Central Yharnam (Sewer Entrance) 5198 (2318) Blood Echoes
Crow Hunter Badge

Eileen the Crow is a non-player character in Bloodborne. Wearing a Beak Mask, this hunter is a dual-wield "skill" hunter.

The Raven Hunter: A hunter with an unusual pair of warped swords. Wears a raven mantle and a doctor's mask, uses bizarre swordsmanship. Well, she seems to be an ally...

General Information

Eileen is an assassin whose sworn duty is to dispose of other hunters that have been corrupted by their lust for blood. Like the player, she hails from outside Yharnam and is a foreigner to the region, but her presence in the city is driven by an entirely different set of motives; she makes a point of keeping a low profile operating in the shadows, and you may never meet her in the first place if you don't go out of your way to explore. You can start her quest either on the Dry Dock - Rafters in Central Yharnam or to the left of the Oedon Chapel's front entrance in the Cathedral Ward, and your choices after that point will determine her fate. Helping her defeat Henryk in the Tomb of Oedon is the tipping point of her quest - failure to do so before entering the Forbidden Woods for the first time will sometimes result in her becoming your enemy, and will prevent you from receiving any of the successive rewards other than the Crow Hunter Badge. It is best to complete the Tomb of Oeden portion of the quest before progressing further.

 

Locations

  • Location 1: From the Central Yharnam Lamp: (1.) Exit the gate next to Gilbert, go down the stairs; (2.) Go left, down the next stairs, past the two brick trolls; (3.) Before the stairs going down to the elevator, turn right and head up the next stairs; (4.) Head left, around this corner, and down the stairs, towards the wolves in cages; (5.) Cross the bridge, and the lamp where the old lady is, down into the structure with a bunch of barrels; (6.) On the right side of the room, drop through the barrel blocked window onto a small walkway, and head right; (7.) Again, on the right wall, is a barrel blocked window; (8.) Enter through this window and head straight to meet with Eileen looking over the railing.
  • Location 2: From the Cathedral Ward lamp: (1.) Head straight out, (2.) Immediately turn left tight when you exit the door, and you will see her standing next to the railing; (3.) If you have seen the Lesser Amygdala, she is standing in the same location. After exiting the doorway, turn left.
    • Notes:
      • You must have opened two gates first: (A.) The large gate to the circular area, towards the Cathedral; and (2.) After going up the stairs, a short way, and turning right, you will have to pull a lever to open the smaller gate, leading back to the Cathedral Ward.
      • Killing Darkbeast Paarl may cause her to disappear.
      • Killing the Witch of Hemwick before speaking to her in Cathedral Ward will not affect her being in that location.
  • Location 3: The Tomb of Oedon. This Lamp will not be accessible and will need to be traveled to via the Central Yharnam or Cathedral Ward lamp.
  • Location 4: Fighting the Bloody Crow of Cainhurst at the Grand Cathedral. This event will occur after slaying Rom, the Vacuous Spider.
  • Location 5: There is a pool of blood, where normally the top Chapel Giant stands -- if you have failed or talked to Eileen after killing the hostile hunter and received her rewards, you may see this blood stain here.

 

Quest Line

  • Eileen can initially be found in a side room accessed from the rafters, at the Central Yharnam Sewer entrance. This entrance is hidden behind boxes and barrels near a staircase and is very close to the old lady that you can send to a safe place.
    She will give you 4 Bold Hunter's Mark and the "Shake Off Cape" Gesture (be sure to speak with her twice).
    If you miss her and complete Central Yharnam, she'll show up in Cathedral Ward.

 

  • To progress her questline, speak with her in Cathedral Ward before he night comes (examining the skull after you beat Vicar Amelia). In order to meet Eileen, you need to open all 3 gates in the area ahead for her to appear in Cathedral Ward.
    She can be found by exiting via the doorway directly in front of the Cathedral Ward lantern and immediately looking left.
    She will teach you the "Shhh!" Gesture and tell you about the Tomb of Oedon encounter. She will not appear in this location until you have opened the shortcut gate leading to the Grand Cathedral. This can be done by purchasing the Hunter Chief Emblem and clearing most of Cathedral Ward. Note: If you do not purchase the Hunter Chief Emblem, You can still open the gate via the Abandoned Old Workshop.

