Also known as The White Lady, The Fair Lady, Quelaan by the Dark Souls community, but in the game, her real name is never mentioned.
Drew her crying, to highlight the fact that she's in constant pain and suffering...and also because (SPOILER ALERT!!) you end up killing her sister...you monster...
Also made the tears red, to be a little on the dark side.
Demon's Souls and Dark Souls, apart from being rather on the tricky side, also boasts a surprising cast of memorable NPCs, some of whom will end up emotionally affecting you: In Dark Souls, that NPC would be Quelaan and her plight.
Eingyi, YOU SUCK!
And when you meet Quelaan for the first time and get her backstory from Eingyi, yeah, all dem feelz.
I also wonder if all those monsters in Blighttown, were actually trying to protect her...
Still, its the mark of good writing if it makes a person "feel" for the characters.
Chaos Servant 4 Life, yo'! Have you checked the Servant Roster for the Chaos Covenant? Some people have donated thousands!
I was listening to the Dark Souls lore while I was playing the game, just because I wanted to get a handle on the game's mythology. I had already beaten the game before so this was New Game+ for me. In my previous game, Quelaag had beaten the hell out of me. So on this run through, I decided "it was payback time, Bitch!" Ironically enough, the lore chapter I was listening to was about the Chaos Sisters and the Witch of Izalith. After killing her (which was way easy), I found myself at the fair lady's area, where I just wanted to light the bonfire so I could warp back to it later. I listened to what the lore said about her and all the terrible crap she had to go through. How she was sick and dying and how only humanity could save her.
How Quelaag wasn't her enemy, but the only companion she had left. The only one who was willing to take care of her... That is ... until I came in butchered her like an animal. I'll tell you right now, listening to that lore and being in the same room as her. Broke my heart. From that moment on I swore I would be a Chaos Covenant member for life. That is just too much crap to happen to a person who's only crime is she wanted to help the people of Blighttown.
Whenever I replay Dark Souls, I'll happily take on Smough and Ornstein anytime, but I DREAD going to Quelaags' Domain ><
I know you can tell. It's me. It's not your sister anymore. But I've been working hard. I'm going to try and make you all better. I've worn this Gold Serpent Ring so long that it's practically grafted to these fingers, continuously fighting rats and mutants in the sewers day in and out, gaining the humanity you need. All for you, because I want to see you better again. I want to see you smile.
I'm sorry about Quelaag. I didn't mean to. She wouldn't stop, so I had to act and save myself. I cried with you that night, silently and without tears, as this cursed body doesn't have tear ducts, but I cried with you. And I did what I could. The blade at my side carries part of her, you know. Borrows that chaotic essence you know so well, and uses it against my foes. Perhaps she would be happy knowing that chaos can be used to preserve order?
You're getting healthier. Slowly, but it's there, I can see it. You don't want to admit it, but your pain is going away little by little, your energy is coming back, with every small scrap of humanity I bring home to you. One day you will open your eyes again. You don't have to yet. Just, when you're ready. And then I hope you will smile.
And I think you're beautiful. There is nothing about your cursed body that appalls me, nothing about it I would not tenderly touch or be willing to comfort, at least when you're ready to receive it. I won't rush you. Just think about getting better. Things will get better, fair Quelaan.
Keep being brave. I'm doing what I can. Please hang in there.
Humanitehzz be like Cookie Dough to her~
As for the Soul of Quelaag, I made the Chaos Blade instead of Her Fury Sword, So that Too.
To keep the charade going, I guess I'll hafta wear a dress everytime I chat to Quelaan...
