Undead Prince Ricard

Undead Prince Ricard is a minor character in Dark Souls.


Prince Ricard is a hollowed enemy found towards the top of a tower in the latter half of Sen's Fortress, beyond the Berenike Knight.


Even though his armor implies that Ricard was probably from Astora.[1], he is likely from Balder, and a member of the royal family. Ricard had been journeying through different lands for a long time until he eventually ended up Hollowing in Lordran.[2]


Ricard wields his Rapier and Buckler for close-range combat and a Longbow for more distant targets. He can parry and riposte attacks. His attacks deal fairly low damage, giving a lot of room for error.

Trivia Edit

- Since Ricard's Rapier says that he has "wandered the lands in a fateful ill-conceived journey ", and is praised for (unknown) exploits that are singed in monomyth, it is possible that Ricard left his kingdom to become an adventurer.

- Ricard could have been supposed to be the son of Undead King Jar-Eel, due to the very similarity between their titles, which would probably track Ricard's origins back to the four kingdoms. However, that wouldn't make any sense in the actual game.

- Ricard is considerably implied to be the son of Knight King Rendal.
