    NPC Invader Lore?

    Post by Revoltage on Mon May 14, 2012 10:01 pm

    So I was looking around for some info on Knight Kirk and Paladin Leeroy, hoping to learn a bit more about them for a project I plan on working on. I was disappointed to find very little info apart from the item descriptions, and even those are unclear to me.

    Anyways, I was hoping for someone to enlighten me on the backstories of all the NPC invaders you meet in the game - basically Kirk, Leeroy, and Jeremiah. I took a look into Doughguy's topic about NPCs but Kirk and Leeroy were not included.

    I'm interested in hearing what everyone might know, or some theories behind the motivations of these invaders.

    Just about to jump in and say LOOK! Kirk is a Chaos servant who used to be a DW. He uses his DW powers to steal humanity so he can give it to the white lady to ease her suffering. Leeroy is the first undead produced by the WoW and was sent on a mission to the catacombs and ToG so his undead life wouldnt be a waste.

    KIRK BACKSTORY:

    Spoiler:
    Kirk is unique for being one of the characters that does not have their origin named. All that can be gathered of him is that he is a part of the darkwraith covenant and is known for his murderous tendencies. Kirk is assumed to have met his end at the hands of Quelaag or one of her servants as a corpse with his suit of armor is found in her domain.

    PALADIN LEEROY BACKSTORY:

    Spoiler:
    Paladin Leeroy is mentioned in item descriptions to be the first undead hailing from the Way of the White. Wielding the treasures Grant and Sanctus, he ventured into Lordran on an unspecified mission: perhaps to obtain the Rite of Kindling, or to vanquish Nito. As Grant and Sanctus are both mentioned to have been granted to Leeroy long ago, and that Leeroy is named as the first undead from the Way of White, it can be inferred that he is from a distant era that is able to interact with Lordran's present time thanks to Lordran's disrupted time flow. Leeroy is assumed to have met his fate at the hands of Gravelord Nito, as a corpse with his armor is found there. Little else is known about him, as he has no dialogue whatsoever.

    Hope this is enough information for you.

    Thanks for the quick responses! I think I know all I need. I just have one question: Why would the white lady kill Kirk if he was helping her by bringing humanity? Errr......I'm still unclear about why his corpse is found in that place :/

    It's quite vague indeed, I can't tell. Maybe he was killed by mistake ?

    By the way, the white lady is the Chaos Covenant. Darkwraiths is Kaathe's.

    His corpse is there because when he died he wanted to be near her. Either you wound him so badly as a phantom that he has to crawl back to her and dies nearby or he knows he is dying (disease, injury, age) and spends his lat minutes with her.
    @Lau Kirk is a chaos servant. It was confirmed by the director. You also bring the white lady humanity to rank up.

    Yeah he used to be, and he is well known for being a DW. But then (IMO) he fell in love.
