Is there anywhere in game that all this lore is coming from, or is this from some sort of guide? It seems like an awful stretch to be able to piece together all this from mere item descriptions.

I would not call the profane flame evil, it feels like more of a sub variation of what The witch of Izalith was trying to do, to create a endless flame, but its not directly linked to chaos but rather "fell from the sky" which could be it being made by the gods or a fallen god. I always considered the chaos flame to be a flame of survival , it mutates and warps to create new beings and due to its chaotic nature it can be more evil than good. It almost creates being that can survive in the world of the dark, which would make for an interesting souls game, dark vrs chaos flame.

There is a theory that Aldrich is Rosaria's son. What if Sullyvan married Rosaria, and this way he declared himself pontiff and directly went into the royal family inner circle? The deacons of the cathedral of the deep were linked to the way of white which iirc, in turn worshiped velka before the great coup that happened inside the faith. We can see all the covered statues of Velka indicating this coup, and is why Rosaria is in the cathedral of the deep locked away, as after the coup Sullyvan probably imprisoned her to establish the new order of the faith. Rosaria's first born ripped out her tongue apparently, (maybe aldrich ate it when born) and she awaits for his return (probably after having been made a lord of cinder, Sullyvan locked her away, and she waits for his eventual return). There is a Japanese myth about the first man and woman in the world, who had a child, and out of whom Rosaria is probably inspired of. I saw the great vid by another content creator about shinto and the deep (Cant remember the creators name, but it's a great video and actually where I heard the theory that Aldrich might be Rosaria's son, the title of the video is the bastard's curse, vaati has talked about it several times when talking about the deep and is a must watch for all fans I think). Now, the man and woman have a first born child which is interestingly described as being a monstrosity, with the blob body of a leech. In the myth the woman at some point speaks before her husband without permission, and is punished to teach her to respect him and remain silent, Rosaria is mute . At some point the woman dies, and the man goes to the underworld to retrieve her, but having been put into contact with the decay of the under world, the woman became a monstrousity and the man sealed her and the underworld away, like Rosaria is sealed away, probably by sulyvan after the coup. The woman then out of resentment of being betrayed and left becomes a spiteful spirit that haunts over man. swearling vengeance. This is why Rosarias fingers is a hostile covenant, and invade other worlds for pale tongues and revenge over the other gods that abbandons her. She supposedly had a child, who she never saw again, now bear with me, if Rosaria's child is actually Aldrich, then could his father is Sullyvan? this could explain the little doll inside his tomb in the cathedral, something that you would give only to a child (which itself in its description says that say Syllyvan gifted it to his dearest subjects). I'm talking about the doll we find his tomb in the cathedral of the deep, and why Aldrich was considered a saint at some point before he started devouring men. Also it might be why he devoured gwyndolin and not Rosaria (entirely, just a little tongue). Sulllyvan might even have tried to convert rosaria into one of his wild beasts, maybe using his eye ring as a wedding ring, but it must've been a difficult thing to do to the mother of rebirth right? Am I grasping at straws here? Or could Aldrich actually be the son of Rosaria and Sullyvan?

It's really amazing exactly how deep the Pontiff's influence goes through the game of DS3. I kind of wish he had gotten more of a spotlight, or a DLC (Friede was the star of AoA, sadly).

@Communsim 2 so as follow up, i researched my question and the answer is, the bonfire not only warps you through space but also time. Therefore, you anri and all the other undead are fighting the same bosses in different universes (which you both share in certain battles) and each one picks up the doll item on their universe. Although this explains how Siegward, greirat, Patches and anri get to irithyl, it still doesn't explain how Aldrich does

Basically all Sulyvahn managed to do, was recreate his old home the Painted World in the ‘real world’, because Irythll became blocked by a barrier that needs a doll, just like the old Painted World from DS1, and a place of faithful beasts and a god of rot. Whether he wanted to or not, he simply brought or created the stagnant sins of his old home. Maybe that was his goal, maybe he was angry that only the Painted World should be burned away and wanted the real world to be left to rot just as his home was. Except he decided that it would not be burnt away, instead it would rot and go to the deep:

You said that the profane flame may have corrupted him, but what if it was the opposite, think about it what if he's the reason the flame corrupt any one who touches it, after all every time the flame is reignited it takes a little from the soul of the one who ignited it, and it would make sense for him to do that, for it allows him to gain power, continue his plans while being sure that the giant and his kingdom are doomed.

