D, Beholder of Death (real name: Devin) is an NPC in Elden Ring. He can be found in Nokron, Eternal City, east of the Great Waterfall Basin grace. To interact with D, Beholder of Death, you need the Twinned Armor. If given the armor, he will be available as a summon against the Valiant Gargoyle pair. He is the twin brother of Darian, also known as D, Hunter of the Dead.

 

 Ah, aah... D-da...ri... Ngh...nnngh...

 

D, Beholder of Death Location and Questline in Elden Ring:

D, Beholder of Death can be found at Nokron, Eternal City, east of the Great Waterfall Basin grace, against the railing of the balcony just outside the Valiant Gargoyle boss arena in the Siofra Aqueduct. (Map Link)

Attempting to interact with him awards the player with the Inner Order gesture.

If given the unaltered Twinned Set, he can be summoned to assist with the Valiant Gargoyle and Valiant Gargoyle (Twinblade) in the Siofra Aqueduct, next to where he can initially be found.  Reloading the map or observing his summon sign will make him disappear from his initial location.
He can next be found at Fia's location in the Deeproot Depths, if the player has received the Mending Rune of the Death-Prince from her and given him the Twinned Set. After reloading the area he will be found gloating over her corpse, finding her dead. [Elden Ring Map Link]

After interacting with him next to Fia, exhausting his dialogue, and reloading the area again, he will have vanished, leaving the Twinned Set and the Inseparable Sword behind.

If the player has acquired the Twinned Set from Darian, Hunter of the Dead by killing him at his first location and given Devin the Twinned set, he will instead turn hostile upon reloading the area and attack the player. He will drop the Twinned Set and Inseparable Sword if defeated.

Dialogue in Elden Ring: D, Beholder of Death

When spoken to before questline progression

  • <sleeping>

After giving Twinned Armor

  • "Ah, aah...
    D-da...ri...
    Ngh...nnngh..."

After giving Twinned Armor and reloading the area, if D was killed by the player at Limgrave

  • (Combat) "You will know vengeance for Darian.
    The wrath of D..."

Finding him at Fia's body

  • "Ha! Prince of Death, take a good long look!
    See the wrath of the Golden Order! The Order's justice, writ in blood!
    This is what's become of your precious witch! Naught but expired meat and bone!
    Look at this rotten *****. No more children can be got from this useless flesh!
    Behold, your mother is dead!
    Heh heh heh heh...This is revenge, you witch! And you, you ghoul! This is the wrath of D!"

Talking to him afterwards

  • "Ah. Hello.
    The rotten witch is dead. The Golden Order, unsullied.
    Now I can look my brother Darian in the eye.
    Honeyed rays of gold, deliver my spirit."
  • "Darian, now I have no regrets.
    Honeyed rays of gold, deliver my spirit."

When attacked

  • (Warning)
    "Oof!"
    "What's the meaning of this? Has she bewitched you?"
  • (Combat)
    "Very well. Then you are a blight. A defiler of the Golden Order, and murderer of my brother. 
    Die! Die! Die!"
    "I'll grind your corpse into that vile wench's rotting remains. A witch's eternal embrace, just as you wished!"
  • (On player kill)
    "You defiled cretin. My brother is now avenged!"

When killed

  • "How could this...
    Forgive me, Darian... D-Darian..."

 

Elden Ring D's Twin Brother Notes & Trivia

  • A golden barrier is protecting him at his first location if rolling, jumping or attacking (near) him.
  • He is first mentioned (unless the player kills his brother in Limgrave) in Rogier's Letter.
  • His name is Devin; D mentions his name when apologizing whilst dying if the player kills him at Limgrave.
  • If provoked after giving him the armor, D's Brother wields the Inseparable Sword and a sacred seal, which he uses to cast Discus of Light.
  • Killing him for his gear is unnecessary: exhausting his dialogue after he kills Fia and reloading the area by resting at the nearby grace will result in him vanishing, with his gear left behind at the spot he was standing.

      If you give him the armor after completing Fia's questline but before fighting the gargoyles (by using the alternate entrance to Deeproot), his summon sign never appears. He just skips straight to his final location in Deeproot.

        I came to peace with Fias philosophy, then this guy shows up and gloats over her corpse like wheel guy from bloodborne
        I killed him right after that. don't forget to downvote me.

          Guys, I'm on my first playthrough and don't see the big picture yet. Can anyone please explain what is going on in this comment section? The amount of dislikes is terrific.

