Once living, now Undead, and a fitting heir to father Gwyn thou art,

And beseech thee. Succeed Lord Gwyn, and inheriteth the Fire of our world.

Thou shall endeth this eternal twilight, and avert further Undead sacrifices.
— Gwynevere


Lord Gwyn is the final boss of the first Dark Souls game, and is one of the Lords of Cinder who defeated the dragons. Lord Gwyn is among those who linked the flames, but ultimately altered the course of the history, for he was not meant to do so, and entered the world in a constant ebbing of light and dark. It is assumed he largely shortened the lifespan of humanity by doing this. He prolonged the age of fire by doing this.

After defeating the dragons, he formed an order of four knights, including the legendary knights Ornstein the Dragonslayer, Artorias the Abysswalker, Hawkeye Gough, and Lord's Blade Ciarin. He has three children- Gwynevere, the daughter, Gwyndolin, the son, and Yorshka, the half-breed.
