Voiced by Peter Caulfield

Diallos is an NPC in Elden Ring. Diallos is a noble you'll come across at the Roundtable Hold. Upon welcoming you, he mentions that he's looking for a loyal servant to his house called Lanya, and asks you to tell him if you happen to come across her.

 

The tale of House Hoslow is told in blood.
I, Diallos, swear to deliver that promise.

Diallos Location in Elden Ring

Diallos can be found at Roundtable Hold.

 

Diallos Questline: How to complete Diallos' Quest

  • After talking with Diallos at the Roundtable Hold, you'll find him to the North and slightly West of the Academy Gate Town Site of Grace in Northern Liurnia [Map link] atop a sunken roof.
    • Diallos is standing at ground level west of the grace on the northern edge of the town ruins. If you look on the map, he's located at almost exactly the rightmost tip of the Academy Gate Town icon.
    • NOTE: If you complete the Volcano Manor legacy dungeon before speaking to Diallos here, he will not appear and you cannot complete the quest - making this progression a potential point of failure.
  • He will then be at the Roundtable Hold again. Exhaust his dialogue, where he talks about having discovered where the recusants are coming from.
  • He'll be at Volcano Manor, in the drawing room, having decided to join the organization. Diallos gets new dialogue for every step of the Volcano Manor assassination sidequests the player completes. His last line of dialogue before he relocates has him lament over how easily he was swayed to join the recusants.
  • After accepting the second letter from Volcano Manor, he will leave the manor and relocate to Jarburg.
  • After progressing Jar-Bairn's questline he will appear in one of the shacks, tending to a little jar.
    • Repeatedly talk to Jar-Bairn and rest at the Site of Grace in Jarburg until Jar-Bairn talks about poachers. If you've gotten this questline to advance, Jar-Bairn will talk about a new Potentiate who's just arrived.
  • After seeing him in Jarburg, let some time pass. Once enough time has passed, and you can talk to Diallos once more. After exhausting dialogue with him and Jar-Bairn you can rest to advance the quest.
  • After exhausting Alexander's dialogue in Radahn's Arena after Radahn's defeat and thus progressing that questline, Jar-Bairn will mention poachers in their dialogue. exhaust it and reload the area. Jarburg will have been attacked and Diallos is wounded. Exhaust his and Jar-Bairn's dialogue and he'll ask if he was able to defend the jars, to which you can tell him he succeeded or he failed. He will die shortly after either way. Upon reloading the area, Jar-Bairn will move over to Diallos, scavenging his remains and taking up Diallos's legacy.
  • Exhaust Jar-Bairn's dialogue and reload the area and, Diallos’s body will disappear, leaving behind Diallos's Mask, one Hoslow's Petal Whip, and a Numen's Rune where he was last encountered.

 

Dialogue in Elden Ring: Diallos

Introduction

  • Ah, hello. You must be new here. I'm... 
    Well, just call me Diallos.
    The honor of one's house holds little import in these lands.
    By the way, have you met a young woman named Lanya on your travels?
    She's my servant, but fickle as the wind.
    Take your eyes off her for but a moment and she's good as gone.
    If you find her, please be sure to tell me.
  • Be sure to tell me If you meet a young woman named Lanya.
    She's a servant to my house. She's been my companion since childhood.
    I've lost count of the number of times I've had to find her like this.
    Honestly, she's such a little tomboy.

At Academy Gate Town

  • Lanya... Lanya... It's me Diallos. Answer me, would you?
  • Hello, friend. Tell me if you know, would you.
    The whereabouts of the hidden house of those despicable fiends.
    The recusants who hunt their fellow Tarnished.
    They laid hands upon my servant Lanya, and I refuse to let the insult stand.
    "The tale of House Hoslow is told in blood."
    I, Diallos, swear to deliver the message.
  • They laid hands upon my servant Lanya, and I refuse to let the insult stand.
    "The tale of House Hoslow is told in blood."
    I, Diallos, swear to deliver the message.

