Saulden, the Crestfallen Warrior is a character in Dark Souls II and in the graphic novel Dark Souls II: Into the Light. He's voiced by Matt Morgan, who also voiced the Crestfallen Warrior and Domhnall of Zena in Dark Souls.
Saulden wears the Knight Armor and Gauntlets, the Wanderer Boots and no helm. In the comic and in early screenshots, he wears the Warrior Set. He's the spiritual successor of the Crestfallen Warrior from the previous game. While he is still as depressed and hopeless as his predecessor, Saulden seems to have a slightly friendlier personality, offering helpful advice to those in need.
Saulden will give you certain gifts after meeting some criteria:
- Soul Vessel (after bringing at least four characters to Majula)
- Ring of Steel Protection (after dying one hundred times)
Saulden also drops a Ring of Steel Protection upon death.
Dark Souls II: Into the LightEdit
The undead warrior meets Saulden when the latter is resting at a bonfire. The warrior advises Saulden to put out the fire as soon as possible, as it could lure other people with murderous intentions. Saulden decides to invite the warrior to sit around the fire for a while, as a way of showing his gratitude for the advice. After a brief conversation, the undead warrior decides to continue his quest, although Saulden tries to convince him to stay for a little longer in order to share some of his knowledge with him. The warrior, however, refuses his offer and Saulden decides to let him go.
Dark Souls IIEdit
Saulden is met for the first time in Majula, sitting next to an obelisk-like structure near the coast. Upon talking to him, he reveals some information about Drangleic and he gives the player some directions and hints about where to go next. Saulden also invites the player to join the Way of Blue covenant, so that the Blue Sentinels can come to the player's aid whenever they are in trouble.
Health and SoulsEdit
Ring of Steel Protection
- In early screenshots and in the graphic novel, Saulden is seen wearing the Hard Leather Set from the first game, instead of the armor set that he wears in the final version of the game. This change of armor is probably due to the developers deciding to give the Hard Leather Set to Mild-Mannered Pate instead.
- He is the only "Crestfallen Warrior" in the Souls series who doesn't die during his storyline.
