Sweet Shalquoir is a sapient cat that is able to speak the human tongue, similar to Alvina from Dark Souls. However, while Alvina's appearance was based on that of the Cheshire Cat, Shalquoir is based on a common domestic cat, specifically a British Longhair.
Shalquoir also seems to be fond of the player's scent, and she will comment on it every time she is visited. At a certain point in the story, when the player has accumulated a high number of souls, Shalquoir will claim that the player has a scent similar to Vendrick.
Found in a house in Majula, Sweet Shalquoir is a talking cat who acts similar to Oswald of Carim of Dark Souls in the way that she manages the player's covenants. Whilst talking to her, the player can view their current covenant rank and other covenant managing options.
After opening the Shrine of Winter, she will offer an unlimited stock of items instead of the initial ten of each.
Shalquoir is ancient, possibly predating the Age of Fire as she cites the activities of Gwyn, Solaire of Astora and/or the Chosen Undead, with a great deal of familiarity. Though most of the allusions made are vague, she has several insights into the role of fate and mankind, and even the Lost Sinner who tried to rekindle the first flame. Further, she seems to view it as folly to light it again and decides to leave Majula after the player character succeeds the throne.

- Sweet Shalquoir is similar to the Monumental from Demon's Souls, they both are immortal beings with immense knowledge, they cannot be killed and they mock the players for trying to do so.
- Sweet Shalquoir is surprisingly the only NPC in Majula that cannot be killed. Attempts to kill her will only get a sarcastic reply from the cat. No negative effects come from attempting to kill her, she will still talk to you and sell you things. An unused dialogue quote found in the game's files, states it was possible to kill Shalquoir.
- If she is scratching the wall, it is possible to speak to her through it on the other side, inside of the tent.
- She is the only NPC who comments on the Wretch status of the Bearer of the Curse.