At the Roundtable Hold

  • Ah, you again is it? The recusants sent a lackey.
    Can you believe they invited me to join them? Now! After what they did...
    I can scarcely believe it myself. Do they think me a fool?
    You might be surprised to learn I took them up on the offer.
    Then I only had to ask. The location of the recusant hideout.
    It's on Mt. Gelmir, found off the old road that leads west from the town of windmills.
    That's where they hide. The manor on the peak.
    Just you wait, wretched recusants.
    You'll rue the day you insulted my name by laying hands on Lanya.
    "The tale of House Hoslow is told in blood" after all.

At Volcano Manor

  • Ah. Oh... I-it's you is it? Well. Nice to see you again.
    So you've been invited as well, I see.
    Then we're comrades in arms, henceforth. You watch my back, and I'll watch yours, yes?
  • I, um... I can tell... You're wondering about Lanya... Well, you see, I...
    After much internal debate. I've come to realise... Revenge is not the answer
    According to Lady Tanith... I've got the stuff of champions.
    And champions, ironic as it is, are oft forced walk a tainted a path.
    It hit me like a bolt from the blue... That my former thoughts were simple naiveté.
    Of course, my heart weeps for Lanya. That unfortunate incident was a cruel twist of fate indeed.
    But succumbing to the pain and sadness caused won't make me a champion, will it.
    Lanya knows this, I'm certain. Fate has laid hard roads for us both.
    But such is true of any road trod by champions.
  • I always resented these hands.
    Their pale complexion, a far cry from any warrior's. The shame of House Hoslow.
    But that won't be the case for long.
    They'll be darkened by grit, once I've set out on the path of champions.
    "The tale of House Hoslow is told in blood" after all.

After doing the Volcano Manor questline

  • It's just as my noble brother says. I'm a complete fool. I can't believe I thought I could become a champion.
  • Ah, it's you is it. I'm terribly sorry, but would you mind giving me some time to myself.
    I haven't achieved anything at all thus far. Even though I've dirtied my hands time and time again.
    I'm still yet to achieve anything. Perhaps I am a fool after all...
    No. It's worse than that. As things stand I've given up on the path of revenge and sullied the name of my house.
    What an easy mark I must have been... How did it take me so long to realise, honestly.
    There's just no end to my foolishness, is there...

Jarburg

  • (Overheard talking to NPC jar) Well. Aren't you full of beans. No wonder you're covered in muck.
  • Oh? My friend, it's been far too long. I have to say you caught me at a rather low point. But... as you can see, I've put all that behind me. Left the Volcano Manor. Forging my own path now. Making my own choices. Even a fool like me can look after some simply jars. Do you pity me? Well don't. I feel like for the first time in my life I'm on the straight and narrow.

After Jarburg is attacked

  • ...Ah, you... Are the jars... they alright? Did I defend them?
  • ("You defended them") 
    Then all is well... This fool proved his worth, in the end...
  • (“I'm afraid not") 
    Ha ha...ha... I see... I see... I've been a fool... to the last...

When attacked at Academy Gate Town

  • (Warning)
    Agh! What on earth was that for?
  • (Combat)
    Now I see. You're a wretched recusant! May you rue the day that you thought to trample me! The tale of House Hoslow is told in blood! In blood!
  • (On player kill)
    Lanya, your honour has been restored. You can rest easy.

When attacked at Jarburg

  • (Warning)
    Ugh! What's the matter? Please, stop! I've no quarrel with the Volcano Manor. I will never brandish a sword again, I swear!
  • (Combat)
    Why on earth...? Wait, you're a poacher, aren't you? I'll turn my back on duty no more. The tale of House Hoslow is told in blood! In blood!
  • (On player kill)
    Unharmed, thank the stars.

When defeated

  • (At Academy Gate Town)
    Ha ha...ha... I am the shame of House Hoslow after all...
  • (In Jarburg)
    Ahhh, just what I deserve... For absconding from my duties... I'm sorry, my dear jars...

      Im not sure what triggered it, but while i was in volcano manor behind the walls, diallos had a brief dialogue about how his brother was right about his foolishness. The dialogue wasn't voiced, just text, i think it was just bugged cut dialogue maybe?

