"Golden lion helm associated with Dragonslayer Ornstein, from the age of gods, and imbued with the strength of lightning." "In the dragonless age, this knight, who long gaurded the ruined cathedral, left the land in search of the nameless king." -Dragonslayer Helm. I think this pretty much covers these two being seperate beings, I can stop ranting about it now. The spelling errors aren't mine though, it's copied exactly as it's written in-game.