 

  • At the Tomb of Oedon lamp you will have to help Eileen with the fight with Henryk to receive "Approval" Gesture. You will also receive the Heir Caryll Rune from the Henryk's corpse. If she dies in this encounter, the quest line will not continue.
    Be Warned, accidentally hitting her too many times whilst trying to help with the Henryk encounter may turn her hostile after the fight. She remains hostile even if you reload the area. The Poison Knives located in the alley near Arianna can ensure Henryk dies first without risk of Eileen turning hostile. If you die during the fight but the poison kills him as you are dying, he will respawn and you will have to fight him again. The steps involving Eileen in Cathedral Ward and in the Tomb of Oedon must be done before the night comes (examining the skull after you beat Vicar Amelia). If you do that before taking care of Eileen and Henryk, these steps will be skipped and lost.

 

 

Dialogue

 

Upon speaking with her at the sewers:

Oh, a hunter, are ya? And an outsider? What a mess you've been caught up in. And tonight, of all nights."

Here, to welcome the new hunter." (Gives 'Bold Hunter's Mark' x4)

Prepare yourself for the worst. There are no humans left. They're all flesh-hungry beasts, now."

Still lingering about? What's wrong? A hunter, unnerved by a few beasts? Heh heh... No matter."

"Without fear in our hearts, we're little different from the beasts themselves." (Gives 'Shake off Cape' expression)

"What are you still doing here? Enough trembling in your boots. A hunter must hunt."

Outside Cathedral Ward:

Oh, hello there."

"Perfect timing. I must warn you..."

"...not to go near the tomb below Oedon Chapel in the Cathedral Ward."

"Henryk, an old hunter, has gone mad."

"And he's my mark..." (Gives Shh! gesture)

"Don't go near the tomb below Oedon Chapel in the Cathedral Ward."

"I have business there first..." (giggles)

After the Tomb of Oedon hunter fight:

(Breathing Heavily) "That wasn't necessary of ya."

"But you have my thanks."

"We made it with our lives... You're not bad at all."

"You must have killed Gascoigne as well then."

"He was falling apart... I'm sure it had to be done."

"But try to keep your hands clean... The Hunter should hunt Beasts."

"Leave the hunting of Hunters, to me." (Laughs) (Gives Approval gesture) (Runs away)

At the top of Grand Cathedral steps when friendly:

"Oh, is that you again?"

"I'm afraid I've made a bit of a blunder. I'm just going to have a short rest."

"Oh, don't worry, I've taken blood. Enough to save an old woman."

"No more dreams for me. This is my last chance."

"What a fool I am. I'll have to tread carefully."

"But that thing still lies in wait. Turn back. This is my score to settle." (Gives Wait gesture)

"My prey lies in wait this way. Turn back. This is my score to settle."

After the Grand Cathedral hunter fight:

"Don't you ever listen to your elders? No matter, you did save my life."

"I don't seem to be apt for this life anymore... My glory days were long ago now..."

"Hmmm, I know... Here, for you." (Gives Crow Hunter Badge, Hunter rune)

"This too is hunters' work, but bears no honor. A burden you may choose to carry."

"The decision is yours alone. Ahh, my eyes grow heavy..."

"Let me rest a while... ...I'll be fine, just wait..."

If slain by player, "You can't go on like this..."

At the Grand Cathedral, when hostile and hunting the player:

(Laughter) "Few hunters can resist the intoxication of the hunt. Look at you, just the same as all the rest..."

"The hunters must die... The nightmare must end..."

"Only I can stop this madness!" (continued laughter)

When Eileen has been significantly injured, "The beasts cannot be stopped. What good are hunters now?"

(Yelling) "Your blood is mine! A hunter's blood for me! Your punishment is death! Death to hunters!"

"Enough of this terrible dream!" (laughter)

When Eileen is slain, "...Ahh... you monsters..."

"All hunters must die!" (laughter as her body fades)

Attire

Attire worn by Eileen the Crow, Hunter of Hunters, known in particular for her crowfeather cape. The wood-carved beak contains incense to mask scents of blood and beast. Hunter of Hunters dress as crows to suggest sky burial. The first Hunter of Hunters came from a foreign land, and gave the dead a virtuous native funeral ritual, rather than impose a blasphemous Yharnam burial service upon them, with the hope that former compatriots might be returned to the skies, and find rest in a hunter's dream.

  1. Beak Mask
  2. Crowfeather Garb
  3. Crowfeather Manchettes
  4. Crowfeather Trousers

 

Lore

Eileen the Crow is the member of a covenant that hunts down hunters that begin to go insane from bloodlust or begin to turn into beasts themselves. It is unknown if other NPC characters are a part of this covenant.

