Hey everyone!
So I'm going to be trying out making some of these Dark Souls fact compilations, starting with the Four Lords. If it catches on I'll make more. Hope you guys like it, and let me know if there are any improvements I can make.
Thanks!

DARK SOULS FACTS:
GRAVELORD NITO
Nito was one of the Four Great Lords of Lordran.
As on of the Great Lords, he inherited one of the
Lord Souls from the First Flame. His soul was
called the Death Soul.
Nito was referred to as the First of the Dead. It
is implied that Nito could have been the first
giant to have ever died.
During the giants' war against the dragons,
Nito unleashed a deathly plague upon the
arch trees that the dragons called their
homes. His introduction of disease upon the
dragons helped to weaken them.
After the war, Nito made his residence in the
Tomb of the Giants, the final resting place for
many of the fallen giants. Nito used his
necromantic power to create warriors out of the
skeletons which rested there and used them to
guard him while he slumbered.
His faithful guards did not succeed in their task,
however. The necromancer Pinwheel
discovered Nito' s resting place and siphoned
power from the Gravelord for countless years.
Pinwheel' s actions would eventually leave Nito
in a weakened state.
Though Pinwheel is eventually slain, Nito is left
in his weakened state and is ultimately defeated
by the Chosen Undead.

the only thing I don't like is how you present everything as pure fact when most of it can't be confirmed
although the begining is almost certainly true

No.

Nito didn't plague the homes of the dragons, never heard of an arch tree by the way.

Gwyn peeled back their immortal scales.
The Witch of Izalith brought about great fires to burn their homes.
And the Gravelord Nito unleashed disease and death upon their exposed flesh.

Nito was the one who actually killed the dragons.

Nito is depicted as withering the root of a tree in the opening video. As the relative god of death and disease he likely did both.
The Arch Trees are mentioned in the opening video as well.

Gwyn and his knights did most of the killing however, along with Seath, who betrayed his kin by showing the giants how to tear the scales of immortality from the Everlasting Dragons.

I could see how it looks like a root, but I think that it's suppose to be the tail of a dragon.

see i always thought that wasn't a root, but a tail of dragon.

i mean while everyone else is throwing lightning and creating fire storms nito is just...gardening.. i prefer to think that his "miasma" disintegrates both the arch-trees and dragons (maybe once downed by gwyn's lighting) to properly eliminate them from existence

But as said DkS lore is VERY open and i love hearing all the way people interpret it

I actually agree with you. Gwyn handled the dragons, the Witch handled the trees, Nito did a little of both.

This is bit late and probably irrelevant now but the Undead Dragons in the Painted World and the Valley of Drakes are supposedly two of the everlasting dragons that survived the war and their appearance now is from the disease Nito unleashed upon them during the war.

Honestly don't understand where you got half of this **** from


Nito was most likely the first among the living, not just the "giants" (though I very strongly doubt Gwyn, Artorias and the other deitic figures were giants since giants aren't negatively affected by the strengthening of the Dark Souls/weakening of the Flame.

Interesting speculation, Nito is possibly trying to acquire more power by collecting as much humanity (which are shards of the Dark Soul) to create his own fragment of the Dark Soul by harvesting them from the pool in front of the bossroom.

So Pinwheel has tried to steal power from the Gravelord, but why? And why does he have that odd, twisted form? Some suggest that Pinwheel, the father, tried to steal power from Nito so that he could bring back his child and wife. Either there was a big mistake in one of his attempts to do so or Nito himself punished him, which gave him that twisted form (I'll post another pic of what Pinwheel likely looks like beneath the cloth and masks below).

I'm not too solid on my Nito lore, but isn't most of the Dark Souls Lore speculation? Granted, there's accepted things as canon because they make a lot of sense, but his explanation doesn't NOT make sense. Source for your facts would be cool too. ***** interesting.

EpicNameBro lore on youtube, mostly.
The problem I have with this content is how it uses terms such as "war of the giants", calling Nito a giant, referring to his Lord Soul as the Death Soul (I've personally never heard it being called that. The Arch Trees being the "homes" of the dragons, wut?

yeah, I've never heard the arch tree thing either. I thought that scene was just Nito "miasma-ing" a random tree or dragon. Nito being a giant is awfully far-fetched. He's certainly large.

Okay several things:
Humans didn't come along until later, after the Pygmy split his Dark Soul. Giants preceded humans and Nito was around far before the Pygmy split the Dark Soul, so it can be concluded that he was a giant.

The giants rose from underground after the four lords found The Lord Souls within the First Flame and fought a war against the Everlasting Dragons.

I can't find it right now, but I believe there is an item description which refers to the Arch Tres as the Dragons' nests. That and the opening video shows the Witch of Izalith's and her daughters burning the very same trees.

Where are you basing your first statement on? The opening citematic itself shows humans as the very first living things, though until the Furtive Pygmy who found the Dark Soul in the flame split up the soul, humans were mere hollows.

Where are you basing your origins of the giants on?

Aye, they do destroy them. But look at the trees in Lost Izalith, they don't exactly make anything very fit for life, do they?

Given that humans and standard giants look identical with the exception of size and the fact that hollows did not exist until the undead curse did a long time in the future, it stands to reason that the figures depicted are giants. It's explicitly stated that the Pygmy was the progenitor of human kind, and it makes sense. The Pygmy was a small giant, and all humans appear as small giants. He split the Dark Soul into the black sprites called Humanity to give them life.

And yeah, they so look dead. Because Nito and the Witch burned and killed the majority of them. Ever been to Ash Lake? The last remaining Everlasting Dragon nests inside an Arch Tree there.

Well, not quite. I do believe he was the first dead of Giants. Not for size reason, but because he was there around the same time as the furtive pygmy, Manus, who was the first dark soul, the first human. So, for Nito to exist at the same time, or even before Manus, is odd.
But, the first life to spring from the flames were giants. Nito, Gwyn, Witch of Izalith, etc. The Gods are just those giants who've found large souls.

The furtive pygmy is the one who had the Dark Soul first, Manus is A primordial human, not THE primordial human. Also you should definitely not take the in-game size of a creature as it's actual size. I know this sounds odd, it does, but let me explain; they increased the sizes of certain opponents (knight of berenike, who are human) in the game for a couple of reasons. One, that they're more intimidating, making the game somewhat more exciting, but the main reason is to actually make it easier for the player to see what kind of move the enemy is making.

there is not real truth in the dark souls lore, seeing much isn't specified. the lore of the games is made from most players assumptions and imaginations, with the help of item descriptions and dialogue. dark souls lore is like a great big puzzle. and no one can be entirely right seeing that we don't know what the real truth is.
