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. Walk away from her window and past the gate 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 killed by you.
  • It is possible that the older girl is not in fact Gascoigne's daughter, as the younger girl never mentions her and the older girl hesitates before asking if you've seen "[her] little sister". The older girl seems much more concerned about acquiring the younger girl's ribbon than her well being as well. Additionally the voice heard talking about the sister may just be the troll at the bottom of the ladder.

        If you don't want them dead, don't start the questline. Not even one dialogue line. Avoid that window like a Winter Lantern. It's the only "solution" that doesn't give the pig a blood ribbon at any point in the game or turn her into a celestial. What happens then is anyone's guess, but headcanon is way preferable to any of the alternatives.

            It's very unlikely Henryk is related by blood to either Gascoigne or his wife. Henryk is black, whereas Viola, Gascoigne and the presumable older daughter are white. (You never see the little girl from the beginning, but considering her family she must be white as well. )

              i tried to save the girl but couldn't maybe using the red jeweled brooch on the altar of despair and her mum revived and everyone was happy . maybe using the red messenger ribbon will have a similar effect?

                The voice talking about the sister is definitely the troll at the bottom of the ladder, if he's dead the line doesn't play, and it gets louder if you sneak up to him.

                  I was thinking If I kill the giant pig and (just to be sure) the brick troll, and then talk to the girl whiteout reloading the area, could be possible for her to reach the Chapel?

                    In the dialogue section it says that idling after turning in the brooch causes a man's voice to say "so call out to your sister" but that's not true. That actually comes from the brick troll at the bottom of the ladder, because they occasionally whisper "it's so cold... dear sister". I think whoever put that in made a mistake

                      I killed wet nurse and went back to the house where the little girl was. I’ve completed her entire quest line so the house was empty. As soon as I approached the area i heard the tune of the music box/Mergo’s lullaby. Has someone experienced this too?

                        I think they could’ve done better with this character. It would be more interesting if she could make it to Oedon Chapel where you could converse and learn more about Yharnam’s history or Gascoigne.

                          Don't bring the broach back to the daughter. Bring her the Yharnam Stone that you get from the Chalice Dungeon. If you use the broach and make it into a gem, then kill the blood queen for the Yharnam Stone, bring that back to the daughter and she'll give you the "Yharnam Haze" which can then be applied to whatever weapon of your choice. This will transform whatever weapon you choose into a lightsaber-type weapon. This is extremely useful for going into the DLC because the Yharnam Haze weapon will pretty much mow down anything.

                            I don't know how or why, but now after I killed Rom the retarded spider instead of the older sister there speaks a guy that can be normally spoken through a door in old yharnam. He says something about going right at the church where you fight Amelia Vicar (I think that was her name). Any clue why's that or does anyone have that happen to them before?

                              It is not a man who's whispering, it's the Brick Troll down the Ladder. Actually all the Brick Trolls say this "Oh so cold, dear sister...", or whatever thing. Not just this one.

                                "...after hearing both of her parents were killed by you". Umm... what? I remember only killing only Gascoigne, not Viola.

                                  I haven't seen it mentioned so I'm gonna mention it. You can keep both ribbons if you equip the red ribbon to your messengers and then give it to her. She gives you the white ribbon, and you keep the red one since it's currently equipped.

                                    Ok, so seeing a comment here saying that the girl goes to the clinic after the blood moon. Well... I tested this and this is wrong. I can't see her anywhere and I haven't talked to her on that character. So, if you don't talk to her, that's the best thing to do.

                                      Its easy to see why devs made the quest this way. If the child went to the OC the player would b able to kill her. And that is taboo in games

                                        I got the music box but forgot to return to her before beating Vicar. Now I get the "its not fair" dialogue even with the music box in inventory. Did I ruin the questline?

                                          So, going through the comments it's evident that every single option when interacting with the girls leads to the same result - the older one killing herself and the other serving as dinner. Just for the sake of exhausting all possibilities, what happens if you don't even start a conversation with the girl in the first two moon phases? No one to my knowledge wrote about it.

                                          Also, the "So cold, dear sister." line is absolutely unrelated to the girls. I clearly heard the troll that sends the flaming ball rolling down the Yharnam bridge say it.

                                            Wtf, is that really how it ends? A greedy sounding older sister going "yay, I got the ribbon, who cares that my little sister is dead"? damn it, bloodborn... tug at my heart strings then snip them with a pair of rust scissors. -Dakuu75