            It is worth noting that it is just a video game. I mean there is nothing wrong with playing and enjoying it but I feel like some of you are having trouble separating the game from reality.

              I like to kill him with the Eclipse Shotel, then do the goldmask ending anyways (I only did Fia's questline to fight the cool dragon)

                I call D and D giga-twins.
                This one helps you with the shitty gargoyle duo.
                D helps you with the black knife assasin in the catacombs.
                Both of them are based as well.

                  What is this comment section? I've seen many comments here saying things like "D is murder. I wish I could kill him the Moment I saw him and torture him in the most painful way possible!" And other saying things like "Fia is Murderer and an undead apologist who is an objectively bad person. Everyone who defends her is a simp!" I think we should all take a step back to remember that we are speaking about a VIDEO GAME. It is a fictional story with fictional characters who interact with each other in order to progress an optional questline. It's as if everyone in this comment section has engrossed themselves into a fictional world too much and get so attached to either the D brothers or Fia. The result is that everyone in the comments is warring over whether Fia or D are morally correct in their actions and yelling at each other because whenever an NPC they like gets attacked they feel personally offended and obligated to argue back.

                  I'm not saying it's wrong to discuss lore or even the morality of these characters' actions. What I am saying is that if we are to discuss these things we need to remember we are talking about fiction here and speak about them like rational and mature, sane human-beings. So please, for the sake of your own health, Ya'll should go touch some grass.

                    I don't know why anyone would choose to simp for Fia after killing D. Her useless baldichins are nothing to the help he gives. The golden order are right in not wanting a bunch of skeletons walking around the world. If you want the best future, you should kill Fia yourself instead of helping her.

                      Most based character in elden ring, I really wish his quest was longer. D is too cool to have such a short quest line.

                          I killed Fia at the prince of deaths throne after she murdered D, I gave D's brother the armor set after that and when I reloaded the area, he had disappeared, where did he go? I can't find him at Fia's location

                            I feel like D brothers questline should've been a bit longer, because I still don't understand how tf Devin gotten into a Nokron of all places, a city that is closed off to everyone. even PC can get there after a frickin meteorite falls somewhere close to it. so was Devin a part of expedition ? then why he doesn't look like those skinny white dudes ? was he trapped there ? is this why he needs his brother armor ? so he can remember who is he because he was trapped there for so long ? and how tf he has a sword identical to his twin brother ?

                                Look, everyone in this storyline dies no matter what you or any of them does. This is not like Nephali Loux where you can actually reach the end of the game and have her still alive.

                                Sure, you can make an abstract judgement of whom to blame and whom to help, but in practical terms you don't really get a vote.

                                  Even though he didn't actually kill her, him stabbing her would certainly prevent her "living within death", a reasonable concern for someone who just birthed a rune from the source of all deathblight. That, or maybe he was just in a silly goofy mood

                                      Literally everything in game suggest that "Those who live in death" are sad, evil beings reanimated by Godwyn's curse. Essentially just corpses that don't have free will or intelligence and only exist to fight. The D Brothers are literally doing the dead service by destroying those corpses to let those who the corpses belonged to rest. While Fia has deluded herself that those eternally suffering beings created by an eldricht horror of a mutilated corpse are somehow an oppressed race and not the victims of Destined Death going haywire and wants to curse all the living beings to wander the world the same way and yet people in comments are arguing that D's are the bad ones??

                                          This comment section is utterly depressing. People bragging about how they killed a character in a video game because he stabs her (I never said she was alive when he stabbed her). She is a fictional character who killed another character’s brother, try to look at it from this guys side. Almost everyone in this comment section (including me) needs to get some serious help.

                                            I don't really blame this guy, like how would you feel if you found out some weird lady who sleeps with corpses recently murdered your twin brother who is literally half of your very being? doubt any sane person would still be willing to simp for her.

                                              You can finish Fia's questline entirely, including killing her champions & the lichdragon, and only then give D's brother the armor. He will NOT be available as an NPC for the gargoyle fight (I found this out on NG+2), but he will still appear over Fia's corpse in Deeproot Depths gloating over her body, just as if you did his part of the quest first before meeting Fia there. Either way, listen to him rant a bit, reload at the nearby grace, and you'll get the armor + sword. Considering he's only really good as an NPC summon for the gargoyles during a first run-through - as by NG+ you almost certainly have a maxed out mimic tear or Tiche - he's not really worth bothering with. Especially as he will instantly end Fia's questline if you talk to him first. So depending on what you want to do first - Fia's Quest + likely getting that ending, or another ending - you might just want to skip him entirely until you're almost completely done.

