- When first met, with INT and FTH under 8
I don't know who you are…But leave me be.
The frailty…of the weak… Disrupts the Dark…

- When talking again, with INT and FTH under 8
Leave me alone.
I am interested in one thing. Dark. You haven't the gift.

- When first met, with INT and FTH above 8
The Dark stirs…
I see…The Dark has sparked within you…
My name is Felkin.
I will trade with you. What do you need?

- When talking to open interaction menu
You are…always welcome…yes…?
The Dark…watches over you…

- When leaving, having used his services
Come again…as you like…
The Dark…Is always within you…

- When leaving, without having used his services
No matter…the time will come…

- When walking off without closing the menu
Till we meet again.

- Use 'Talk' options
This land…lies closest to the Dark… Th-that is…that is why I came here.
This kingdom…collapsed long ago.
All that are left… Are either Undead or Hollow…
Save a few misfits like myself…hah hah.

- Use 'Talk' options
I w-went…I went…I went to a great school…in the south… But neither sorcery nor pyromancy appealed…I…
I-I learned nothing…nothing at all… I-it was there that I happened upon the Dark.
It drew me in… The nebulous Dark…
Soon, I was drawn to this land, where Dark runs deeper than anywhere else.

- Use 'Talk' options
Hexes originated in…ancient times.
They were once…a form of sorcery. But the practice was lost…then later rediscovered.
Those devoted to hexes are a lonely lot… But nevertheless…they give their lives to their art.
Such is the fate…of we practitioners of Dark…

- Use 'Talk' options
What drew me to the Dark…I…I…I do not know.
Hexes are…are more than mere tools to me…
I feel affinity…and warmth… Something universal, nostalgia…even…
Those who discover Dark…realize this… And…they never come back.

- When giving equipment to the player
These…are for you…
Together, into the Dark…

- When attacked but not aggroed
What are you doing?
Stop this.

- When attacked and aggroed
You've let Dark…take control…

- When killing the player
One day…I will share your fate.

- When re-encountered after aggroing
I cannot…let you have this.

- When attacked and health is under 50%

- When killed
Look…the Dark…I see it…I see it…

- Unknown
Dark…Deliver me…




  • You can actually get two Sunset Staffs from him, first one by meeting the int and fth requirements (BEFORE killing him) and a second one upon killing him

      Dark is cool but it too edgy/ skyrim vibe sadly. It could be very ordinary and yet interesting. Without all that hoodie/ robe ****

        He is so warm and gentle, even when you are a stranger to him.. Together..into the dark... No homo though

        • I was viewing each and every NPC in here and I see each one of them has a different and separate style of weapon!
          Can it not be all the same?
          Thats what I'm Going to try to do!

            It should probably be added that using Blackweed balm for +5 int does not count towards the 20 int requirement for his gear. I just tried it out in order to get the staff for Navlan, but alas no dice. I'd edit the page myself, but I don't see the button...

            • Is anyone interested do some Sunbro Co-op? I play on both PC (SOTFS) and on PS3 (Vanilla). I have several characters in different levels, from low ones till 17 million soul memory. My nick on PC is: King_Havel And on PS3 is: Dastiefeleid666 Praise the Sun! \o/

                Wow, I just love how they tied Dark with Chaos, jesus. <3 And the way he started sorceries and miracles, but didn't like them, and because Chaos mage, it's just, wow. I guess someone dived into the darkness in Fromsoft, congrats. :3

                  I suspect he worked with Aldia, because he was clearly at the keep as stated by the locked up sorcerer who wants him dead and also he has the Sunset Staff. My guess is he got in touch with his dark working for Aldia and went AWOL when Aldia went messing with the chaos flame. That last part is speculation but it would make sense being he looks like the bed of chaos.

                    Lore theory on his use of staff Pyromancy: Perhaps Felkin was okay at Pyromancy and Sorcery, but suddenly found the dark one day. perhaps after discovering "the Dark" he found himself learning Hexes at a faster rate then he ever could of achieved with Pyromancy or Sorcery, and he felt like he learned nothing... but that is false since he has proven to be good at Pyromancy, and almost seems to have recreated flame sorcery, or at least found someone else who recreated it and learned the secret himself at some point. I reckon he only uses flame sorcery when fighting you since he views it as a ritualistic way to banish the dark that he thinks is controlling you when you attack him(depending on how you take what he says in his aggro dialogue "You've let Dark…take control…").

                    Before you call bull to this and state the staff cannot cast a mimic of Flame Sorcery, then let me tell you that you can use a Pyromancy flame to cast dark Pyromancy, and the Chaos Flame magic(and upgrade path) in Dark Souls 1 was created by the Witch of Izalith... which runs on humanity(a form of dark). So basically his magic isn't the pure Flame Sorcery, but as I said a recreation... an imperfect recreation to be sure. Tho I have no idea if Felkin realizes that his Fake Staff Pyromancy shares the basic framework as Dark, but chances are he might if he feels closer to the Dark then he does regular Pyromancy.

                    How does that theory sound?

                    • What I don't get is why he uses only pyromancy when you aggro him. Makes no sense because he'll tell you that sorcery or pyromancy never appealed to him, and yet there he is casting pyromancy at you...with a staff...wtf from software b-team?

                        All you really have to do is hit him until he stands up, then keep doing criticals behind him. I literally killed him with my fists only and he didnt land a single hit on me because he takes knockback with your bare fists only with around 9 strength I believe.
