There are no friendships in Dark Souls 3. Only alliances, each as ephemeral as a character's shadowy motivations and the undead curse's slow march on their sanity allow. Slave Knight Gael entered Dark Souls 3 canon as an ally in the game's first expansion, Ashes of Ariandel. In The Ringed City, the tables turn: Slave Knight Gael bars your path at the end of the expansion. Like a faithful dog turned rabid, he must be put down.
