Tseldora Settler is an enemy in Dark Souls 2.


Propertier of Brightstone Cove and founder of the mining town which once flourished there. Duke Tseldora disappeared after the town was suddenly and mysteriously overrun by spiders and was never heard from again. Though the circumstances surrounding Brighstone Cove's desctruction remain unclear, the murky truth behind Duke Tseldora's disappearance seems somehow related to his unnatural obsession with spiders...


  • It seems that the Duke has raised Freja from when she was small, as the broken cage around his study cage suggests. This could also mean that he had no intentions of releasing the spiders upon his dukedom, as it seems the release was accidental.
  • It is suggested that the Duke at some point came in contact with the remains of Seath the Scaleless' and possibly his study. The Duke used the Old Paledrake Soul and arcane research that might have been from the time of Seath to create Freja and her spider broods. This is also supported by the dead petrified Dragon hanging over the boss arena and the fact that Tseldora was famous for it's Crystals, also connecting him to the mad Seath. In the end both were driven insane by the work they did, as Duke Tseldora was hollowed by the time you got there.

      I found him in NG, attacked him while his back was turned, killed him, then noticed that he was human. Could I have talked to him like as if he was an NPC because he was human? I googled this a bit and didn't find the Duke in human form anywhere on the internet. wat. is. it. i. saw.?

      • Seems like if you die after killing Tseldora, say by a horde of spiders you didn't expect to follow you since you only put your torch down inside the room, and you failed to pick up the items, they are lost forever until NG+ or by using an Ascetic
