Hodrick in unkindled form is a well hidden secret with a very limited window and must be done before encountering the Curse-rotted Greatwood in Undead Settlement.
From the burning tree near the Undead Settlement bonfire, take the bridge and then pass along the right side of the buildings to reach the rooftops. This path leads to an area with a Hollow Manservant, who has a cage attached to his back. Sneak up behind him and examine the cage to be teleported to the Pit of Hollows, where you can encounter Hodrick for the Mound-makers covenant and a Homeward Bone .
