I am Solaire of Astora, an adherent to the Lord of Sunlight. Now that I am Undead, I have come to this great land, the birthplace of Lord Gwyn, to seek my very own sun!

– Solaire of Astora, upon first meeting the chosen Undead. –

This is the fourth piece of my Dark Souls™️ Collection. I hope you enjoy! 

Why Dark Souls Players „praise the sun“:
„In a series that routinely builds players up just for the sadism of knocking them back down again, every little ray of sunshine is a victory worthy of praise. Solaire…is arguably the first such ray of sunshine that players of the original Dark Souls ever experienced. It’s a memorable moment that fiercely endears players to Solaire.“

Who is „Solaire“?:
Solaire of Astora is a character who appears in Dark Souls. He is an exceptionally skilled warrior who purposefully became Undead so he could visit Lordran in his quest to find a sun of his own.
