"Oh, forgive me.
I am Irina of Carim.
I came to this land so that I might be a Fire Keeper."
— Irina of Carim

Irina of Carim is a character and merchant in Dark Souls III.


Found in the Undead Settlement, imprisoned in a cell guarded by Eygon of Carim. The door cannot be opened from that side, however, and an alternate route must be found throughout the sewage system. The other entrance is locked too, though, and the Grave Key is required in order to open it. This key can be bought from the Shrine Handmaid after she has upgraded her stock once the player has given her the Mortician's Ashes.

If the player accepts Irina's offer to enter their services, she will relocate to Firelink Shrine and settle at the end of the basement's corridor on the east wing, where she will become a miracles merchant.


Irina was a nun in her homeland, Carim. She came to Lothric with the aim of becoming a fire keeper. However, at the poor state the Champion of Ash encountered her when freeing her from her prison, she had no other option than to accept that she was unfit to tend the flames. Instead, she offered to aid her savior by teaching miracles in Firelink Shrine.

Since she is blind, she perceives the world only with her tact. The player can bring her miracle tomes written in braille for her to learn new miracles, which she may then teach the player in return.

Dialogue Edit

Introduction "Ahh, who's there? Is someone there, anyone? The dark surrounds me, nibbles at my flesh. Little creatures, they never stop biting. So please, hold out your hand, and touch me..."
Choosing "Touch" "Ahh, yes, there you are, so close indeed. Then I am not entirely alone, just yet. Praise the merciful gods above... Oh, forgive me. I am Irina of Carim. I came to this land so that I might be a Fire Keeper. Your touch has freed me from the darkness.  You are a Champion, then? I am weak, and unfit to tend the flames. But if it would not trouble you, might I enter into your service, instead?"
Decline "Ahh, yes, of course, I understand. Even so, I thank you deeply.  For your touch. I will never forget it, not ever."
Talking after declining her service "Oh, sweet Champion. You still wish to converse? Don't worry about me. I've long dealt in dark. It is my calling."
Accept "Oh, thank you, sweet Champion. I shall take my vows. I, Irina of Carim, solemnly swear to serve you."
Speaking to her at Firelink Shrine "Oh, Champion of Ash.  Welcome back. I was not meant to be a Fire Keeper, but I am honoured to serve you beside the Bonfire. The gods are ever-merciful.  My gratitude lies with them, and with you. I am yours now.  Your wish is my command."
Talk "You know, in my home of Carim, I was a nun. I would be pleased to share the tales of miracles with you. Although to be honest, I only know a few. But if I had a divine tome, I could tell you many tales and more. Ahh, only I cannot see… Terribly sorry, but you'll have to find me a Divine Tome in braille."
Giving her Divine Tome of Carim or Divine Tome of Lothric "Ahh, you've brought me a braille Divine Tome. Now I can tell tales of new miracles. Tales of the greater miracles can be quite the epics... What fun we will have."
Giving her Deep Divine Tome or Londor Divine Tome "Oh, what's this... Champion of Ash, this Divine Tome is forbidden... These are dark tales that lurk deep within men... These stories would not please you... Of course, if you insist, I will read them for you. Only, ahh, ahh, they frighten me so. The little creatures that nibble at me in the darkness..."
Greeting "Ahh, Champion of Ash, welcome back. Do you wish to hear a tale? You only have to ask."
Greeting if a Dark Miracle has been purchased from her "Ahh, ahh, sweet Champion.  Where have you been? Please, your touch… The little creatures, how they nip and bite…"
Player leaves "Have a pleasant journey, Champion of Ash. I pray for your safety."
Player leaves and has purchased a Dark Miracle from her "Ahh, sweet Champion.  Leaving so soon? Please, come back in good time. I am frightened.  Of the dark that gnaws away at me."
Player leaves after purchasing all non-dark miracles from her "Thank you ever so much, sweet Champion. May your solemn duty conclude in triumph."
Once she moves to the tower "Oh, sweet Champion of Ash. Let souls be your strength..."
Talk, after saving her from Eygon "Ahh, ahh, please, someone, touch me. The dark, surrounds me, nibbles at my flesh.

Little creatures, they never stop biting. So please, hold out your hand, and touch me..."

Selecting "Touch" "Ohh, is there no one near to touch me? Keep these things from eating away at me."
Selecting "Touch" while wearing Morne's Gauntlets "Oh, you again, touch me, one last time. And kill me, as you promised you would."
When killed "What have you done, sweet champion of ash. I only wanted to..."
When killed while wearing Morne's Gauntlets, after touching her with them "Ohh...A Knight of Carim... is always true to his word..."


  • Agreeing to touch Irina when she pleads the player to do so, grants the "Prayer" gesture.
  • If the player kills Irina in Firelink Shrine, rests at a bonfire and then comes back, the Tower Key will appear in her usual residing spot for the player to pick up.
  • Eygon's disposition changes toward the player when Irina is freed and offers to become an ally in the future as long as Irina remains safe.
  • If the player purchases at least one dark miracle from Irina, Eygon will escort her from Firelink Shrine to the Iudex Gundyr bonfire, where he will become hostile to the player.
  • If the player purchases all of the dark miracles, Irina will no longer act as a merchant.
    • Interact with her to reveal dialogue.
    • Interact with her wearing the Morne's Set to reveal more dialogue.
  • If the player purchases all non-dark miracles, Irina will move to the tower just outside of Firelink Shrine and will act as a fire keeper.
