Quotebg.pngQuotebg2.png
"Thou who art Undead, art chosen... In thine exodus from the Undead Asylum, maketh pilgrimage to the land of Ancient Lords... When thou ringeth the Bell of Awakening, the fate of the Undead thou shalt know..."
Tu que és Undead, és escolhido... Em teu êxodo do Undead Asylum, peregrina à terra dos Lordes Antigos... Quanto tu tocar o Sino do Despertar, o destino do Undead tu saberás...
— Oscar, Cavaleiro de Astora

The Chosen Undead é o título dado ao jogador em Dark Souls

Aparência

Nos trailer, artwork e arte promocional para Dark Souls o Chosen Undead é mostrado vestindo o Set Elite Knight além da espada Broadsword ou Astora's Straight Sword junto com o Crest Shield como suas armas principais.

Porém, no jogo, a aparência e atributos do Chosen Undead são determinados peo jogador, incluindo sua face; sexo; origem; classe e equipamento inicial.

Em termos de personalidade, o Chosen Undead é retratado como o arquetípico "personagem silencioso" que não tem nenhuma forma de diálogo dito durante o jogo (com exceção de alguns grunhidos e choros quando é ferido ou morto).  Esse traço foi feito pelos desenvolvedores de maneira proposital para que o jogador pudesse se identificar melhor com o personagem.

Lore

O título de "Chosen Undead" é uma referência a profecia no que diz respeito ao fim da Era do Fogo (Age of Fire). Esta que no final da Era do Fogo, um campeão Undead aparecerá e irá sair em peregrinação à "terra dos Antigos Lordes", Lordran[1][2][3], para tocar os Sinos do Despertar (Bell of Awakening).

O Chosen Undead é presumidamente o descendente do Furtive Pygmy, uns dos Lordes originais que reivindicou a Alma Negra(Dark Soul).[4]

Enredo

Oscar resgatando o Chosen Undead.

Após se tornar um undead o personagem do jogador foi aprisionado no Northern Undead Asylum. Ele é resgatado por Oscar de Astora, que joga uma chave na cela do jogador para que ele possa se libertar. Após escapar do Asylum Demon, o jogador encontra Oscar fatalmente ferido, que conta ao jogador sobre a profecia, declarando que um undead deve partir em peregrinação para tocar os Sinos do Despertar.

Oscar dá ao jogador um Estus Flask e morre em paz, confiando ao Chosen Undead para tomar seu lugar. Após derrotar o Asylum Demon, the Chosen Undead escapa do asilo e é levado para Lordran por um Corvo Gigante.

Após chegar em Lordran, o Corvo Gigante joga o player em Firelink Shrine, que age como um ponto central para o jogador para o resto da história. Depois que o Crestfallen Warrior diz a localização dos Sinos do Despertar, o jogador seque em sua jornada. Vários personagem podem ser encontrados por Lordran, como Solaire of Astora, um guerreiro carismático procurando "seu próprio sol"; o traiçoeiro cavaleiro Lautrec of Carim; e Siegmeyer of Catarina, um cavaleiro sem noção que sempre se encontra em perigos.

No telhado de Undead Parish, o jogador mata os Belfry Gargoyles e consegue tocar o primeiro sino. Logo depois, o jogador viaja para pantanos infestados de insetos em Blighttown. Lá, o jogador derrota Bruxa do Caos, Quelaag (Chaos Witch Quelaag) e toca o segundo sino. Depois de tocar os dois sinos, o portão para Sen's Fortress é aberto.

Conhecendo Gwynevere

Depois de pessar pelo desafio dos Sinos do Despertar, Kingseeker Frampt, uma serpente primordial, aparecerá para dar ao jogador uma nova missão antes que ele seja julgado digno do título de Chosen. O jogador precisa ir para o reino de Anor Londo e recuperar o Lordvessel de Gwynevere, filha de Gwyn, Lord of Cinder. Para concluir sua missão o jogador terá que passar por Sen's Fortress, um campo de testes antigo criado pelos deuses. Depois de passar pela fortaleza e todas suas armadilhas, o jogador enfrentará o Iron Golem, e com com sua derrota ganhará acesso à um reino esquecido.

Em Anor Londo, o jogador precisará ir para a catedral, onde enfrentara Dragonslayer Ornstein, um dos Quatro Cavaleiros de Gwyn, e Executioner Smough. O Chosen Undead triunfará sobre eles e ganhará acesso a câmara de Gwynervere, onde será recebido pela Princesa e pelo Lordvessel. Quando o Frampt reconhecer que o jogador completou sua missão, ele declarará que a profecia é verdadeira e que o mesmo é realmente a encarnação do Chosen Undead.

Alternate Paths

Placing the lordvessel.jpg

The player is given the choice to put the Lordvessel on the Firelink Altar and proceed along Frampt's designs. In this instance, Frampt prompts that the Chosen Undead is the hero destined to succeed Lord Gwyn and extend the Age of Fire, continuing the curse of the undead. On the other hand the player is given the choice to place the Lordvessel for another ancient serpent named, Darkstalker Kaathe, an agent of the Darkwraiths. These actions will bring about the eradication of the old gods, and usher in the Age of Dark.

The Lord Souls

To gain access to Gwyn, Lord of Cinder, the Chosen Undead must satiate the Lordvessel. Those who posses souls powerful enough are: Gravelord Nito, the Witch of Izalith, Seath the Scaleless and the Four Kings of New Londo.