                                                He doesn't kill fia. She died producing the mending rune. This guy stabs a body and does mental gymnastics so that he thinks he avenged his fantatic brother.

                                                  You would think he would be a calm character like Darian. But when he kills Fia and starts his little rant I was like, uh does D,s brother always talk like a sociopath.

                                                      D is, imo at least, a cool, morally dubious, but probably justifiably vengeful character who is in direct opposition to a woman who is also a cool, morally dubious, but probably justifiably vengeful character. The way they're presented, that irony makes itself feel very apparent, and goes to show how basically nothing is going to get done without an outsider's perspective taking the reins.

                                                      This particular comments section doesn't seem to see the moral nuance here. It's always either "s/he's a good guy" or "s/he's a bad guy". How can we say that for certain without knowing the full story anyways, one way or another? What the circumstances were when everything that transpired, transpired?

                                                        So, I gave him the armor set and proceeded to fight and kill the Gargoyles without ever seeing his sign, dying, or sitting at a grace or in the coffin after the fight and he also disappeared, which isn't mentioned as something that would happen, unless of course the very act of going into the boss arena unloads the rest of the level, which I've not seen any evidence of while playing, but I suppose could be possible, so just figured I' say something in order to help make the page a bit more accurate in the event someone with an account to edit the page with happens to read this.

There are plenty of NPCs that can be fought that hit way harder and have a much more challenging pool of health. My build isn't even good on the file I destroyed him on. It only took 2 hits. I ended up having to run in circles to hear his whole dialogue. I recognize that the real end of the quest boss has already been defeated at this point, but if the assumption is that the player has become the champion of Fia who will carry out the rest of her hopes for the world, it would feel good if ending Devin was at all difficult. I do like the fact that you don't have to choose to kill him, but you can.

She killed his brother. I get it. I offed him because I wanted fewer fanatical Golden Order nutjobs hanging around. "Now he can look his brother Darian in the eye" in the afterlife.

Like bruh. You can't tell me this was supposed to be his whole deal.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          • Ha apeared to me before killing the dragon, even before Fia was at Deeproot Depths and was already saying "Ah, aah...
                                                                                            D-da...ri...

                                                                                            • This guy was definitely a flop on the narrative end of things. He's just Alfred, but worse in every way. Too far into the game to have any bond or relevance to the player; hardly any lore apart from "sit/stand around and brood/look cool". Those points can be applied to D, himself, too. Even his speech at the end of his success pales in comparison to Alfred's VA's immaculate delivery. His only redeeming quality (maybe) is that he can be summoned for the Valiant Gargoyles. Waste of a cool armor design, unlike Alfred, who gets my Chad seal of approval for rocking the best headgear in Yharnam.

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                                    • "This NPC can be fought (either at the end of Fia's questline, or at his initial location if the player killed D in Limgrave)."

                                                                                                      This seems to be wrong. I killed D, rested at a grace and he didn't appear. I restarted the game, he still didn't appear. There is no summon mark either.

Will it prevent you from achieving the Prince of Death ending?

                                                                                                          The cynical author in my does nitpick in the fact that he as a character seems arbitrary compared to his brother and almost entirely serves to the purpose of avenging his brother but it's better than going insane and forcing the player to kill you like Blaidd

You only get her departing dialogue when you reach the small house in leyndell and pick up her dress and lionels armor to progress into fighting the lich dragon. Otherwise she just repeats herself until you do that....also ds brother only shows up AFTER killing the lich dragon which is not mentioned at all here.

I progressed fia to where shes at the depths, then i gave ds brother the armor and he disappeared from his balcony. Now i just killled fias champions and ds brother isnt there next to her like this says he should be...i followed every step and something isnt right...hes not showing up

                                                                                                                      It absolutely makes sense to stab her a couple times even if she's dead if you look at it like that. It also bringing him satisfaction cause she killed his brother is a not really a negative cause revenge is part of human nature, especially under these circumstances.



                                                                                                                      Personally I'm glad that the Elden Ring world won't have to deal with an undead of "Orphan of Kos (Fia)", they already have enough monstrous **** running around.