      • Anonymous

        Accidentally murked Jar-Bain’s posse of pots, but at a later stage of the game I was able to exhaust Diallos’ dialogue at volcano Manor. Currently, two assassination contracts are pending along with Rykard boss fight. However, Diallos has not spawned at Jarburg nor do I think he will spawn. Is it possible to have locked myself out of the Diallos quest?

        • Anonymous

          Interesting, in my current playthrough I exhausted his dialogue at Volcano Manor and he left, and I forgot about it for days. I finally went to jarburg and it was already destroyed by poachers and Diallos was dying. I wonder what the trigger is for skipping the intermediate steps?

          • Anonymous

            Very well designed character and I love his' voice acting. Going from a young unexperienced rich knight looking for his' servant to then become an manipulated knight believing to have the strength of champions under the banor of Volcano Manor and then become the potentate of jarbug and savior of Jar-bairn.

            He was worthy the title of Hoslow. He fought for a cause he really believed in and in the end saved the one Jar who really cared about him. Which might be the only person who really cared about him in the end.

            Rest in peace for a good character.

              I' m at the end of the game, completed Volcano Manor and got Jar-Bairn to talk about poachers. But no matter what I do, Diallos does not appear.

              • Anonymous

                Some notes I've observed that aren't really spelled out here:
                * You have to engage with Alexander to some extent (not sure if you need to go as far as I did) before Jar-Bairn well mention poachers, regardless of Diallos' progress. I completed the second Volcano Manor letter and got Diallos to leave there, but until I talked with Alexander after the Radahn Festival (did not interact with him before triggering the Festival), Jar-Bairn did not mention poachers (after mentioning Alexander). After that, resting at the Site of Grace got Diallos to show up.
                * No time needs to pass for any of these stages. The only stage that wasn't progressed by simply reloading the zone at a Site of Grace was triggering the actual poacher attack, which required resetting another zone via Site of Grace. I traveling to the Artist's Shack nearby, rest at the Site of Grace, then traveled back and rest at the Jarberg Site.
                * The post-attack Jarberg has three stages: 1. Jar-Bairn is up the hill from a dying Diallos. Exhaust all dialog of both of them. 2. After exhausting all dialog from both, Jar-Bairn will be over Diallos' dead body (I'm assuming he's consuming the corpse like Alexander does to Radahn?). No new dialog from Jar-Bairn. 3. Jar-Bairn is back at his initial position, Diallos' body is gone and items will be there. Again, you do not need to pass any time, just rest at the Site of Grace.

                  Something to note that happened to me is that if you join the volcano manor before talking to Melina to go to the roundtable, Diallos never spawns so you cant start his quest.

                  • Anonymous

                    I feel like Diallos’s quest line is the biggest thing pointing to ER needing some other way to keep track of quests. The quest line by itself is already confusing, but it also intersects with two other pretty big quest lines (Volcano Manor and Alexander’s).

                    I’m not advocating for a quest marker or anything, but maybe some way to give hints as where to go? I remember missing this quest line for my first 3 playthroughs because you aren’t given any idea of where to look for lanya.

                      I was fighting snails in the walls of the Manor. I heard him talking through the wall. Anyone else know this?

                      • Anonymous

                        Randomly I saw that he was in Limgrave. I didn't find him while exploring and even rode past him, even when I knew where he was. If he hadn't said anything, I probably wouldn't have found him.

                        I've often noticed that the "view in the game" is very bad (Playing on PC with max settings)

                        • I can see why he was so quick to join the volcano manor. Their entire gig is murdering people and stealing their drip and taking one look at his armor proves he has a taste for fashion.

                          • Diallos leaves the Roundtable Hold after you rest at a site of grace within some particular proximity to the area he travels to, not immediately upon resting in Liurnia or beating Godrick. I've done both in this playthrough, and he's still here. I believe he'll leave once I rest at the Gate Town Bridge Site of Grace, though I'm not entirely sure.

                            • Anonymous

                              Just a warning, if you forget to talk to Diallos in Roundtable Hold, he will dissapear completely from your game after getting to Liurnia. At least he did for me. I was speedrunning ahead on my latest playthrough and forgot to speak to him, and after getting to Liurnia and going to his normal location, he was nowhere to be seen. He's not at Volcano Manor, the Roundtable Hold or Jarburg, so I can only assume that you MUST speak to him when you first see him at Roundtable Hold or it will lock you out from his quest entirely.

