Narrow-Minded Man or Skeptical Man is an NPC in Bloodborne.

" A skeptical man situated in the building directly across from Arianna's home, is incredibly distrustful of hunters."

Narrow-Minded Man Information

  • After Arianna has asked for somewhere safe to go and is sent to the location provided the Skeptical Man will ask the Hunter what their deal is and what location they should go to. The Skeptical Man will go to the location OPPOSITE of what he is told. For example if the Hunter tells him to go to the Oedon Chapel  he will go to Iosefka's Clinic.
  • If you wish for him to survive safely with the other NPC's tell him to go to Iosefka's Clinic and he will arrive at the Oedon Chapel instead.
  • Drops 118 Blood Echoes and 3x Pungent Blood Cocktail if killed.
  • Drops 3x Pungent Blood Cocktail when changed into a Passive Celestial Emissary in Iosefka Clinic.


Narrow-Minded Man Location

Cathedral Ward directly across from Arianna's window.


  • Add dialogue here



  • Any lore notes go here.


Other Notes:

  1. Is incredibly distrustful of hunters and when asking where to go for safety will go to the opposite location of what he is told.
  2. Believes the Hunter is tricking the local civilians of Yharnam.
  3. His attire can be found on the streets below the Healing Church workshop tower. He also wears Gehrman's Hunter Trousers.
  4. Will periodically provide the Hunter with tidbits of advice. In each case, the exact opposite of his advice is true.

      Weirdly enough, even though what he says is lies, his advice about the blind man is actually really useful.

        is it really strange that i somehow managed to get the tonsil stone from the narrow minded man? i mean, i didn't have access to forbidden woods yet so it threw me off when he gave a different toned dialogue and gave me it. Wasn't the one guy in forbidden woods the only way to get tonsil stone?

          "Ah, your lies spin a web, but I see through your deceit. I did not learn from books. No, no, no! I learned it all with my own mind." This random dude just goes ahead and blurts the entire point of the game, lol.

              I killed Iosefka before talking to him05 Jul 2016 14:45  

              So I didn't know he could be rescued and I killed Iosefka before talking to him now when he ask me where to go the only option I have is Oedon chapel which if I tell him to go there he will go to the clinic, is there any way to avoid it? Even though he won't die since I killed Iosefka (I think)

                  I didn't unlock the ability to send survivors to Iosefka's clinic, can I still get him to go to the church? I'm guessing I can't just by withholding information?

                        Least Favourite Character in Bloodborne05 Jul 2016 14:45  

                        Out of all the characters in the game he's my least favourite. He never develops, has no interesting storyline and constantly calls you a liar. You have to lie to him because he's such a halfwit just to keep him alive and he remains ungrateful like that old hag but at least she gets nicer ... kind of. Actually she scares me more so when she's kinder.

                          te ago Had something weird happen. i already had everyone at the Chapel (dweller Even Said so) and continued playing. After killing wet nurse i came back and the dweller told me about a new arrival. i wondered if she ment the hookers baby, but still looked for anyone new. the skeptical man now has a different voice that Sounds much more Kind and friendly. he still says the Same sentence though (he just dropped a some 'no's)

                            Rejected all my choices05 Jul 2016 14:45  

                            After sending the prostitute to chapel, his dialog starts by saying he overheard our convo, so I suggested the clinic and he rejected it; then suggested the chapel and he rejected it. Finally, with held the info option and he calls me a lier lol. i walked away, came back and tried to switch things around and still the same reaction, but when i traveled to the Hunter's Dream and back to the chapel, this dbag appears where I want him to be with the other suvivors. Bug?

                                If you tell him to go to the chapel, he will still go to iosefka's clinic even if you have never talked with iosefka and she hasn't asked you to bring in survivors. How would he even know about the clinic?

                                    He was killed in NG+05 Jul 2016 14:45  

                                    So as i was playing in NG+ i sended him to clinic meaning he went to to the chapel. Old woman was there already and was starting to lose it. After i sent the prostitute and nun in, he stated how prostitute hates the nun and after i sent the beggar into the chapel, i went there and the skeptical man was nowhere to be found only 3 Pungent Blood Cocktails were in his place and blood splatters. Old woman weren't freaking out anymore and was actually nice and gave 6 Sedatives total when you poured your griefs to her. When i gave back from Hunter's Dream, old woman was gone and chair had a note stating that she'll be back.
