Elden Ring Lore | Dung Eater and The Omen Curse


The Dung Eater is one of the most sinister characters in all of Soulsborne history and yet there is far more to him than meets the eye. The Greater Will has chosen him to play a role in the coming days and through him we may better understand the Omen Condition and the nature of the ‘curse’.
