Yeah it is confirmed that it is in fact a he. Not just by some item descriptions from the first one but also in a rings description in ds3 where it gets clear that he was in fact raised as a daughter while actually beeing a male.
"Born a boy but raised as a girl" is a (clumsy) way of describing a trans woman, in which case Gwyndolin is a she. Some of us choose this interpretation, however, you are free to interpret it however you like. Please be respectful :)

To the first guy who replied under your comment, if someone is forced or just raised as the opposite gender it's definitely an assumption to say they're the opposite gender. in this case If you're born a guy but raised as a girl it's not disrespectful to call them a guy if they are one. Especially if that person doesn't have a problem with it or identifies as they're correct gender, I'm not the best at explaining but I have no problem calling someone by what they choose to identify as but is there any proof Gwyndolin himself chooses to identify as a woman? It just says he was raised as one not that he identifies as such.
"is there any proof Gwyndolin himself chooses to identify as a woman?" she presents as female so it can only be assumed she identifies as such. at no point does she herself claim to be male or a man. is there any proof gwyndolin herself chooses to identify as a man? the words of *others* (like her sister gwenevere or her dad gwyn) do not take precedent.

Also cheese him with no armor and a bigass wapeon.
what connection does he have with Priscilla
please state what you think, I won't judge
this is just my theory by what i can gather... priscilla is possibly his half sister (not from gwyn's side) who may even be yorksha.... though...that is really up for debate. but she was placed in hiding by gwyndolin or their mother in the painted world since she is a half breed/ dragon-kin. this may be off topic but, really wish there was more information about the wife of gwyn, since her lore would tie a lot of things together because it's speculated she slept with seath the scaleless lol
His momma
Best pretty boi in the series
What about Solaire? After all, the moon can only be seen because of the sun...
I'd Smash
Amazing trap ahead
Blackbow of Pharis+15 + 49 poison arrows = Soul of Gwyndolin. Easy cheesy...
who changed this characters pronouns? LOL seriously?
fixed
to the person who said "fixed" thank you. it urks me when people (WHO PROBABLY NEVER BOTHERED TO PLAY THE GAME) keep suggesting gwyndolin is a woman when he clearly did not choose that life to be raised as a daughter , and obviously refers to himself as a male. HIS OWN SISTER CALLS HIM "BROTHER"
Some dumb tranny changed them all to "she" a while back, and then someone fixed them shortly after. Gwyndolin is male, through and through.
Evidence for Gwyndolin personally identifying as male pls - by personally I don't mean in the words of relatives or others, but personally, in Gwyndolin's words.
i mean, considering the third anon in this chain's use of multiple slurs to refer to trans people who change gwyndolin's pronouns correctly to she/her, i'd recommend taking a judgment. sleep with dogs, end with fleas. sleep with channers, end with fascists. again: evidence for gwyndolin personally, not by the words of others, in her *own words* identifying as male. otherwise, her pronouns are she/her
My interpretation for how Gwyndolin came to be is that he is a replacement for Filianore, Gwyn's youngest daughter. It's strongly suggested that Filianore was actually the first fire keeper, but she was terrified by a premonition she had of the failure of Gwyn's plans and the fading of the First Flame. Gwyn removed her eyes and stuck her in the Ringed City to guard the Dark Soul, and lied that he would return for her one day. To replace her, he sired Gwyndolin with Priscilla, the half-breed bastard abomination, and possibly had assistance from Seath to make a fire keeper out their child, judging by Gwyndolin's association with sorcery, the moon, the Moonlight Butterfly, and the Pisacas, which were evidently once fire keepers themselves, and why Gwyndolin was raised a daughter. It's possible that beneath his helmet, Gwyndolin also lacks eyes, just like the rest of the fire keepers in DS3, so as to prevent him from realizing the inevitable rise of the dark.

From descriptions of the fire keepers' souls, a fire keeper receives the humanity that is offered to the fire for kindling and is gnawed by their attraction to the fire. The more humanity she harnesses, the stronger the fire burns. This is also true for the Chaos Flame and the First Flame, and without a fire keeper, dark humanity would escape into the world again, and the flame would dissipate.

However, when the Age of Dark encroached upon the world, Gwyn relieved Gwyndolin of his duty as the fire keeper, and offered up his own soul to embolden the First Flame. Gwyndolin was relegated to guard the now desolate city of Anor Londo, and charged with convincing a "Chosen Undead" to follow in Gwyn's footsteps and become the fuel for the First Flame, at the cost of their very soul. (The Anor Londo fire keeper mentions that Gwyndolin "made her" a fire keeper, perhaps by giving up his own fire keeper's soul, which he no longer needed.)

If you look at Anor Londo from the side, you'll notice that beyond Gwynevere's chamber is another staircase leading to a solitary tower. This tower is the exact same design as the one where we find Princess Filianore in the Ringed City, indicating that she once had a role in Anor Londo, but was moved to the Ringed City, a sort of imitation of Anor Londo, much later. (The missing statue in Ornstein and Smough's arena could have depicted either the Nameless King or Filianore, both of which were meant to be forgotten for their failures.)

As for what happened to Priscilla, she was once kept imprisoned somewhere within Anor Londo, but when the world became unhinged after Gwyn sacrificed himself, her soul found peace in the Painted World of Ariamis. The Painting Guardians were stationed to prevent anyone's access to the Painted World, and to imprison whatever inhabitants sought to escape. They exist to hide the secret of Gwyn's tryst with Priscilla, perhaps even from Gwyndolin, her own bastard child.

When Gwyndolin falls ill in DS3, he becomes prey for Aldrich, who is assisted by Sulyvahn, a native of the Painted World who discovered the truth about the gods and sought to destroy them. Yorshka is possibly the daughter of Priscilla and some unknown entity, perhaps one of the two painters, Ariamis or Ariandel. It is possible that Gwyndolin truly is the half-brother of Yorshka, and the discovery of such a fact is what prevents Gwyndolin from assisting the Chosen Undead any further, as his ability to serve his father's will is destroyed by his subsequent disgust. He is rendered defenseless, and Aldrich has no trouble gaining access to Anor Londo and consuming Gwyndolin.

Anyway I'm crying again so my keyboard might be broken in a seco
Gwyndolin has eyes in Dark Souls 3. Look under his mask, it is there.
Incredible theory! I almost wanna call it canon - it sounds so logical to me.
This fight is such a pain in the *** on ng+ cycles
I kinda want his armor set but I don't want to be permenantly sinned for it. If I kill him in NG, will he still be aggressive towards me in NG+?
no he wont be aggresive towards you
