Bashful Ray is an NPC summon available for a number of boss fights in Scholar of the First Sin.
He wears the Prisoner's Hood (without the top part) and the rest of the shadow set (ninja outfit), the Simpleton's Ring and the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring.
He wields dual Umbral Daggers (that hit hard against invading players), dual claws, binoculars, and powerful pyromancy



  • When summoned, he performs the "Bow" gesture and after successfully assisting you in a boss fight he performs the "Bow" gesture before leaving
  • He is only summoned as a shade (except in Bightstone Cove Tseldora) but you can bring him to boss fights if you clear enough enemies just so his summon timer does not run out before you enter a boss fight
  • He deals very high damage and very good poise and can tank multiple enemies at once without dying, which means that this summon in particular can be a player invader's biggest challenge when present
  • He uses the following pyromancies: Fireball, Great Fireball, Firestorm and Flame Swathe.
  • His binoculars help by pointing at the nearest hidden enemy or invader

      And people says that ds2 hasn't any good character... We got bashful destroyer of worlds ray, lone hunter auto turret Schmidt, Felicia the bull brave, Bradley, mauldron, holy knight Aurelios or whatever his name is... And these are just the summons/phantoms. We also have pate and Creighton, benhart, lucatiel, Wich is one of the most human characters I've ever seen, in terms of NPCs ds2's nailed it

          I summoned him before The Rotten boss fight, then I progressed after that and killed more bosses then went back to black gulch and found his summon sign what does that mean?

            He even has a summon sign at Dragon Shrine. Its located below the bridge guarded by the Dragon Knight before the 3rd Drakekeeper (kill him first so the Dragon Knights don't get aggroed)
