Dialogue Edit

Introduction "A pleasure to make your acquaintance, Ashen One. I am but a humble handmaiden of the shrine. Weapons, armor, trinkets, and spells... I've lots of little things to ease the burden of a weary traveller. ...And yes, I'm Undead, too, but not so charitable as to give my goods away. Ashen One, fetch souls, and bring them to me. As is thy wont, no?"
Introduction if you have spoken with her at Untended Graves beforehand "Oh thou'rt... Oh, no, 'tisn't anything Ashen One. I am but a humble handmaiden of the shrine. Weapons, armor, trinkets, and spells... I've lots of little things to ease the burden of a weary traveller. ...And yes, I'm Undead, too, but not so charitable as to give my goods away. Ashen One, fetch souls, and bring them to me. As is thy wont, no?"
Talk "Ashen One, if my wares are not to thy satisfaction, bring me umbral ash. With ash, I'll fashion new wares. Is it not our sorry fate, to sup on death?"
Talk, without having a White Sign Soapstone "Knowest thou of that soppy gossip? That cordial intrusion layeth the path to embers. And so thou art in need of a soapstone, ashen one. Then thy pockets will o'erflow with souls and trade to me." 
Giving her Umbral Ash "Gracious. Passing fine ash thou'st given. Let this ash bestow nourishment. I only hope these new wares content thee..."
Giving her Ash from an NPC "Gracious. Passing fine ash thou'st given. And awfully warm, at that. Almost as if it had lived, mere moments ago... Oh, forgive an old woman's idle prate. I'm sure an ashen one such as thee would never indulge such base contrivances..."
Giving her Dreamchaser's Ashes "Ashen One, what woeful umbral ash is this. This barren dust, stuff of a fool, on't yield aught. Where did thou happen upon the stuff? Tell me, for the sport. "
Telling her where the Ash was found "Oh, yes, I see... Clinging to lofty dreams in this dying world...more's the pity. It must come from one most foolish indeed. Woulds't thou not agree? "
Say nothing "As the Ashen One ought to be. Little time for japery, hm?"
Greeting "Ah well met, ashen one. How may I be of service?"
Farewell "Ashen one, be sure to bring more souls."
Killing her "Vile brute. I'm but a poor old woman..."
Speaking to her, after she has been killed "A malicious sort, thou art. But, marvel on. Remember well, I am Undead. Bound forever by the shrine's curse... Well, little sense in timidity now. I'll have thee for all thou'rt worth..."
Introduction in Flameless Shrine "Well, fancy that. A lost lamb wandereth in, with nary a peep from the bell. Well, thou shouldst my purpose know. What can this old handmaid provide thee?"
Talk in Flameless Shrine "To skirt the curse's grasp... ...tarry not for long. Tis dark for now, and not a soul stirs. But remember, fires are known to fade in quiet. Or perhaps thou'rt captive already. Like the poor girl." (laughs)
Greeting in Flameless Shrine "Well, thou'rt exceeding lost indeed. What can this old handmaid provide thee?"
Farewell in Flameless Shrine "Best not tarry long." (laughs)