                                Aaaaand it all went to crap because I got into Jarburg only later in the game, didn't know any better and attacked a jar, the jar NPC which I just found out exists vanished and now I can't go on with Diallos' quest until the next run, because this little bastard won't even let me condone at the church. Thanks Miyazaki.

                                  ngl this quest made me the saddest out of every other quest in this game. Like, it almost brought a tear to my eye.

                                  I like to imagine that when my guy becomes Elden Lord, it all gets fixed somehow

                                    Ng+2, wanted to check out this quest but he didn't appear in Roundtable. Are there conditions for him to show up the first time?

                                      i'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned on the wiki, but when i played, i found Diallos in RTH li9ke normal, talked till i exhausted his dialogue, and he left. Due to whatever circumstances i did in the game, I never saw him again until I went to Volcano Manor, and found him as a white phantom, cowering in a corner. He then insinuated to use the spear meant for killing giant snakes on Rykard, and i tihnk he thanked me after killing him (i cant remember what he said, exactly, but it was different after killing rykard)

                                      Or was this a different NPC cowering in that corner?

                                      • If you're trying to get to the stage in which the village gets attacked and you find Diallos dying, I had to go to the site of grace and "Pass Time" for about 4 days before it finally progressed to that point.

                                            • Grabbing the serpent spear from inside Rykards boss chamber finally made Diallos appear in Jarburg. I didn't kill Rykard. I talked to him in Jarburg and then went back to Volcano Manor and he was still there in the hallway outside the meeting chamber talking about the spear.

                                                I think I thound a way to break his quest:

                                                Diallos moved out of Vulcano Manor and I went to Mt. Gelmir to finish the last assassination.
                                                After that i spoke to Tanith but never went to the boss (forgotten his name) because I remembered Diallos and wanted to finish hist quest before I kill the boss.
                                                Then I went to Jar-Burg where I killed a jar and now the Jar NPC vanished. (It is my first play through and I didn't knew about the second Jar NPC)

                                                Now Diallos wont appear in Jar-Burg.

                                                      While it is endearing that he laid his life down for the Pot people, he still failed in his duty. Not to mention how he so readily dismissed the murder of his childhood companion because of his inferiority-complex towards his older brother. Honestly a pathetic sort.

                                                          So I realized after getting my second letter at Volcano Manor AND defeating the second target that I never found Diallos again after the Roundtable. I traveled to Liurnia and was able to find him there. Then, I found him back at the Roundtable, talked to him more about Volcano Manor there, and now, he is at Volcano Manor despite me having completed the second letter target. I will update further when I progress!

I got Alexander to the point where I got him out of the hole in Liurnia, but he went back to Radahn's site of grace to eat dead people. I did the first mission of Volcano Manor. And I've exhausted Jar Bairn's dialogue. I've passed time to the point where in game, it's probably a week's worth of days I've skipped, and no one will move. Diallos is still sulking in Volcano Manor. The only thing that changes is sometimes Jar Bairn is asleep, and sometimes he isn't. Do I need to do Volcano Manor's second quest to move everyone forward or am I missing something else that must be done first?

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

It makes no difference tell me if you….” It’s the same after that.

                                                                        • Anonymous

Now that is a ridiculous lockout.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

I talked to him first, after acepting to be in the manor, and I went straight to Rykard boss. Patch 1.04. Got the mask and the whip in Jarburg. But... Where is his set?

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

I only got the Mask from Diallos once his body was removed. I told him he failed to protect the Jars, maybe this changed the results?

I beat the final boss & a few extra major bosses & only just brought Alexanders innards to Bairne & completed that questline.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

Jar Brian had new text but went back to how he hopes Alexander will beat up the poachers. Maybe beating Alexander in his final spot will fix it. Hope so because I wanted two whips.

                                                                                                I advanced the Volcano quest a little bit (2 or 3 kills) and he is still mute...

                                                                                                I did kill everyone in Jarburg by mistake though, so maybe that's why Diallos is locked?
