What do I say to Scholar of the First Sin?
The Scholar can be found right in the first room of the Undead Crypt near the first bonfire (teleporting to this bonfire takes the player directly to it). Talk to the Scholar until it asks you whether the player desires peace and choose “Yes.” When the dialogue is finished, the Scholar will disappear.

Why is it called Scholar of the First Sin?
The scholar describes how the old Lord of Sunlight expelled the darkness, and began the cycle of light and dark.

They became less than what they were, and to Aldia, this is the first sin he has taken his name from.
What happens if you light a torch in the undead crypt?
If you light it with your torch, it will illuminate the area greatly BUT it will also spawn 11 non-respawning Insolent Spirits in the level so think twice. The first of them will already spawn behind you right, the second one can be found up on the ledge you jumped down to get here.