Eileen seems to have been a former hunter herself at some point. If you fight Eileen and are killed by her, her dialogue "You still have dreams? ...Tell the little doll I said hello..." indicates that she knows of both the Hunter's Dream and the Plain Doll, suggesting that she was a former hunter trapped in the Dream, much like the players themselves, who managed to break free from cycle of death and awakening. In the encounter with her at the foot of the Grand Cathedral, she mentions that she no longer dreams, and therefore that death is now permanent for her.

The description of both the Crowfeather Set and the Crow Hunter Badge suggest that Eileen is from a foreign land, not a native Yharnamite; her unique accent may suggest this as well. Her Badge suggests that she is an "outsider from the hinterlands" - that is, areas of countryside away from civilization or beyond known geography, sparsely inhabited and traversed mostly by travelers. Note that this is the only mention of the hinterlands in the game.

Other Notes

  1. it seems there may be a bug that prevents players from seeing Eileen's subsequent events after the first, either due to a bug, or because of an unknown trigger. Players have reported being unable to warp to the Tomb of Oedon lamppost, but upon reaching it, no event occurs, and the post remains inactive. As this combination of events seems to both stop her quest from progressing AND removes her from the game world, it may be imperative to kill her in her initial sewer location in order to obtain her quest items and activate the Oedon chapel lamppost.
  2. If the Player enters the Forbidden Woods before fighting Henryk, Eileen will despawn and her questline will end.(killed Hemwick Witch, still at Cathedral Ward) 
  3. If the player never talked to her in her initial location she can be found in the Cathedral Ward just to the left outside the door going forward from the lamp.
  4. It appears that if you either never talk to her in the cathedral ward before she leaves, or talk to her but don't go to fight Henryk, she will spawn at the grand cathedral lamp, once completing the Rom fight, as a hostile (see video below).
  5. For the full armor set with the Blade of Mercy the combined cost is 84,000 blood echoes.
  6. If you enter Oedon Tomb and engage in battle with the hunter, Henryk, after following Eileen's previous quest requirements, Eileen will come out of hiding and help fight.
  7. Eileen does not need to be talked to outside of Cathedral Ward to not be hostile in the encounter in Grand Cathedral, however you must kill Henryk soon after she appears.
  8. The final encounter of this Questline, inside the Grand Cathedral, can be killed by his own weapon, the Chikage. All you need to do is allow him to activate its transformed state and then run out of his field of vision towards the stairs near the entrance. He will eventually run back to his starting location but not always transform his Chikage back, eventually dying from the HP drain of the weapon. This tactic is useful for players who are struggling to kill this extremely difficult enemy.
  9. Another strategy for an easy win is to stock up on Poison Knives. Aggro the enemy, then lure him out to the entrance of the Cathedral. His AI won't allow him to walk out of the Cathedral, and if you keep your distance, he will start walking back to his starting position. When he does this, you can easily poison him without the threat of a counter-attack or dodging. The effect of the poison, combined with the Chikage's drain effect if you've gotten him to two-hand his weapon, will eat through his HP quite quickly.
  10. You can also exploit the limits of his AI by luring him to the Cathedral doors, then attacking him with weapons that can out-range him. The Hunter's Axe and Threaded Cane's transformed forms work well for this strategy. Note that this strategy is still extremely risky, as he can easily one-shot you with his firearm if he shoots you while you are attacking for counter damage.
  11. The transformed Rifle Spear's strong attack is also quite effective in dealing with the hunter in the Grand Cathedral. Simply back away from the hunter until he starts walking directly towards you, then hit him with the strong attack. Try for a charge attack, but if he starts getting too close to you, release the button early. He'll get hit by the attack 95% of the time, and as it always stuns him momentarily, you'll have plenty of time to dodge away and start setting him up for the next attack. The only danger to this method is the possibility of being parried, so make sure your health bar is full before going on the offensive.
  12. Using the Choir Bell on the injured Eileen, outside of the Grand Cathedral, will result in her death.

      I fought Vicar Amelia and touched the skull and i was still able to continue her questline? All i did before that point was the absolute bare minimum to get to Cainhurst

      • If you talk to her at Cathedral Ward but don't fight Henryk quickly, she can be unfindable - I think the trigger was finding but Not killing Rom.
        Then once Rom is defeated she's in the cathedral, hostile!

