Lady Camilla


Interactive map

I was your herald, back when you were first exploring Tyria with Destiny's Edge. You must have gotten all my letters?

Lady Camilla Einshorn

Lady Camilla Einshorn is the Pact Commander's personal herald who has been documenting their rise as well as their legend and exploits and informing them of events taking place in dungeons. Her identity is revealed once she appears for the first time in person in the Domain of Kourna. Talking to her for the first time unlocks Rude Awakening, The Tyrian Service Medal and The Gandaran Service Medal.


Personal story[edit]

Lady Camilla Einshorn was a collector of tales of great daring and heroism and learned of the deeds of the hero, who would become known as the Pact Commander, from stories that had been reported to her in 1325 AE. She spoke with the Commander's mentor from Destiny's Edge who suggested that she contact the hero to add their stories to her collection.

In her first letter, Camilla did not outright name herself, preferring to go by "Your Herald" while explaining some of her background and asking for a favor from the Commander. She was curious about the reasons why Destiny's Edge had fallen apart since 1320 AE and hoped that the Commander could help her uncover what had happened while making sure the Commander was kept up to date with what Destiny's Edge members were doing in Tyria.[1]

Throughout the year, the Commander used the provided information to help Destiny's Edge fight their way through various dangerous dungeons while Camilla often contacted Destiny's Edge members to investigate matters in various locations or call some members to help others as was the case with summoning Logan Thackeray and Rytlock Brimstone to assist Zojja in the Crucible of Eternity. After defeating initial threats in each dungeon and seeing Destiny's Edge members move on to other challenges, the Commander received more letters from Camilla who urged the Commander to continue exploring the dungeons while bringing attention to lingering issues such as rising threats and surviving enemies of whom she had been informed.[2]

Living World Season 4[edit]

Lady Camilla continued chronicling the Pact Commander's actions in the following years and eventually decided to meet them face to face after traveling to the Domain of Kourna alongside other allies in the war against Palawa Joko in 1331 AE. Upon settling in Zelbahn Garrison which the Commander had cleared of hostile Awakened forces, Camilla sent a letter to the Commander and asked for a meeting. Upon encountering her idol, she could hardly contain her excitement before finally introducing herself as the mysterious Herald from the Commander's past.[3]

With the proper introductions done, Camilla proposed to create a banner wrought from the very best material which the Commander could carry into battle as a personal item to inspire both valor and terror. In exchange for making the banner and a suitable ornament for it, she asked the Commander to hunt for rare materials in Kourna and to spread their fame by participating in heroic battles throughout Tyria. With the deeds done and crafting finished by both Camilla and the Commander, she presented her idol with her ultimate gift: the Ascended Banner of the Dauntless Commander.

In 1332 AE, Camilla joined the allied forces who traveled from Central Tyria and Elona to aid the Commander in the war against the Elder Dragon Kralkatorrik. After arriving at the Auditorium of Thunderhead Keep, she witnessed the Commander's inspirational speech on the eve of battle and participated in the fight against Kralkatorrik when the Elder Dragon was lured into the keep. Although the allied forces were able to wound Kralkatorrik, the Crystal Dragon successfully killed the Commander's dragon companion Aurene before departing from the keep and left the Commander and allies mourning Aurene's passing.

The Icebrood Saga[edit]

In 1333 AE, Camilla followed the Order of the Crystal Bloom to the Eye of the North to eventually join the Commander and Aurene there, helping with arranging additional services for the halls.[4] When the Commander's allies from various factions were gathering at the Eye of the North to offer their assistance in the war against the rival Elder Dragons Jormag and Primordus, Camilla suggested that the Commander help weaponsmiths and various soldiers by boosting their morale and that the Commander should lead by example and travel to zones suffering from dragon minion incursions.

