Young Yharnam Girl

General Info
Location Drops
Central Yharnam -


Young Yharnam Girl is a non-player character in Bloodborne. You will meet two girls depending on your choices, they are both the daughters of Viola & Father Gascoigne


This character can be found in Central Yharnam, behind a window. reached by going around the sewers and climbing back up a ladder past a Troll, she is next to a gate that returns you to the first Brick Troll you met. She asks that you find her mother, Viola, who has gone to look for Father Gascoigne.


Quest Progression

1. Return to her after defeating Father Gascoigne and picking up the Red Jeweled Brooch. It can be seen on the rooftop. Just go up the stairs and drop on the roof.
2. Choose whether to give her the Brooch or withhold it (withholding means use it for yourself, don't pick it up, or store it in the Hunter's Dream).
2a. If you give the Brooch to her she will no longer talk to you. Eventually she will leave her home. Defeating the pig in the sewers will yield a Red Messenger Ribbon.
2b. If you don't give her the Brooch, and have visited the Oedon Chapel about it being a safe haven, you can tell her to go there for safety. If you choose the Chapel the blood soaked ribbon will still appear on the pig.
3. Her Older Sister will appear in the window after you either gave the Brooch or told her about the Chapel, and have killed Rom the Vacuous Spider. She will ask you to find her younger sister who has a White Ribbon. Turn in the Red Messenger Ribbon.
3a. Standing outside of her window for a while will trigger a dialog of the sister talking to herself.
4. Reload the area and go down the ladder from the window to find the White Messenger Ribbon.

Alternative options:

1a. If you have visited Iosefka after defeating Father Gascoigne and been told about it being a Safe Haven you can direct her to Iosefka's Clinic. The next time you visit the clinic you will receive a Lead Elixir, but the red ribbon will not appear on the pig in the sewers, which also prevents you from getting the white ribbon. But if you now enter the clinic's back door, from the Forbidden Woods, the young girl can be found inside, transformed into a celestial being. She's the one walking back and forth in the main hallway, near the room with the Cainhurst Summons. If you kill her she will drop the Formless Oedon rune.
1b. You may also opt to never interact with her again any time after receiving the music box (or just never talking to her at all) and she will eventually disappear from the window on her own, causing a similar premature end as sending her to the clinic, but with no rewards.


First interaction with window:

Who... are you? I don't know your voice, but I know that smell... Are you a hunter? Then, please, will you look for my mum? Daddy never came back from the hunt, and she went to find him, but now she's gone, too... I'm all alone... and scared..."

  • Find Girl's Mother: "Really? Oh, thank you! My m-mum wears a red jeweled brooch. It's so big and... and beautiful. You won't miss it. Oh, I mustn't forget. If you find my mum, give her this music box. [Receive Tiny Music Box] ... It plays one of daddy's favorite songs. And when daddy forgets us we play it for him so he remembers. Mum's so silly, running off without it!"
    "My mum wears a red jeweled brooch. It's so big and beautiful. You won't miss it. Oh, and if you find her, give her this music box. Please, I know you can do it."
  • Refuse: "Oh, alright... Well th-thanks mister hunter, for talking, at least. Take care, on your hunt."
    "Thanks for chatting. Please be careful out there!"
    • After reloading: "Are you that hunter? Can you look for my mum?"

After refusing to help:

If you refuse to help and talk to her after beating Vicar Amelia and triggering nightfall, she cries: "Mum, come home... I'm alone... I'm scared... It's not fair... "

After accepting quest to find her mother:

"Hello mister(miss) hunter. Still cant find my mum?"

  • [If Brooch is in inventory]
    • Give: "Miss Hunter... was it really her?...Mummy...mummy... Don't leave me alone..."
    • Do Not Give:
      "Yes, okay. I can wait. Mum knows I'm very brave, and you're very kind. I'll be a good girl. I promise"
    • No:
      "Oh, okay. But isn't there something I can do? Maybe mum and dad are stuck out there, waiting for me to come to them. What do you think, mister(miss) hunter?"
      • Tell of Oedon Chapel: "Yes okay, thank you very much mister hunter! I love you almost as much as mum and dad, and grandad!"
      • Tell of Iosefka's Clinic:
      • Withhold Information: "Yes, i see... I can wait, I won't be afraid. I know, I do. The morning always comes."
  • After turning in the Brooch, idling outside the window for several moments will elicit the whispers of a man, saying "So, call out to your sister...".

