One of the former Knights of Lord Gwyn, the corrupted Knight Artorias is now a collectible statue from First 4 Figures.
A corrupted boss of the Dark Souls “Artorias of the Abyss” DLC, Sir Artorias was one of the “Four Knights of Lord Gwyn”, and a revered Darkwraith hunter within the Abyss, a shroud of dark magic capable of corrupting all things within; though his Greatsword was corrupted through exposure to the Abyss, Artorias was able to prevent a curse upon himself through the magic of his Wolf Ring. In his last moments in a battle against Manus and the encroaching Abyss, Artorias sacrificed himself to protect his Great Grey Wolf companion Sif. By the time the player finds Artorias within the past version of the Ooclacile Township Colosseum. the “Abysswalker” has fully succumb to the darkness, noted by the dark aura emanating from within his armor.
