When the Ashen One encountered the consumed king secluded in a chamber within his gardens, he was seen holding thin air, in a manner similar as if he was holding a baby, and murmuring to himself of the great power his son "Ocelotte" had, embracing the imaginary child and preparing for battle, never to let any harm fall upon him.
During the battle a baby's cries were heard, implying Ocelotte could be present and hiding, as Oceiros accused him of. Afterward, the king was shown murdering the invisible infant before charging with full rage against the Ashen One.
- Cut content from Dark Souls III includes an unused audio file with what appears to be the sound of a crying baby being murdered. This file was probably intended to be used in Oceiros's boss fight during the transition between the first and the second phase, and it would most likely represent Ocelotte when Oceiros is disposing of his son.
- Interestingly, once the second stage of the battle begins and Oceiros supposedly murders his son, the baby's cries can still be heard. This could mean that the crying is merely a manifestation of the King's madness or that he himself could be making the noises.
