Oedon Chapel Dweller

General Info

Cathedral Ward Formless Oedon

The Oedon Chapel Dweller is a friendly NPC that lives in the Cathedral Ward.
He is blind. Upon speaking to him, he tells the Hunter that the incense in the Chapel Ward keeps the beasts away, and he compels the Hunter to advise anybody looking for a safe place to stay the night to come to the Oedon Chapel. Once survivors start arriving, he comments on what he makes of their character, and how willing they are to converse with him.






Upon first arriving:

Ahh, a hunter are ya? Very sorry, the incense must've masked your scent. Good, good. I've been waiting for one of your ilk. These hunts have everyone all locked up inside. Waiting for it to end... It always does, always has, y'know. Since forever. But it won't end very nicely, not this time. Even some folks hiding inside are goin' bad. The screams of wimminfolk, the stench of blood, the snarls of beasts... none of em's too uncommon now. Yharnam's done fer, I tell ya. But if you spot anyone with their wits about 'em... Tell 'em about this here Oedon Chapel. They'll be safe here. The incense wards off the beasts. Spread the word... tell 'em to come on over. If you wouldn't mind... Hee hee..."

General Dialogue (A):

Ahh, the hunter. Alive and well, are ya? This here's a safe place. Stay as long as you like. But... next time you're out on a hunt, remember what I asked. If you find any sane survivors, tell 'em to seek shelter at Oedon Chapel. Cause there's nothing to fear here... ha, hah ha!"

General Dialogue (B):

I know I shouldn't be askin' you, but... If you happen upon someone while hunting, tell 'em about this here Oedon Chapel. If they seem worth being told that is... Oh, and I do sincerely hope they are... Hee hee hee hee hee..."

Notes & Trivia

  • Note on gender discussion: in the German version of the game the Oedon Chapel Dweller is synchronized by a male voice actor. In the Spanish and Brazilian version it's dubbed by a male as well.
  • The Skeptical Man mentions him as a male. Additionally, clipping though his game model reveals no breasts.
  • He has nothing but good intentions, designed to put you off by appearance. He is extremely distraught whenever any of the survivors die and even asks to be friends with you after you bring in all possible survivors. If killed, presumably with nothing left to lose nor any reason to lie, his dying words are that he just wanted to help people.

      So apparently, after filling up the Chapel with all friendly NPCs, his dialogue changes if you kill him. Instead of saying "I only wanted to help people," he says "I only wanted to be your friend."

      And y'know what made that text even more heartbreaking? I killed everyone else in the chapel and he thought it was all his fault. He also says that his mother stated that he couldn't help people so he starts apologizing to the gods for mercy while crying. The things you gotta do to get all the items for that completionist feel v.v

        Got him and everyone in the chapel killed because I didn't know about the beggar guy, blind runs can be hard sometimes, in more ways than one. Killed him and got revenge though

          I had the old lady, skeptical man, Arianna, adella and chapel dweller in the chapel. After defeating Mergo, all of them were dead. No suspicious beggar, killed him in the woods. And Arianna was already post-partum and dead. Is this normal for all of them to die post-mergo?

            If you've killed the chapel dweller and send the old lady to the church - and kill her - he comes back l to life.

              Interesting scenario.18 Aug 2016 05:17  

              So I just loaded up the game and went to walk on the elevator to the right, but that whole area had failed to load in properly yet, causing me to fall to my death. A little salt later I decided it was no big deal, I could quickly recover them and be on my way once the elevator loaded in. But they were gone. After searching for too long, I noticed the chapel dweller's eyes were glowing, like that of an enemy who has your blood echoes. I found this small thing interesting as that must mean the game registered him as an enemy for him to take the echoes like that.

                      I can confirm that even in the Italian version of the game the voice of the Oedon Chapel Dweller is masculine.

                          If you send him here and he kills someone, then s/he won't stop repeating the same line asking if it was a beast or if someone got in.

                            Cathedral Ward Fiasco.05 Jul 2016 14:50  

                            I'm just trying to figure out how to do this quest line "right". <br/>Sent the old lady to the ward. She got mauled shortly after by the beast dude-- should've went with my instincts :/ <br/>Fine, moving on. Arianna's there now, cool, but from what I read if you bring the nun back she will kill Arianna out of jealously or something? Furthermore, if you invite the beast dude while the nun is there, he won't kill anybody. <br/>Need someone to confirm. <br/>So, what triggers the nun to kill Arianna? <br/>And is there a way to have all the NPCs co-exist, and is there a reward for doing so?

                              Did anybody notice that you can hear a baby crying in the cathedral the first time you enter it? Guy seems suspicious. Maybe he wants everyone in his cathedral to offer them to his master oedon?

                                Killed nun, maybe him too?05 Jul 2016 14:50  

                                I had the old lady and nun and after i beat Rom or the boss she disappeared once to find more sedatives i was ok with that then after i beat amygdala she had die without me talking to the stranger in the forbidden woods and i think the lesser amygdala killed her but that's what i think not sure, but the nun was going crazy n not paying her rent fee of blood n feared for the original dwellers safety so i killed her and now Agatha who was severely depressed over the tragic death of old lady-chan said a beast might've killed her and now believes the same beast killed the nun and is severely depressed. Also he mentioned his mom

                                  Killed him...05 Jul 2016 14:50  

                                  So I killed this dude early on because I thought he was an enemy... Now I don't have the option to send ariana to the chapel and I guess I can't fight the true boss since I won't be able to get the last umbilical cord piece... Frustrating.

                                      In my game, he killed the old lady first. Than he had sex with the prostitute ( the blonde girl ) !!! Yesterday i saw blood on the chair of the blonde girl, but, there were also bloodstains on the stairs... So i went down the stairs and i saw the prostitute who was crying with a baby monster in front of her, and the baby monster looks like odeon! 2 hands and a tail. So, i'm definitely gonna kill Odeon, and save the girl of the church!!!

                                        Hit him once and he says something along the lines of "I know it's my fault, just don't hit me anymore!"
