Starting Classes for NPC Cosplay

What this mod does

The mod adds 30 new starting classes to cosplay in-game NPCs and bosses.

Set 1:
  • Solaire of Astora
  • Oscar, Knight of Astora
  • "Trusty" Patches
  • Siegmeyer of Catarina
  • Black Iron Tarkus
  • Kirk, Knight of Thorns
  • Xanthous King, Jeremiah
  • Lord's Blade Ciaran
  • Knight Lautrec of Carim
  • Domhnall of Zena

Set 2:
  • Quelana of Izalith
  • Havel, the Rock
  • Marvellous Chester
  • Big Hat Logan
  • Lady of the Darkling (firekeeper)
  • Gwyn
  • Artorias
  • Smough
  • Ornstein
  • Priscilla

Set 3:
  • Maneater Mildred
  • Paladin Leeroy
  • Oswald of Carim
  • Witch Beatrice
  • Petrus of Thorolund
  • Shiva of the East
  • Ingward
  • Rhea of Thorolund
  • Undead Prince Ricard
  • An apostle from Path of the Dragon

  • Stats, weapons, armor, rings and spells are based on the actual in-game NPCs data (bosses though have none unfortunately).
  • Face of the character will be exactly the same as the NPCs (when it is available).
  • Gwyn sword permanently shows the fire effect and does a bit fire damage.
  • You get 1-2 mid game gestures for every NPC-based character (for example Praise the Sun for Solaire).
  • You get 3 items for online play: white & red soapstones and red orb.

Known limitations:
  • The mod for English language only.
  • All characters start at high or mid soul level, so they are hugely OP for early game. But at the late game it should be fine, since all character stats a balanced to have 82-85 stat points at SL1.

Installation instructions

  • Download my files and unpack them.
  • Create a back up of your Dark Souls Remastered folder.
  • Pick a character set you need (see above).
  • Copy all content of my Data_Set[X] folder to your Dark Souls Remastered folder and replace the files when prompted.
  • Switch Steam to offline mod.
  • Launch Dark Souls via Steam.
P.S. If your language is not English you need either to switch it to English or to copy content of msg/ENGLISH folder to msg/[your_language] to be able to read the new text.

Online play

It's highly recommended to set Steam to offline to avoid risk of been banned. There were several reports that you can get banned if you use this mod, even if you uninstall it, but keep playing with the modified character.


It's compatible with most of the mods, since you can install the mod, create a character, and then install another mod to play with the character. The only exception is Gwyn's Sword fire effect, for it you need my GameParam file.

If you like the mod please press that "Endorse" button.
