The Maiden in Black
the maiden in black

The Maiden in Black is said to have once been one of the most powerful Demons in existence. Her ability to harness and manipulate the souls of the player-character certainly seems interesting. She maintains a direct communion with the Old One, and is even able to lull it back to sleep should the character accept her offer, making her considerably more powerful than it.

Tendency Events:

  • None


  • Talk to her to increase stats. You cannot upgrade stats until you have beaten the boss of 1-1 Phalanx
  • Don't worry about accidentally attacking the Maiden - she'll never become hostile, and, after a short delay, comes back to life when killed.
  • She moves around a bit, but is always visible near the archstones. The places she can be found are:
    • Sitting next to the last Archstone you entered
    • Standing directly next to Stockpile Thomas
    • Standing between Boldwin and the Archstone for Boletarian Palace
    • Sitting against a column across the hall from Thomas, towards the Valley of Defilement
    • Standing at the edge of the transparent seal in the center floor
    • Beside the small statue where you re-appear when you die in the Nexus
    • Standing in the center of the stairs leading down to the area with dozens of messages.
  • If you choose the good game ending, you get the Maiden in Black's Demon's Soul (can be used to purchase the spell Soulsucker from Yuria during NG+).