In order to defeat the Four Kings, the Chosen Undead needs to acquire the Covenant of Artorias, a ring that is kept by the Great Grey Wolf Sif. The ring allows one to traverse the dark void called the Abyss. Upon arriving in the ruins of New Londo, the Chosen Undead, with the help of Ingward, drains the city, earning passage to the Darkwraiths and their masters. If the player has not yet placed the Lordvessel before defeating the Four Kings, Darkstalker Kaathe will appear in the abyss.

In the Duke's Archives the Chosen Undead confronts Seath the Scaleless, an albino dragon who betrayed the Ancient Dragons and won Lord Gwyn´s trust. During their first encounter the Chosen Undead is unable to cause any harm to Seath and is captured. Seath imprisons the Chosen Undead inside his prison tower where the player cannot warp. Despite the inconveniences, the Chosen Undead eventually escapes.

Finding the Primordial Crystal

Later on, the Chosen Undead learns from Big Hat Logan that Seath is immortal thanks to an ancient artifact known as the Primordial Crystal, an old relic that Seath stole from the Ancient Dragons. The Chosen Undead then parts to the Crystal Cave, where the artifact lies and shatters it. This annuls Seath's immortality, allowing the Chosen Undead to slay him.

The Chosen Undead also travels to the Catacombs, where they defeat Pinwheel and acquire the Rite of Kindling. The Chosen Undead then descends into the Tomb of the Giants, where the scavenger, Trusty Patches tricks the player and kicks them off a cliff. The Chosen Undead survives and rescues Reah of Thorolund, a maiden who ventured into Nito's domain in search of the Rite of Kindling. Finally, the Chosen Undead advances toward the deepest part of the area: Gravelord Nito's tomb. There, he or she finishes off the conductor of death.

Lastly, the Chosen Undead advances into the deepest part of Lordran: the Lost city of Izalith. If the player speaks to Quelana it will be discovered that her mother tried to use her power to replicate the First Flame, but failed and was engulfed within it, killing some of the daughters in the process and turning others into deformed creatures, with only Quelana and a Daughter of Chaos maintaining the entirity of their human forms. Within the city, the Chosen Undead comes upon the Bed of Chaos, the source of all the demons that wander Lordran, and overcomes it.

Epilogue

After offering the necessary Lord Souls, the doors to the Kiln of the First Flame are opened to the Chosen Undead. Lord Gwyn, in the final confrontation, breathes his last. It is here that the Chosen Undead may make his decision of either linking the flame or walking away from it. Depending on which course of action has been taken, one of the two possible endings will be unlocked. Whether the player has aligned himself with Kaathe or Frampt will not affect the ending of the game.

To Link the Fire.

  • Link the Fire: This ending is unlocked if the player lights the bonfire. In this ending it is discovered that Frampt succeeded in manipulating the Chosen Undead into linking the fire, so that the Age of Fire could continue and the gods could keep their position as the rulers of the world. A procedure plays out whereby the Chosen Undead's essence is consumed, sacrificing his or her soul and becoming a hollow, just as it happened to Gwyn when he did the same.

Dark Lord

  • Dark Lord: If the Chosen Undead walks away from the arena without lighting the bonfire, the player will be greeted by all the primordial serpents, bowing down before their new Dark Lord. The humans have become the leaders of the new world and the Age of Dark begins. Nevertheless, the flames have faded away, and the world will soon be engulfed by corruption and chaos. The Chosen Undead has become the ruler of a slowly dying world.

Artorias of the Abyss

Fighting the Sanctuary Guardian.

In the Artorias of the Abyss DLC the Chosen Undead travels back in time to the ancient realm of Oolacile, where they discover the truth about the death of the knight Artorias and the fall of Oolacile. The quest presented in this DLC is completely optional and therefore, it is not required to complete the game.

After being dragged back in time the, Chosen Undead wakes up inside a cave beneath some trees. Outside they are confronted by the Sanctuary Guardian. After slaying the beast, the Chosen Undead finds some sort of garden temple where they encounter a giant, talking mushroom named Elizabeth, who informs the player that the realm of Oolacile is being consumed by the darkness of the Abyss, She also tells the player that Princess Dusk has been kidnapped by a creature from the abyss and that Sir Artorias the Abysswalker has ventured unto Oolacile to put an end to the spread. Although she assures the player that Artorias will be overwhelmed by the darkness.

The Chosen Undead then heads towards Oolacile Township in search of Artorias and Dusk. On their way to Oolacile, the players encounter Black Dragon Kalameet, an optional boss that can be fought later in the DLC. Elizabeth's words are proven to be true when, upon entering the Coliseum, the player is attacked by a corrupted Artorias. The Chosen Undead has no other option than finishing him off as he is unable to come back to his senses. After killing Artorias, the Chosen Undead can either give his soul to Lord's Blade Ciaran so that she can complete a proper burial or keep it for their own uses.

During his quest in Oolacile the Chosen Undead also meets Marvelous Chester, a somewhat sinister merchant who, like the player, was dragged into the past. He reveals to the Chosen Undead that the spread of the dark was caused when the inhabitants of Oolacile opened the grave of the primeval man due to the influence of a "toothy serpent". The Chosen Undead then treads through Oolacile Township in search of the dark source.

Finally, the Chosen Undead arrives at the Chasm of the Abyss where an illusion of Alvina guides the player to an illusory wall. Inside, the Chosen Undead discovers an injured Sif, protected by a magic barrier created by Artorias, in order to prevent Sif from being engulfed. Shortly after rescuing Sif the player faces Manus, Father of the Abyss, who is responsible for the spread of the dark. Manus is defeated, and Princess Dusk is saved. Upon returning to Oolacile Sanctuary, they are greeted by Elizabeth, who tells the Chosen Undead that she will let everyone know that Artorias was the one who defeated Manus, so that his honor may prevail. However, she assures them that their great deed will not be forgotten.
