Vinheim

With how much time has passed since the events of the original Dark Souls, (DS1) it comes as no surprise to see Vinheim’s Dragon School change uniforms once again. Currently, the dress code features a deep blue coat, a far cry from the green coat design in the original, though the academy’s spies continue to […]

Kamui

With a name related to the Japanese kami and use of katana, Kamui is quite obviously an Easterner. This might not seem as obvious looking at his facial features, lacking the long-slit eyes and small lips characteristic of the “snake foreigner face” (蛇の異人顔) by western detractors or “dragon foreigner face” (竜の異人顔) by the occasional endorser.

Gwynevere

Despite her rather prominent presence in the Boreal Valley, Gwynevere is noticeably absent from the record during the rise and subsequent tyranny of Pontiff Sulyvahn. There is no mention of the goddess being confined to the Anor Londo cathedral like Gwyndolin, and her old seat there remains empty. Neither is there reference to her being […]
