    Ciaran in the DLC?

    Post by zzombieboy on Wed Jul 18, 2012 11:07 am

    Hey guys,

    Sorry to make another new thread, but does anyone know for sure if Ciaran will be in the DLC? I've been looking through some concept sketches for the DLC, and there are a couple of 'knight looking' characters which increased my excitement.

    Ciaran always seemed like the coolest of the remaining three knights (after Artorias, apart from him introducing Hornets ring into the game silly ), so would be awesome if you could fight him and get his armour or maybe even his elusive weapon happy

    Apart from the ring there's nothing but a name. Check Emergence's Linking Lore thread in the archives, we did some theorizing. Going on name etymology, Emergence I believe pointed out it's typically a female name (which led to more specualation). So far there's no word on Ciaran's appearance or not in the DLC as far as I know. It would be cool though.

    Also the fact that the body you pillage is female as well!

    I would love to see this knight, I always imagined a crucial looking assassin, maybe the love of artorias which is why the corpse was laying at artorias's tomb! =D

    Ciaran is a woman and Artorias' lover.

    Yeah, I'd read some of the lore stuff about Ciaran being female. My default mode is to write 'his' as being Scottish I know many male Ciarans!

    As an American I will bow to your knowledge of the name as it's used. I saw it was used for both genders but have no idea of how often for each and whatnot.

    Regarding the body at the grave I wonder if that's Ciaran or a messenger or soemthing similar. I'd actually be somewhat disappointed if any of the knights were human sized. Not that it's not possible, I just think it removes some of the grandeur.

    Well, Ciaran's a rogue, so stealth would play a big part of her/his attack patterns.

    Wouldn't surprise me if he/she were the tiniest knight.

    Yeah but imagine the lineup near Gwyn. Ornstein's size we know. Artorias I hope matches his sword/grave, Gough is up in the air so who knows but imagine a pipsqueak next to THE DRAGONSLAYER with all his majesty and nobly holding his spear while Gwyn gives a grand speech. I suppose I would be less disappointed if Gough were small too, kinda like, Gwyn recruited knights based on skill rather than heritage, size etc. But that would a touch sad too as the Pharis stuff paints Gough in a good light. Makes me think he should be legendary as well.

    'Tiniest Knight' - haha! You almost make the backstab fisher sound cute silly

    Skarecrow - didn't mean to disregard your etymology point, just that my stupid brain assumes the male gender when I write about Ciaran, though you are perfectly correct about it being unisex.

    No worries. You didn't come across as disregarding it at all. Plus, any dedicated lore hunter should be open to whatever evidence there is and you're absolutely in a better position than I am on this one. Frankly that's one of the best pieces of evidence for a female knight but like we both said, it's not conclusive by any means.

    Now that I've heard the phrase a couple times "tiniest knight" makes me picture the Little Engine That Could.

    In the heat of battle we here the chant begin: "I think I stab, I think I stab, I think I stab"

    Meanwhile, Ornstein is talking smack across the battlefield saying something like "I don't even know why you're on this team, you can't even kill a dragon" (or drink a beer maybe?)

    While Artorias gives her a gentle pat on the head, telling her, "That'll do knight. That'll do."

    You guys might have already theorised who this might be, but could this be a concept sketch of Ciaran?

    http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

    He/she is wearing a chain that at least suggests they are meant to be a knight, and it looks to be a high crit-type weapon
