Holy Knight Hodrick is a character and enemy in Dark Souls III. He is voiced by Sean Barret.



Hodrick is the leader of the Mound-makers covenant and inducts the player into their ranks. Once talked to and after answering the question he poses, he will present the covenant item to the player, a malformed vertebra. Since supposedly there is no way to leave the pit where he dwells in, he will also gift the player with a Homeward Bone as a means of escape. The player may save its usage by exiting and continuing the game, though; upon return, they will spawn at the cliff with the non-hostile Hollow Manservant.

If the player has not yet defeated the Curse-rotted Greatwood, he will invade near the Dilapidated Bridge, whether he was met in the Pit of Hollows or not. Upon defeat, the player will be awarded a Vertebra Shackle.

Hodrick is revealed to be Sirris's grandfather and the person she has been searching for on her questline. If the player assists her against Creighton in Irithyll and has defeated the Curse-rotted Greatwood, they can be summoned into her world. Her summon sign can be found just outside of the Greatwood's boss arena in the Undead Settlement.

Sirris eventually finds her grandfather, but in his deluded state he is unable to recognize her and is forced to kill him with the player's assistance.

  • Hodrick is the leader of the Mound-makers.
  • Hodrick is revealed to be Sirris's grandfather.
    • A unique Budding Green Blossom can be purchased from the Shrine Handmaid after defeating Aldrich. Its description says: "Good-bye, dear Grandmother. I will visit Grandfather, in the Pit of Hollows.", which may imply that the handmaid is actually Sirris's grandmother, and, possibly, Hodrick's wife.
  • Hodrick's body can be found in the lower part of the Curse-rotted Greatwood's boss arena, which is revealed to be the Pit of Hollows.
