The following is an excerpt of a blog article.  Read Full Article

Scans from Famitsu's latest issue reveal tidbits of lore and show screens of enemies, spells, and npcs for the upcoming Dark Souls 3 DLC: Ashes of Ariandel. This article translates the contents to give players clarity. Just 5 days to official release on Oct 25th!
A battle vs a grotesque knight begins at the rotten waterfront. Its steel-clawed figure so nimble, what sort of offensive and defensive skills will it have?
 
“Please, cover your eyes” – The Nun of Ariandel in “Friede” form. She who lives in a small church at a spiritual cliff, looks after a Father who looks like a ball.

These images do look amazing.

Somehow these pics got my hype up even more. It just looks like (a) Dark Souls (game). The atmosphere is staggering. And to me, this area is dripping with atmosphere. It's like the first time I've seen Irithyll of the Borreal Valley. Such a great moment. I really can't wait anymore.

I really really believe this will contribute SO much to the game. And it is really needed. The content of the vanilla DSIII seemed too limited compared to the first 2 games. At least for me. And I've platinumed DSIII. Really looking forward to experiencing all of the new content.

So we have a new NPC Corvian? I'm starting to get really excited to see how this all ties together with Sulyvahn, the corvians and whoever the woman and "ball" are.

Also can someone explain what "freede" form is and shouldn't this also be posted in the lore section?

SPOILER Warning:
From the already known weapon descriptions, we know that the name of the third founding sister of the sable church of Londor is Elfriede. One description named her Friede. This immediately came to my mind when reading "freede". Maybe the woman in the trailer wielding the frost scythe is her.

Friede is the one? Japanese katana doesn't quite translate simply :p

Well, I don't know. That was just a guess when I read "freede" really.

Check the Crow Quills Description if you'd like:

"Thrusting sword wielded by Corvian Knights, and a special paired weapon. When twin-handed, brandish four thin-edge blades in the left hand.

In their infatuation with Sister Friede, the Corvian Knights swore to protect the painting from fire, and to this end, took to the execution of their own brethren."

The term "Sister Friede" definately fits a nun, I believe.

Ah nice catch. Also in the Hollow Lord ending we only see two of the sisters so it would make sense for them to explain where the third one went. Does this imply she has another form perhaps like the corvians grow wings or am I misunderstanding the use of the word form?


One other thing, does the father look like a ball because he's curled over? I mean that just sounded a little strange to me but the only alternative I can think of is bell which doesn't make too much sense to me either.

I think that's exactly what they mean. Him being curled up like a ball, staring into the bowl/vessel.

EDIT: It sounded strange to me too. But as Fex said, translating Japanese is like an art in and of itself.
Oh and your theory with a second form sounds very plausible. I think that'll be the case. This will probably be a crazy hard fight, if the "father guy" is fought immediately afterwards and her having multiple fight-forms. Still, I wish it to be that way. :D

I guess it does make sense.

She already looks extremely agile with that scythe, if she grows wings on top of that then I can see her being a very difficult enemy to take down. If she does grow wings I wonder if they'll look more angelic rather than the corrupted ones that the Corvians have. We could be getting far more answers than I initially imagined but I should control myself until these things are confirmed...

We've got a very similar thought process going on there mate. :D

Still, she could also sprout some "pus of man" traits as well I believe. But I like the "growing wings"-theory way more.