I saw a really interesting theory on reddit a while back about the origins of the Profaned Flame. We find the flame in a capitol very close to the Boreal Valley, a very cold place. Fire, despite the age of light being named for it, has always been associated with Chaos, and the spell Profaned Flame is even a pyromancy, potentially linking it further to Chaos. Where did we last see the Chaos Flame in the Souls series? In a frozen land, being watched over by Alsanna, a Child of the Abyss. What does Andre have to say about the Profaned Coal? He sees the Abyss in it. We know that the Chaos Flame has burned out by Dark Souls 3, but it seems that its time under Alsanna's control may have changed it. After all, when has the Abyss not corrupted things? Maybe that's how we got the Profaned Flame.

I guess the False Pontiff and Sulyvahn are not the same person. Maybe the real Sulyvahn's soul is trapped in the Profaned Flame, and a bit of the flame took over his body.

8:38 this is the thing that i find weird about ds3 lore "far away in a city named lothric" so lothric, irithyll and the profaned capital are 3 distant kingdoms, yet they are less than 10 min away on foot from one another. I guess is for gameplay reasons but i find it hard to think of them as different kingdoms.😂

I think that Pontiff Sulyvahn was probably the first scholar that told Prince Lothric not to link the fire because it would benefit Sulyvahn when he inevitably tried to take over Lothric and kill the last of the Old Royalty. Also Sulyvahn's attire looks very similar to the attire of the Scholars, and when you think of it in cut content he was the final boss, and that would make perfect sense becuase he doubts the linking of the fire and does not want it to be done so of course he would try to stop you.

I actually think the Boreal Dancer is Cieran. Look at those weapons; they're very reminiscent of the Dark Silver Tracer and the Gold Tracer. I think when Sulyvahn took over, he tortured and corrupted her, turning her into his own black hand; which is why when you're about to go to Lothric to get his lord soul, she appears to assassinate you.

This video is old, and the theory has plot holes, but an interesting thing I think of when thinking about Aldrich is Gwyndolin. I know the items and NPC's say he was devoured by Aldrich, but what if Gwyndolin lied. What if Gwyndolin realized what was coming and actually killed Aldrich himself. The reason we see Aldrich the way he is because Gwyndolin was ashamed to kill one of the closest things to restoring his father's Age of Fire. He was so ashamed to be the one to kill Aldrich, so he hid himself away from the outside world, and created an illusion of Aldrich through his soul and through Aldrich's soul which would slightly resemble the traits of certain Gods. People would see this illusion of Aldrich in Anor Londo's Cathedral, and eventually everyone would become convinced that Aldrich had devoured The Dark Sun, hence why everyone in the game thinks so too.

My theory is that Vordt and the dancer were lovers. He saw her turned into a dancer and angered at Sulyvahn and planned to get her run away with him. Sulyvahn found out about the plan and called them both and told them to become outriders and offering the rings as "gifts" at this point Vordt thought it's a chance for them to run away but during their trip the ring start corrupting them and turning them into outrider beasts

speaking with a friend the other day, we discussed about Sulyvahn, this character is very complex one, a tyrant is a very easy way in my opinion, cast out, growing in a decadent place, but some key things, maybe everything is a revenge of him, Sulyvahn dominate people more powerful than him, and something interesting is: we find him without shoes, ragged clothes, maybe, and I say maybe, he sees himself like some kind of prophet, some kind of savior, I dont know, great character anyways..

Dehalove + it depends on the way you look at it and your opinions on it in mine I think the age of fire should have ended all the way back in ds1 like how the age of ancient ended where the dragons ruled it ended when the first flame appeared but when it was time for the age of fire to end gwyn refused to let his age end after seeing the dark and decided to burned himself to preserve his age of fire but before he did that he knew that flames eventually fades and the dark will be the only thing remaining so he made up a prophesy to trick the humans the ones who were ment to rule the next age the age of dark to fuel the fire and keep his age of fire. That's the way I look at it and that's why I never link the fire in any of the games
