11 Old-Timey Words Dark Souls Taught Us
It is no surprise that the old-fashioned medieval fantasy world of the Souls series uses words that are not part of the common vernacular used today. To build a more believable world in Dark Souls, the writers had to dig deep and use words that would make sense not only for the terrifying world they built, but for the mysterious characters themselves.
The Xanthous King Jeremiah is a dark spirit who can invade your game while inside the Painted World of Ariamis. His form inside the game glows a reddish-brown and he has a rather large mummified head. While he has the title of king, no one is certain which kingdom he leads or where he is even from. After players defeat Xanthous they can receive the Xanthous armor set.
Xanthous means marked by yellow coloration, which makes sense since the armor set you receive is a yellow-brown color.