After directing her to safety, and picking up the ribbon:

(From this point on, it's the Little Yharnam Girl's older sister speaking)"Oh, you haven't by chance... seen my little sister, have you? I told her to look after the house, but she's run off somewhere. She's still quite small, and wears a big white ribbon. Have you seen her out there anywhere?"

  • Give Red Messenger Ribbon: "Oh, how did this happen... Why would she ever go outside? At least... I'll have something to remember her by.
  • Do Not Give: "Oh, okay then. But if you do see her, would you give me word? She's a small girl, with a big white ribbon. My dear little sister..."
  • After not giving Ribbon and talking again: "Oh, back again? Any news of my sister?"

Later heard outside while near window, but without interacting with it:
"What a perfect ribbon, and now it's mine. I can't wait to try it on."
Interacting with the window at this point:
"Oh, it's wonderful..."


  • Young Yharnam Girls are Gascoigne's daughters and, very likely, Henryk's granddaughters.




Other Notes

  • If you progress too far in the story before completing the quest, it becomes impossible to complete as checking the window will yield "[No Response]" like many other windows and door around Central Yharnam.
  • A rumor states that the Yharnam Girl can reach the Cathedral Ward if the player avoids picking up her mother's brooch. This has been tested proven false.
  • To initiate this quest, seems like she must be talked to before advancing the night (Killing Vicar Amelia), else she'll say a generic line of where her mother is, followed by "No Response" if you go away and come back.
  • If she hasn't give you the Tiny Music Box yet, you can hear it playing when you are in the area nearby her window.
  • The White Messenger Ribbon is actually the very same ribbon as the Red Messenger Ribbon, the older sister only washed off the blood, which is why you can't hold both ribbons at the same time.
  • For Cannon users, it is highly recommended to send the little girl to Iosefka's Clinic due to the Formless Oedon rune, by stacking all three runes, one can fire the Cannon for up to 4 times.
  • Even if you withhold information from the little girl she (presumably) still dies. If you kill the boar in the sewage tunnel after reloading the game you will find the Red Messenger Ribbon. So it is speculated that she tried to run away from home after hearing her parents were both dead from you.

      i actually was able to progress the quest up to the point oftelling her her mom died, but ithe pig nevr dropped anything and her crying was the last dialogue of that window, i picked up the carillon right after killing gascoigne and the brooch after killing henryk, which i killed after amelia iirc.

      • 22 Jan 2017 03:03  

        So do the brick trolls change what they say after you meet the sister? It always sounded to me like they say "so cold" but in a recent playthrough I noticed after I returned to see the sister that they all seem to say "so cold, dear sister" and I sort of figured it is in some way related to the young Yharnam girl and her "sister"

          I know these games never have happy endings, but this is the only one that truly got to me. I doubt I'll ever get over it. May the good blood guide your way child.

          • 02 Dec 2016 21:39  

            That's not her older sister. Its a neighbor that lives below her. She dies falling of the ladder going back home. The young yharnam girl says she loves u almost as much as her mm dad and granddad. She doesn't mention a sister. And after giving the older sister the red ribbon she says she always wanted the ribbon and she cant wait to try it.

            • Whispers of a man27 Sep 2016 02:09  

              Anyone know what this could be about? I haven't heard it since I didn't turn the brooch in but I'm really curious about this guy being in her house and what could possibly be going on.

              • The sister's monologue11 Jul 2016 23:51  

                After going back to the area in the last moon phase, I gave the older sister the Red messenger ribbon, listened to her response, and waited around to hear her "secret" monologue outside the window. Just for advice, if you don't hear anything a moment or two thereafter, go around to the front door. That activated it for me.

                • This sucks08 Jul 2016 23:38  

                  I've always found it upsetting that you seemingly can't really save her at all. Just bums me out, you know? I over empathize with characters in almost every story I read or watch or play so when something bad happens to them, it really hits me hard.