Domain of Kourna[edit]

Oh my! It's really you. You're even more majestic in the flesh.
(on first interaction, unlocks Rude Awakening, The Tyrian Service Medal and The Gandaran Service Medal)
Talk more option tango.png Pardon me, do we know each other?
Yes! Well, no. Not exactly. I'm your herald. I've been chronicling your heroic exploits. You've received my correspondence before.
Talk more option tango.png I'm honored to have such a dedicated fan. What are you doing here?
I've come with a proposal. I wish to create a monument to your greatness. Nothing so trivial as a portrait or statue—rather, an item you can carry into battle to inspire both valor AND terror.
Talk more option tango.png Intriguing. What sort of item?
A banner, wrought from the very best materials—which are very hard to find. Fortunately, you're here! Bring the me [sic] items I've listed, and I will fashion you the most exquisite banner you've ever seen.
Talk end option tango.png I should have figured there was a catch. Okay. I'm on it.
(after obtaining Banner Ornament)
Talk more option tango.png Say, can we add this ornament to the banner?
THAT ornament? I mean, it's... well, it's a rather unremarkable adornment, isn't it? Hardly befitting your legend.
Talk more option tango.png Oh. Okay.
Now now, hold on, let me apply a little something here... Ah, there. I've imbued it with magic that should resonate with heroic deeds.
Talk more option tango.png And now we add it to the banner?
What? No, no! It isn't worthy of you yet—it needs to bear witness to your greatness. Travel about Gandara and Tyria. Perform mighty deeds. Slay fearsome beasts. Steep it into your heroism.
Talk end option tango.png I'll see what I can do.
(on subsequent interactions)
Talk merchant tango.png What have you got for me?
Talk end option tango.png I have to go.

Eye of the North[edit]

Visions of the Past: Steel and Fire
<Character name>! I heard you and Aurene were here, so I followed the Crystal Bloom to join you. These halls are legendary. And a good place to make your own.
Talk more option tango.png Make my own?
Just say the word, and I'll arrange for more services here to support you. You could do a lot with this place.
Talk merchant tango.png What kind of services are we talking about here?
Talk end option tango.png I'll let you know.
Talk end option tango.png Let's talk later.
ChampionsChapter 1: Truce
<Character name>, everyone's been gathering here to help you and Aurene against the dragons. I'll do what I can—let me know if you need an update!
Talk more option tango.png It looks like new allies are gathering here.
Everyone is pulling together. The newcomers would appreciate your help boosting morale and supplies—talk with their quartermaster to find out what they need!
Talk end option tango.png Thanks, I'm on my way.
Talk more option tango.png I see more weaponsmiths have arrived.
They're developing weapons that harness Aurene's blessing. Should come in handy against the Elder Dragons. See if you can help them. I bet they'd appreciate it.
Talk end option tango.png Got it.
Talk more option tango.png How's everyone holding up?
To tell the truth, people are scared. It would help to see you leading the charge. We're routing the asura gate directly to hot zones.
Talk end option tango.png I'm on my way.
Talk merchant tango.png Let's look at services to recruit for the Eye of the North.
Talk end option tango.png Let's talk later.

Dungeon Rush[edit]

Commander, it's been too long. My little archive on you has gotten...well, not so little. Are you eager for exploration? The dungeons beckon your mastery. Drafty halls filled with ghosts. Scalding—
Talk more option tango.png Show me the achievements. Not initially shown.
Talk ls option tango.png Dungeon-delving, eh? In this economy?
Indeed. A good tumble through the darkest manors and caves in our known world. To an archivist like myself? A dream to observe. Our darkest secrets cling to those places. Histories, buried.
Talk ls option tango.png Sounds exciting enough. I'm always down for a good tumble.
Thought you might. The world is often distracted by large events. Exploring the histories beneath our feet—the creatures and foes that linger in shadows. That's where heroism is born.
Talk ls option tango.png Sounds like I have some crawlspaces to explore. Awarded Deputized for Dungeons.
Talk end option tango.png As always, your enthusiasm...beams? That a writerly world? I'll get delving.
Talk more option tango.png So you've been keeping busy then, Camilla?
If this character has completed part of Secrets of the Obscure.
Indeed. As have you, dearest. All of Kryta's been in a bit of a tizzy since that tower vanished, but you... Little more hands-on with that incident, were we?
Talk more option tango.png I... No idea what you're talking about.
I heard that you'd gone to Garenhoff to investigate! Fought one of the beasts in the country. Is my information false...?
Talk end option tango.png Garenhoff! Right! THAT Garenhoff. Hold that thought—I need to...go.
If not
I've been quite occupied following a series of disturbances in the country. Dire times all around, it seems. I'm eager to pivot my mind to more heroic feats, living vicariously through my dungeoneer.
Talk end option tango.png Can't keep this lady waiting, then.
Talk end option tango.png Hold those many thoughts, Camilla. I'll be back.


I didn't see you there.
It's hard to prosper nowadays, but we try.
How do you do?
How can I help you.
