Weaponsmith Ornifex is a merchant found in Dark Souls II. She appears to be a Crow Demon from Dark Souls, but is not hostile to the player. She will sell the player boss soul weapons in turn for the corresponding boss soul and a certain amount of souls, similar to the Giant Blacksmith from Dark Souls. She is voiced by Anna Koval .
Found in a locked room under the false floor just past the large Basilisk in the Shaded Ruins. She is freed using the Fang Key. Once her dialogue is exhausted, she will move to her home next to the Lower Brightstone Cove bonfire in Brightstone Cove Tseldora.
- Upon speaking to her in her workshop for the first time, she will let the player buy one boss weapon for free (the player still needs to give her the required boss soul). All boss weapons after that will be at regular price.
- Ornifex means "Birdmaker" in Latin, which fits in the sense that she's a bird-like creature that creates weapons and statues, although the word would actually mean "one who makes birds".
- There are dozens of small statues inside her workshop, hinting the fact she creates more than weapons.