                  • HELP FOR THE LOVE OF GOD05 Jul 2016 08:43  

                    I am new to the souls series, and to be honest this game is killing me. I have killed the first 4 bosses but apparently never found "oedens chapel" to send people there for safety. I have been lookin on the web and in game for hours now.... apparently EVERYONE except me knows its location somehow.. but I don't.. im so close to just giving up, I cant take much more... no one on the internet has asked the same question so I feel like a real moron lol

                    • M1TzHeLL05 Jul 2016 08:43  

                      Did anyone find the little girl's sister? the girl that gave you the music box before Gascoigne (she goes away and her sister comes back and ask you to find it but i never found her). She also says she's a little girl with a white ribbon.

                      • Sent her to Oedon after killing Father Gascoigne....05 Jul 2016 08:43  

                        And I never picked up the brooch. But she's not there and hasn't been for a while. What went wrong?

                        • Viola is the mother05 Jul 2016 08:43  

                          The tiny music box says it belongs to a mother and father. The father is Father G, the mother is listed as "Viola". We don't know what the little girl's name is, but Viola probably isn't it.

                          • Sending her to Chapel05 Jul 2016 08:43  

                            I've not seen anyone ever say Viola's daughter gets to the Chapel safely, and at least one person has confirmed still encountering the Older Sister in the window and progressing her with the ribbons even after sending Viola's daughter to the Chapel. <br/> <br/>Can anyone actually confirm further interaction with Viola's daughter at some later point in the game if you send her to the Chapel? If not, it seems her quest only has one ending.

                            • Waiting for extra Dialog05 Jul 2016 08:43  

                              After giving the little sister the Ribbon, waiting in the area reveals additional Dialog. <br/>Has anyone tried waiting after giving the little girl her mothers brooch? Maybe that would also reveal hidden dialog that could help save her.

                              • more extra dialog05 Jul 2016 08:43  

                                i picked up the brooch didnt give it to her, withheld info on the cathedral. after killing vicar she starts to say "mum... where are you.. im scared". at this point you can still give her the brooch, but you cant send her to the cathedral. i wonder if i should wait and see what happens.

                                • Best to consume the red brooch?05 Jul 2016 08:43  

                                  Since both sending the girl to the chapel or giving her the brooch leads to the same quest progression, is it better to just use the brooch for yourself to get the blood gem than giving it to her?

                                  • A Third Option...05 Jul 2016 08:43  

                                    I somehow completely missed her side-quest, but when I went back to the Central Yharnam lamp after defeating Rom, the bars on her windows were torn outward, and there was an enemy standing near it. Killing it dropped a more powerful "Clawmark" rune (20%).

                                    • Mysterious man05 Jul 2016 08:43  

                                      I came back to the window after killing Rom expecting her sister and heard a man's voice, as far as i know this isn't on the wiki, But he tells you to find the "Ancient shrouded church". I didnt get a name but his voice actor sounds very familiar too.

                                      • She's gone.05 Jul 2016 08:43  

                                        I totally forgot about her and killed Bloodstarved Beast, and Emelia. The window isn't lit up anymore and when I went to kill the pig, I just got the messenger red ribbon. So, I screwed up her quest line?

                                        • It's not [No Response]05 Jul 2016 08:43  

                                          After picking up the ribbon, you can talk to the little girl's older sister when you return to the window (unless perhaps you progressed too far in the story before doing so, in which case it may say [No Response] like it does with many other windows in Yharnam later in the game). You can give her the Red Messenger Ribbon, making her upset about her sister's death. If you do so and return later, you'll notice she'll have started going crazy, talking about how beautiful the ribbon is and how happy she is to have it. If you then return later once again, you can find her dead at the foot of the ladder next to the window, and pick up the White Messenger Ribbon.

                                          • Is she really a sister??05 Jul 2016 08:43  

                                            The suspicious "older sister" might not be who she say she is. <br/>For one, the musicbox girl never mentioned anything about siblings, and she pretty much lists off all of her family member including a grandad who we know nothing about yet. Also, I think the older sister is the girl who was in the house below the musicbox girl, and if so why is she in a separate house so close to her "sister"? <br/> I think the "older sister" is someone who wanted the musicbox girl killed or coveting the ribbon. Not sure what is so "wonderful" about the musicbox girl being dead, but she was pleased to have the bloody ribbon for sure. She is clearly insane, and I think she went in to the musicbox girl's house to look for the ribbon or something, met the hunter and lied to our faces about her being the sister.
