"Well, this is a surprise. I don't get many visitors, except for ghosts. Do you have some business here? My name is Ingward. I'm an old man, bound to these parts. But I don't mind a chat. I may even be of some help."
— Ingward

Ingward is a character in Dark Souls. He is voiced by Sean Barrett, who also voiced Andre of Astora and Petrus of Thorolund.

LocationEdit

On a platform atop the ladder located in the fireplace-like nook in the New Londo Ruins.

Later is found tucked in a corner in Firelink Shrine near Griggs if he is spoken to after defeating the Four Kings.

PlotEdit

Ingward awaits the one that has obtained the Lordvessel, granting him/her the Key to the Seal which is required to drain water from the lower ruins in order to enter The Abyss.

LoreEdit

Ingward is mentioned to be one of the three sealers who entered the New Londo Ruins in order to flood the area and stop the Four Kings and the Darkwraiths. The other two tired of their duty and left the area, making Ingward the only remaining sealer. Not much more is known about the sealers other than the fact that they were known also for their healing powers, hence their crimson robes.

StrategyEdit

Can be easily killed before doing any damage as he is quite fragile.

NotesEdit

  • Killing Ingward before accessing the Lordvessel allows players to explore the New Londo Ruins in its entirety before reaching Anor Londo.
  • 4 humanity can be stolen using the Dark Hand.
  • Killing Ingward early on the PC version can sometimes result in a glitch where he will not drop the key to the seal, rendering that save useless because the key can then be obtained no other way.
  • Despite helping to flood New Londo to protect Lordran from the Darkwraiths, Ingward will not become hostile if the player places the Lordvessel for Kaathe. Even if the player joins the Darkwraith covenant, he will still be friendly and provide his services.

WaresEdit

Ingward can also remove curses, at the cost of one Humanity.
