen undead towards several goals, including to seek out Vendrick and to seek the throne. If the chosen undead has killed King Vendrick and defeated Nashandra, Aldia appears one final time - this time as the true, final boss of Dark Souls II!
Killing him presents the chosen undead with a choice, much like former Souls games: ascend the throne as the worthy monarch or usher in an age of dark.
