Emerald Herald


This mysterious woman can use souls to level up an undead.

She hands the player an Estus Flask at their first meeting and later on gives the Aged Feather at Dragon Aerie.

Royal Sorcerer Navlaan has a quest concerning her and says a few words about her:


She is near the bonfire.

Drangleic Castle
She stands at the bottom of the stairs that lead to the Castle's entrance.

Undead Crypt
She stands at the top of the stairs leading to Vendrick as soon as the player grabs the King's Ring

Dragon Aerie
She looks at the Aerie, easily noticeable when coming out of the elevator which leads to this area.

Throne of Want
She stands to the left past the Drangleic Castle King's Gate, before the long path leading to the throne.

  • She can be killed, so be careful. If you kill her you will have to pay 2,600 souls at her grave to level up.
  • Her grave spawns near the tree after killing 3-6 bosses.
  • If you strike her enough times she will aggro, but she does not attack or move. You simply cannot speak to her or use the bonfire near her.
  • She changes poses each time you rest at the nearby bonfire or reload the area.
  • She reveals her true name is Shanalotte in her final dialogue.
  • If you look closely under her hair to see her other eye you will notice that it is blue. This means the Emerald Herald is heterochromatic.
  • This NPC has many unused dialogue lines.