          He will kill her before the poison knives finish him off, you need to pull his aggro a bit and try not to hit Eileen, which is a challenge.

            Doing a run through with my friend as a bloodtinge build and him as an arcane, and I wanted the whistle early to use for my build so I did the c.o.o.k.i.e skip and I broke this questline, lmao

              Two things to clear misconceptions:
              1. She can die during the Henryyk fight, this ends her questions as if you killed her. So don't let her die.
              2. If you want to fight Henryyk, you cannot warp to the tomb of oden lamp, you must warp to a different lamp and travel back on foot. Eelien will spawn at the tomb when you get there, otherwise she will stay at cathedral ward.

                    I dunno what the problem is, I didn't miss her quest on my first playthrough. I got all the way to the part where some random NPC ran up to me in the Gascoigne graveyard, one shot me, and then murdered Eileen offscreen while I was fighting a couple werewolves on the way back. One of From's best quests, really

                      Doesn't seem to be mentioned here unless I'm blind.
                      I've NOT spoken to Eileen in Central yharnam by sewers so when I spoke by cathedral for the 1st time I got the 1st dialogue only. Never got the 2nd one so didn't know about Henryk and bye 30k echoes. Game progress - killed cleric beast, bloodstarved, father gascoigne. Up next is vicar amelia.
                      More than that, no knowing who was fighting who I ambushed both with molotovs hence killing both.
                      Safe to assume Eileen questline is now over as her dialogue was nothing mentioned here and then just seen a crow badge.
                      Haven't played further to see if she respawns yet but based on what game this is I doubt it.
                      Be sure to talk to her both locations to avoid glitch trigger

                        idk how i bugged it, but I opened all three doors before fighting amelia. talked to her outside the ward, reloaded to see if tomb oedon is grayed out. it isn't, so go kill amelia, check again, oedon is still lit. kill witch of hemwick, tomb is still lit. go back and forth several times from the hunter's dream, eileen is still outside the ward and the tomb of oedon lamp is still lit. wtf did I do wrong??

                          I tried to heal her, when she's lying on the floor, using the spell "CHOIR BELL" before fighting the bloody crow, and this healed her somehow and made her say something new, it looked like she was alive. NOBODY HAS EVER POSTED ABOUT THIS BEFORE.

                            If I kill her prior to the Henryk fight do I miss out on his set/emote? And what other things might I miss out on?

                              Carefull, if you want to go kill hendryk, you need to do it before the Forbidden Woods. I had talk to her in Cathedral Ward, but I didn't go to the Tomb yet. After doing the forbidden woods and killling the Shadows, she's nowhere to be seen, and Henryk is not at the tomb either. This is mentionned in "other notes", but it should be mentionned in the "quest line" paragraph.
                              I haven't beaten rom yet, so I don't know if she'll come back, but I'm very dissapointed to have mess that one up...

                                  Just to clear up any confusion about the final encounter, she does survive and she gave us an Elden Ring update 6 years later so don’t worry people Eileen the Crow is doing well in retirement.

                                      She talks about the Doll if she kills you before the Blood Moon (wich means you will have to make her hostile), so that means she once dreamed too?

                                        I'm not sure if anyone mentioned before, but after you complete her questline and got the raven badge you can just kill her for 5700+ free blood echoes

                                          Fighting her is much better than the crow because it’s aggressive and paced whereas fighting the crow is extremely slow and even daring to attack twice in a row can get you instantly parried and killed it’s honestly the most boring part of a playthrough

                                            I was wondering why she wouldn't even SPAWN at the sewer location during the first 20 minutes of my NG+

                                            I realized by the line "Eileen despawns upon reaching the forbidden woods" that I royally screwed up in an amusing way:
                                            I performed the Iosfka's Clinic skip, which bypassed Amelia and the initial bosses, but the part that BROKE Eileen was the moment I lit the lantern.

                                            You see: on my first playthrough, I had reached the forbidden woods, but I never lit the lantern, for the reason that it's impractical to be there at the current level, casually. No money, no equipment, etc.

                                            But the trigger for Eileen to stop existing is the lantern. You can be present and explore most of the forbidden woods, and she'll still exist. You can even explore Byrgenwerth and meet Rom[Not kill.]

                                            And she'll still exist.That's how my first playthrough went. On my second, i thought "Must've been because I completed her questline the first time," which made zero sense even at face value, as had I visited Alfred, he'd still be present despite his questline ending. I am the leader of the confederates... and Valtr still exists, leading. So... I broke Eileen. At least she won't hunt me down later...?

