Well, guessing the author of the nonsensical last third of this page deleted my comment, but I'd rather not let it go because this is some of the worst conjecture related to soulsborne lore I've seen this side of DS2. Can't it just be deleted or filed under Theories?

Thank you, the text has been updated accordingly.

The 30 dregs thing was proven to be false.

This is just speculation, but maybe the stray demon was locked up in there. I mean obviously he cannot get out. Him being “stray” probably means he defected from the demons, and was locked up for it. I also noted that his weapon is similar to the firesage, who was deduced to be a higher ranking demon. A priest of some sort maybe. I think this shows that the stray demon was once a similar ranking firesage, defected, and was locked up. He still can use the chaos flame to an extant with his area effects, but as he is not close to the chaos flame, the flame has clearly died down in him.

Theory? by BlarsnirBlarsnir, 19 Dec 2017 01:50

Unlikely. The sludge starts from where the corpse of the giant blacksmith is.

Another interesting note from the interview was "Time is one of the central keywords we're keeping in mind as we create this."
So, even though the two places may not be the same geographically, there could certainly be ties culturally or otherwise that influenced them in similar ways.

I wouldn't suppose any conjunction between the Grave of Saints and the Tomb of Giants. From Software stated back before the release of Dark Souls 2, that the game takes place in a very different place than its predecessor. The developers stated, that

If Dark Souls was set in the North Pole, this one would be in the South Pole

and

The game is set in a different part of the same planet

See Polygon.com blog "Dark Souls 2 developer: If Dark Souls was set in the North Pole, this one would be in the South Pole" (Can't add link because of low Karma).

Additionally I wouldn't see any relation between both places only because a level designer resicles objects from Dark Souls in Dark Souls 2.

I think the story goes a bit like this: "A Kos Parasite is said to stimulate phantasms inhabiting a lumenwood."

When you look at the icon of the Kos Parasite, you may distinguish two entities.

There's a slug that's being stabbed with tentacles, and a flowery looking thing on top of it.

So I think the flowery thing is the Kos Parasite, and the slug is a phantasm "being stimulated".

So with the Milkweed Lumenwood you get three things, the lumenwood (plant), the phantasm (herbivore) and the Kos parasite (parasite)

That still leaves a lot of questions like: Why does Fishing Hamlet contain swarms of Phantasms, but no visible Kos Parasites?

Are the bulges on the Snail Women some kind of snail organs, or a Kos Parasite? And if it's the parasite, then are the Snail Women Phantasms?

As for the editing, I just can't go around correcting lore texts on every wiki, and I'm already very busy on Fextralife.

I'd rather have these kinds of discussions and let authors edit their own texts, rather than changing stuff behind their backs.

Definitely! Not sure how this page got overlooked. Thanks for calling it out.

Here are some facts, though it may not exactly answer the question.

"A Kos Parasite is said to stimulate phantasms inhabiting a lumenwood."
Using the Milkweed rune, one can transform into a Lumenwood, which activates with Kos Parasite to unleash a devastating set of attacks.
Phantasms are also known as invertebrates, and are said to be "augurs of the Great Ones".
The Orphan of Kos, from which the parasite is obtained, is the offpsring of a Great One.

Yeah really good point. The invertebrates all around the village and the Kos Parasite item not looking the same is a confusing thing for me, haven't figured it out.

I think the invertebrates came from Kos, and the parasite description says Kos' insides were teeming with parasites so I just assumed they were one and the same. Also I think I remember some lore around invertebrates/phantasms being augurs of Great Ones and seemingly living on them like parasites, but am definitely skeptical of my conclusion. Happy for you to edit the text to remove that assumption :). Thanks for asking! What do you reckon is going on?

How do you figure those invertebrates are Kos Parasites?

It seems to me they look completely different.

Possible relative or reincarnation of the Great Wolf Sif?

I think that if the familial terms are in reference to blood relations, that the grandson could be the hollowed man that carries the cage. I'm not entirely sure that the Untended Graves is in the same timeline though.

In DaS3 they appear in the Spears of the Church fight. Other parts of the game suggest that the Church mentioned there is not even for any of the original Four Lords, but an older power - possibly a reference back to Demon's Souls.

Very interesting character to be this strong and easily kill. Confuse ? Well if any of you travel entirely blightown you will find many PC death in there. But right is about shiva bodyguard… He is found death at the highest plataform at the edge of a staircase, I take four ways he end up there. One, he was kill by the flesh eating monster that got the staff , two he was poison by the dart midgets there , three smash by the big guys that hold club the one found at the entry of blightown before going down the stairs. And last and for me the most sense making, kill by shiva. Ok for a body guard he would have been impossible to get ambush by e flesh eating monsters, they are to loud and scream soon as they see you, two toxic dart would not do anything he is a assassin ninja meaning he got antidote for all that and would have cure himself fast along by killing the little people. Three could not be killed by the fatso due to they are heavy and would have been easy for the ninja to take them on easy. Plus he was invisible only one that can see him would have been the flesh eating monsters due to they would know by scent, the insect of course . And by shiva in which by turning his back to the person he was protcting would have made him easy target. Why blightown ? Well after the event where the player meet shiva for the second time the player possesses the chaos blade and shiva want it just like the blacksmith ask you to have the Amber you found. You say know and he take it. So feeling the ninja saw that as wrong he confronted shiva about this action which have him kill also could have been he desiable him to where the blight town monsters got the drop on him . Got hit by a dart, he try cure himself and shiva took the antidote , then the fatso came up and smash him dropping down the floor trying to get away only to find the eating flesh monsters and die there while shiva escape to the top floor through the depth into dark roots down to sen fortress , since the iron golem been kill previously to the players visit he made it there and into the world of ariamis.
