The Chosen Undead: ....
Not much of a talker ey? 
That's all right, where we're going, we don't need words. Welcome to the Video Game Character of the Month! 

And now some more information on The Chosen Undead: 

A silent type
Different people see different faces, clothes and sometimes a completely different gender and origin!
A knight/warrior/wanderer/thief/bandit/hunter/sorcerer/pyromancer/cleric/deprived person

Collects the souls of their dead enemies to upgrade themselves
Never pauses to restock
Likes to rest at bonfires
Probably just wants a hug

Origin of The Chosen Undead:
As stated previously, The Chosen Undead was chosen to go on a journey, fraught with danger. I've heard many different accounts of what they look like, everyone seems to have their own idea. Everyone does say this though. He/she is definitely a silent type and relentless in their ideals. 

Evolution of The Chosen Undead:
Throughout their journey, The Chosen Undead changes equipment and armour often, learns new spells and sometimes even gains a little humanity. Only the best gear is chosen to help The Chosen Undead fulfil their quest.

Dark Souls: released (Japan) on September 22nd, 2011/(North America) on October 4th, 2011/(Australia) on October 6th, 2011/(Europe) on October 6th, 2011 on Playstation 3/Xbox 360/(Australia) on August 23rd, 2012/(North America/Europe) on August 24th, 2012/(Japan) on October 25th, 2012 on PC

Well that's it for The Chosen Undead but, as always, if I've missed something out or made a mistake then please don't hesitate to comment! Or if you want a specific character to win the award then please comment as well!