                                                                  I guess running to hemwick right after opening the gates causes her to kill Henrik herself... I went to tomb of odeon and where Henryk should be there's a body of a dead beast man with a yellow jacket... I could be wrong but I haven't seen that there before

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    How weird in the last step, after killing the spider I went into the unseen village(2 lamps inside) and then I got killed so went to cathedral Ward looking for Eileen went upstairs to Grand cathedral but Eileen was outside laying in the floor covered in blood she gave me the bage and dkw else inside the cathedral there was a caryll rune but no enemies :0 I'm playing v1.0

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

Could it be possible that different versions of the game have different triggers here? It’s even on the other wiki who do all of the data mining that the Forbidden Woods title appearing on screen is what triggers her to leave but not in my game. Hemwick and early Yahar’Gul including both bosses are done too leaving the woods as the area I had to enter next to progress!

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

I had no idea she existed because I missed her first location and then I never saw her because I went through the healing workshop to get to the cathedral. I killed Rom then I heard something about Eileen, looked her up to find I missed to npc fights a bunch of***** and now she isn’t spawning at all. Just great.

She mentioned Henry, after killing him I was able to get 2 mates on bosses. But I played on NG+ on another char and then after deafeting Amelia I was trying to proc same scenario. Where is she? :D I need Henry for Shadows of Yharnam

After killing Henryk, Eileen's disembodied voice started talking to me, and it's not one of the dialogues listed above. Wish I had recorded it, since I didn't write down what she said.

Bait him enough for him to buff his weapon and he'll start taking damage. When he's taking damage, don't aggro at all, just let him walk backwards. When he stops the buff, use a long range melee to bait him into using it again, all while making sure he doesnt actually get close enough to hit you. Poison knives work too.

When I finally did beat him I actually only wasted 5 blood vials, which makes me think he may be more of a tricky opponent rather than a hard one. Okay so I had 9 bone marrow ash, and I was leveled up enough to use a cannon. The cannon really fucks him up so I would suggest using it once. I had around 6 molotovs and a few throwing knives. What I did is lure him towards the staircase as the space is much smaller and its easier to dodge, as well as escape outside. I used the cannon + bone marrow ash immediately. After wards I kept baiting him down, waiting for him to switch to two-handed. When he’s fighting two-handed its much easier to be aggressive as he can’t parry you. I was using the one handed version of Ludwig’s Blade (I would suggest using a fast weapon that is either +6 or higher). Using a fast weapon is advisable because you can still manage to land attacks on the crow even when he’s using old hunter’s bone. Whenever he switched to one handed and pistol, I would keep my distance and throw either molotovs or knives at him. Mix it up with bullets +bone marrow ash. He relies on offence so try to keep to a defensive fighting style until you’re sure you wont get parried. DO NOT allow him to land more than one hit on you unless you have an insanely long health bar. Whenever he’s fighting two-handed two hits are enough to kill you. Also, the closer you are to him when his bullets hit you, the more damage you take. The further you are, the less damage done. Hope it helped a little!

Just hold up the shield to take minimal damage (specifically from the repeater pistol) and try to use the lance's gunshot to parry.

                                                                                                                                          I killed the Witch of Hemwick but not the Shadows of Yharnam or Paarl yet and I can't find her. She's also not at her original position. Please help :c

Apparently, she despawned only after I killed Paarl, as I remember talking to her while going before Paarl to fetch Arianna from the alley. So it seems that event chain triggering her disappearance is 1) kill Paarl 2) enter Forbidden Woods.
                                                                                                                                              Shame, as I wanted to have a go at Henryk for his set....I won't be replaying, I guess.

Dialogue includes her saying “You still have dreams? Tell the little doll I said hello.” if she kills you.

All you need to do is lure him back to the bottom of the stairs and play around with his AI a bit to get an idea for where he passes that zone of no return before zombie walking back into his arena. It's about half way across the lowest platform in front of the doors. Get him to draw his sword into blood mode, dodge the attacks, and bait him into attacking towards the door. If you dodge around him at this point, you can keep whacking him repeatedly which pushes him back towards the door if your back is towards the staircase. Keep knocking him towards the door, regen stamina, and repeat until he's dead. You can do this even if you have absolutely no attack power on the weapon you're using so use whatever you'd like, as long as it's fast. Let the bleed/poison kill him for you.
