In Cinders the player can start a relationship with some of the characters from the game.

To do this the player first has to obtain the Ring of Betrothal, and then talk with the choosen candidate.

Once proposed, a flirt option will unlock with that character. This option has three outcomes and is randomized upon resting at a bonfire. Getting a "good" outcome will reward the player with a unique gift, specific to that character.

  • Starting the next playthrough after defeating Soul of Cinder or using the NG+ Giant Tree will reset the relationship status.
  • The Fire Keeper is the only character with a special event from her 'Seduce' menu option after proposing to her.
  • Proposing to Yoel of Londor enables an alternative questline for the Lord of Hollows ending (check his page for more information about it).
  • It is possible to divorce a married character by talking to them and selecting the 'Divorce' option, but this will not return the Ring of Betrothal to the player.
