Hunter Chief Emblem

A cloth emblem that belonged to the captain of the Church hunters long ago. Opens the main gate that leads to the round plaza of the Great Cathedral.

The main gate is shut tight on nights of the hunt, and could only be opened from the other side with this emblem. In other words, the captain's return, and this emblem, determined the end of the hunt.

Hunter Chief Emblem is a Key Item in Bloodborne.


Hunter Chief Emblem Usage

  • Used to open the main gate to boss at the Grand Cathedral (can be opened from the other side by dropping to the bottom of Healing Church and using an elevator). That is the locked gate up the stairs past the first Reaper. This emblems allows you to gain access to the area with Black Church Set.







  • The description tells that it once belonged to the Chief Hunter, probably Ludwig.

      I had to double-check the price. Apparently I bought the emblem while gaining blood echoes from coldblood, now the emblem is in my inventory and I still have all 10K blood echoes as well. Free emblem bug?

        I’m curious about the translation. In English, no other hunter, IIRC, is referred to as “captain.” Grampa Wheelie’s crew are called Old Hunters and seem to have operated largely out of the public eye. Ludwig’s rank was “First Hunter.” I consider it a rank due to the fact that we know he wasn’t the first and he was just the first to galvanize and involve the public. We DO know that Cainhurst has a Captain rank, and this is very reminiscent of their style (filagree, similar to, but distinct from the neckerchief on Maria’s set). We also know Maria defected from Cainhurst at some point, which suggests contact, and there are other aspects that suggest that Cainhurst had been dealing with a similar plague or had in the past. It seems possible to me that at some point, Cainhurst and the Healing Church may have been more closely involved before whatever happened that set the Executioners off.

          I got the hunters chief emblem and used it to cover my chief. It makes one hell of a loincloth, I can now wipe as I run.

            I could've sworn this thing was worth 20,000 not 10,000.

            Maybe I'm remembering something from another Souls game.

              I say this might be a talisman of the gods, the Radiant Sword Hunter Badge says "These Hunters, Also known as Holy Blades, are what remains of an ancient line of heroes that date back to a very early age of honor and chivalry." heck, even the iron Yahar'gul Helm states "Removing the hood reveals something reminiscent of a warrior of a previous age." Maybe ludwig or someone else knew a bit about miracles from dark/demon souls. Heck, i feel the blue energy of most arcane attacks seems close enough to sorcery to me...

                This is Obviously an Handkerchief, I wonder if they got the name wrong when they translated the game to english.... it sounds very close to Hunter Chief LOL
