  • SUBSCRIBE to see if you win the giveaway! ► a theory below for your chance to win a Deluxe Edition of Dark Souls 3 -- just in time for the new DLC, Ringed City!Dark Souls is, without question, my favorite modern gaming franchise. But doing a theory on these games requires an IMMENSE amount of explanation since every element of Dark Souls lore is hidden in things like item descriptions and design details. So today, I'm reviewing the entire Dark Souls story and setting up the pieces to unlock these games' greatest mystery -- who are you playing as in Dark Souls 3? Because when you actually put the puzzle pieces together, your character ISN'T just a nameless protagonist, but rather DOES have a lore behind him...but it's going to take a LONG time to get there. So apologies for the 2-parter, but in order to make sure everyone understands what's going on when I start getting deeper into Dark Souls Lore, I had to make sure we all had a solid understanding of the main plot and characters! And to make it better -- there's a giveaway! Huzzah!SUBSCRIBE to Catch all the Theories ► out with us on GTLive! ►► More Austin and The SCIENCE!?

    Dear Angry Commenters:
    1. I didn't delete VaatiVidya's comment. I NEVER delete comments. YouTube refreshes comment threads all the time to show more recent ones. His is probably buried in the 55,000 others the video has.
    2. Sorry we showed Patches' head on Siegward. The editors do a lot of Google Image searching, especially for franchises they're not as familiar with, and while I thought it was weird to see Siegward's face (I didn't remember it from my playthroughs and was something that, as I was giving notes gave me a red flag), I had forgotten that Patches steals his armor and didn't fully check it out. But one minor mistake like that shouldn't discount the theory, undermine my enthusiasm for this franchise, or prompt the rage you guys are sending.
    3. Yes, a lot of this is basic -- but I can't assume people know ANYTHING about Dark Souls and I want everyone to appreciate the lore of the series. The next episode gets REALLY deep, so I had to start everyone on the same level so next week's follow-up will make sense.

    Vatii's comment:
    In a Taiwanese interview with Miyazaki, he defines Unkindled as those who:
    "didn't succeeded in linking the fire and become cinder, but failed and burned to nothing. Unkindled is born out of their remaining ashes.
    The Ocelotte theory is nice, but considering this... it doesn't really make sense. Considering your timeline I doubt you could even say Ocelotte took on the Soul of Cinder and failed.
    Some other commentators are also rightly pointing out that Orbeck has a connection to the Princes, as he can be summoned for their fight and can die in the Archives, and is probably Unkindled
    (That's the whole comment, i will also give a link so you can check it yourself)

    The Lords of Cinder aren't just people who Linked the Fire; they're people who were strong enough to SURVIVE the process and became protectors of the First Flame.
    All the others who Linked the Flame died in the process.
