I'm renowned amongst the upper caste of Hallownest. ...Well I was... once, until those cretins cast me out.

Dialogue Bottom

Eternal Emilitia is an NPC in Hollow Knight. Her room provides access to a shortcut between the City of Tears and the east side of the Royal Waterways.

Emilitia used to be renowned amongst the upper caste of Hallownest but was at some point cast out by her fellows. While the rest of Hallownest's higher class has died, their bodies walking around mindlessly in the City of Tears, Emilitia managed to survive.[1] This fact brings her great happiness, causing her to laugh to herself constantly in her room.[2]

Emilitia can be found in a hidden room in the City of Tears. Her room is first only accessible through a series of hidden walls in the Royal Waterways, but after the door is opened from within it can be reentered at any point, providing an alternative entrance to the Waterways.

She can be offered a Delicate Flower, but will not accept it as she believes the flower's pure aura is no match for the light of the Pale King.

Dialogue

First Encounter Ah, what a surprise! It's not often I receive visitors. It's been so long. Ages even. I just hope my manners haven't left me. You've no doubt sensed my affluence. You're right to guess, I'm renowned amongst the upper caste of Hallownest.

...Well I was... once, until those cretins cast me out. Have you met them, my former fellows? That's them outside, their bodies shambling around all mindless and empty. And I'm still alive to witness their pathetic demise.
Ahhh, I'm just so happy. Fate can be a wonderful thing.

Listening again Isn't life just wonderful...
Returning In times past I wouldn't have spoken with your likes, but now the rest of my caste are wonderfully, distantly deceased.

If I didn't welcome you I'd never have anyone to share my happiness with.

After acquiring the King's Brand Oh... hmm... Could it be? You've returned at last? No. No...  Oh pardon me! For just a moment, I mistook a certain quality about you. You seemed almost... regal.

Silly, I know. It's clear you're not of high birth, wandering about all dirty and tattered like that.

Dream Nailed No doubt this one will meet its demise at the nails of the city's guards. I'll outlive you too little grub, as I did all the others.

Godmaster Icon When given a Delicate Flower What a curious specimen. Hah! Though even its pure aura is no match for the light of our dear King.

Keep your faint flora, bug. I've enough of my own to tend and surely you'd agree that mine are far finer.
