And Nito unleashed a great miasma of Death and Disease...
— Dark Souls Opening Scene


Gravelord Nito is a powerful undead lord, and likely was one long before he received the Death Soul, becoming one of the Four Lords. Nito, for his part in the ancient war of the Everlasting Dragons, wrought death and plague after their hides were left vulnerable by Gwyn's miracles.

Little is known about Nito beyond the fact that the player can assume that the Death Soul likely beckoned him in some way, enticing him to find it. Furthermore, Nito walks with a moderate limp due to a malformed leg.
