The Nameless King, also known as the King of the Storm, is an optional boss in Dark Souls III. He is a giant golden-armored man with long strands of bristling ash for hair, who wields a massive spear and rides atop a huge corvine dragon.
The Nameless King was a dragon-slaying god of war in the Age of the Gods and heir to lightning, until he sacrificed everything to ally with the ancient dragons. He tamed a Stormdrake and formed a close bond with it, leading it to countless battles.
It is heavily implied that the Nameless King is the long-speculated firstborn child of Gwyn, Lord of Sunlight.
