  • "Small shield used by Volgen Falconers. Appears like a glistening gold falcon from afar."

  • "Domestic Volgen soldiers are infamously timid, so it is no wonder that this fierce band of mercenary falconers was hired to compensate."

  • "The falconers are rumored to be untrusting of others, and demanding of prompt, full payment. But no wonder; they deliver much more than they are paid, and are well aware of it."

Acquired From



Hints and Tips:

  • May be a reference to the character Zarine from a fantasy book series called "the wheel of time", who also goes by the name Faile, which means 'falcon' in one of the languages of that series. Furthermore, the shield is found on a hollow togeather with the dragonslayer's crescent axe, which closely resembles the description of the axe owned by her huband, Perrin Aybara.
  • Given the influence of Berserk on Dark souls series, it's a possible reference to Griffith, the leader of " Band of the Hawk " otherwise known as " Lord Falcon, The Hawk, etc.
