In the kingdom of Lothric, the cycle of fire and dark continued, until the Lords of Cinder abandoned their collective duties to link the First Flame. Now, the task of defeating the Lords and returning them to their thrones falls to the "Unkindled," those risen from the ashes of Undead who failed to link the Flame themselves. An Unkindled's true power is their ability to harness the strength of fire, claimed from feats of virtue or battle. Yet, the Unkindled yearn for true warmth.
And so that it is, that ash seeketh embers.
